Struggling with Search Visibility in a Competitive Market

In early 2022, Ubisec identified a critical need to enhance their online presence, particularly in Orange County. They were grappling with lower-than-desired rankings on Google, often appearing beyond the first page for key services. This limited visibility was a significant hurdle in a market dense with IT service providers.     


Targeted Link Building and Optimized Local SEO

In response to Ubisec’s challenge, our SEO experts developed a focused link building campaign targeting the Orange County area. This strategy began with an in-depth keyword research and competitor analysis to identify the most impactful local keywords.

The team then optimized Ubisec’s Orange County page to target the selected keyword, “IT consulting Orange County.” This process involved not only refining the page content but also ensuring strategic placement of the keyword in key SEO locations within the page.

Additionally, the title tag, H1, and meta description were meticulously optimized. After launching the new page, it was submitted to Google Search Console for indexing, a crucial step in making the page visible in search results. The campaign was further expanded to include additional location pages for Anaheim, Irvine, and Santa Ana, each targeting specific local keywords.

The strategic efforts yielded significant results over the course of a year. Ubisec’s Orange County page achieved an all-time high ranking of position 3 on Google for the targeted keyword. This achievement was paralleled by substantial improvements in rankings for additional location pages, with the Santa Ana page also reaching the third position.
