Boost Start Date: December 2007
An internet only company, Worldwide Supply has become an industry leader in new excess, used and refurbished networking equipment including routers, switches and accessories from all the major OEM brands. They have an impeccable reputation and unprecedented customer satisfaction record. With the internet being a major source of new leads, their website needs to be front and center on all the major search engines.
They have a strong reputation with those who have worked with them in the past, and a large inventory of network hardware from all the top brands. Unfortunately at the time the SEO boost began there was a ton of duplicate content (and the search engines knew it) and not many linkbacks to the site at all.
