Aiming to rival the financial industry giants, the website in question embarked on its digital journey in July 2017. Before our collaboration in October of the same year, it had attracted about 13,000 monthly visitors. Recognizing the potential for exponential growth, Swift Growth Marketing and the client devised an aggressive expansion plan, progressively increasing the budget to accommodate the ambitious targets.


Comprehensive SEO Audit

As a relatively new entrant to the online financial space, the site was unburdened by penalties but exhibited aggressive anchor text usage, constituting 7% of its profile. With a substantial budget, we strategized to diversify and strengthen the site’s link equity.

The "Easy Wins" Keyword Analysis

Our analysis unveiled 230 “Easy Wins” keywords between ranks 4-30, with search volumes ranging from 20 to 11,000 monthly searches. Recognizing their potential for quick traffic boosts, we prioritized these keywords for early gains. Their associated cost-per-click (CPC) rates, some as high as $20, underscored their value.


Competitive Gap Analysis

This critical step helped us identify over 1,000 keywords our client’s competitors were ranking for, but our client needed to be. This insight informed our content strategy, allowing us to target a wide array of new, valuable keywords across different content types:

  • Category Pages: Targeting broad, high-volume keywords related to general topics.

  • Product Review Pages: Leveraging the content gap analysis to review valuable brand and product terms.

  • Supporting Content: Creating content to bolster high-competition keywords, including niche articles and contextually relevant pieces to support broader category keywords.

The SEO Campaign

The cornerstone of our strategy was a balanced mix of high-quality link building and content creation. The campaign evolved as follows:

Initial Phase: Included diversified link outreach and content creation, focusing on building a strong foundation.

Mid-Campaign Adjustments: Increased investment in higher-quality links and additional content to drive further growth.

Advanced Phase: Shifted a significant portion of the budget towards content, continuing to support this with strategic link-building efforts.


The campaign’s success was nothing short of phenomenal. Within nine months, the site emerged as a major player in the financial niche, commanding an impressive monthly traffic value estimated at $351,000:

Traffic Growth: The aggressive strategy resulted in an exponential increase in traffic, surpassing 80,000 monthly organic visitors.

Keyword Rankings: The site’s keyword portfolio expanded dramatically to include over 25,000 ranking keywords, covering a wide spectrum of high-value financial terms.


This campaign stands as a testament to the power of strategic SEO in transforming a website’s digital presence, especially in highly competitive sectors like finance. The success was underpinned by a close collaboration between Swift Growth Marketing and the client, allowing for dynamic strategy adjustments and a deep focus on high-value targets. The comprehensive approach, combining meticulous keyword research, competitive analysis, and tailored content and link-building strategies, not only achieved remarkable traffic growth but also provided valuable business insights that extended beyond search optimization.
