At the outset of our SEO efforts in early 2023, we encountered several significant challenges for a prominent chemical manufacturing company based in Indiana, which primarily operated its business offline:
Unfriendly Website Structure:The website’s structure was not user-friendly, making it difficult for visitors to navigate and find information effectively.
Complex Ecommerce Purchase Options: While the website was intended for ecommerce, the user purchase process was overly complex, potentially hindering conversions.
Incomplete Product Descriptions: Despite a wide range of products, many lacked comprehensive descriptions, making it challenging for customers to make informed decisions.
Low Website Authority: Despite the company’s strong offline reputation, the website had low authority in the digital sphere, affecting its visibility in search engines.
Unoptimized Pages: The website’s pages were not optimized for search engines, impacting its search rankings and discoverability.
Technical SEO Issues: Numerous technical SEO issues existed on the site, such as broken links, slow page speed, and duplicate content, which required immediate attention.
Domain Redirection Challenges: We needed to implement domain redirection strategies to update the website’s structure without losing existing traffic and data.
Local SEO: One of the significant challenges we encountered was the lack of exposure in local SEO. The websites in question had minimal to no local SEO exposure, making it difficult to tap into the local customer base and attract nearby potential clients.
In response to these challenges, we formulated a comprehensive solution to enhance the online presence and address these obstacles.
