SEO results for clients vary greatly depending on the competition and the monthly investment. Competition is high if your competitors are doing SEO, have websites that have been online longer than yours, have a big social media presence, have good quality links, have many blog posts on their website, blog regularly, and have lots of reviews on Google Plus.

 

SEO Case Study 1

Industry – Window Tinting

Investment – to get these results was $1000 a month since May 2016
(to get the same results now with a new website would require $1000 – $1500/month)

Senario – 4 year old Website with no SEO

Problem: Wanted to grow their business significantly

Input by Client – None until late 2018 when they started to work on social media

Things to note –  SEO is a long term strategy with the results being exponential over time.

 

Google Analytics Organic Traffic RESULTS

We started SEO in May 2016 with 181 sessions for the month. By December they had nearly 5 times the traffic. By Jan 2018 they had 5 times the traffic again. In 2018 traffic started to stabilise as their keywords ranked in the top 3 on the 1st page of Google.

Traffic is seasonal with many more people wanting their services in the summer months

 

SEMRush Data

The graph below shows that the website had been running since 2012 with almost no organic traffic.
SEMRush says that if someone tried to get the traffic right now with Google Ads that we are generating with SEO it would cost the client AUS $8,800 per month. As they are only investing $1000 a month with us they are saving a significant amount of money compared to if they were trying to get this traffic with ads

SEO Case Study 2

Industry – Turf and Landscaping

Investment – to get these results was $750 a month since May 2016
(to get the same results now would require at least $750 – $1200/month)

Senario – Website was with another SEO company who were doing questionable SEO

Problem – Wanted to grow their business

Input by Client – None 

Things to note –  This website already had significant traffic from Google when we started SEO

 

Google Analytics Organic Traffic RESULTS

We started SEO in May 2016 and grew the traffic with a peak in Nov 2016. The website theme was then changed and the theme was incompatible with Google analytics and so mobile traffic (in orange) was not recorded in Organic traffic like it normally is. You can see when the theme changed again in June 2018 we were able to get the correct data.

From Nov 2016 (1951) to Nov 2018 (2748) we grew the traffic by 40%

SEMRush Data

In the graph below you can see that the website had been running since 2013.
SEMRush says that if someone tried to get the traffic right now with Google Ads that we are generating with SEO it would cost the client AUS $12,900 per month. As they are only investing $750 a month with us they are saving a significant amount of money compared to if they were trying to get this traffic with ads

(to get the same results now would require at least $500 – $1000/month)

Senario– 2.5 year old website with little SEO

Things to note –  December is a bad month as fewer people search for this service over Christmas time
