Retail Site Struggled to Rank for Target Terms for Battery Sales

A small company that sells batteries online struggled to rank for two target keywords: “motorcycle battery” and “motorcycle batteries.”  In addition, the company had site architecture issues and heavy competition in the space from a startup firm that provided the same services.

Pole Position Marketing Performed Link Maintenance to Drive Traffic

Pole Position Marketing removed no-follow links from the battery sale company's product pages, which allowed search engines to index all product pages more easily (as opposed to just the target motorcycle battery terms).

While this move drove down the authority of the top-ranking category pages, rankings and traffic for product pages shot up.

Pole Position Marketing also established and managed PPC campaigns and consulted with the battery retailer on its social media strategy. 

Pole Position Marketing Increased Organic Traffic & Revenue

Search volume for all product pages exceeded search traffic for the original, higher level keywords after Pole Position Marketing removed no-follow links.
