Improving SEO Visibility

Center for Diagnostic Imaging


Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI) provides medical imaging solutions throughout the United States and is headquartered in Minneapolis, MN. Today, they operate one of the nation’s largest provider networks for diagnostic imaging, interventional radiology and mobile imaging services.

CDI chose Rank Crankers as their SEO partner, tasked with improving organic search visibility. First, we set out to understand and identify search queries patients utilize when circumstances require medical imaging. We utilized those learnings to deliver site optimizations and content opportunities for CDI to improve visibility of existing content and fill in gaps where valuable content previously did not exist.

Project Goal:
