& Site Migration:

SEO Goal & Strategy

  • The SEO strategy for Pest Detective was kicked off by the need for a brand-new website theme, developed by Soulpepper and optimized for speed, user experience/mobile and other important SEO elements.
  • The team then carefully migrated the content from Pest Detective’s old website in what is called “SEO migration”, which is designed to preserve organic ranking levels achieved over years of previous SEO development on the old site. SEO Migration ensures all the SEO development built over the past years don’t go to waste and your company’s SEO development doesn’t have to start anew.
  • Soulpepper successfully completed the migration without dips in keyword ranking, and in many cases, even improved the ranking, despite being a brand new website. Thus, setting the tone for a new era of SEO progress that had not been possible with the older, outdated site.
