List Of SEO For Financial Planning

Let's start from the beginning: niche analysis

Niche and competitors study allows you to determine the starting point of the SEO campaign, the scale of the proposed activities and the main stages of the site promotion strategy.

We determined that the financial services niche is highly competitive, as evidenced by the high KD for the main keywords:

Our competitors are large authoritative financial giants with many years of experience and a wide range of services, as well as a large layer of information resources. Therefore, the content strategy includes the creation of the keyword map with medium- and low-frequency queries with a link to the location.Ā 

The next step: structure elaboration

Development of the site structure, creating a logical hierarchy allows you to minimize technical errors, systematize all information about the activities of the company, create a visual framework of the site and improve navigation. On the picture below you can compare the current and old structure of the site on this project:Ā

Our goal was to create 15 new pages on the site and fill them with thematic content.Ā  In addition to the texts, we placed heavy content elements: photos, videos, interactive elements, quotes, tables. All these elements allowed us to visualize the information, increase user interest and therefore improve behavioral factors.Ā 

You can see it in the picture below:

Results of detailed analysis of the audience overview since 1st September 2020.

  • Total number of pages viewed increased by 58.99% over the last 2 years compared to the previous similar period;
  • Bounce rate decrease by 20%;
  • Depth of page views on the site increased by 6.9%;
  • Total website traffic increased by 25.70% over the last 2 years of our SEO campaign.

To increase the evaluation of E-A-T ranking factors, we performed the following work:

  • We posted maximum information about the composition of the team, positions held, photos, information about the professional level of employees, links to social networks, options in connection with a particular specialist, and a brief biography.Ā 
  • We created a blog, with the company's financial specialists acting as authors of articles. That made it possible to share expert knowledge in the field of finance in the most clear way.
  • We created a FAQ block which allows potential clients to get quick answers for the most popular questions about finance.

A site is considered authoritative if it is cited, other pages refer to it, or recommend it as a reliable source of information. An indicator of the siteā€™s authority is the link profile and its quality:

  • presence in thematic directories;
  • presence of external links from verified sites;
  • mention of the resource on sites with good authority.

Team of linkbuilders developed a method for selecting the best resources to build a link profile.

The number of referring domains on the project increased by 161%, the number of referring pages increased by 69% from the beginning of the SEO campaign.

The result of the work is shown on the picture below:
