This case study provides you with specific insights on how our data-driven SEO and PPC strategy for a national startup business is achieving big results. This business powers a national listing website for employers to find top rated health insurance brokers, P&C, Life and more, to service their business.

Insurance is the #1 most expensive keyword for cost-per-click (CPC) on Google Ads @ $54.91 per click. This makes obtaining high organic rankings on Google a monumental challenge, especially for a new emerging brand. Because CPC’s are so expensive due to competition among large national health insurance competitors, using Google Ads can be very expensive.

  • Health Insurance
  • Disability Insurance
  • Property & Casualty Insurance
  • Life Insurance
  • Liability Insurance

Creating a solid foundation starts with an SEO audit focused on uncovering technical issues, improving relevant on-page elements, creating highly relevant and optimized content, understanding search intent and analyzing top ranking competitor websites.
