Their Story

Since its opening on Christmas Day in 1936, The iconic Rink at Rockefeller Center has been a perennial winter tradition and a bucket list experience for millions of people. The world’s most famous ice skating rink has withstood the test of time and remains a quintessential part of New York City culture, and a classic experience for New Yorkers and visitors alike.

Their Goal

Increase pre-paid online revenue through The Rink’s ecommerce website

Our Solution

We gathered information about the business and did a competitive analysis, which informed decisions on how to best position The Rink in search. We made web development changes, including copywriting, backend code and e-commerce tracking enhancements. We implemented a third-party link-building strategy that supported keyword targets to help propel the website into the first position for many of our keyword targets.
