SEO to Drive Qualified Leads

Joe Goers August 1, 2018

In the B2B digital marketing world, SEO at times can take a back seat to paid search in terms of lead generation. Here is a real-life example illustrating how SEO can be a powerful B2B lead generation tactic.

SEO Lead Generation

What is SEO Lead Generation?

SEO lead generation is the use of organic search strategies to improve rankings and drive qualified traffic in order to increase conversions on your website. There are many types of conversions that can be tracked (i.e. form fills, blog/newsletter subscriptions, asset downloads, etc.) Calls-to-action and conversions should be aligned with customers’ needs and business goals.

Why It’s Still Relevant

Search engines have been around for a while now and though I’m not a fortune teller, I don’t see them going away anytime soon. According to, 3.5 billion searches are happening per day and 1.2 trillion searches per year worldwide on Google and that is only one search engine! You still have Yahoo and Bing to consider. Bottom line, that means there is a lot of people using search engines to research, find products and services your organization offers. But are those people finding you on them? Better yet, are they finding you organically?

Though SEO can be confusing and frustrating at times, it is proven to be a powerful channel to improve brand awareness and generate leads. Still don’t believe me? Check out the client example below to learn how we helped them transform their website into a SEO lead generation machine!
