SEO for higher education is anchored on finding the right keywords that prospective students would use to find your school or programs and then optimizing your website to improve your chances of being found for those targeted phrases.

Getting to page one of the search results is vital because: 

  • 75% of prospective students don’t even click past the first page!
  • The first 3 organic search results get 60% of all traffic from a web search. 
  • Inquiries from search engines have a 14.6% close rate, compared to just 1.7% from channels like print or direct mail advertising.
