The Client

Established in 1969, Aztec Containers is Southern California’s leading rental and sales company, specializing in large high-quality 14-guage steel stationary containers, portable containers, and temporary offices.

The Challenge

Aztec Container came to SEOP seeking higher rankings for their targeted keyword phrases. They wanted to increase their authority and visibility with search engines, and become recognized as the worldwide leader in the container industry. They wanted to see an increase in qualified traffic to their site, and thereby increase the number of page impressions. This was expected to lead to a higher percentage of conversions and therefore, greater profits. The site needed to be properly themed and optimized for shipping container related keywords, and content to support said keywords was also required.

The Plan

At the inception of the campaign, Aztec Container’s key indicator keyword phrases were at an average ranking of 12th, which is outside of Google’s front page results. Today, the average position of those same keywords is 5.5, indicating a substantial success with getting key phrases into key positions.

Currently, has front page rankings in Google for over 50 keyword phrases. This represents over a half million searches a month for the targeted keyword phrases, where the website comes up in the top 10 results- the front page- of Google. Similar positioning through PPC click buys would cost The Client between $240 and $410 per daybetween $7200 and $12,300 a month.

In addition, Aztec Container enjoys front page rankings for very competitive keyword phrases for 32 keyword phrases in Yahoo! and 44 phrases in Bing.
