SEO for Online Tiles Shop - Client Case Study

ExtraDigital was first approached to undertake SEO work for an eCommerce tile shop back in 2011. The client was having difficulties in getting a good return on investment for their SEO work and wanted assistance and consultancy with onsite optimisation to increase their revenue and grow their business.

The client was having difficulties in getting a good return on their SEO investment and wanted help and advice with improving their SEO on the website and growing their business.

SEO for Tiles Shop: Approach

The first step was to do detailed keyword analysis and examine current site data and sales conversions to identify areas for improvement.

Our experience developer team used their detailed understanding of technical SEO to review the site structure and code, identifying where both SEO and customer experience could be made better.

Our content marketers reviewed the site pages and also identified where these could be made more effective for both SEO and sales generation.

Highlights from the review period included:

  • Focus on keywords areas that bring larger and more valuable sales (often long-tail)
  • SEO theming of the website for the broad phrase coverage "tiles"
  • Category level SEO for broad phrases such as "bathroom tiles,"wall tiles" and "mosaic tiles"
  • Recommend wireframe and design improvements to increase conversions
  • Optimise metadata to improve search clickthrough rates
  • Better code level optimisation, accessibility and validation to improve search engine crawl rates and customer experience
