Questions and Answers about Financial SEO

Financial Services SEO requires an understanding of the market for these services – and a keyed in process of getting the right targets in place for your company.

Unless you have a financial services SEO specialist in your organization – you need someone to guide you in this process. SEO for financial services requires in depth research on the market you are going after, and looking at competitors to see what they are ranking for, and what is driving their traffic.

From here – SEO services can be highly effective for the financial industry. Start with competitive analysis and move to keyword strategy, what terms can you go for that really have a solid amount of searches for them a month. This is where we start in our SEO process and move to getting content and links out and up to give your website pages more importance and targeting.

Creating content to help Financial services websites rank to gain Google traffic requires building something more than 'commodity content.'

Commodity content is a term in content marketing that describes content that has no competitive advantage. It's run-of-the-mill, without specialty, and is likely to leave your rankings unchanged.

Epic resources on the other hand – deep guides and answers to real questions searchers in your industry are looking for can actually get your website some clout with people – and search engine algorithms. These two elements are converging – as Google algorithms get better, they are learning to use search data (like when you click into a search result and stay for a long time) to serve more content like this to people and less content to people that they didn't seem to like (like when you click into a search result and leave immediately.)

For this reason – creating real, useful, and information rich resources is the long term solution to get more Google traffic for financial industry websites.

You can get more links to your site by going and 'guest posting' on other financial related websites that are respected in your industry.

Ideally you're even being featured on Forbes, Bloomberg, Inc. and other high value sites that make your company look important. It seems silly, but if it's good for public relations, it's likely good for SEO as well.

It's also just about the pure metrics of certain sites. If you check out the tool 'Mozbar', you can see which websites and pages within those websites have high DA and PA - Domain authority and page authority, which just means how much they are trusted by Google in a general way. Getting more links with relevant anchor text to your site will result in higher and better rankings consistently.

You can also get more links by doing press releases, purchasing them from link brokers, getting local directory listings, and many more options. We handle all of this for you, and do it in a way that appears natural and authoritative to search engines.

When I began searching for an SEO agency last year, I received a lot of generic proposals from SEO agencies who wanted our money but didn't show any dedication to learning our niche industry. Tim, on the other hand, came to the table armed with a list of keywords to go after, goals to reach, a knowledge of what our competitors were doing, and an eagerness to understand our industry. Since then, Tim has shown a deep commitment to our success and has gone above and beyond to make sure we reach the goals we set. In the last year, our company has experienced a 30.8% increase in conversions from organic search (3mos/3mos) and a 135.06% increase in page views from organic search (3mos/3mos). The conversation has shifted from "let's get more leads" to "we need to hire more employees to handle all this new business." Tim has been incredible to work with, and I'd recommend him highly to anyone looking to hire an SEO specialist.read more

“My company launched our completely revamped website and couldn't be happier with the way the site turned out, and our experience with Tim B Design. They took our old website with outdated graphics, poor sales results and transformed it into a modern, incredibly attractive and sales thriving site. In 6 short months we have seen a 300% increase in sales by online traffic, a greater return than we had ever imagined. Our product keywords are up over 350% and our website can easily be found on top of any major search engine. When we met with them to discuss the project, we were immediately impressed with how easy they were to communicate with—just real, down to earth, believable people that don't talk over your head with tech jargon. They listened and spent ample time understanding our products and message to make sure the site layout was exactly what we wanted.These days, I feel that people get to know your business through your website before they even walk through your door so it better be a good first impression. Our site brings in new clients every single day. The best part is that my website is so easy to use, I am able to edit content whenever I need to. It’s become such a great tool for my business. I am so in love with my branding, I receive compliments everyday. The Tim B Design team is amazing. They are creative, quick and so much fun to work with, I highly recommend them to any business.”Brad LorenceOwner, Banksystems Marketing Incread more

Tim B Design is exceptional to work with! He and his team have a great attitude, they've shown excitement in helping my business, and they are go getters! When I first contacted Tim on his website he responded to me almost immediately which was great. After our first face to face meeting I knew I wanted to work with him. I agreed to have them design my logo and build my website. In the process of doing that Tim thoroughly educated me on the importance of SEO which I knew very little about. There was absolutely no pressure to purchase anything while he was educating me but I decided to enter in an agreement for that too. Shortly after starting SEO they had availability to take over my social media accounts and I jumped at that opportunity. I put my full trust in them and they are doing great with all of it. Because of their work I've already seen growth in the number of sales leads generated by my website which is terrific! If you need help with any of these areas you need to contact Tim B design. Thank you Tim and Bea!read more

Tim and his team were collaborative, responsive, fast and delivered quality work on a tight timeline. The Wordpress pages they built are easy to update, mobile friendly and we plan on using the template they built for landing pages down the road. Tim also provided insightful guidance on SEO and lead generation best practices along the way.read more

Without even paying a dime, Tim looked at my google analytics account and my google console account and gave invaluable free advice. Although his services were not a good fit for my needs at this point, I would highly recommend his services for SEO and high raking on google searches. Hook Agency is the way to go!read more

HOOK made the complex topic of SEO far less intimidating. They were patient and understanding with our learning curve. They worked "with" us, educating us as to where the opportunities were. They identified what "they" could do for us and even more valuable, what "we" could and should be doing for ourselves. HOOK and their style of full transparency, had us feeling comfortable immediately and ultimately feeling like we had a trusted partner working for our best interests. We look forward to our future collaboration and success!read more

Super impressed with Tim. I had no idea how to find a web developer in my budget. Even though he was well out of my price range, he still very kindly took the time to suggest a few options and and walked me through how pro web developers operate. Class act! Thank you!!

Very impressed! Long story short, our company website that was hosted elsewhere somehow lost data and went down. When the hosting company failed to do anything about it Hook Agency didn’t hesitate to help. They went above and beyond to get us back up and running. They made us feel confident and comfortable with what they were doing and explained everything each step of the way. I would definitely recommend them!read more
