Search engine optimization (SEO) and dental website design
Dental professionals are in a highly competitive market, so it’s essential that internet users can find your website with ease. How can you make it easier for patients to find your website instead of the websites of your fiercest competitors?
Consider how the average internet user finds a dentist. Perhaps someone just moved into your area or are no longer satisfied with their current dentist. The vast majority of people will use their smartphones to conduct a search. They may enter, “Dentist near me” or “local dentist” in the search engine toolbar and wait for the result.
The first thing they see is a listing of local dental professionals on Google Maps. Just like you, the vast majority of users will closely examine the first 2 or 3 practices and take a close look at the total number of reviews and the overall star rating. At this point, some users will select a website while others may read some of the Google reviews.
All of which underscores the importance of ensuring your dental website ranks at the top of the Google Maps listings. Our dental website design experts know how to catapult your site to the top of the listings and keep it there.
First, we create a Google listing for your business. Next, we gather citations 9which are similar to links) that give your website credibility with Google’s algorithms. As your website climbs up the ranking list, we continue to add citations. Meanwhile, we help you gather positive reviews with our proprietary text linking tool because the more reviews you garner, the better it is for your business.
To ensure that the search phrases users type into the toolbar lead people to your site, we incorporate keyword phrases into the written content on your website. Professional writers know how to weave keyword phrases into the fabric of your content in an organic way that Google immediately rewards. If a person types, “Dentist near me” into their smartphone, your business pops up at the top of the list.
By adding inbound and outbound links, we further bolster the integrity of your website’s SEO. These proven techniques not only work, but they also drive your practice and your bottom line. Remember that your website has one purpose – to drive people to your practice. SEO is an essential part of any dental website design and may only be ignored at your peril.
Marketing that drives your dental website design
Effective SEO drives patients to your website. Your attractive website visually draws them into the page. How do you convert this user into a new patient and get them to contact your dental office?
The answer to this question lies in your dental website marketing. Obviously, the primary goal of your website is to attract new patients to your practice. Effective marketing establishes why your practice is the one that the user should choose.
There are multiple marketing tools our website design experts use to accomplish this goal. First and foremost, it’s vital that website visitors either leave their personal information so that you can contact them or contact you directly by email or phone. Our website designers use calls-to-action for this purpose. Calls-to-action are distributed strategically throughout the website so users can easily take that crucial step.
We can even incorporate an online schedule request calendar on your website, making it even easier for new clients to make an appointment. Visitor feedback can also be incorporated onto the site so patients can express their opinions and concerns privately.
Another valuable dental website design marketing tool are custom videos. You can create videos that are educational in nature, or that feature the unique attributes of your clinic, technology, or procedures. When it comes to marketing, the sky’s the limit.
As mentioned above, Google ratings are a valuable way to help your website rank but they are also an irreplaceable marketing tool that should never be ignored. People seek out reviews because the opinions of other people carry a lot of weight in our psyche. If a large number of patients confirm the exceptional nature of your practice, trust in your ability is immediately built.
If you’ve ever tried to get reviews from patients, then you already know how difficult this can be. Once patients walk away from your office, they go about their daily routine and never make the time to leave a positive review.
To counter this problem, we designed a proprietary tool to help you get reviews from patients. This tool allows you to immediately send a short link to your patient’s smartphone. When they click the link, they are immediately taken to a page where they can leave their Google review. You can send the link while they’re standing in your dental clinic or wait until later in the day. Either way, you will quickly accumulate valuable reviews that significantly aid your marketing goals.
Ongoing website and SEO maintenance that keeps you at the top of the rankings
Dominating your competition doesn’t stop when your dental website design is done and your website goes live. It’s important to provide existing patients with frequent updates and maintain the vitality of your SEO strategy.
