Search engine optimisation (dental SEO) is an important marketing method that needs to be carried out effectively, to make sure that you have a strong online presence. There is no point in having a fantastic dental website if it cannot be found. If someone is looking for a dentist in your area, is experiencing dental issues and wants to find out more about symptoms or treatment, then in this age of digital technology the most likely solution is that they will type their query into the search bar on Google. When they click the search button it is important that your website comes up on the first page of those search results. This is because in these modern and hectic times, over 90% of searchers on Google will only check out the websites which come up on the first page and even then it is most likely that they will only click on the first two or three sites on the list. To make sure that you are one of them, without having to pay large sums of money for Google advertisements, you need to maintain dental SEO. This is a time consuming and ever-changing process, and can be complicated for those who are not trained in information technology so, unless you have a dedicated team member looking after your dental marketing, it is important to consult an experienced dental marketing team who can deal with these issues for you.
It all begins with a good dental website
An award-winning dental marketing team will be able to create a bespoke, modern and attractive website for your practice, and if you already have one, then they can work their magic to update it for you, so that you can make the most out of your online marketing. The website would be developed in such a way, so that when a potential patient reaches your homepage they are immediately encouraged to explore the website further.
All the information with regard to their dental query that they could need should be immediately available, so that they do not have to check out any other websites on the search results page to find out what your competitors may be offering.
The importance of keywords
There are many systems which are used to maintain SEO. The keyword system is vital in ensuring good SEO. This includes finding out which dental terms are searched for most frequently in your geographical vicinity and then using these terms strategically and frequently throughout your website and any other content which is created for your practice. Google robots, which are continuously scanning the world wide web and indexing pages as they are updated, will then recognise these keywords and boost you up the list of those search results. The aim of the process is to make Google recognise that you have all the answers that the patient is looking for.
To help you save time and money and also to help make the most of digital marketing in attracting new patients to your practice, seek the advice and expertise of an experienced dental marketing team and watch how they can help boost the success of your business very soon.
