'Performance is Nothing Short of Spectacular' - Glowing Testimonials from SEO Clients

Categories: Our News

Despite the current travel restrictions, our SEO clients’ sites are generally performing well in terms of visitor traffic, boosted by some additional keyword research, SEO optimisations, and content expansions to adapt to the current environment and help to maintain momentum and as a result, many have stayed in positive territory, even during lockdown.  

Obviously, events related activity has decreased significantly but we’re still seeing plenty of evidence of site visitors looking for socially distanced activities, particularly outdoors, that they can do within their destination’s current guidelines, or forward planning for the future once the restrictions are lifted.  People looking for inspiration for breaks later in the year and searches for seasonal related keywords for Spring and Summer are also evident as planning starts for better times ahead.  

It will be no surprise that rural areas are generally performing better than cities.  However, cities can still benefit by creating ideas for day trips to neighbouring rural areas (once the restrictions are reduced/lifted).  Virtual tours for attractions such as art galleries, heritage sites, gardens and stately homes are also proving popular as people look for a distraction and plan for the future.

It’s important to mention that our SEO clients don't just benefit from the SEO implementation work itself but also from the ongoing strategy planning when we discuss ideas with our clients during regular conference calls and provide access to constantly evolving industry knowledge and expertise from the Simpleview SEO team.  

Here’s what a few of our clients in the UK have to say about their experience of working with us over the last few months…
Anthony Climpson, Chief Executive at Go New Forest:

"Since signing up to Simpleview’s SEO service over 3 years ago, we’ve been very happy with the team’s friendly and insightful support. Prior to the Covid-19 crisis product rankings and overall traffic to our destination website has improved steadily. However since then the targeting of featured snippets, expansion of themes and site map, plus the detailed interrogation of our content and consumer insights by the SEO team has paid extraordinary dividends. 

Even during both lockdowns we’ve enjoyed strong growth across all fields, but in between time performance has been nothing short of spectacular."

Jill Harlow - Data & Web Manager at Visit Isle of Wight:

"Simpleview has provided much needed SEO advice on how to ensure our website continues to excel on search engines. The monthly calls provide a chance to review the changes Simpleview has implemented and the actions we need to take to improve our website rankings and traffic. The monthly report is communicated in a clear and concise format providing valuable analytical information. 

This SEO service is friendly and effective for our organisation. It allows us to concentrate on ensuring the website is showcasing our latest campaigns and messages whilst Simpleview manages the optimisation of the website."

Laura Stanley-Adams - Digital Marketing Tourism Officer at Visit Hampshire:

"The Visit Hampshire website has now been live for almost 5 years and from the word go has had the support of Simpleviews’ SEO package. The team is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to all things SEO and Google Analytics and are quick to respond when there is an issue with the site. They keep us informed about the work they are carrying out and will spend time talking through any SEO queries/questions we may have.

The monthly reports come straight to our inboxes and give a detailed snapshot of how the Visit Hampshire site is performing and the work the Simpleview SEO team has been doing that month. 

On our monthly catch-up calls Simpleview talk us through the report for that month, giving further insight and helping us to establish the work we need to do to improve our site’s ranking and traffic.

We have seen positive results from Simpleview’s SEO services, particularly in this tricky year!"

Nicola Goode - Marketing & Communications Manager at BCP (Bournemouth Christchurch & Poole) Council:

"On behalf of the BCP Tourism Marketing and PR team, I would like to thank you for your help and unwavering support throughout 2020 – it’s certainly been a rollercoaster. The tourism team has achieved so much and this would not have been possible without you.  Going into 2021 and the new challenges ahead, I know we are match-fit and ready to take anything on."

Tina Veater -  Visit Devon (in association with Ignyte Ltd):  

"Working with the SEO team at Simpleview has enabled a number of Ignyte clients to benefit from their huge experience on changes that we can make to enable the websites to perform better in searches and also drive improved content and filters.

The SEO maintenance proposal is superb value for money and gives the confidence that someone is always keeping a close eye on errors, updates and speed."

The traffic volumes that our SEO team is witnessing do show evidence of a huge pent-up demand in travel and tourism and our DMOs need to be prepared to welcome back visitors, possibly more domestic in the initial phases but extending to international once the vaccination program starts to make serious inroads.  One thing is for sure, the industry will recover and rebound so it’s more important than ever to keep front of mind and adopt agile marketing strategies which are capable of keeping visitors engaged and adapting to both changes in behaviour and the environment.
