The Problem

Calvin Center for Excellence in Preaching reached out to us with one main goal in mind: organize the content and resources on their website in a user-friendly way that made more sense. Their site was not optimized for SEO. The website was lacking visibility, traffic, and rankings. The Center was frequently producing new content, so we knew that it was not a content issue but rather a website structure issue.

The Solution

We restructured their website with SEO in mind. The original website only ranked for 212 page one keywords; although the site has existed for over 10 years and had thousands of reputable pieces of content. By implementing new features like a smarter search function and view filtering, we helped improve the organic visibility of their site, while also improving the look and feel of the design. After the new site launch, the Center for Excellence In Preaching now has over 2,000+ page one keywords. Overall, content organization plays a big factor in search visibility.

The Results
