Gopak sells lightweight, portable folding aluminium tables, chairs and staging. The company started in 1947 as a one man operation, manufacturing innovative pieces of furniture from a small workshop in East Sussex. They now sell hundreds of items, many of which are made to order. Their website has enabled them to extend their reach to the whole of the UK, and search engine optimisation (SEO) was essential for allowing them to reach the widest possible audience.

The Business Brief:

Gopak tasked SiteVisibility with continuing the results achieved after their initial SEO Audit. The goals of the on-going campaign were to increase organic traffic and the revenue from organic traffic, as well as increase the overall efficiency of the paid search campaign.

Our Strategy:

We designed our integrated organic and paid search campaign in order to establish long-term results, and we focused on:

  • Linkbuilding and direct customer engagement with Yahoo! Answers.
  • Directory submissions.
  • Direct communication with potential customers in various forums.
  • Backlink analysis.
  • Conversion optimisation.
  • Creation and syndication of keyword rich articles.
  • Meta-data recommendations for new pages.
  • Reducing overall Cost of Sale for Paid Search.
  • The Results:
