The Project Background
With over 35 years in business, Current Pixel is a Roswell, Georgia-based media digitization company that specializes in preserving content from obsolete media types like VHS tapes and movie film reels into digital files or DVD sets.
In 2016, Current Pixel came to Captivate to help expand the company’s digital footprint, both locally and on a national scale. In conjunction with a paid search strategy, Captivate optimized Current Pixel’s site for both SEO and CRO. These efforts not only helped facilitate better usability for lead generation, but in the process we constructed a new blog to help support an ongoing SEO content strategy to aid continued growth over the long-term.
This strategy proved to be successful, helping Current Pixel double organic traffic 3 consecutive years, while earning Captivate a 2019 AMY nomination in the process.
The Project Challenge
Current Pixel offers a wide range of media conversion services that include different formats of video, film, and photos. As such, the spectrum of relevant keywords is vast, encompassing not only various media formats, but also different keyword variations for each format. For example, one popular video format like VHS has a variety of relevant keywords, like VHS to DVD, VHS to Digital, VHS Transfer, Video Tape Transfer, Convert VHS, and VHS tape conversion, to name just a few.
The complexity of keyword data presented a unique challenge for Captivate in assembling Current Pixel’s new optimized sitemap. It was an exercise of distilling keyword data to help instruct internal pages of the site, while also pinpointing topics better suited for content marketing.
From a local SEO perspective, Current Pixel had historically struggled to rank consistently in the Google Local 3 Pack for geo-specific keywords because the company is based in the Atlanta suburb of Roswell. In addition, Current Pixel faced stiff competition for high-converting keyword targets from larger, nationally recognized brands.

Lastly, Captivate’s monthly reporting and Analytics offered actionable insights each month to continuously grow and evolve the SEO program. Such insights enabled continued optimize of Current Pixel’s conversion funnel, while helping to fill gaps in areas that needed improvement.
