About 1001 Optical

If you’re looking for frames that suit your taste and budget, 1001 Optical are the optometrists that can satisfy your needs. For the last 25 years, 1001 Optical has served as the optical store of choice for local communities.

With locations in Sydney and Melbourne, the optometry experts offer sleek and stylish designer glasses or sunglasses from industry leaders such as Ray-Ban, Prada, Gucci and many more. Whatever your tastes and budget, this optical store has frames for everyone at every price point, ensuring complete satisfaction.


Wanting to increase their organic visibility within the eyewear and fashion vertical, 1001 Optical reached out to Online Marketing Gurus in December 2016. From this, OMG created an integrated SEO strategy that looked at strategic link building and expanding on category brand content and blog content.

  • Client faced server issues affecting overall site performance
  • Google Analytics conversion tracking was incorrectly implemented
  • Blog content was not categorised efficiently to utilise URL hierarchy
  • Large number of broken (404) pages which is not best practice SEO

Our Approach

Upon onboarding 1001 Optical, our Gurus uncovered the difference in authority compared to industry leaders like Specsavers and Vision Direct. Both referring domains and domain authority were suffering, and as such OMG opted for link-building and content creation to combat the difficulty.
