Growth Through SEO


Online consumer electronics retailer


The client was experiencing a 40% decline in visits and revenue. They had relied on an in-house team for the basics of SEO and decided to bring Lever in for advanced techniques:

  • Search behavior research to influence product and category naming
  • New page template builds to draw in new sources of organic traffic
  • Canonization of mobile and desktop sites
  • Site experience improvements that impact user experience and search rankings


The tactics Lever employed fall under a focus on the four main pillars of SEO:

  1. Technical
  2. Content
  3. Experience
  4. Authority


Over the past 1.5 years, Lever has addressed the following optimizations:


  • Taking unreadable page elements to a search bot and making them readable, such as on the home page
  • “Joining” desktop and mobile versions of pages in order to improve indexation


  • Re-focus of content optimizations to match searcher behavior (“mini fridge” vs. “mini refrigerator”)
  • Building a new page infrastructure to handle Brand+Category searches (“LG LED TV”)


  • Steady work on reducing home page load time
  • New top level navigation and site taxonomy


  • Natural and compliant link acquisition efforts through PR and content development


  • Traffic continuing steady growth pattern throughout 2014
  • YTD traffic up 41% through August 2014
  • YTD revenue up 43% through August 2014
  • The work Lever did in 2013 laid a foundation for the success seen in 2014
