A small retail website lacked first-page rankings for the majority of its target keywords and moved to a new domain with a bad SEO history. Coalition Technologies addressed the negative SEO indicators for the site with an on-site heavy campaign, resulting in improved rankings and a positive impact on the retail business’ bottom line.
