SEO case study: How We Helped a Language School Dominate Google Search Results in Just 5 Months


When approached by a reputable French language school in need of increased visibility and exposure, our agency recognized the untapped potential in leveraging digital marketing strategies to expand their reach. Despite their strong reputation and significant student base built largely through word-of-mouth, the language school desired a more robust online presence to attract a wider audience and reinforce their authority in the language education domain.

Client Background

Our client, a prominent language school with a well-established offline presence, aimed to venture into the digital landscape to extend their influence and accommodate a broader student demographic. Although they had not previously focused on online visibility, our collaboration with the language school highlighted the significance of an enhanced Google My Business profile, improved local search rankings, and a comprehensive digital marketing strategy to align with their business expansion goals.

Strategy Implementation

Recognizing the importance of reviews and testimonials in bolstering the language school’s credibility, we initiated targeted campaigns to activate past students, encouraging them to provide feedback and reviews. Additionally, we meticulously optimized the language school’s Google My Business profile and website with relevant keywords, ensuring they appeared prominently in local searches. Our emphasis on local citations and the consistent implementation of the business’s Name, Address, and Phone Number (NAP) across all platforms solidified their local presence and significantly improved their online visibility.

  2. Google My Business Optimization: Conducted a comprehensive optimization of the language school’s Google My Business profile, ensuring that all relevant information, including business hours, address, contact details, and services offered, were accurately and attractively represented.

  3. Website and Keyword Optimization: Implemented a meticulous keyword optimization strategy for the language school’s website, focusing on incorporating relevant keywords and phrases that resonated with their target audience. This approach was designed to improve their organic search rankings, making it easier for potential students to find their services online and boosting their overall online visibility.
