Featured Client: How Blue Corona’s SEO Services Helped One Columbus Home Services Company
One Columbus-based home services contractor came to Blue Corona with one major problem: they knew that their potential customers were searching for their services online, but were losing business to their competitors without a presence on the first page of Google search results.
We started by putting tracked lines and URLs on all their marketing strategies to figure out which ones were generating leads and at what cost per lead. In order to maximize this Columbus contractor’s search engine real estate, Blue Corona’s SEO and content marketing team fine-tuned existing website content while aggressively building out new content— making sure all services (from installation to repair to maintenance) and brands they carried were thoroughly covered.
Since we know the contractor mostly cares about increasing visibility in the search engine with potential customers in their service area, we are able to analyze the growth of organic web traffic to their website from Internet connections in the specific towns they cover.
Below we see that local organic traffic to their website is up 91% comparing May 2016 to May 2015. If we were to look at the entire year so far (January – May), local organic traffic is up 95% year-over-year.

Does SEO Work for Businesses in Columbus?
Go to Google and search a few keywords relevant to your business. Do you see your site listed multiple times on the first page of search results? If not, you’re losing leads and sales to your competition—guaranteed.
No matter what type of business you own, SEO must be part of your online marketing strategy. It’s not uncommon for a well-optimized, high-ranking website in the home services industry (flooring, plumbing, HVAC, remodeling, roofing, etc.) in Columbus to get 100+ leads per month from organic search!
Looking for an award-winning SEO company? You’ve come to the right place. In 2011, Contracting Business magazine named Blue Corona their Business Service of the Year. In 2012, Blue Corona won multiple awards culminating with being ranked #174 on the 2012 Inc. 500 list (#1 for Montgomery County Maryland). In 2013, 2014, and 2015, we made the Inc. 5,000 again!
How We Help Columbus Businesses Grow with SEO
How many leads are you currently getting each month from organic search? Most business owners don’t even know because they’re not accurately tracking it! You can’t maximize what you don’t measure.
If we had to distill our entire SEO philosophy into a single statement, it would be this:
To rank well organically in Columbus, you must establish and promote your company as THE authority for what you do, in the markets you do it.
Ranking well on Google, Bing, and Yahoo requires three things. First, your website must be coded in a way that makes it easy for the search engines’ software to find, crawl, and categorize your website. Second, you must create web page after web page of unique, relevant, and remarkable content for every service you offer your customers. Third, you must promote your site to other relevant and authoritative websites and get them to link to, reference, and cite you as an authority.
Our SEO Process for Successful Growth of Columbus Businesses
Our process for SEO is similar to our approach to marketing in general: TRACK > TEST > TWEAK > REPEAT.
Simply put, you can’t maximize what you fail to measure and track. Better data equals better results. Our prospects almost always fall into one of two categories: those that know their numbers and those that don’t. In order to intelligently invest in SEO and grow your Columbus business, you must know your numbers. You need to know things like the number of website visits you receive today from non-branded organic search, your website’s true visit-to-lead conversion rate, and the percentage of leads you convert into sales. Very few businesses and marketing executives know these numbers, but they should. Putting in place the right tracking tools and helping you identify and understand your key metrics is a critical part of our SEO process.
For prospects that already know their numbers, we start the SEO process with a full website audit and recommendations report. Our team will review your key metrics, perform keyword research, analyze your competitors, your backlink profile, and key pages of your website, and create a detailed implementation plan. Where the engagement goes from there depends on your resources. Most of our engagements involve us creating and SEO strategy, implementing the details of the plan, and reporting the results. However, for clients with in-house teams in place, we can consult with you and use our proprietary SEO tools to help you achieve better results.
