The Problem

Prior to Website Depot (WD), the treatment center hired a digital marketing agency to build an attractive website. And the agency did a tremendous job. But it wasn’t built with local SEO in mind. The website focused more on aesthetics, rather than being found on local search results and getting visitors to convert.

Recovery centers are amongst the most competitive topics on the internet, especially in California and Los Angeles area. Keywords related to such queries have an extremely high volume and it’s a challenge to rank on the first pages of search engines. Thus, Insight Treatment had an important difficulty to make a difference in a highly demanded market.

The Solution

The Website Depot’s team showed the company what investing in SEO could do for its treatment center. In 2015, Insight Treatment bought WD’s Local SEO, social, and Adwords services. The company wanted the local SEO for rehab centers to boost Insight Treatment so that it would show up when clients are searching for one. The company understood that the local campaign was fierce. WD team plugged in Insight Treatment’s competitors, studied what they were doing, and started optimizing the center’s website. To complement the local SEO campaign, WD’s team started promoting Insight Treatment on various social media platforms and initiated a Google Ads campaign. WD also revamped the site to drive organic traffic continuously.

WordPress was the platform of choice to develop Insight treatment brand new website It’s ease of use and SEO tools made it ideal for the site’s needs of constant blog posting and continuing promotion of the services published in the sites.

Website Depot is a Premier Google Partner company that complies with the most up to date and recommended practices in order to achieve SEO and PPC success. Insight Treatment optimization plan was customized based on the unique opportunities we identified for it. The main goal was to get qualified traffic and visitors and convert them to leads, calls, and eventually, sales.

We adapt the strategy for Insight Treatment every month, so we can dedicate our time to the highest yielding activities. By client’s request, we also included Insight Treatment in a list of 35 directories selected by them. This special service is part of Website Depot’s customized marketing strategies, and leads additional traffic to the website. For quicker results, we also implement paid advertising solutions, always with the client’s previous agreement.

To get the most accurate keywords and keyword phrases, we analyze the most popular keywords across major search engines and studied the competing websites using top-notch paid tools and our 10 years experience.


The main SEO objective for Insight Treatment was to place their website within the top positions for most of their keywords on all major search engines within 3-9 months of project initiation. Less competitive keywords provided results in 60 days or less. The most competitive keywords may take up to 8-10 months to get long term results.

Within those periods of time (and even earlier) Insight treatment website reached the first pages of search engines and keeps on getting high rankings in the high competition category of addiction rehab centers.
