Local SEO for dentists
Many clients seeing a dentist’s services will prefer to visit a reliable office close to their residence, which is why local SEO is a perfect solution for you. One of the best techniques in local SEO includes the use of databases holding geographical information pertaining to local businesses. These databases contain information such as business name, location, contact details, and a map of your location as would be seen on Google Maps. BLU Digital Solutions will help you set up your listing. For instance, if you are an orthodontist based in Little Rock and a potential client residing there keys in ‘Orthodontist based in Little Rock,’ your listing will show, thus bringing them to your website and office.

As seen above, patients looking for professional dentist services key in specific phrases on their search engine of choice to create a list of clinics they may visit. To determine these key phrases, a thorough market and competitor analysis is important.

On-page dental SEO marketing refers to all the techniques and changes you use on your website to make it appealing to your visitors and search engine bot friendly. These include the adaption of HTML and content throughout your website’s frontend. Such methods include:
- Title and meta-description optimization: Google only presents the first 70 characters of your page’s title, including spaces, on the search results. Thus, you want to ensure that it never goes over 70 characters. The meta-description shows readers what the article they are about to open is about, and never goes over 156 characters.
- Content optimization: as a dentist, you are uniquely qualified to offer excellent advice to customers regarding oral health. Use your expertise to create excellent content for your site, and add the keywords identified earlier without stuffing. Also, add your clinic’s details to the articles without overdoing it. Such content is supposed to be engaging and helpful rather than overly sales-oriented.
- Internal linking: this is a technique where you link to other pages on your website in every new post you make. These links will increase the time spent on your website by visitors and ‘remind’ search engines that you have plenty of content on your website. Search engines also find your content more easily if internal links are leading to it on your site.
- Proper article formatting: you want your articles to be easier to read and follow to avoid having a high bounce rate. Methods you can use to format your work well include the use of subtitles that are rich in keywords and using bulleted points, which make it possible for your site to be used for ‘Google snippets.’
- Use images and videos: in medicine and dentistry, images help readers have a better picture of what you are saying and understand it better. Optimized images and other forms of media have been found to raise rankings on Google.
