Bugs? Root Rot? What’s the Pest?

During our initial conversations with the gardening center, we quickly identified a major issue stemming from a site migration gone wrong. The site was riddled with broken URLs, significantly impacting their search engine rankings and overall user experience. Recognizing the urgency, our team at CadenceSEO knew that addressing these issues was paramount to setting a solid foundation for future SEO efforts.

While immediate fixes were crucial for success, the gardening center also sought an SEO agency to elevate its Google rankings and attract more visitors to both its website and physical store. Luckily, our team is fantastic at both. 

Introducing a Sustainable Solution

After conducting a thorough SEO audit, keyword research, and competitor analysis, we were ready to tackle the tedious site fixes and develop a robust SEO strategy.
