Why Partner with Propellic for Travel SEO

Whether you’ve tried Facebook ads or sponsored content creators, you know travel marketing can be challenging. It’s difficult to get your tourism products and services in front of the right people. 

The ads may work for a time, but social media platforms are rarely transparent about how your ads are doing. Plus, when the ad’s turn off, you’re right back where you started. And not all tourism content creators can drive traffic to your site, and few of them can convert their audience into sales for you.

Hiring a travel SEO consultant will help your tourism website find the people searching for what you offer.

We Know How to Reach Your Audience When They Want to be Reached 

Travel is an investment. People want trustworthy resources when they’re planning a trip. Propellic knows when searchers are pre-planning, actively planning, or ready to book. We can help you target these searchers at every stage with travel industry SEO.

Travel SEO is Just One of Our Specialities

We know it’s tough to compete with tourism industry giants when it comes to travel marketing, but that’s never stopped us. Google’s algorithm is specific for different searches, and you need an SEO company that knows that.

We Provide Transparency and a Personalized SEO Strategy

We always create a custom strategy that aligns with your travel company’s goals and resources. You’ll get to know our process as we learn everything about your brand. We’re big on transparency, monthly reporting, and identifying areas of improvement before they become issues.

What is Travel SEO?

Travel SEO is search engine optimization for travel websites. These sites include those for tourism agencies, vacation planners, travel blogs, and sites that advertise cheap flights. The goal of travel SEO is to rank your company for travel search terms people are already using.

How Our Travel SEO Works

Our travel SEO services are a multi-step process to reach tourists at each step of their vacation planning. That means we help you plan your content and conduct Keyword Research. We also audit your pre-existing content to make sure everything on your site is doing the necessary work.

SEO for travel sites includes the key components listed below. Whether your travel website content is specific to a location, type of travel, or discounted flights and rooms, our travel SEO service will help your site stand out in relevant searches.

We've worked with many companies over the six years since I started Thrifty Traveler. PCL has been the easiest company we've ever worked with. It has been a great experience. They actually care about their customers, root for their success, and cheer them on.

The SEO Project Planner for Travel Sites

At Propellic, our SEO Audit Services are a six-step intensive process. These audits form the backbone of your ongoing tourism SEO campaign.

Website Quality Audit

Our Website Quality Audit is part of our SEO services where we perform a full crawl of your entire website.

We correlate each URL crawled with data from Google Analytics, Google Search Console, Keyword Rankings, and Backlinks to determine the best course of action for each section of your travel website. 

This information helps us build a high-level overview of your existing tourism website structure. It also allows us to see which pieces of your travel content convert your readers to meet your goals.

Technical Audit

The Technical Audit may sound intimidating, but it’s not. Technical SEO is important for large travel websites that have more than 5,000 pages with regular new content.

Because the travel industry is dynamic, new content is constant, creating some unfortunate byproducts. (Think 404 pages, broken redirect chains, orphan content, keyword cannibalization, and confusing categories.) 

An SEO Strategist completes this process manually. They look at every aspect of website accessibility — Content, Indexability, Crawlability, Links, Page Speed, and User Experience.

Then, we tell you how to best clean up the content and structure, with a plan for managing content in the future.

Keyword Research 

Keyword Research is a vital part of our SEO service.

In the travel industry, you can reach searchers at multiple stages of the sales funnel — from the pre-planning stages until they’re ready to buy.

We’ll help you choose target keywords based on relevancy, search volume, and keyword difficulty in this process.

Here are some keyword examples:

  • Best countries to visit in Europe: This keyword is for the searcher looking for travel inspiration. They’re probably in the pre-planning stage.
  • When is the best time to visit France: This keyword is excellent for those making a vacation plan.
  • Where can I book cheap flights to Paris: This will attract the searchers ready to travel and book their next trip. 
  • What are the best cafés in Paris: And once they book the trip and the searcher is traveling, this keyword will attract searchers looking for things to do and places to explore.

Depending on your travel website’s goals, you may want to target keywords for one specific stage of the travel research process. Or you may want to target each stage. SEO for travel agents can be tricky.

We’ll help you create the best plan to get travelers to contact you for help.

Competitor Keyword Gap Analysis

Ever wonder what keywords your main travel competitors are ranking for? Wonder no more! This analysis provides an overview of how your travel website performs compared to others in the industry. We’ll identify keywords where you outperform competitors, where you lag, and where you don’t rank at all. 

This travel SEO process is crucial for identifying which tourism topics you should avoid due to keyword difficulty or oversaturation. It also will help identify potential tourism topics or destinations people are already searching for that your competition hasn’t touched.

Content Audit

In the Content Audit, we’ll take an in-depth look at every resource, blog post, or article on your site. We’ll make recommendations to repurpose or edit some of your content for better SEO. Depending on the size of your travel website, this may be an ongoing process. 

We’ll work to help you understand which pages we recommend optimizing first. We base these recommendations on how quickly they can convert searchers, your current keyword ranking positions, and the overall SEO value of the page.

Content Strategy

We know content is an essential part of your site. After conducting our Keyword Research, we’ll create an Editorial Calendar for your travel website content. 

We’ll make a month-by-month plan using content topics we identify as the best opportunities to rank highly or content that will funnel traffic to your travel product pages, service offerings, or your email subscriptions. Our recommendations on SEO for your travel blog will help you rank in Google search results.

Link Building

Link building is vital to any travel SEO strategy. But you have to do it according to Google’s guidelines to avoid penalties. At Propellic, we do all our link building in-house. We identify opportunities for links on a client-by-client basis. That means we conduct our outreach with your travel website in mind.

This process helps Google see where your travel website exists in the overall ecosystem of the internet by showing which sites are linking back to yours. And we’ll determine the best strategy for link building for your website, whether it’s relevant guest posts, product roundups, or something else entirely.

On-Page SEO

We’ll make some on-page SEO recommendations for the pages we identify as ripe for ranking in Google. These are the easiest and possibly the quickest way to improve your site’s search appearance. 

These recommendations include a new page title, meta description, H1, and URL structure based on the target keyword. We’ll also make some alt text recommendations and adjust the sitewide schema markup.
