Case Studies



A little SEO education goes a long way

The main strategy for LearnMate was to educate the client as much as possible in things like the silo structure and functionality of his website, as well as carry out our onsite fixes and optimisations. This allowed us to ensure that his website was highly optimised from a technical SEO perspective. We focused our attention on backlink acquisition to help assist with the onsite work that has been done. As a result, Dmitri now consistently ranks #1 for many tutor related keywords and phrases.

Challenges & Objectives

Straight to the top of the class in SEO!

Our main objectives for LearnMate were to increase organic traffic consistently by 30% in 2019 (compared to year on year), roll out ‘online tutoring’ offering and rank on the first page of SERP. After a nightmare encounter with a bad review schema, our prayers were answered by implementing a Google Reviews Widget. This pushed LearnMate ahead of its competitors and gave the client confidence to launch an online tutoring offering. It was a success and LearnMate continues to dominate the SERP for related keywords in this area.


I have been working closely with StudioHawk for the past few months, and the results have been amazing! Without their guidance and support, I would’ve undoubtedly been unable to obtain first page rankings for the keywords ‘tutor’, ‘tutors’ and ‘tutoring’ – all of which are ultra-competitive keywords. Thanks, guys!

Our organisation has worked with StudioHawk for the past six months. We have seen our online presence and conversions go from strength-to-strength as a direct result of their guidance, knowledge, and industry relationships. They’re organised, professional, and deliver to a very high standard and I have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
