Why SEO is Critical for K-12 Educational Service Providers

Increase Non-Branded Search Visibility

Over 80% of searches start with a non-branded keyword, or a keyword that is not brand specific. For example, “Phillips Exeter Academy” is a branded term, while “private school near me” is non-branded. Without SEO or content marketing, most K-12 education providers miss out on capturing users from non-branded traffic. Users are already searching for your services, we just help you capitalize on it.

Strengthen Your Conversion Funnel

SEO services will not only look at generating new opportunities but will also identify how to convert more of your existing users. We focus on broad obstacles to customer conversion, noting solutions and opportunities educational service providers can use to further increase conversions and goal completion.

Become an Industry Leader

From a branding perspective, SEO content marketing services help establish your institution as a thought leader in the field of education. Creating new content and strengthening your organic visibility will increase brand awareness.

SEO Digital Marketing for K- 12 Education

SEO and content marketing strategies will bring awareness to your K-12 educational courses, programs, EdTech, and tutoring services.


The educational space can be very competitive with saturated search results. It is important that education websites assert themselves as leaders in their space through authoritative content.

  • Turn content into conversion assets. What kind of questions do your best customers ask before converting? We go beyond keyword-targeted content to make sure each piece is created to address customer pain points and showcase your company’s Unique Value Propositions.
  • Become the go-to resource for K-12 Education. How can content creation improve your brand’s visibility and reputation? We identify what content will best reach your customers and will provide them with valuable takeaways.


SEO is only as good as the type of customers it attracts. Ensuring that SEO efforts bring in your best customers and that your site is optimized to convert them is key to generating organic conversions.

  • Build a frictionless conversion path for users. We identify the best conversion path for users and remove barriers to that path. Users should be able to easily navigate your site and reach valuable pages.
  • Showcase your unique value. How does your product or service stand out from the competition? What do you do better? These are the questions we ask to make sure your website communicates unique differentiators to customers.

Educational keyword search intent alignment

Many keywords in the educational space have an informational intent, rather than the intent to buy a product or service. We focus on keywords that have conversion intent.

  • Understand the search intent of educational keywords you are targeting. We evaluate existing keywords that lead to rankings, but not conversions. Does the ranking page match the search intent of users searching for that keyword? For example, “early education care” would be best targeted with an optimized Google My Business listing, since the intent is to find different early childhood education options in the area.
  • Look into competitor gaps. What are other K-12 educational service providers, offering the same services as you, ranking for? Would you benefit from pursuing those rankings?

technical seo hygiene

While technical SEO is important, most agencies recommend investing excessive time and money into technical fixes that don’t move the needle. We only prioritize addressing technical fixes that will lead to meaningful organic visibility and revenue.

  • Audit for technical issues. What technical issues prevent your web pages from being indexed and ranked? We identify and recommend fixes that address the top issues on your website.
  • Site architecture optimization. How can the organization of your website be optimized for SEO? We evaluate your URL structure, navigation, and page organization to identify low-hanging fruit opportunities that make your website SEO-friendly.

Focus on Branding & Revenue, not just Traffic

Getting a lot of traffic, but no conversions or sign-ups? Maybe you’re focusing on the wrong kind of traffic.

For example, let’s say you offer AP exam tutoring services online.

A page targeting the keyword “ap exam prep” may bring your website thousands of visitors every month, but most of them are looking for free resources or practice exam tests. So, once users searching “ap exam prep” reach your website, they may find that your paid services do not satisfy their intent.

On the other hand, ranking first for a page targeting the keyword “ap exam tutoring services online” will bring you fewer visitors per month, but they are almost certainly looking exactly for the services you offer and will convert.
