This would mean an extra 2145 traffic to your website, with a low 5% conversion rate that would mean an extra 107 cleints for your practice each and every month. If your clients only spend an average of $50 each month this would mean an extra $5262 each and every month. This would be just 1 keyword, our dental websites rank for thousands of keywords. This is very exciting.

Experts have revealed that the top site will get 33% of all the clicks, the top 5 results get nearly 70%. If you practice’s site hits the top 5 for thousands of keywords it would mean so many more patients for your website, it can become overwhelming. The power of SEO is amazing, do not over look it.

SEO will bring an amazing amount of exposure to your business online, more patients to your practice will come for free each and every month. More and more people are searching for dentists in their area online, SEO gives you the chance to get to these potential new patients.

The good new is that niche dental SEO for pratices is still fairly new, so many of your competitors in your area will be new to it also. This means you have the opportunity to get to the new patients online before they do, your practice can utilize SEO to get ahead and make even more money than you already do.

Get started with dental SEO

For your marketing plan to work you need to know which keywords to target and how to monitor your success. SEO allows you to do this, your content should be focuses around what your dental patients require, you must answer their questions and solve their problems. When you publish this kind of content on your website rankings come easy.

For your practice to get started moving rankings in the right direction here is a dental search engine optimization strategy to follow.

Keyword research

Prospective patients online are searching for dentists everyday looking for specific services, these might include emergency teeth care, alignments, and much more. You can use a free keyword research tool to discover these phrases and their monthly search volumes. Some search phrases are more competitive than others and have higher monthly search volumes.

A denist can optimize their website for dental services and the keywords will be something like “teeth whitening New York" or “emergency dental care Texas". Content will be written around one main focus keyword (biggest search volume) and then will also target long tail variations on them.

To optimize a page perfectly these keywords must feature in the METADATA, the page/post headings, and within the body content. When a search engine bot crawls the page it needs to discover these keywords within the content. Do not use words like dentist or dentist surgery only, other words like root canal, tooth replacement, and others can be used.

For quick wins use a tool like Ubersuggest to discover if your dental website is already ranking for any keywords. Then you can make some on-page tweaks to push rankings over night.

Local search phrases

When it comes to your teeth people are looking locally, they want to find a practice near to them with many using phrases like “near me" in their search terms. A good SEO plan will ensure you target keyword with “near me" in the also the area where you operate. Find good target keywords and add your state after them, sometimes even cities and towns names have a good monthly search volume to them.

For local SEO to be completed your Name, Area, Phone (NAP) details should be on all pages of your dentist website. Many also embed a Google Map into their pages, this helps with rankings and helps clients find your practice.

Remember to claim your Google Business Page, this is where you can feature in the Local Listings section of the search results pages. This is also a way for clients to leave reviews about your dental business, this builds trust and conversion rates further on your website.

Content building strategy

Every dentist SEO strategy must include a content building plan, this means adding a blog to the website and adding to it weekly. A dentist writing about what they do builds trust, from an SEO point it means more lines in the water, more pages in the SERPs and more chances to pull traffic from them.

SEO is very time consuming, the blogging part of it can be just a few hours per week, but the results are well worth the effort. A dentist can write about dental care tips and tricks, these posts can include internal links to other pages, it helps the crawl bots find and index all the pages on a site. People looking for a dentist in an area can read these posts, they are more likely to turn into a paying client as the trust is increased.

Off-site promotion

Great content will earn quality links, the more quality links a site can earn means higher rankings in the search engines for the keywords. It is an on-going process, earning links should be looked at everyday.

After your quality content has been published you need to get it seen, to do this you can post the details on it on social media platforms. You need to reach out and connect with other dentistry websites, they will want to share your content with their readers if it is so good. Your position as a respected person in the dental field will grow as you do this, your website will be loved by Google. The big search engines use links as one of the biggest ranking signals, this will never change.
