The brief

Soliant and Sunbelt Staffing are two brands owned by Adecco, specializing in medical recruitment. One key area for both is nursing jobs, and in particular, travel nursing. In the recruitment market, the SERPs are dominated by general jobs boards such as and Simply Hired, as well as local operators in each regional market. There are no local offices, which means that we cannot employ local SEO tactics such as Google MyBusiness pages.


Due to the nature of the industry, individual pages are added and dropped often due to jobs being available and filled. Prior to Search Laboratory, Soliant had been under a manual action penalty.

The main objective of this campaign was to increase new users and conversions for their websites.

The solution

Content and online PR


Search Laboratory secured 80 links to the site, and ten pieces of coverage. The average domain of those sites stands at an amazing 53.6.


The focus was to secure authoritative and relevant links from the medical niche. This has been achieved through various tactics and campaigns, one of which was Soliant’s Most Beautiful Hospitals Campaign. The content and online PR team drove entrants to the competition by contacting relevant hospitals and local/national media outlets, which in turn led to links and coverage for Soliant. Follow-ups with the hospitals and their local media were done once the shortlisted hospitals and winners were selected to drive traffic, votes and more coverage.
