Creating Value for YOUR Internet Business

Executive Summary

Objective:  To perform comprehensive research into Client's business with the purpose of identifying keyword phrases that would serve to increase search engine rankings in Google, MSN, Yahoo, and ASK.

Client Supplied Data:

Description of Business:  Client is a highly specialized healthcare search firm concentrating exclusively in the field of cardiology. Our medical staffing consultants specialize in placing qualified cardiology professionals in thriving heart centers, hospitals, physician groups, academic institutions and private practices nationwide.

Main Competitors:  Merritt Hawkins -; Cejka -; CompHealth -

Target Audience A:  Cardiologists of all specialties looking for jobs (non-invasive, invasive, interventional, Electrophysiology, Cardiotoracic Surgeons, Peds Cardios).  Includes those practicing as well as those coming out of residency.

Target Audience B: Groups needing cardiologists for their practice or hospital (Hospital/Organization HR staffs, CEOs, Hospital Administrators, and physician assistants).

Strategic Findings: 

  • Firms like,,,, and others dominate top 10 rankings in Google and Yahoo.  See Top 10 Analysis.
  • The 3 main competitors provided by Client are not strong online performers with regard to search rank.  See 3 Competitors Analysis.
  • There is significant opportunity to obtain high search engine rankings in the healthcare staffing industry.  The large employment firms have capitalized on Google's ranking system by virtue of large numbers of back links.  Well written content based on carefully selected keywords with a moderate number of back links is expected to achieve rankings that can drive traffic and positive ROI.

Keywords/Keyword Phrases Identified:

  • Eighteen (18) High Visibility, Low Competition keyword phrases have been identified for optimization.
  • Fourteen (14) High Competition, High Traffic keyword phrases have been identified for optimization. 
  • See Recommend Keywords report

Search Optimization Strategy:  The success of a web site in generating qualified traffic is influenced by a variety of factors.  Many of those factors are:

  • Ability to target and profile the audiences the site is attempting to reach.
  • Selecting keywords/phrases to match the target audiences.
  • Writing "content rich" pages for enough keyword phrases to convert search engines that this site is "an expert" site.
  • Very carefully writing Titles, Descriptions, employing Alt Tags, reducing unnecessary and voluminous html code, and correcting html errors that would impede the indexing of sites by search engines.
  • Putting a program in place to build back links over time, but to being building back links as new pages are added.
  • Monitoring keyword performance, evaluating site performance, and adjusting results over a period of 3 months to 1 year from optimized launch.

Work Going Forward, Pricing, and Schedule:
