SEO & CONTENT MARKETING
Smarter Paths is a mortgage and refinance lead broker servicing some of the largest mortgage lenders in the nation. Smarter Paths generates live mortgage and refinance leads which are in turn sold off to the highest bidding wholesale lenders. Providing quality and high converting leads is a key factor in Smarter Paths overall success.
Smarter Path’s old website only contained 6 total pages. With so little content, it was no surprise Smarter Paths was seeing absolutely ZERO organic traffic. This posed an issue over time as all website traffic was derived from paid ads. Smarter Paths saw the value in organic traffic but simply could not figure out why they were not ranking on search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing.
Before building a new website, Analytix Media conducted a full SEO audit and found a lot of room for improvement. In the case with Smarter Paths, it was crucial to include resources and content for the user to either read or land on through search engine results with specified key words. Unfortunately, the housing finance industry is a very competitive market when it comes to outranking with key words alone. Analytix Media performed and continues to perform On page and Off page SEO, prioritizing backlinking with reputable and recognizable industry partners. Smarter Paths has over 500 original resource articles to assist search engines to easily crawl and rank content pages based on search inquiries.
Progress is Key!
With the use of keywords, Analytix Media was able to establish domain authority and improve the site’s overall SEO ranking. In a short timeline of just 7 months, Smarter Paths organic traffic improved by over 300%, and continues to do so.
