Y Scouts

a new company in a competitive industry


Y Scouts is a purpose-based executive search firm that is transforming how people and organizations connect to work that matters. When Y Scouts first launched in 2012, Markitors built their website and began employing an SEO strategy that would position the company to receive leads from purpose-based organizations with executive recruitment needs.


As a new company in a competitive industry, Y Scouts faced an uphill battle to get visibility online through keyword searches. Search engine result pages were dominated by companies that were founded in 1948, with more office locations than Y Scouts had employees. How do you compete against large companies with a 70 year head start?


Markitors identified more than 600 long-tail keywords that related to Y Scouts services, but had low competition online. Markitors developed more than 600 landing pages and blog posts targeting these keywords, executed a targeted backlink strategy to raise the overall domain authority for Y Scouts.


Y Scouts now receives more than 50,000 visits per month to their website from organic search, with many of these visits converting to leads and new customers. Y Scouts ranks on the first page of Google, and sometimes in the first position on Google, for keywords ranging from “executive interview questions” to local “executive search firm” related searches.

Y Scouts has been a client of Markitors for more than 6 years, entrusting us to improve their search result positions and to give them a competitive advantage online.
