Case Study: Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Improving SEO Performance
Longtime Kinetic partner, Jayco Family of Companies is a prominent manufacturer and distributor of motorhomes and towable recreational vehicles (RVs). With a diverse range of brands under its umbrella, including Jayco, Starcraft RV, Entegra Coach and Highland Ridge RV, the Jayco Family of Companies recognized the need to strengthen their online presence and find a way to drive more organic traffic to its websites.
Kinetic Marketing & Creative, with a dedicated digital marketing department specializing in SEO, was all over it.
The project kicked off with a discovery meeting where Kinetic gleaned valuable insights into Jayco’s digital marketing goals, target audience, existing SEO strategies and specific pain points affecting each brand’s website. With this knowledge in hand, our digital team began conducting comprehensive, monthly SEO audits for Jayco, Starcraft RV, Entegra Coach and Highland Ridge RV. These well-known and recognizable RV brands cover a wide range, from luxury motorhomes to lightweight travel trailers and the Kinetic digital team meticulously analyzed technical SEO aspects, conducted thorough keyword research, and optimized onpage content and off-page factors while utilizing keyword position tracking for reporting.
Armed with our findings each month, we compile detailed reports, provide actionable recommendations and assist in correcting technical SEO errors, recrafting product pages and optimizing copy to include all of the highest ranking search terms and keyword phrases to propel the brands towards improved rankings, increased organic traffic and an enhanced user experience and readability.
For each brand’s website, the Kinetic digital team conducts comprehensive monthly SEO audits that include:
