As an established property but a newly rebranded hotel, Margaritaville Hotel San Diego Gaslamp Quarter is looking to establish its newly minted hotel to the existing and potential market. In order to boost its traffic organically, Margaritaville turned to the Phrasing team to grow its local search performance.

What were our local search results?

  • Increased website visits by 49% (year over year)
  • Increased search views by 72% (year over year)
  • Increased phone calls by 25% (year over year)
  • Increased direction requests by 53% (year over year)

How did we improve the hotel’s local search performance?

As a team, we reviewed the most relevant and frequently searched content on the hotel’s website. We took that content and used it to both improve the listing itself as well as authored weekly sequences of posts that would not only boost visibility but drive traffic to the internal pages of the hotel’s website, improving the native search performance for non-branded keywords in the process.

By consistently optimizing the profile and intelligently sequencing the weekly posts, Phrasing was able to greatly improve the relevancy of the hotel for targeted keyword groups as well as improve the overall website click-through rate.
