Centra Care is a medical care provider with locations across Florida, dedicated to providing top of the line care for patients around the clock – 24/7. Since it is available outside business hours, Centra Care is a viable alternative for individuals, especially those on a budget, who require urgent medical care. Link Building HQ has been working with Centra Care for the last 3 years and has established a highly successful working relationship.

The Challenge

When Centra Care came to LinkBuilding HQ in late 2015, it had less than 50 branded keywords and a low domain authority. Their website had also lost a significant number of Do-follow links (which allow Google and search engines to crawl back to your website).

While Centra Care had been successfully offering quality medical care to patients at their service centers, their digital presence clearly needed some work. Since users have shifted their focus to finding solutions online, even for medical care, Centra Care was clearly missing out at a massive untapped market. After all, according to a study by the Pew Internet & American Life Project, approximately 80% of internet users (or 93 million Americans), look for medical and healthcare-related topics online. LinkBuilding HQ knew it had to bring Centra Care’s numbers up, way up, if it wanted to leave the competition behind.

Working With Centra Care

With our experience and expertise, Centra Care could expect a reliable increase in quality links. Centra Care also understood that the best results require consistent efforts over a period of time. So they were very happy to hear our strategy, as we laid out a complete roadmap for their brand and showed them exactly how LinkBuilding HQ would help them leverage the power of quality links and branded keywords.

Our Strategy

At the end of the day, it’s a website’s ranking on a search engine page (SERP ranking) that really matters. But lasting results require consistent efforts. To produce lasting results for Centra Care, we decided to begin by building quality backlinks from established websites and platforms that enjoyed a wide readership in the medical care niche. These links would be considered relevant, and not come off as being intrusive or spam.

But building quality backlinks was not going to be enough: we also needed to spread the word about Centra Care’s urgent care services. To associate all related services to the brand, we needed to increase Centra Care’s branded keywords. This in turn would help them acquire increased traffic. Let’s take a look at a comparison between conversion rates for non-branded and branded keywords:

Non branded and branded conv rate

As can be seen in the comparison bar graph between the two, the conversion rate for branded keywords is at least twice as much than that for non-branded keywords. This cements its importance for just about any business that wishes to cater to online searches for queries, solutions, products or services. Simply put, better conversions mean better sales.
