Lennox International

Objective

Despite being a nationally recognized company, Lennox’s website traffic was not at the level it should have been, Lennox wanted to increase organic search engine traffic in order to broaden their customer base.

Search engine optimization (SEO) was a new venture for Lennox when they came to Vizion, and the company lacked a presence for nearly all non-branded keywords (e.g., “furnaces”, “air conditioner”) while their competitors were ranking in the top ten on Google for such keywords.

Solution

Vizion Interactive delivered search engine optimization consultation and recommendations for each page of the Lennox.com website. Consultation included competitive analysis, keyword research, and content gap analysis.

We then performed a technical review of their site, which allowed us to make recommendations to address the following:

  • Internal linking
  • PR efforts
  • Optimized copy and code modifications
  • Meta tags
  • PPC review and analysis
  • External linking tactics

Since 2006, Vizion has continued to provide Lennox with technical and on-page SEO consultation, as well as initiatives on off-page SEO.

150%Keywords2010 – 2014

Lennox made great strides in organic traffic between January 2010 and May 2014, due in part to an increase in keyword breadth. Over that four-year period, the number of keywords ranking rose a little more than 150%, from 3,400 ranking terms to 8,690 ranking terms.

What is all this keyword presence worth? In addition to helping lift the organic visibility of the Lennox.com site, these keywords were valuable search engine terms.


585%Value2010 – 2014

If we had simply raised the traffic value by 150%, Lennox would be looking at a vaule of approximately $200,000 a month. Instead, from 2010 to 2014, the value of organic search (estimated cost of visitors coming to a site organically vs. the cost of the same number of visitors generated through ads) rose from $88,000 per month to $604,000 per month, an increase of more than 585%.

Our strategies for Lennox continue to evolve to keep pace with search engine changes, and we’re proud to have helped Lennox gain such a strong foothold in the digital space.


“Lennox Industries had never attempted SEO before, and we’re delighted with the traffic increases thus far. Vizion Interactive has helped us increase targeted traffic to our site by 46% since our SEO campaign began! We are very impressed!”
