Starting Point for the Digital Climb

Before embarking on our challenging ascent to the summit of digital visibility, it was essential to understand our client’s starting point. The client already had decent visibility in their close proximity, the 5×5 grid, but there was room for improvement. The 5×5 grid, consisting of 4 square miles centered around their business address, held decent rankings for “roof repair” coupled with the city modifier.

The larger 7×7 grid, a 36 square mile area with its center as our primary target location, presented a greater challenge. The visibility for the keyword “roof repair” paired with the city modifier was generally in the 5 and 6 range, representing an area ripe for improvement. Our mission: to secure a solid foothold in the 3-pack rankings for the 5×5 grids and initiate the slow but steady journey towards 3-pack visibility across the wider 7×7 grid.

The Climb Initiation 🧭 Charting the Course & Gearing Up

Our preparation phase involved careful strategic planning. We initiated a comprehensive Google Maps audit, scrutinizing the tactics of the client’s competitors to understand what they were doing differently. This helped us identify vital optimizations needed for our client.

We then crafted local geographical relevancy campaigns to boost the client’s relevance in their area. We moved deliberately, understanding the importance of gaining Google’s trust through a measured and systematic approach before advancing to off-page techniques or more complex methods.

We had a challenging 60-day timeline to make a significant impact. Through competitor auditing, local relevance enhancements, and the meticulous execution of on-page and off-page optimizations, we were ready to set our climb in motion.

Scaling the Heights of Local SEO

After 30 days, we began to witness promising shifts in visibility. The 5×5 grids were making noticeable progress towards achieving 3-pack visibility, while the larger 7×7 grid was also starting to show improvements. We even observed a leap from 4th and 5th positions to 1st in mutiple grid points!

Achieving Peak Visibility

By the 60-day mark, our efforts began bearing remarkable results. The 5×5 grids had exceeded our initial expectations, securing predominantly 1st and 2nd positions across the entire grid. The 7×7 grids also displayed a significant boost, with many grid points climbing to the 1st position, in addition to achieving 3-pack visibility.

We anticipate this client will eventually dominate their primary location, given the positive reception of our strategies by Google. With time, as our campaigns mature and gain trust, and as increased customer engagement further fuels visibility, we look forward to witnessing an even stronger ascent.

In the 5×5 grid, our goal is to secure all 1st rankings. For the larger 7×7 grid, we aim for complete dominance over the primary location.
