Increasing online visibility for internet security giant

We coupled strategic content with technical SEO to move nine B2B search terms to the top of Google for AVG Technologies.

AVG Technologies

AVG is known across the internet for their antivirus products. They have 172 million active users around the world and wanted to increase awareness of their suite of products for small businesses. We were asked to come up with a strategy that would lead to positive write-ups for the brand, encourage a load of clicks from small business owners using organic search, and improve their ranking against competitors for popular keywords.

Getting creative with content

We took a strategic approach to identify opportunities early on. Our planning stage involved technical consultancy, keyword research and site optimisation to make sure the website was being picked up in search results. We then created a toolkit of free resources aimed at entrepreneurs – everything from ebooks on digital security topics, to a security benchmarking tool and even a unique interactive graphic called Trading Without Borders, which shines a light on the differences between ecommerce features in various international markets. We pushed the on-site content out into the world using an effective outreach strategy to reach the people who needed to read it the most.

Giving AVG the edge they needed

The content strategy was a huge success. Nine key commercial search terms topped the Google charts with page one positions (in both the UK and the US), and AVG climbed all the way from #19 to #2 for the highly competitive search term ‘Internet security’. Paul Westwood, the Marketing Manager for AVG said this about the campaign: “We asked Further to run a content-led search marketing campaign that would demonstrate a clear return on investment. They delivered. Their high-authority articles, interactive tools and infographics delivered record organic search traffic and rankings for AVG.”

Further combines creative flair with technical excellence and strategic thinking. They’re a joy to work with. – AVG Technologies
