SEO and Online Visibility

Mira Spa and Salon, being a new business in Reston, Va., had limited online visibility and Google SERP (search engine result pages), which is already dominated by the established Spas and Med Spa in the area. WebSubstance did a deep-down keywords and search intent analysis to develop a clear strategy for the most relevant keyword targeting that directly relates with the search intent of the Reston residents looking for quality Spa and Med Spa services. The entire website was optimized with on-page SEO metadata, content edits, internal linking, and Schema for local organic ranking, along with GMB and Search Console revision and configurations.

Results

  • Performance Metrics: Within 45 days of SEO implementation, the Mira Spa website acquired top SERP ranking for the 75% of the target keywords related to Spa services despite stiff organic competition. 60% of the website traffic in Q3 and Q4 came via organic search, generating Spa appointments and brand engagement that surpassed the original target.

Conclusion

In summary, the collaboration between WebSubstance and Mira Spa and Salon exemplifies how tailored digital strategies can significantly uplift a new business in a competitive market. Through a meticulously designed website, effective integration with Meevo software, engaging content creation, and a robust SEO strategy, we have enhanced Mira Spa and Salon’s digital presence and substantially improved their customer engagement and service accessibility.

The results speak for themselves: a marked increase in SERP rankings, significant growth in organic traffic, and a surge in spa appointments, all within a short span. This case study demonstrates our commitment to delivering results that meet and exceed client expectations.

Portrait of Mary Taylor

I’ve been working with Jenny since 2008. She has great ideas, great work ethic, fair pricing, and most of all she is always open to my inputs on all the work she does for me. She goes above and beyond to make sure the work she puts out is excellent and very innovative. Both her and Michael are very approachable and never take offense if I ask for changes on the design. I would highly recommend this team and I’m always available to be a reference for them.
