Background

Casita.com is a student accommodation online marketplace that helps university students find accommodation overseas, across study destinations such as the UK, Australia & U.S. Students can choose and book accommodation from anywhere.

Since the global volume for student housing searches is high, Casita wanted to improve its rankings in Google Search, there by attracting more traffic to its site and more room bookings.
