The Problem
While this is a profitable bus charter business, the variety and breadth of high-volume keywords are somewhat slim. When Know Agency started managing the SEO, the chosen keywords were too broad and did not provide any value to the client. DotMoby also discovered that most pages on the site had thin, underdeveloped content.
Before DotMoby took over the site was ranking on the 28th position of google results(on the third page of Google Search results), 43rd position on Bing, using high competitive keyword ‘school bus hire’.
It was of significant importance for Express Bus to rank its company SchoolBusHire.com on top of Google listing on the first page using the high competitive keyword ‘School Bus Hire’.
The Solution
DotMoby’s SEO experts started by analysing competitors and discovered which keywords would be more targeted to schoolbushire’s customer base. We knew we needed to build an SEO strategy cantered on evergreen content that would generate long term exposure, position the brand as an authority in the industry, generate some quality organic traffic.

At DotMoby we always employ white hat and organic seo strategies which helps our clients to generate long term exposure and steady organic traffic.

Once we were confident of the new strategy plan, we upgraded the whole website with new content and mapped some of the keywords, we created new content pages and tracked them, based on the analytics we were able to further tweak our strategy. Finally, the worked.

That’s great! But you may ask how long did it take to reach the #1 page ?
The Result
It took us 2 months to hit the first page and 5 months to reach the #1 ranking.
