Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Use the Power of SEO to Increase Your Enrollment

Finding the right college is a challenge for most students. For many, it’s not about size or tuition cost; they’re looking for something much more intangible—a sense of community and belonging that can be hard to find when you’re on your own. Thankfully, there are tools like Seyfmark Search Engine Optimization strategies that make this search easier by helping prospective students connect with schools in ways other than just browsing their websites.

More than two-thirds of all prospective students now use online searches as part of their decision process – making an effective presence within organic results imperative if success is what you want if you want enrollment growth. 

Our advanced methods push boundaries around how traditional marketing strategies work for colleges and universities all over the world with our efficient use of data-driven analytics which make sure you’re up on what’s happening when it happens.

As the world of higher education continues to evolve, SEO has become a key strategy in marketing. When we put our technical ability and human psychology expertise together on your school’s website, it becomes more visible for prospective students and generates more qualified applicants who are genuinely drawn to your institution’s personality.

SEO is the new frontier in digital marketing, and education institutions are taking notice.

We’ve got over 12 years experience managing online campaigns, driving traffic to websites through pay per click advertising strategies like Google Adwords and social media platforms such as Twitter.

What We Look For When We Audit Your Website

To rank high in search engines, you need to do more than just have a website and content. You also need your site’s contents to be indexed by search engine crawlers such as Googlebot or BingBot. 

To identify which elements of the site are preventing this from happening, an SEO audit is essential! These audits help schools like yours reveal what needs improvement with their websites so they can start ranking higher for all those important keywords that drive traffic into your website. 

The process of SEO is notoriously difficult, with all the different components that go into it. It’s important to take a holistic approach when approaching this task in order to create an effective strategy for your website.

When conducting an audit, it’s important to have a background in SEO. Otherwise you might miss out on crucial structural nuances that could be hurting your site like slow page load time or pagination inaccessible by search engines.

With each audit, we meticulously comb through the ranking factors to identify technical issues. To save time and maintain accuracy in our rankings, this process is broken down into four sections: on-site SEO, backlinks analysis, keywords research for content creation purposes and competitor keyword discovery.

The audit can be a long process, but it’s worth the effort. Once we’re done with an audit, our clients will have everything sorted out in order and ready to go!

Higher Education SEO Competitor Analysis

Comparing ourselves to the competition is a key part of any research process. To make sure we stay ahead, it’s important for us not only to be aware of their strengths and weaknesses but also have some sense about how they see themselves so that we can craft our messaging accordingly.

When conducting seo competitor research, we analyze three major components:

-What our competitors are doing right now to rank well for certain keywords.  

-How these actions affect their organic search visibility and what this could mean for us if they keep it up in the future.  

-The kind of content that is ranking intelligently across different websites so that we can look at what types of posts do better than others on other sites as a way to improve ours!

The insight we glean from this information lets us know which areas may need strengthening. We then benchmark our internal audit against each competitor with tangible data that shows their keyword count, content types and where you compare to your competitors.
