The Situation

We originally began working with ProEX Physical Therapy in 2010, and helped them dominate the New Hampshire Physical Therapy market by dramatically improving their website organic rankings and traffic for all things related to physical therapy. ProEx became so dominant that they were able to grow their physical therapy practice from 5 offices to 18 offices from 2010 – 2017, at which point they were acquired by Professional Physical Therapy, one of the country’s largest PT conglomerates. ProEx was a prime target for PPT in large part because of its digital presence and valuable organic top-of-page Google rankings.

When the ProEx-PPT merger took place, we were quickly able to transition the techniques we had executed so perfectly throughout the prior 8 years, and apply them to PPT’s benefit.

Long-Term, dominant SEO Strategy for over 300 keywords in New York, Boston & more

We have created significant value for Professional Physical Therapy using advanced, white-hat SEO techniques designed to position the company as the leader in all things PT in their respective cities and towns.

Highlights

  • 9~|arrow_carrot-2right~|elegant-themes~|outlineComplete website cleanup to improve functionality and convert more traffic into actionable leads.

Before

After

  • 9~|arrow_carrot-2right~|elegant-themes~|outlineRedevelopment of all sections of the website for UI, UX, load time, and mobile responsiveness.
  • 9~|arrow_carrot-2right~|elegant-themes~|outlineRedevelopment of pages functions and establishment of ongoing processes for updating the website.
  • 9~|arrow_carrot-2right~|elegant-themes~|outlineCreated a “Clinic Locator” which made the user interface much simpler to find any of the over 180 PT clinics in the company.
  • 9~|arrow_carrot-2right~|elegant-themes~|outlineProvided dedicated hosting to prevent the site from going “down” unexpectedly, a problem that had persisted for many years prior to our partnership.

  • 9~|arrow_carrot-2right~|elegant-themes~|outlineReworked site architecture to be significantly more intuitive, installed tracking mechanisms such as Google Webmaster Tools to demonstrate completely trackable results
  • 9~|arrow_carrot-2right~|elegant-themes~|outlineImproved mobile experience, which previously suffered from a crowded user interface and slow load time, causing users to “bounce” almost immediately when visiting the site from a mobile device.
  • 9~|arrow_carrot-2right~|elegant-themes~|outlineCleaned site index from having over 60,000 pages mistakenly in Google’s database to under 500, resulting in a leaner, cleaner, faster web property. This has improved site speed from load times of over 40 seconds to under 1 second!
  • 9~|arrow_carrot-2right~|elegant-themes~|outlineImprovement in the user experience on individual “Office” pages.
  • 9~|arrow_carrot-2right~|elegant-themes~|outlineCleaned all Google My Business location pages companywide in order to unify branding, messaging & improve data quality.
  • 9~|arrow_carrot-2right~|elegant-themes~|outlineAdd a “Pain Treatment” section to the website, including 30 full content pages focusing on patients’ pain and solving their problem.
  • 9~|arrow_carrot-2right~|elegant-themes~|outlineOver 360 Google PPC Search and Retargeting Ad Campaigns to target local Physical Therapy related searches.
  • 9~|arrow_carrot-2right~|elegant-themes~|outlineCustom videography showcasing the Professional PT Covid Protocols
