Dental SEO FAQs.
Digital Marketing and local SEO guide for Dentists in Liverpool
Winning new patients and maintaining the loyalty of the existing ones can be challenging, but it should be the ultimate goal for any competent dental practice. It involves committed efforts, but the results are well worth it. Maintaining your rapport with existing patients is important. However, it is also essential to grow your practice and address the needs of new patients.
What is Dental SEO?
SEO stands for search engine optimization and it’s basically how to get websites ranked higher in Google and other search engines. SEO is so vital for Dental clinics to engage and captivate their local markets. Many dentists want more leads from their site and just cannot seem to get the patient growth they desire. Local SEO is the answer.
How do you know which dental keywords to target?
Although we have seen terms fluctuate and vary just a little bit depending on markets the clinic is in, the typical words we target are as follows: dentist (city name), dentists in (city name), dentists (city name), dentist (post-code), dental clinic (near me), dental clinics (your post-code), dental clinics (city name). We check these against Google Adwords Keyword Planner Tool to fid out which ones are the most searched keywords and then use the top 20-25 for doing the SEO of your dental surgery.
How will my dental practice show up in Google Maps and Bing Places?
We specialise in Local SEO and Local Search Marketing so this is the first thing we will do. We will create your Google My Business and Bing Places listings, verify them and add all the required details as well. If they are already appearing (sometimes Google and Bing pick up data from other sources/directories and show listings) we will claim and verify them and then edit to ensure they contain correct details.
What are local citations for dentists?
A local citation is any online mention of the name, address, and phone number (NAP) for a local business. Citations can occur on local business directories, on websites and apps, and on social platforms. Citations help Internet users to discover local businesses and can also impact local search engine rankings. As part of our local SEO services we will edit/amend existing citations and will create new citations each month to create greater emphasis on your local presence.
How many new patients can I expect from Dental SEO?
Local SEO for dentists can only increase your online visibility and your website gets found higher up in the search engines. This may increase the number of inquiries but how many new patients will sign up with you depends on many factors including the quality of your customer services and your website content.
How much time will it take to get my dental practice in top rankings?
Although the time required to get top ranking on Google depends on the current optimization level of your dental practice website and the level of competition in your area but, we usually start seeing positive results in 3-4 months. However, SEO is an ongoing process and has to be worked on each month. By continuing to do so, once we have achieved first page rankings, we can maintain it.
Can other Dentists or dental surgeries in my area use your SEO services?
No, not at all. We service only one dental practice in a set post code area. If you want to expand your coverage and want exclusivity, we can discuss that and find a solution.
