SEO Strategies

SEO strategy puzzle

Our experience in creating SEO strategies that grow organic search profit and traffic is one of our key strengths.

We have developed SEO strategies for websites across many sectors which have massively improved the business’s profitability.

One example of successes we have cultivated is the SEO growth on the financial comparison website money.co.uk, this growth helped propel the company forward and ultimately led to the sale of the company for £80+ million to ZPG (Zoopla & uSwitch).

With the site showing signs of growth at the end of 2016 and into 2017 money.co.uk featured as one of Sistrix biggest winners in SEO growth between January 2016 and January 2017.

Profit from SEO

The figures above give you an idea of the revenue generating potential of SEO gains.

Profit, after direct SEO costs, would have been somewhere in the region of 98.07% of 2018’s revenue figures.

This calculations includes rough, upweighted estimates of direct SEO and PR team staff costs, SEO tools and tracking services and some PR budget.

money.co.uk SEO strategy

As 2018 was the year of mobile-first indexing for Google, we decided to focus on improving the experience of the site for those browsing on a small screen device.

This meant, removing superfluous text boxes and above the fold blockers to the “main” content of our pages, which was very often our comparison product.

In doing so we drastically dropped bounce rate, improved time on site and also improved the number of visitors who ended up clicking out of the site.

Improving engagement metrics as we did caught the attention of Similarweb, a website that tracks user engagement across websites in different sectors. Given our design changes had such a positive impact on user engagement, we won the Similarweb award for the best financial services SEO strategy in 2018.
