About the Project

  • Industry: Real Estate.
  • Target Region: Miami, USA

This project is a successful Miami-based company offering the sale and rental of apartments in the most desirable neighborhoods. The niche is very competitive, and to gain recognition and a decent amount of leads, you need to have a good digital marketing strategy. Starting from organic SEO services they needed to leverage search engine marketing for apartments, increase traffic, and generate more leads through effective apartment search engine optimization.


The Challenge

Our client had a goal to increase their visibility on Google, especially for the top 10 most important search terms related to luxury real estate for rent and for sale in Miami.

Facing challenges such as limited visibility and the absence of an SEO strategy – we proposed to create one, to achieve a top-5 ranking for as many keywords as possible, improve the optimization of existing pages, and increase the number of inquiries.
With the right approach, this goal may not become that distant.

That’s why we conducted a site audit, analyzed competitors, and then created a promotion strategy that included On-page and Off-page promotions. Read on to discover how our SEO agency achieved growth in the three key metrics (rankings, traffic and leads) within the first three months with apartment search engine optimization.


Execution/Optimization Process

During the audit, some problems were identified on the site:

  • internal technical issues
  • incorrect metatags, titles, headings, etc.
  • non-SEO friendly URL links
  • unindexed URLs in the Google Search console
  • and server response time

Ater a certain period, these problems were solved.

Technical audit

We started with a technical audit, and identified any remaining technical errors that could prevent optimal site ranking.

Keyword Research

Continue with the keyword selection.
We collected the most relevant and less competitive keywords that potential clients use to search for Miami real estate, and
clustered them by page.


Metadata was optimized as well based on the collected keywords. Meta tags, including titles, descriptions, and headings, to increase page visibility in search engines.


The backlinks strategy was also absent,
so we created one, to improve rankings and trust from authoritative resources, with high-quality external links.

After improving these points, we used analytic tools to monitor traffic, site behavior, keyword effectiveness, and search engine rankings. To be aware of the success of our strategy, or adjustments if some needed to be made.

Within just 3 months, this client achieved wonderful results in search engine marketing for apartments. The real estate industry is highly competitive, but the results will satisfy you with the right SEO strategy.
