The importance of a fantastic website and good dental SEO
Firstly an online marketing team will create a bespoke, modern, attractive and informative website for your practice which will address all aspects of the business and containing all the information, which a potential patient may be looking for with regards to their dental needs, so that when someone finds your website they do not need to look elsewhere.
Once the website is up and running there is plenty of work left to do and unfortunately a fantastic website on its own is not enough. Online marketing requires regular maintenance and new content all the time. To make your website visible to potential patients who are searching for their dental needs in your area, a good digital marketing team will provide information with regards to Google advertisements and pay-per-click but focus on creating and maintaining good Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) for your dental practice. This is a process by which you enable Google to recognise that you have the answers to what people are looking for when they are trying to find out about their dental issues on the search engine. Google looks at a question and then makes a list of all the possible websites which are able to answer that question, a good marketing team knows the techniques and algorithms used by Google to create this list and will tailor your website and any content created for you in such a way so that you can rank highly on Google’s list of results for such dental searches in your area over a long term basis.
Maintaining good SEO requires creating new content all the time in the form of on-site articles and blogs for your practice. Not only does this help Google recognise your website but it also helps nurture potential patients, and build trust and credibility for your practice to help encourage them to pick up the phone book an appointment, and eventually become a regular patient with you.
