The Challenge We faced

This vehicle's history provider does almost all its business online. Their website is the face of the company. People from all over the country can search for used cars and history reports for their town or city.
The company wanted to target local searches seeking vehicle history reports. The aim was to grow their business through an increase in organic traffic. The company knew it was popular with customers and had a good reputation. They wanted to leverage this to generate more local leads.
The challenge we faced was developing a strategy that boosted local SEO and brought qualified traffic to the site. The current site traffic was inconsistent and not delivering desired results. We audited the site and identify areas that needed work. We had committed results to them and had to get up to speed quickly.
