Private Equity SEO: Our Approach
Our approach to private equity SEO hinges on an understanding of Google’s algorithm. Over the years, Google has refined its algorithm to better connect searchers with the content that best answers the questions in those searchers’ queries, whether implicit or explicit. In other words, the best way to secure and maintain high search rankings long term is by creating the best content for each target keyword.
This has three steps: first, selecting keywords that are searched by your private equity firm’s ideal audience, whether it be by investors or business owners and organizing them into a Hub & Spoke content plan. Second, we analyze the search intent behind those keywords to determine what type of page and style of content will best connect with those searchers. Finally, we create that content with the help of industry experts that is truly industry-leading, establishing your authority to both Google and the searchers that land on your page. After 4-6 months of regularly publishing this content on your website, we secure the News Website Bonus for your site, rapidly increasing your rankings. By the end of our campaign, our goal is for your website to be your most valuable source of new leads to support the growth of your firm.
