“Ranking #1 for a keyword worth $35k per month”

“My number one keyword target to rank for was ‘business credit cards.’ With uSERP’s help scaling top-tier links, we outranked NerdWallet and CreditCards.com.”

Nav.com

Nav is a business finance company, competing in one of the most coveted spaces on the internet: finance, loans, credit cards, and more.

Being a YMYL (your money your life) niche, Google places extreme weight on E-A-T (expertise, authoritativeness, and trustworthiness).

When people are spending money or making big decisions that can impact their life, Google wants the best source of information to rank first.

The problem? Giant publications like NerdWallet have been ranking #1 for years, spending millions per month on SEO.

The Solution: authority backlinks and SEO strategy

It’s a myth that you can’t compete with giant brands like NerdWallet. Your strategy needs to be fine-tuned and your backlinks must be high in authority to compete.

We worked with Nav to formulate an SEO strategy that closed competitor gaps between them and their biggest search competition.

By identifying backlink and keyword-supporting content gaps, we were able to determine a road-map that would generate results over time.

Within just a few months we were able to outrank NerdWallet and claim the #1 spot for business credit cards, driving over $140,000 per month in revenue for Nav:

Working with Growth Ramp, we took control of their SEO strategy with the goal of reaching ideal customers to drive leads and revenue.

Growth Ramp came to uSERP for help to turn SEO and organic search into a lead generation channel for their consultancy.

uSERP focused where efforts were fastest: capturing existing search demand by targeting high-intent keywords.

uSERP acquired Growth Ramp valuable backlinks and branded mentions on publications their ICP reads:

Doing so generated high-quality leads in days, rather than months of waiting for content to rank.

In addition, uSERP targeted high-intent publications to increase contextual backlinks and subsequently rankings on Growth Ramp that drove thousands of qualified buyers to the site each month:

Monday was founded in 2012, and has since raised $384m in venture capital funding.

Monday came to us with a problem: their main competitors were starting to gain traction in organic search, outranking them for key project management searches and gaining market share.

Working with Monday, our goal was to create and optimize helpful content and land crucial backlinks to drive rankings, traffic, and fill their pipeline with conversions and qualified enterprise leads.

In the first few months, we increased organic traffic dramatically through a combined approach of creating new content pieces to target untapped searches in their market, and earning backlinks that improved search rankings for existing content on their site.

Here is a bit more on how we did it.

The Solution: fully managed content, SEO, and PR.

To begin, we first looked at Monday in relation to their main competitors like Clickup, Trello, Asana, and more.

We found that existing content needed optimization and updates to remain relevant, and that new content could be created around highly valuable keyphrases in the space.

In the first few months we produced countless high-quality content pieces that produced traction quickly for important search terms:

After developing new content pieces and utilizing the unique content for outreach, we quickly built press momentum, landing earned coverage from G2, BigCommerce, Crunchbase, and hundreds more prolific sites with high domain authority and topical relevance:

This resulted in increased rankings, increased domain rating and authority, and most important of all: relevant referral and organic traffic that converted to paying customers of the software.

Overall since working together, we’ve seen a 77.84% increase in organic traffic, going from 677,000 to more than 1.2 million unique visitors per month:

We’re extremely proud of what we’ve been able to do with monday.com (as well as the success they’ve seen).

Results

  • 22% increase in organic traffic increase in first 3 months
  • 77.84% increase in organic traffic since Oct 2020, to over 1.2 million visitors per month!
  • Quotes and PR features to improve brand and topical authority
  • Earned press and backlinks from Crunchbase, BigCommerce, G2, and hundreds more
  • 750+ new content pieces produced
  • 825 first page rankings
  • 385 new top-3 ranking positions
  • 23,543 new organic keywords from content creation

Marketing at Propel Software Solutions

Propel was founded in 2015, and has since raised $28.2m in venture capital funding.

Propel came to us with a problem: their main competitors were outranking them organically.

Working with Propel, our goal was to optimize helpful content and land crucial press coverage to drive brand awareness, traffic, and direct revenue growth.

The Solution: SEO, Link building, and digital PR

To begin, we first looked at Propel in relation to their main competitors. We quickly found they were lacking the brand authority and links to compete at scale.

In addition, content needed optimization and updates to remain relevant.

We quickly built press momentum after optimizing content with Propel, landing earned links from G2, Washington Post, and many more.

This resulted in a 255% increase in organic traffic in four months:

Results

  • 255% increase in organic traffic in four months
  • Quotes and brand features to improve brand and topical authority
  • Earned links from G2, Washington Post, and many more
  • Ranking #1 for high-valued keywords

“Zero to 70,000 organic visits per month.”

“We’ve gone from an unknown brand in the space to one that is thought of as a market leader. We’ve seen our site traffic increase from nothing to 70,000 organic visitors per month in 16 months.”

Caleb Frankel
Co-founder & COO of EarlyBird

EarlyBird was brand new on the fintech scene. Having just raised $3.1m in seed funding, they were making a big market push to drive brand awareness and trust in the financial gifting space.

EarlyBird has an inspiring mission that we truly resonated with: changing children’s futures by investing in their future. Giving them the wealth and prosperity they need to make a difference in the world.

Working with EarlyBird, our goal was to land crucial press coverage to drive brand awareness, traffic, and direct signups for their mobile fintech app.

The Solution: content, link building, and digital PR

Working with EarlyBird, we took a holistic SEO approach: having a technically sound website, creating the best in-class content needed to outrank companies like NerdWallet, Motley Fool (which we’ve outranked for major keywords already), and earning the best backlinks on the web.

Combined with digital PR and press mentions, we’ve built massive growth that has fueled thousands of application downloads and signups, and a thriving organic channel for sustained growth of the user base.

Press mentions are instances where your brand is mentioned and subsequently given a backlink in content online.

But, it goes far beyond just SEO benefits. These digital PR mentions drive awareness about your brand, and allow you to display your brand in front of ideal customers on blogs you actually recognize (hint: TechCrunch!).

These brand mentions have compounding benefits: (1) Signals to Google that your brand is trustworthy (2) improves your ability to rank for given keywords (3) scales your domain rating (4) and drives direct referral traffic and product adoption.

We quickly built press momentum with EarlyBird, landing a detailed feature on TechCrunch:

Diving into the EarlyBird brand, this piece drove major traction for referral traffic and brand awareness.

Combined with targeted press releases, backlink acquisition on niche relevant blogs, and insightful content pieces, we drove over 1,553 signups on their website:

EarlyBird’s Co-founder and CEO, Jordan Wexler, had some nice, unprompted words to say about our collaboration:

We appreciate you, Jordan 😊🤗

We capitalized on this momentum, continuing to publish more content and earn more backlinks from coveted publications.

In 16 months, we took EarlyBird from zero rankings to 70,000 per month in organic traffic, outranking brands like NerdWallet, Forbes, and many more.

This all positioned EarlyBird as a market leader to their ICP, fueling user acquisition to 20,000+ active users.

Here are the final results.
