There's plenty of keywords for mortgage SEO & PPC campaigns out there. Many mortgage brokers that try to do their online marketing themselves only run Adwords and optimize their site's for the most common keywords out there. (And unfortunately, many agencies do too...shame on them.)
If you really want to up your game, you need to find more keywords than the average joe. Find things that potential consumers are searching for that are even lower in the sales funnel.
Who do you think is more likely to be ready to apply now -- someone searching for "mortgage broker" or someone searching for "home loans"? I'd say the latter. There's so many golden nugget keywords that no one thinks of optimizing for or running ads to. That's where the real money is!
Some of the most common keywords in mortgage industry revolve around general mortgage terms + adding a city locale or state. These are what we'd call "money keywords" in SEO. That being said, they're going to be the most difficult to rank for with SEO and also be the most expensive more likely than not when bidding on them on PPC platforms like Google Adwords.
Here's a list of some common location based mortgage keywords:
You can also use these same keywords in any order and add stop words such as "Mortgage Brokers in City".
Remember, if you target different loan types keywords for SEO, you want to make sure to create a page about each loan types. So if you're targeting home loans, you want to create an entire service page that's about home loans.
