The conference offers all who attend networking opportunities, engaging programs, and a chance to learn the latest higher ed marketing strategies from energized thought leaders.

Higher Education SEO Session Description

Paula French and the other industry experts mentioned above will discuss a critical gap in higher education digital marketing: PCO units lack SEO strategies to attract new adult learners and nurture them down the recruitment funnel.

Thankfully, our experienced higher education marketing presenters offer solutions.

To address this gap, universities must prioritize SEO tactics that make it easy to access information about their programs or certificates via search.

During the presentation, our presenters will review real-world examples of SEO strategies and tactics that addressed this gap for Search Influence, LSU, Tulane SoPA, and the University of Minnesota.

The higher education SEO strategies and tactics they will explore include:

  • Using blogs to increase lead-to-application conversion
  • Leaning on keywords and content when launching new degrees
  • Using blogs to drive new website users
  • Utilizing profiles and public relations to build links
  • Leveraging tools for direction and monitoring
  • Using core web vitals to measure SEO health
