Health Insurance Search Behavior Model

Healthcare SEO

Health Insurance SEORecently a major life insurance company contracted me to develop a set of Behavior Models to aid in their search marketing efforts.  The results enabled them to make major changes to their website’s ability to capture active consumer searches.

Currently I am looking at how consumers search for Health Insurance. Search behavior models provide a complete categorized overview of consumer search behavior which can dramatically improve your websites power to pull people. They also provide strategic focus for:

  • Identifying landing page opportunities.
  • Providing editorial focus for websites.
  • Identifying preferred terminology for ads.
  • Defining your information architecture.
  • Driving your content strategy.
  • Focusing your SEO strategy.
  • Normalizing your website with consumer intent.
  • Drawing consumers with active intent to your website.
