Travel SEO Solutions

Our partnership approach

The travel industry is a highly competitive one, complicated by a cluttered field of local, national and international players. In this ever-evolving space, the Internet remains one constant: According to a recent survey of travelers, over 50% of all bookings happen online. More importantly, about 65% of those bookings happen directly on a brand’s website.

While this poses a great opportunity for digital marketers looking to reach eager and engaged travelers, it also means that web content must be optimized in order to connect with these prospective customers. Galileo Tech Media works with an array of noteworthy travel organizations to drive high-quality organic search traffic, craft compelling and linkable content, produce category-defining content and increase all-important bookings.

In our ongoing partnership with a leading international hotel group, we provide an array of SEO and content marketing solutions across their entire brand portfolio. Working on nearly 6,000 properties — including 90 hotels in the luxury category — we’ve achieved a broad range of goals, including enhancing search visibility and rankings via SEO tactics, driving targeted traffic on a local, national and international scale, producing compelling and brand-worthy content for a variety of target audiences, and increasing direct bookings online.

Galileo Tech Media has also conducted thousands of technical and local SEO audits on behalf of this client partner, ensuring consistency and accuracy across a variety of their digital touchpoints, including web pages and social media channels.
