Top 10 Insurance Industry Websites by Organic Traffic
Everyone in the insurance industry faces tremendous competition from other companies. Only high-ranking insurance websites tend to get noticed by consumers. When you realize how much competition you face, it becomes clear that you need to find ways to make your website more appealing to search engines and consumers.
The top insurance websites don’t hold their positions due to mere luck. Rather, they use strategic campaigns that improve their rankings and increase traffic, and you can learn from their successes.
Types of Insurance Websites
The term “insurance website” can cover a lot of topics. Insurance companies sell a broad range of policies, including those for:
Some companies sell multiple types of insurance policies while others focus on a specific option. The top 10 insurance websites by traffic will include both types of companies.
Top 10 Insurance-Related Websites
SimilarWeb provides detailed reports about how websites perform. You can’t always rely on the service to give you the specific information that you need, though. The following list offers a prime example of this.
Technically, it lists the top 10 insurance websites by traffic. When you take a closer look, though, you find that some of the websites don’t apply to an English-speaking audience. Others are only partially related to the insurance industry.
Is healthcare.gov really an insurance website? It can help Americans find out whether they qualify for health insurance subsidies. It can also help some Americans explore health insurance policies for their areas. It doesn’t fit the insurance category in the same way as USAA, Kaiser Permanente, or Geico, though.
Before digging into how the top insurance companies manage to attract so much traffic to their websites, it makes sense to edit the list and remove some outliers that don’t truly represent an insurance company’s competitors.
Top 10 U.S. Insurance Company Websites
Below, you will find the edited list of the top 10 insurance company websites.
United Healthcare (UHC)
Now, we can take a closer look at their traffic and other metrics to see how well they perform.
Global Rank: 1,680
U.S. Rank: 342
Insurance Rank: 1
Over the last six months (June to November 2020), an average of 19.78 million people per month visited the USAA website. Traffic remained fairly steady over that period. Traffic peaked in July when 24.7 million people visited the site.
While visiting the USAA website, people spent an average of 7 minutes and 51 seconds on the site. They navigated to an average 8.39 pages per visit. The site had a 20% bounce rate, which likely means visitors didn’t see the content they wanted or clicked on the website’s link by accident.
Not surprisingly, nearly all (98.72%) of the site’s traffic came from the United States. Other visits came from:
United Kingdom (0.14%)
Puerto Rico (0.06%)
USAA Website Traffic Sources
Before you can learn anything from USAA’s website, you need to know how people came to the site. The source of traffic matters a lot when creating a strategy to bring more visitors to your site.
Most of USAA’s traffic (85.44%) came from organic keyword searches. Only 14.56% came from PPC campaigns. A meager 1.17% came from social media platforms.
Organic Keywords Used by USAA
USAA’s content marketing strategy involves about 5,620 organic keywords. Clearly, the company did its research. You don’t rank for that many keywords by happenstance.
Some organic keywords contributed to traffic more than others. The top 5 organic keywords are:
"USAA," which attracted 39.83% of traffic.
"USAA login," which attracted 9.19% of traffic.
"USAA insurance," which attracted 1.82% of traffic.
"usaa.com," which attracted 1.48% of traffic.
"usaa.com login," which attracted 0.55% of traffic.
Paid Keywords Used by USAA
Not all of the paid keywords used by USAA apply to insurance. Out of 544 keywords, the top 5 were:
"USAA" (8.53% of traffic)
"USAA insurance" (0.58% of traffic)
"USAA auto insurance" (0.21% of traffic)
"USAA car rental" (0.20% of traffic)

Organic Keywords Used by Kaiser Permanente
Kaiser Permanente’s content marketing strategy includes 18,884 organic keywords. That’s a considerable amount of research that has probably contributed to its high traffic rate.

"Kaiser" attracted 10.18% of traffic,
"Kaiser Permanente" attracted 6.28% of traffic.
"Kaiser login" attracted 4.50% of traffic.
"Kaiser Permanente..." attracted 3.18% of traffic.

Content Marketing Grows Website Traffic
The data makes it obvious that content marketing that focuses on organic keywords gives the top 10 insurance websites by traffic an advantage over their competitors. Paid keywords rarely account for 1% of a site’s traffic.
Can Your Insurance Website Get a Higher Ranking?
The good news is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on PPC campaigns to compete with insurance websites. You will get better results by dedicating your time and effort to content marketing that focuses on high-performance keywords.
However, determining which keywords to use can become problematic for small businesses because the best keyword research tools often cost hundreds of dollars per month. On top of that, you have to pay someone to write optimized content that will attract search engines. Your pages also need to hold the attention of human readers. It’s a delicate balance that demands special skills.
Your insurance website can get a higher ranking, but you probably need to find outside help to reach your goal. Scripted offers managed and self-serve memberships that will help you reach your target audience and increase your ranking.
