The website was completed in approximately 3 months, finishing in the summer of 2019. R. Williamson & Associates had signed an SEO contract with a large national marketing agency prior to contacting us about an industrial equipment website for their company.
Hearing that they only wanted a website was unfortunate for us, but we were still very happy to work on developing their website. The site has over 50 pages of content, which was mostly written by the vice president, Mr. Scott Williamson.
Before the SEO contract with the large agency expired in June 2020, Mr. Williamson cancelled their 12 month contract a month early. He then hired us to handle their SEO, Google Ads & Google My Business.

In the first 2 months we nearly doubled their organic traffic. We did this while reducing their monthly ad spending.
Our main objective was to take as much space as possible on Google’s Search Engine Result Pages (Click here for SERPS wiki page).
Security was implemented on the site to reduce bot spamming as well, so leads were overall more qualified.
In the initial meeting with Mr. Williamson we discussed his goals. He explained which products were most important. One of which was air curtains of various types, designs, and for many different applications. It was one of the first things we focused on.

We also knew we had to improve site speed.
We optimize websites for speed while developing them. Optimizations such as image compression, implementing CDN’s, page caching, etc.
However, like a car, websites need maintanace to remain in top shape.
Mr. Williamson reached out to us for custom development about 7 months after we completed his site. He let us know he would hire us once his contract was finished. We went ahead and did some long overdue website maintanace along with the custom development work that was requested.
You can see we reduced page loading time by 50%! Google, as well as users, like fast loading websites.

Below are screenshots of the keyword results using Ahrefs, and SEMrush. They are both premium SEO tools used by professionals to track rankings, discover keywords, and other SEO tasks.
Since we developed the site, we were watching what the other agency was doing. You can see in April 2020, after 8 months of SEO, what they were doing for wesellfans.com organically.
The latest results are 3 months of SEO from WriteGoodCode.com
After 11 months with a large marketing agency you can see the results. For these results they were billing Mr. Williamson premium SEO agency prices.
When restructuring the organization of a website it will drop in rankings. Truth be told, we started in July, but didn’t see any real improvements until early September.
Suddenly, we were able to get dozens of keywords ranked very quickly, since WeSellFans.com has been online for over 10 years. Google trusted the site.
That being said, the site was simply missing parts for it to rank, such as proper structure, organization, and content. These are the things we knew were missing and implemented them off the bat.
Google My Business (GMB) is a relatively new tool that is extremely powerful if optimized correctly.
The GMB account was taken care of in house by the executive assistant at R. Williamson & Associates. They didn’t have any training with it. Nor did they understand the capabilities of Google local search results.
Matter of fact, Mr. Williamson rhetorically asked why the previous agency had not suggested & implemented the strategy once he saw the results we were getting for him.
Below are the results in the last 3 months, or quarter, since we started working on their local SEO.
To simplify: the chart shows that over 1300 local people, with a desire to purchase their products, were exposed to wesellfans.com that perhaps weren’t aware of them before.

This case study was done with a small data sample done in a period of 3 months. Wesellfans.com was a unique case because the site had been online for a long time. However, it was never truly SEO optimized.
The site still has a lot of work to be done because it is over 50 pages. We focused on the most important parts for the client first, while also going after the low hanging fruit to boost the overall visibility & ranking of the site.
For example, many of the manufacturing pages, the pages that discuss which manufacturers they represent, rank on page 1. Right below the actual manufacturer.
We are confident that if we consistently continue on this trajectory that R. Williamson & Associates will reach all the goals we set forth.
