WSI Completes On Page SEO for Governors State University Site

Posted by on Dec 5, 2014 in blog, Case Study, SEO | 0 comments

WSI has recently completed the on-page search engine optimization for Governors State University, an Illinois state university located 35 miles south of Chicago. This year comes on top of an exciting year for GSU as they have transitioned from an upper-division public university that admitted only juniors, seniors and graduate-level students to a full 4-year university. As a four-year public university, they are currently serving more than 5,500 students and offer 64 degree and 24 certificate programs.

WSI then tackled the five schools and colleges, primarily focusing on graduate degrees, to match keywords to appropriate new landing pages. Examples of some of the high volume keywords are shown below: College of Arts and Sciences adult education, masters in computer science, communications degree, and it degree School of Extended Learning esl and six sigma certification chicago College of Education ed.d degree and masters in education College of Health and Human Services masters in nursing and masters in health administration College of Business and Public Administration mba and accounting degree   Off-page search engine optimization for GSU will begin in December. This involves creating content with relevant links on various third-party websites to improve their page rank.  This activity sends direct as well as indirect traffic to the site. Blogs at Blogger, WordPress, and Tumblr as well as local directory listings will be the major focus of this...
