COX Company Overview

Company Overview

Since its founding in 1958, Cox Heating & Air Conditioning has made a name for itself delivering courteous, highly professional service to Pinellas County, Hillsborough County, and beyond.

Offering both residential and commercial services, the company relies on digital marketing to keep new business and referrals flowing in each month.

Problem

How does an HVAC company that’s been around for more than half a century bolster its digital marketing and SEO to reach more people in a highly crowded marketplace?

This was the challenge facing Cox Heating & Air Conditioning, who needed to audit and update its website content and SEO to boost organic website traffic and, ultimately, drive new leads and business.

COX Marketing Strategy

Solutions

Site and page speed optimizations

Google and other search engines favor pages that load fast, especially on mobile. Why? Because the people using search engines to find HVAC services want fast, authoritative answers. One of our first orders of business was to improve the website load speed times for Cox Heating & Air Conditioning.

We did so by implementing website speed best practices, including image and code optimization, limitation resource-intensive HTTP requests, and reducing or eliminating redirects. We also performed a full SEO troubleshooting audit and discovered twenty-one “404” server response code errors, which we redirected to resolve the issue. In addition, we implemented keyword-rich descriptive alt text on 43 images on the website to help improve SEO.

COX Website Traffic

New SEO-rich content and backlinks

Useful, keyword-optimized is essential not only to generate organic search traffic, but to generate helpful backlinks as well. Aside from optimizing all existing web pages on the Cox Heating & Air Conditioning website, we created four new blog posts, implemented internal links in each article, and optimized associated images with alt tags. We also published four posts to an external third party and linked back to these posts to give them an added boost. Finally, we secured a valable backlink on yet another authoritative third-party site that points back to the company’s homepage.

Outcomes

Our combined efforts to improve website speed and SEO, add new high-value content, and begin building backlinks, paid off quickly. After only a few months, Cox Heating & Air Conditioning saw a 17.9% increase in organic website visits, as well as a 21% increase in new users.
