They assist in a wide range of world immigration services, providing specialist advice and legal assistance around UK immigration, Australian Immigration, New Zealand Immigration, Canadian Immigration and US Immigration to individuals and corporate clients.
Capital Visas had a very clear plan when they approached SEOValley that is to expand their services globally with an aim to offer legal immigration services to Australia, Canada, USA, South Africa and the UK. SEO was on top of their marketing plan to achieve this goal. They were already using an SEO company but after working for some time with them the results they've been achieving have flattened and it is for this reason that they wanted to use SEOValley's experience and expertise in SEO to apply some unique plans to improve the rankings further and boost the traffic on the website. In the client's own words - "Our previous SEO guys promised a host of SEO technique but did not deliver on all of them".
They had some respectable rankings when they contacted SEOValley but were not ranked in the Top 10 on Google for several important keywords. With a clear cut goal of improving the rankings for the keywords already being used by the current SEO Company, finding unique ways to improve the rankings further along with a target to increase the visitors by multiple folds we set on sail to make this campaign a success for everyone involved.
After discussion with the client we finalized a set of 60 keywords with defined timeline for first page rankings for each of them. We first set a plan to get more number of quality backlinks through various off-page activities. This also included embarking a budget for backlinks through paid services such as paid PR publishing, paid directory listings on dir.yahoo.com etc. The previous SEO Company didn't touch the page structure which was not quite well designed from the SEO perspective. The SEOValley team started with identifying the best landing pages for each or a group of keywords and made recommendation to improve the page elements such as heading tags, bread crumb links, meta tags, page content keyword density, keyword placement and keyword proximity.
After just 4 months, the website started to rank high on the first page of Google for all the core keywords they deemed most important: UK visas, UK immigrant visa, British visas etc. We set a target for 30 keywords to get ranked on the first page of Google and within 3-4 months after SEO implementation out of 30 we managed to get 25 on the first page within 3 months. The improved rankings helped improve the traffic on the website significantly as well.
