APMEX's Traffic Surges 700% After Winning Google Answer Boxes

Using Conductor Searchlight to Help Acquire Answer Boxes for Their Price Pages, Gold and Silver Seller APMEX Has Seen an Increase of 700% in That Segment's Traffic in 90 Days

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 8, 2016) -  APMEX is a billion dollar company and number one seller of gold, silver, and other precious metals online as investment products.

Though APMEX is vastly dominant in its space, competition from online affiliates prompted the company to invest in organic marketing platform, Conductor Searchlight.

"Going into this year, our CEO told us: 'Growing organic traffic is our number one goal for the entire company going in 2016.' SEO is the number one initiative of the company." - Steven Pope, Digital Marketing Manager, APMEX

Targeting Answer Boxes with Conductor Searchlight Increases Traffic 700%

One of the opportunities Conductor's technology surfaced for APMEX's team was answer boxes: a graphic and text element Google displays at the top of search engine results pages to directly answer searchers' questions.

These high volume terms are not only a rich source for qualified traffic; they're also a significant branding opportunity since Google prominently displays the APMEX logo along with the content in the SERP.

The APMEX team identified these opportunities through Conductor's keyword performance technology, which surfaces different search result types like answer boxes, image packs, video snippets, maps, and more.

But in Conductor, that data -- the kind that drives smart business decisions -- is at your fingertips. If you do X, you get Y. It's an equation.
