Strategic Overview

The general outline of our strategy was to:

  1. Start slow and take advantage of “quick wins.”
  2. Focus on securing a handful of strategic links to important pages.
  3. Develop a long-term, long-tail content strategy.
  4. Level up over time, and target higher-value opportunities.

So let’s dive into the case study….

Building a New Website


Whilst ‘exact match’ domains aren’t always to be encouraged, TSPW was to become an authority in the industry and so ‘The Soundproof Windows’ as a brand identity made sense.


With increasing amounts of research and contact done via mobile, we made sure the site was on a high-speed server and a content delivery network.


As no products are sold through the website, and the website was to be more focused on lead generation, we opted for WordPress custom theme, optimised for speed.

Examining Search Results

By using our SEO tools to perform keyword research we were able to discover the search volumes for specific terms, and create a website structure that would approach these terms in grouped pages. This meant specific pages on noise pollution sources and products, as well as a long-form piece on soundproof windows in general.

Securing Links

Source: ASD

Although Google has done its best to nullify backlink strategies, there is still no better indicator of a website’s value or authority within an industry. By accruing high value backlinks from niche websites over a course of months we were able to slowly build traction in SERPs, and in a way that wouldn’t get us penalised.

This has now translated to a passive link acquisition strategy, where we push specific content and resources to relevant media outlets.

Content Creation

All of the website’s copy was written to be very keyword driven, but also information rich. We wanted to ensure that anyone who clicked on the website would discover what they wanted to know, or feel like the company was authoritative and therefore worth contacting.

Additionally, we have found a great deal of SEO success with more ‘long-form’ content that is updated over time, and so we developed an ‘Ultimate Guide to Soundproof Windows and Doors’. This was an overarching guide that would encompasses various search terms such as, ‘soundproof windows costs’, ‘installing soundproof windows’ & ‘how do soundproof windows work’.
