Look for keywords that big brands pass over. Choose competitors on search with: low authority, subpar content, and low scores for optimization. Make the SEO writing checklist simpler so writers find it easy to optimize content. Teach the internal team about SEO research, content structuring, and content briefing.

12% Of All Content Lands In Top 3

Before teaming up with SEO experts, brands often adopt a set-it-and-forget-it content approach. They write, polish, publish, and move on. This results in articles landing in the top 100 but not the top 3 on Google - which is where over 70% of web traffic flows.

To avoid fitting the mold, we tracked metrics and optimized pieces that trended upwards. Today, 12% of Vending Locator content hits the top 3 in search results.
