Gazeboshop is a retailer of gazebos and similar items, selling to both trade and consumers online and off. Their products can be used in gardens or at a wide range of events, including conferences, exhibitions and sporting occasions. While their main product line is seasonal by nature, with a clear outdoor focus, their wider range attracts interest throughout the year.
Gazeboshop has been working with Impression for over 6 years. 2019 was an important year as Impression has achieved at least 50% YoY growth in ecommerce revenue and transactions. However, the targets and aims were now set for Impression to improve sales of printed gazebos by at least 50% year on year. In order to achieve this, Impression set some internal objectives to improve the organic traffic to specific sector pages, as well as improving the number of printed gazebo submissions across the site as a whole.
Within these goals, Gazeboshop was keen for Impression to focus on the B2B side of their audience: small business who run market stalls or need custom printed gazebos for events, as well as corporate customers who have an interest in larger, bespoke projects and printed packages.
These focused goals required us to implement a holistic SEO strategy that would improve the site in multiple ways.
Optimising for high intent B2B keywords
This aspect of our strategy for Gazeboshop allowed us to focus on their B2B audience at the same time as driving conversions of their printed gazebos – one of our key objectives. Our focus was on high intent keywords that were specific to that market, including:
We identified these focus keywords by drawing on a number of research techniques. Not only did we do fresh keyword research through our various tools, we also analysed competitors’ rankings in depth. In addition, we used Google Analytics and Gazeboshop’s CRM data to identify the lucrative terms that had previously engaged a B2B audience.
With the keywords identified, we implemented an on-page optimisation strategy to improve rankings. The four pages that were competing for ‘printed boxes’ were trimmed down to one and we created new pages to target new keywords. We employed latent semantic indexing (LSI) to identify related words and phrases that we should be including and liaised with the client to ensure that we were incorporating relevant trade terminology.
Improving the user experience through keyword research and user intent analysis
A large part of understanding exactly what should be included on a lead gen page, on a site that gets a lot of revenue from ecommerce too, was to understand what the customer really wants. We reviewed search query reports to understand the types of questions and queries that users were searching with, reviewing Search Console to understand if there were any competing pages on the site that would be cannibalising, and also got information from the sales team to understand typical questions that were being asked by customers.
It came to light that Gazeboshop was not visually showing its range of gazebos and high-quality prints as well as the competitors and other branding sites. Therefore, we optimised the gallery pages on the site so that they showcased more images of the printed gazebos, with a gallery page for each key sector, and then ensured that they were optimised for target keywords.
Internal linking was key to ensure that these sector pages were seen as a relevant and positive addition to the user journey. We ensured that the pages were internally linked on appropriate category pages where a certain gazebo is most suitable to a specific sector, and made sure that contextual linking with optimised anchor text was implemented across the site.

An outstanding team of professionals who constantly strive to bring innovative and fresh ideas to the table.
We've worked with Impression for over 4 years now and we’re incredibly happy with their work and blown away by the results they have achieved for our business. The team deliver on their tasks in a timely manner and to a high standard. They are always ready to help. Their support and account management are second-to-none; and they not only manage our SEO and PPC services but are also responsible for any web development work now too.
Due to the seasonal nature of our products, our business has very clear peak times throughout the year. However, despite this, December (historically one of our quietest months) was a great month for us with PPC campaigns delivering a YoY increase in conversions (+19%) and revenue (+102%), as well as delivering significantly more quality traffic (+46%) to the Gazeboshop website.
We couldn’t be more pleased. And after a positive trial period with the shopping network, RedBrain we now look forward to hopefully generating further sales with our shopping campaigns via this channel. Impression are both committed and dedicated to meeting its client’s objectives and goals. As a result we have seen a considerable increase in organic impressions, clicks and CTR since we began working with them, showing the positive impact of their digital marketing work on our site. Long may it continue.
We would recommend their services without hesitation.
