Understanding the importance of SEO (search engine optimisation) for your business is crucial in playing a part in the marketing mix, which helps drive ROI (return on investment) from your digital marketing investment.
Financial Services SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) is the process of improving the traffic to your business’s website from organic sources such as Google and Bing. Popular search engines such as Google look closely at the Financial Services sector when considering the factors which determine the search engine result positions (SERPs). This additional scrutiny means it’s beneficial to have an experienced specialist agency pull together an SEO strategy.
The Financial Services sector is governed by a tight set of Google search quality guidelines as they use specific algorithms designed to protect its users. This is based on the YMYL (Your Money, Your Life) & E-A-T (expertise, authority and trustworthiness), which takes additional emphasis from Google’s search guidelines.
YMYL stands for “your money or your life” and is a key mechanism to how Google’s reviews websites, specifically within the Financial sector. This additional quality check is designed to protect users from unlawful websites and businesses trying to take advantage of organic search results.
Google references YMYL in its search quality rating guidelines describing it as “pages or topics that could potentially impact a person’s future happiness, health, financial stability or safety”. This means that Financials Service businesses automatically fall into this category as investments, insurance, banking, loads, tax and retirement planning can all affect a persons wellbeing.
Expertise, Authority and trustworthiness or E-A-T guidelines, are designed to help evaluate the quality of the search results. Google has consistently reinforced the importance of demonstrating these factors for ranking websites and describe it as one of the most important criteria of a webpage’s quality.
Our team of financial services SEO experts have reviewed over 100 top-performing landing pages in Google’s organic search results to help identify the E-A-T components that Google values, download the guide for Free above.
Because of the fruitful nature of a lot of financial products, the paid media space has become increasingly competitive with auction costs increasing year on year and CPC’s (cost per click) consistently heading north.
Having SEO in the mix allows us to minimise the reliance on paid traffic and future proof your websites authority, organic traffic, content and ultimately leads for years to come. In our experience SEO also drives a more competitive CPL (cost per lead) than PPC which can help lower the overall ROI (return on investment) from the marketing mix.
It’s also worth noting that recent studies show that although PPC click-through rates have improved over the recent years, only 50% of search impressions are clicked by PPC users with the other 50% skipping to the organic search results. This means if you only utilise PPC you only capture 50% of the market searching online.
