Bedford Dog Walker

I was contacted by Iain Fraser at the end of 2017 asking about a dog walking website. He had seen my Northampton Dog Walker website and was thinking about starting his own pet services business in the Bedford area.

Since he lived close to me, Iain joined me to experience a typical day for a dog walker and to ask lots of questions. Early in 2018 the design for Bedford Dog Walker was started. It was followed by a search engine optimisation campaign which resulted in Bedford Dog Walker being the top result for the main search terms.

Summary

The main requirement for Bedford Dog Walker was to rank quickly for the main keywords so that Iain could see the business grow quickly.

The design was completed quickly and within 2 months the website was ranking well and the business growing. Iain and I remained in touch. In March 2020 the UK entered the first lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. With everyone working from home, demand for pet services dropped alarmingly. I had decided to start a pet transport business, something that also interested Iain who joined me in Pets A2B.

Iain was looking for a way to become established as a dog walker quickly. He quite rightly felt that the best way to attract new customers was with a website that would look professional and rank well in Google for the relevant search terms.

Iain gave me freedom in terms of design and for much of the content. He had seen another one of my pet related websites and wanted something similar. The whole design process happened quite quickly. I designed the logo, the website and helped with setting up a Facebook and Google My Business page.

The search engine optimisation involved building relevant backlinks to his home page and also adding him to lots of directories. These citations helped with his ranking, both in local maps but also in Google organic results. The SEO saw the website achieve a page 1 ranking for his main keywords which in turn resulted in lots of new customers. Iain secured a number of good reviews in Google which in turn only helped his ranking more.

The website ranks on page 1 of Google for a number of important keywords, including:

Dog Walkers Bedford
Dog Walkers Bedfordshire
Pet Sitting Bedford
Dog Sitting Bedford
Pet Taxi Bedford
