About

Golf Travel Company*

This golf travel company specializes in providing the worlds’ best golf schools and the ultimate “golf learning experience.”

This company is a respected golf lesson/vacation company located in Litchfield, Arizona focusing on providing individualized golf instruction for their clients. The company itself has grown over the years to over 10 locations, partly thanks to their expanded online presence made possible by Firestarter SEO. When they first came to us in early 2014 their goal was to start by boosting up their online presence on a national scale to drive interest in their academies.

The Challenge

Having never pursued SEO prior to Firestarter, their online visibility was limited mostly to local rankings. In fact, they had minimal first page rankings for any relevant keywords. They were invisible for terms like “2 day golf academy”, “Florida Golf School”, and “Golf Instruction Academy”. This represented thousands of missed opportunities to drive searchers to their website.

The strategy

Using our proven methods to understand the market and to find where opportunities existed we were able to put together an approach unique to their industry in order to accomplish their digital marketing goals. Ultimately this allowed us to attain numerous first page results to dominate rankings for such an industry.
01

KEYWORD TARGETING

With such a high volume of traffic that was currently being missed due to a lack of targeting, Firestarter identified target keywords for each core page of their website. This accounted for over 4,000 searches per month.

02

LINK BUILDING

A major part of the strategy was building relevant links back to the website to create trust with Google and authority in the industry. The primary focus was getting the site listed on directories in order to establish local visibility. When we first began working with them, their backlink profile was minimal. Therefore, we knew this was likely to be the biggest need for the client.

03

Optimization

Our first round of optimization was to clean up the technical errors on the site. After the site was scoring close to 100%, we began working to optimize the content on each individual core page by adding titles, descriptions, headings, and strategic keyword placement for each page. This developed trust, clarity, and authority with search engines such as Google and Bing.
