  • Support for URL migration management, including domain changes, redirect planning and implementation auditing
  • Content training for the internal marketing team to help build SEO best practice into everyday activities
  • Onsite support for the developers and internal team during the launch day, including live checking of deployments against potential issues
The Results

Hobbs SEO Case Study
The Feedback

“(The training was) almost perfect – the team seem very positive about it all. We weren’t trying to cram too much in or do superficial exercises. We were able to ask very detailed and specific questions, and the exercises we did were actually relevant.”
