Growing organic traffic by targeting non-branded search terms
The Rum Kitchen was ranking for very few non-branded keywords, and branded keywords e.g. “The Rum Kitchen” were bringing in 95% of organic traffic. As well as this the website was slow, and performed poorly from a UX & conversion rate perspective.

Conversion Rate Optimisation
One of the main focuses for The Rum Kitchen was achieving higher keyword rankings for non-branded keywords e.g. ‘Caribbean restaurants in Soho’, this opens up the brand to audiences who aren’t familiar with The Rum Kitchen brand.
Prior to any SEO work, we carried out a comprehensive site audit looking at all aspects of the website from an on-page, off-page and technical SEO perspective. This highlighted the main website issues, and lays a clear roadmap for the work to come over the first few months of the project.
