Supercharging AddressFinders Growth With SEO
AddressFinder is an address solution software business that operates throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Address verification and address autocomplete are their bread and butter; born from the desire to improve business outcomes for customers, data quality and the user experience when collecting addresses. They have ANZ’s best address database with some super slick software, providing checkout, form, and bulk address verification solutions to thousands of customers.
Their product, like many software solutions, operates in a tight niche, made even tighter by the geographies they currently target.
They’d seen good organic growth over the last 10 years, but they were keen to see if a growth marketing perspective could help them scale further and increase the impact of their software. AddressFinder came to us ready and eager to expand.
- Increase the number of new sign-ups
- Grow their organic website presence
- Increase the number of new paying accounts
When we first started working with AddressFinder in February 2021, we came to them with bold ideas on how we could supercharge their organic traffic and grow their number of new paying signups each month – but we were immediately road blocked with an outdated and inefficient tracking setup.
Their main issues were:
- Their tracking system didn’t distinguish between their Australian and New Zealand markets.
- Their main conversion point (signing up for an account) was away from their website, which made it difficult to attribute conversions to new or existing marketing channels.
To push our strategy forward, we implemented cross-domain tracking and split out their analytics properties so that we could have clarity on their web performance by individual channels.
Now we were ready to start dialing up the notches!
Starting with keyword research, we identified the slight differences and uniqueness in search across their target countries. We optimised all on-page content and supercharged our impact with comprehensive internal linking strategies. We further bolstered our target pages authority via external link outreach.
After these extensive on-page optimisations and link generation methods, we collected the number 1 ranking throughout Australia and New Zealand for their core service keywords. Although these keywords were super valuable from a commercial perspective, they were very niche and relatively low in overall search volume. As a result, we decided to chase more long-tail, demand-generating terms.
Since their launch, they’ve had over 172,628 organic clicks and together have generated thousands of links from over 161 unique domains. In November 2021, we then achieved the most spectacular results in terms of organic traffic. The tool was ranking at spot no.1 and we saw a 20,000% increase in organic traffic year-on-year!

Crazy WoW improvements leading to an explosion of traffic when our new tool hit the number 1-3 rankings.
Not only did we see a massive increase in organic traffic across their sites, but signups activations were up 60% YoY and total signup growth was also up by 76%.
After implementing a number of SEO optimisations over the course of the year, when comparing January 2021 (just before we started) to January 2022 – we’re seeing an average monthly increase of:
Non-brand organic clicks up by 269%, signup activation rate increase by 64%, and over 900 number one rankings for unique keywords.
We improved efficiencies throughout the site, with tailored and sophisticated SEO strategies to strengthen AddressFinder’s brand and objectives. Now in 2022, we continue our work with AddressFinder through hands-on SEO consulting and implementation, supercharging traffic whilst maintaining a strong focus on signup quality.
