Sustainable SEO Measures for the Furniture Manufacturer Kettnaker
We improve the visibility of the premium manufacturer in the search engines through OnPage optimisation.

The challenge:

The furniture manufacturer Kettnaker, a premium producer of exclusive furniture systems, is linked to a strong sales network of dealers that has grown over generations. The company’s website is primarily accessed by users who already know the Kettnaker brand and actively search for it on Google. How can the organic traffic on the company’s website be increased? What SEO measures are necessary to rank the furniture manufacturer’s website stably in the top positions of the Google ranking — even without an online shop? Our challenge was to develop a SEO strategy and to produce sustainably effective SEO content to increase Kettnaker’s visibility in organic search.

“hicklvesting is our first address for the communication mix in our industry: PR, SEO, SEA and Social Media! They continuously convince us with their professionalism, experience, a good feeling for adequate wording and the ability to reach the right target groups.”
Wolfgang Kettnaker, Managing Director, Möbelmanufaktur Kettnaker

 Our strategy:

Starting point of our comprehensive OnPage optimisation was the in-depth SEO analysis, from which we were able to derive both the technical, structural and content optimisation needs of the Kettnaker website. Great potential was uncovered in the restructuring of the website content. This did not present the Kettnaker brand and the company’s service-orientation sufficiently. In order to increase visibility on Google & Co. — besides strengthening Social Media activities and SEA campaigns — the creation of keyword-optimised website texts for the company presentation, for news articles, the new career page and especially for the product presentation are a decisive SEO factor.

 The implementation:

First, we developed a detailed roadmap that showed the optimisation potential for the programmer and the editorial work from a SEO point of view. As part of the technical improvements in favour of a strong SEO base, we improved the internal linking, discovered faulty redirects and broken backlinks and shortened the loading times of images for better pagespeed. We paid great attention to the industry-oriented keyword research, which was the starting point for all content-related text work. Which are the right keywords for Kettnaker on Google? Which keywords list the furniture manufacturer in the appropriate search environment?

With our newly designed page structure and menu navigation, we strengthened so-called thin content pages with relevant texts so that they can be better indexed by the crawlers and at the same time are perceived by users as purchase-relevant information.

With the new keyword sets, we also revised SEO-critical meta texts and alt texts of the images. Keyword-optimised blog posts on current trends in the Furniture and Design industry continue to be one of the key elements of the success of a comprehensive SEO content strategy.

The results:

With our SEO concept for the furniture manufacturer Kettnaker, we were able to set the course for long-term search engine optimisation on the company website. Technical levers were defined, the site architecture was revised and extensive SEO content was produced and incorporated. In the corresponding period, the SEO visibility index of the site was significantly increased.

The revision of the product texts based on the new keyword set led to very good, constant conversion rates for the product views. Kettnaker’s homepage, which is important for new customer entry, now ranks on page 1 of Google after our optimisation with the generic main keyword.

It turned out that SEO texts are particularly successful when they serve the needs of the human reader and the search engine at the same time. The technical and content-related SEO measures as well as the targeted improvement of the user guidance contributed decisively to increasing the organic reach of the website. As a result, website users now receive purchase-relevant information much faster. Kettnaker positions itself visibly as an industry expert with up-to-date blog articles in the environment of its products.
