How We Achieved #1 Rankings for Competitive Keywords in Less than 90 Days
The Structure Studios team came to us with a clear SEO challenge – they wanted to rank for a high-value keyword ‘landscape design software’ to grow trials and sales for their VizTerra software.
Their website had previously ranked for this term but has recently struggled for about a year to break into page 1 of Google’s search results.
They believed that there were technical SEO issues holding them back and that Google wasn’t seeing their landscape design software content as authoritative because of sitewide cannibalization and few targeted backlinks.
As we worked with their team to identify the root cause, we began to learn that for Structure Studios’ to appear for this keyword again, we needed to re-focus their VizTerra landing page. Technical SEO, Content and Digital PR health all needed to be improved so that the page could become an authoritative hub on the ‘landscape design software’ topic once again.
We forecasted that our efforts would reclaim their visibility for this topic, drive traffic, engagement, and ultimately trial signups to deliver a positive ROI.
Our process was to fully evaluate Structure Studios’ website and competitors for relevance and authority on the ‘landscape design software’ topic using Powered by Search’s B2B SaaS SEO Framework.
This framework left no stone unturned so that we could determine exactly why Structure Studios were not seeing the results they wanted.
The Technical SEO gaps on Structure Studios website that was contributing to crawling and indexing issues.
The Content gaps that were leading to missed opportunities for relevance and authority in terms of their ideal customer’s search intent.
The Digital PR gaps that were preventing Structure Studios from being seen by Google as an authoritative source for the topic through backlinks from influential websites in their industry.
We applied our core focuses of Consolidating Similar Pages and Enriching Content User Experience to discover a number of issues where Structure Studios own content was cannibalizing itself for this topic and diluting their authority.
We recommended a cleaner content architecture so that the website would have a definitive hub for ‘landscape design software’ on https://www.structurestudios.com/software/3d-landscape-design-software, and either recommended redirecting or canonicalizing similar pages to eliminate cannibalization.
For this landing page itself, we also knew that we needed to optimize the content so that it was in-depth, spoke to the ideal customer’s problems and challenges that would require purchasing the software, and of course met all on-page SEO best practices.
The Structure Studios team was able to rebuild the content following our recommendations so that it comprehensively covered the topic and clearly answered the intent of their ideal customer through showcasing the benefits of their software, compelling images, and enticing calls-to-action.
After about a month of focused effort addressing Technical SEO and Content gaps, we were able to rank the page on the bottom of page 1 in Google. Progress, but our work wasn’t done yet.
The third piece in our B2B SaaS SEO Framework is Digital PR. Following another of Powered By Search’s core SEO focuses, we knew that we needed to Create More Relevant Publisher Relationships to earn relevant and authoritative backlinks to accelerate the ranking process.
We identified that we needed a bit over a dozen backlinks to confidently move the page within the top 5 of Google’s search results for ‘landscape design software.’
Leveraging our relationships with websites in the landscape design, general contractor, and home improvement space we began to acquire backlinks at a steady pace over a period of 6-8 weeks.
Our result was both expected, and unexpected.
We knew that our plan would eventually position Structure Studios near the top of Google’s search results for ‘landscape design software,’ but we exceeded expectations and accomplished a #1 ranking in less than 90 days.
By applying our B2B SaaS SEO Framework effectively through Powered By Search’s Technical SEO, Content, and Digital PR core focuses we were able to optimize Structure Studios’ website for a key revenue-driving topic, and skyrocket visibility.
How We Helped Make TouchBistro the Number 1 iPad POS in 35 Countries
As a foodservice iPad Point of Sale (POS) System, TouchBistro is a part of a highly competitive market. Similar services come and go on in the blink of an eye, and they didn’t want to be seen as yet another pretender when they came to us. TouchBistro offers exquisite and powerful POS solutions, so the challenge was to get this information in front of potential customers. When we got in touch, they were struggling with their search engine visibility, didn’t rank for their desired keywords, and sought to generate more leads.
We knew that it would take a massive effort to make TouchBistro stand out in such a crowded marketplace, and our experienced team relished every aspect of it. With TB’s full backing, we developed a goal out of our joint vision: to drive more leads for TouchBistro, make them easily discoverable on Google, and boost their app performance with App Store Optimization.
From previous experience, our team knew what a challenge TouchBistro’s goals posed, so we started with what we do best; an in-depth SEO audit. This audit enabled us to learn more about TB and strategically informed all of our digital marketing recommendations.
Once our grand audit was completed, we were able begin improving TouchBistro’s online presence. We started with strategic on page optimization, moved onto landing page recommendations. and we worked tirelessly to build quality links towards the brand. The on page optimization helped organic search traffic and general visibility, whilst the new landing pages created a more localized, relevant, and positive user experience.
However we knew that SEO alone wouldn’t cut it for the POS industry. That’s why our paid search experts jumped in. We created and optimized new paid search campaigns that clearly communicated TouchBistro’s powerful features and value. Our campaigns were highly relevant and the ads received excellent quality scores from Google which in turn allowed us to make the most out of our available resources.
With the combination of our SEO efforts and highly optimized paid search campaigns, we increased TouchBistro’s year over year traffic by 1400% (that’s not an extra zero), and brought in 67% more paid search leads.
Furthermore, our social media marketing team identified some untapped Facebook potential. We developed a new campaign to focus on TouchBistro’s many benefits to restaurants that were still stuck using pen and paper. The entire theme was “new” vs “old” in order to show restaurant owners that they could improve their business. We tested the new creative and copy against the the old, and quickly found that the new campaign was resonating strongly. In fact, April 2016 became a record month for TouchBistro since investing in Facebook advertising, with 135 leads generated.
With an increase in search engine performance and lead acquisition, we continue to passionately work with TouchBistro, and every day we get closer to making them the go-to POS for the foodservice industry. In fact, they’re already the #1 iPad POS for restaurants in 35 countries.

We also evaluated their existing e-books and guides for content-customer fit, and upon realizing that they were long and hard to consume, turned them into shorter more digestible content by breaking down the e-books into smaller guides, or simply changing the name from e-books to guide/cheat sheets.
