Success Stories

Since my first SEO success story in 2011 I have been improving and expanding the SEO search engine optimization services that CDL500 offers. After really digging in to FTKny.com and showing results that started turning into money for my client, I knew I had understanding of how Google worked.

The challenge helps us push the boundaries of what the internet is capable of. I enjoying being someone that helps improve and expand the internet. It is my clients that allow me to do this regularly.

I yearn for new projects and keywords. It is how I get better. All of my clients benefit when my skills improve.

SEO Success Story: FTKny.com

Rank: #1 on Page 1

We first built the website in the last quarter of 2012. The initial intention was to just make FTKny.com a website unifying local franchises. Generating hundreds of leads wasn’t a conscious initiative until the following year. Towards the end of 2013, I began applying search engine optimization techniques to the content of the web pages. We did a full audit from top to bottom. Every title, every link, every image, every page.

First we optimized for gifted and talented nyc related keywords. We saw some traction. Next, we improved the content of certain pages to rank for enrichment nyc. Slowly but surely, the leads began coming in. Since this client provides seasonal products, there is never a dull moment. We are always tweaking for the current season or planning ahead for the next season — even the next year.

After our initial audit and optimization of the website, we began adding pages based on target keywords. A few each quarter. We are now showing up for many more keywords than we initially planned.

Also, years later, we realize there wasn’t a ton of search traffic for enrichment, but tons for tutoring. We pivoted the goal of some of the pages to match with users searching for tutoring nyc or brooklyn. Now, about a year into this targeting pivot, we are seeing record breaking amount of leads pouring in each month. Keep in mind, all of this work adds permanent value to your site and was done without paying for search rankings (PPC ads.)

The success of FTKny.com has spawned affiliate websites like ParkSlopePreschool.com and CampWilliamsburg.com – all built with SEO as a main focus.

SEO Success Story: Park Slope Preschool

Rank: #3 on Page 1

The success of Park Slope Preschool is one of commitment and patience. It began with a need to generate a very specific type of lead for a client. The client offers many programs, and our search engine optimization work was starting to show results in other aspects of their business, but one location in particular was suffering.

My client didn’t know what to do. It had not been like that the year before. He was out of ideas having burned through his traditional marketing budget and platforms. Direct mail wasn’t giving them a return and it seemed local competitors were popping up all over and taking huge market share.

In somewhat of a panic, my client asked if we could build a website dedicated to one type of lead. I said, yes of course, and that was the birth of Park Slope Preschool.

In order to create a seamless experience, we decided to create a sub-brand. This would allow the website to be fully focused on a our target keyword. We designed the website so that would look just as perfect on mobile as it would on a desktop or laptop. We chose a URL that reflected the keyword we wanted to rank for: park slope preschool. Since we were building this site from scratch with SEO in mind, we could optimize from the get go. Our competition was not optimized for such specific search queries, so we felt confident in our pursuit. The site took just under one month to build.

We landed on page 7 upon launch. The days go by… about 2 weeks in we jumped to the bottom of page three. It was at this time that we began our inbound linking building. We added the link to all of our related websites and started reaching out to local media platforms. We secured a few links as the next two month progressed. These helped push us to the middle of page two. Teetering on the brink of page one for about a month, we opened the throttle and added a moderate amount of highly targeted content to the site.
