ClickSlice Helped Project Solar Generate More Targeted Traffic

ClickSlice generated more leads and improved the online visibility of the website for Project Solar UK.

The Background

At ClickSlice, they love to partner with mission-led brands and use their skills for positive global change. When they were approached by the UK’s number one solar panel company, Project Solar UK, ClickSlice knew they could help them make a difference to their business and a difference to the UK’s carbon footprint.

ClickSlice focused on improving the online visibility of the website and generating more leads through multiple regional pages.


The solar industry is one of the most competitive industries in the UK, and due to the ever-evolving regulations around solar panels, you have to be on your top game to rank for relevant keywords.

The Keywords

ClickSlice picked a variety of keywords, ranging from general questions about the industry to top-level buyer intent keywords. Here are a few examples from the campaign:

  • “carbon footprint facts”
  • “solar panels Birmingham”
  • “solar panels Peterborough”
  • “solar panels Newcastle”
  • “solar companies UK”

They targeted the typical “solar panel + area” keywords: these are the bread-and-butter keywords that will bring in the sales.

ClickSlice also chose to go with “carbon footprint facts” as they saw this as a great way to win the ‘featured snippet’ box on Google. The featured snippet takes up a lot of on-screen real estate, so instead of letting one of their competitors take it, they wanted it.

Featured snippets work best when they provide specific, in-depth content to answer searchers’ questions. In this case, people looking to learn about their carbon footprint are often open to solar power solutions, and Project Solar is well-placed to answer their queries.

Once the keywords were confirmed, ClickSlice got to work.

The Campaign

ClickSlice started the whole campaign off by getting on-page SEO up to scratch – consistent, relevant URLs, title tags, and links. They built supporting pieces of content and linked them back to the target pages, which made a tremendous difference to the topical relevance of each page.

Once ClickSlice had tackled the on-page SEO, they formulated an effective content marketing strategy, produced top-quality content, and uploaded it to the website.

With quality content in place, they could reach out to authority websites throughout the solar industry and get some juicy backlinks to their content. With a list of relevant links, their domain authority was shooting up.

Of course, there are a few more elements to the ClickSlice secret sauce – but a great chef never reveals all of their ingredients!

The Results

Their team managed to secure the featured snippet box and rank in the number one position for the industry-specific keyword “carbon footprint facts”:


The keyword “solar companies the UK” is an extremely competitive keyword. It’s targeted by all national solar companies across the UK, so the competition is tough. This keyword also sports a difficulty of 58 – near the top end of the ‘hard’ category:


Despite the odds, they got Project Solar UK ranking in the top spot on the very first page of Google.


ClickSlice also managed to rank Project Solar UK in the top three positions across ALL their location-specific keywords, generating a massive influx of inbound enquiries!
