We can’t deny it- the world has transformed. As technology advances and we all adapt to new ways of planning our holidays, our expectations and online behaviours have shifted as well.

Search engines are crucial to the holiday booking process, meaning your brand must be part of the consumer’s online journey; a journey that is complex and often convoluted.

The Role of SEO in Travel Marketing

SEO in the travel industry serves to promote, provide value, and enhance brand reputation and visibility. As the consumer journey varies, so do their paths to conversion. SEO can help your travel brand be seen at different touchpoints and stages, helping to boost brand awareness, develop lead nurturing, and the ultimate goal; conversions and revenue.


To identify user search intent, our specialist team of SEO travel experts understand the various stages of the decision-making process, known as ‘micro-moments’ by Google. These refer to the moments when people use search engines to answer a query, discover something new, or book a holiday. Each of these moments are crucial, as they shape opinions and drive decisions.

At Jam, we build strategies for travel brands that target each stage of this micro-moment, user-led process. We focus on brand awareness, lead nurturing, and conversion. But we don’t stop there. Fostering customer loyalty is often overlooked by SEO agencies, but after all the relationship with the customer shouldn’t end when the holiday does.

Research Moments (top funnel)

At the beginning of the user journey, customers are unlikely to have a preference for a particular travel brand. They are exploring destinations and ideas, on the lookout for inspiration. During this research phase, which may last for several weeks, customers know they want to book a holiday, but they don’t know where to, or with which provider. At Jam, our travel SEO strategies focus on broader keywords at this stage of the user journey. For example; ‘best winter sun destinations,’ or ‘best hotels in Portugal for children.’

Planning Moments (mid-funnel)

This stage always includes planning, which is often detailed. During this process, we expect your potential customers to narrow down their destination choices, look at reviews and pricing as key components. This is where we come in to generate lead nurturing campaigns through SEO, using curated and optimised content for local searches, such as ‘best places to surf in Spain or ‘things to see in Milan in Winter’. The intent is to be visible and authoritative in these search moments, building trust and sharing information to support users through this tricky stage of their journey.

Conversion Moments (bottom funnel)

At this stage, the customer has chosen where they want to go and conducted plenty of research. They are ready to book. At Jam, we don’t consider this job done. Bringing in our creative team, backed by a data-led approach, we’ll make sure your travel website is optimised for conversion, meaning when the right customer visits the right page at the right time, the chances of generating revenue are far greater.

Post-Conversion Moments

And it still doesn’t stop there. Just because you’ve now converted a researcher into a customer, you can still provide added-value. SEO content focused on attractions tours, car hire, restaurants etc, ensures you remain connected with your customer, building further authority,brand reputation and an opportunity for ancillary sales.
