The Challenge

ISC was having trouble finding surrogate candidates even when they were actively searching for potential agencies. Search engine visibility and poor user experience were causing poor organic performance - traffic volume was low and conversions were even lower.

Improve search engine visibility for Surrogacy keywords

ISC was having trouble finding surrogacy candidates via organic search due to very limited visibility in search engines. When they could drive traffic, the website was slow and navigation convoluted, contributing to both low search engine rankings and poor conversion performance. The website contained content that was duplicative or no longer relevant, which dinged search engine rankings and reduced the importance of surrogacy-related keywords.
