Harvey Norman

Harvey Norman is a large Australian-based, multinational retailer of furniture, bedding, computers, communication and consumer electrical products. It mainly operates as a franchise, with the main brand and all company-operated stores owned by Harvey Norman Holdings Limited.



GO Digital were tasked with enhancing Harvey Norman's online visibility. The company's position as an online retail market leader was being threatened by increased competition. Its operating model creates a challenging environment to optimise for online visibility that involves navigating the needs of multiple internal stakeholder teams.

The challenge lied in finding new avenues for organic search growth in the face of increased competitive activity in the market. The website itself has a near infinite number of pages, further complicating what in other situations would have been a straightforward task.

The GO Digital SEO team worked with the brand team, client side copywriters, the website team, and the web development team to come up with a comprehensive approach that focused on deep, ongoing technical analysis, a complete copy overhaul in some instances, and high quality backlink acquisition to deliver a concentrated effort where the end result is greater than the sum of its parts.



Our SEO Strategy was complemented by a Content Gap Analysis, a Link Building Audit, a local search review, and a Google Analytics deep dive. The GO Digital approach then aimed to provide incremental increases in each area to fight back the competition on a category level.

Comprehensive Semantic Research allowed us to clearly define our "where to play" area. Large scale Meta Tag Optimisation followed, both in great manual detail, as well as setting up efficient automated rules for generating tags for new pages.

GO Digital's Technical SEO expertise enabled the tech team to better leverage their tech stack for better SEO outcomes. Some breakthroughs were made which had a disproportionately large impact on traffic quality and the company's online footprint.
