What is dental SEO and why is it important for your dental practice?

In this era of digital technology, it has become common knowledge that most people carry out searches for health services, such as dental practices, online. They type their query into the Google search bar and are presented with a list of websites, and they tend to visit the first few websites on that list, because they seem the most relevant to their search. People know that Google has the answer to everything. So when they are searching for dental terms in your area, unless Google recognises that you have the answers that they are looking for, then your website may as well be non-existent and you will not be able to reach your patients online. Instead, you will be losing your patients to your local competitors, because they will be presented to the patient as having the answers or being able to provide the treatments and procedures that the patient is looking for. Search engine optimisation (dental SEO) is a marketing technique which is made up of different methods that can help your website rank higher than the websites of your local competition, in response to certain dental keywords when searched in your local area.

Google collects information about every page on the world wide web and helps people find what they are looking for. With a higher ranking, you are able to attract a greater number of visitors to your website. To get higher rankings, you need to have an idea of how the different methods work and the best way to do this is to speak to an experienced dental marketing team who can help put together an effective marketing strategy for you.

What is content marketing?


Content marketing is a powerful tool in creating and maintaining effective dental SEO. By creating new content on a regular basis for your website, you will boost dental SEO, help keep your existing patients happy and informed, whilst attracting the attention of new patients at the same time. By promoting the importance of oral health, you will encourage patients to visit you more regularly and by writing about different treatment procedures at your practice you will encourage existing patients to consider further dental treatment. For effective content marketing, a specialised dental marketing team will be able to find out which dental terms are searched for most frequently in your geographical vicinity and instruct their specialist writers to create individually tailored articles and blogs based around these terms to upload on a regular basis. This helps generate leads and attracts quality patients, because they are already interested in what you have to offer. So, by visiting your website they will only be encouraged further to address their dental issue or take into consideration the treatments and procedures that you are offering.
