SEO Strategies and Best Practices for Travel Brands
  9. 9. SEO AND CONTENT MARKETING TA-C503
  10. 10. SEO as Part of a Larger Marketing Context SEO is less about optimizing your content for search engines, and more about optimizing for the human searchers, so that your content is found by the right audience: travelers seeking the types of experiences you offer. To achieve this, using keywords and buying a few pay-per-click ads aren’t enough. You need your SEO strategies to be part of a larger marketing context - including blogs, emails, social media, and other platforms and tactics you can use to raise awareness and encourage more customer engagement.
  11. 11. Quality of Your Content Matters for SEO To improve your search performance, your website content needs to be relevant and important. SEO, however, is not a solution for building relevance and importance. It’s your job to make your content relevant and your website popular. And that’s why SEO is not just about technical approaches to building a search-engine friendly website, but also about effective marketing through quality content - and quality content created, designed, and promoted in the right way.
  12. 12. “ “ The main purpose of your marketing efforts is to engage, inspire and connect with your audience. Don’t build website content optimized just for SEO; that may help you move up on search ranking, but won’t help your business in any meaningful way.
