The Perfect Financial Services Landing Page Guide for SEO

Why do financial clients need digital marketing?

Most of our financial customers have a relationship with lead providers and often rely on comparison websites such as Compare the Market, Money Super Market or Go Compare.

We often work to complement or minimise reliance on these inbound leads with SEO and PPC through owned channels. Taking control of lead volumes, budgets, CPC (cost per clicks) and ultimately CPA is on most businesses agendas as they look to grow their businesses.

Take Control of Your Leads - Owned Digital Marketing Channels


If you’re not sure what an owned channel is, it’s when a business has control of its performance, the ability to flex investment and measure results. SEO and PPC (search) also usually manage customer experience and process leads on their own website and not a third party site, giving even more ownership to the business. SEO offers more sustainability for businesses by improving domain authority, site relevance and technical performance.

All of these factors can increase the sites ability to rank in the organic search results. SEO traditionally provides the lowest cost of traffic with conversions similar to paid channels. PPC is when you bid on a set of key terms within Google and Bing using Google Ads and Bing Ads respectively. We’re really proud to be a Google Partner, so we are fully qualified in search, display and mobile advertising, meaning performance is optimised from day one.

What are the SEO challenges within financial services?

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.

What is YMYL (Your Money, Your Life)?

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.

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.
