With an understanding of a handful of strategic goals, we set out to improve number of visitors to the most relevant pages. As you can see from this image below, we saw 10X (ten times) or more improvements in numbers of page visitors for these pages. These results include:

  • Increased curly hair salon page traffic by 1,881.25%

Google Analytics Behavior Summary

In the Google Analytics Behavior Summary Report below, we can see some additional positive trends in website visitor data. Again, looking at a comparison of the three months we worked with client compared to the previous 3-month period, we see dramatic improvements in visitor data.

This includes:

  1. 262% increase in total website visitors.

  2. 261% increase in new website visitors.

  3. 224% increase in number of website sessions (total visits)

There was a corresponding decrease in several data points such as 10% fewer sessions per visitor, decreased number of pages/sessions, decreased average session duration and decreased bounce rate.

All of these are positive developments since it would make sense that most users are finding what they are looking for quicker and easier.

Our anecdotal evidence of increased walk-in traffic, increase in phone calls and increase in appointments overall and specifically for people with curly hair (a desirable type of customer), support the fact that the right type of visitors are finding the salon online and walking-in or calling for appointments. This is exactly what the client is telling us and the data supports this conclusion.

that the visitors got to our client’s website from unpaid listings on search engine results pages.


This again supports the idea that the SEO is working in getting more people to the website directly from organic search in search engines, particularly Google.
