Sumitron - SEO Case Study
About the Client:
Sumitron is a leading distributor of high quality equipment, tools and materials for the Indian Electrical, Electronics, Automobile, Pharmaceutical and Telecom industry. The company represents and supports some of the finest world-renowned foreign companies in India for their products related to electronic manufacturing and repairs.
Sumitron, an established name since 1986, was looking to scale operations as well as establish a robust online presence. The business was unable to bank on its reputation because of negligible online presence. The main challenges:
- Increasing SERP rankings on competitive industry specific keywords;
- Stiff competition from eCommerce giants Fisnar, Nordson, etc. along with online marketplaces Indiamart and Alibaba to name a few;
- Cleaning up a toxic backlinks profile;
- Fixing the unhealthy URL structure.
Increasing the online presence along with building an online Brand reputation was going require a lot of work. We knew we would have to re-haul their website to give it a modern look and convert it into a lead generating machine for the business.
Since the challenges were many, we needed to plan our work to address each individually, but ultimately deliver the end objective. We broadly divided our efforts into 4 parts:
- Keyword Research – An in-depth research of keywords was undertaken to cater to both national and international markets.
- Content Development & Optimization - Keywords identified were used to create quality content – article, blogs, press releases, etc., and optimize the website
- Technical Onsite Optimization – after a thorough technical audit we proceeded to:
- Resolve Canonical Issues
- Undertake URL Rewriting to make them SEO Friendly
- Optimize Product Names, Meta Tags & Header Tags on Product Landing Pages
- Optimize Meta & Heading Tags on the rest of the Website as well
- Optimize keyword density on Home, Products & Services, Category & Sub-Category pages
- Footer & Header Optimization
- Schema Implementation on Logo, Address & Breadcrumbs
- Website Speed and Page Load Optimization
- Disavow Unnatural/Spammy Links Via Google Webmaster Tools
