Search Engine Optimisation

Real search is about providing valuable information when it’s really needed to those who are actually looking for it.

First place is everything!

Time spent building a solid foundation will pay for itself ten-fold.

If you are interested in succeeding online, an organic search engine optimisation (SEO) strategy is essential. It remains the most important component of any business’ branding efforts and online presence.

With the best will in the world (and the best website for that matter) if you fall outside of the first few Google results, your website will not be seen. It is our job to put your website in front of potential patients who are actively searching for dental services in your area.

When it comes to SEO, there is no quick win. Building a healthy content profile – spread out over months and years – is the very best way to maintain a high-performing, sustainable search engine presence.

Working exclusively with the dental profession is especially valuable when it comes to SEO. Unlike other SEO companies, we have years of historical data to base our ever-evolving techniques upon, delivering many hundreds of first place rankings to our customers.

Knowing the click through rates for ‘tooth whitening’ compared with ‘teeth whitening’ may seem insignificant but in SEO terms, it is our industry specific knowledge that will drive extra traffic to your website and ultimately, generate more new patients to your practice.

At Dental Design, our SEO specialists are all Google accredited with more than 20 years dental marketing expertise between them.

Google Places

Local search

One out of every 5 searches on Google is related to location, so it is extremely important for your practice’s website to be optimised with a ‘geo qualifier’ or location keyword. The ‘geo qualifier keyword’ will drive the majority of traffic to your website.

google-search-smallWhen a potential customer types in a query such as ‘Dentist’ and a location keyword such as ‘Poole’, the top results display an integrated natural and local search listing. Without an optimised google places listing it is extremely hard to rank well for local search.

Dental Design can work on your google places listing to optimise it and therefore boost your practice’s online presence, drive traffic to your website and increase appointment bookings. Whilst it is not possible to guarantee results on google, if your google places listing is not optimised, it is unlikely to perform as well as it could. And therefore you will not obtain the patients you deserve.

What is google places?

As you can see in the image above, Google Places is a directory which lists your Dental Practices name, address, contact details, a positional marker on the map and a link to your website. Google Places also has to option to add pictures, videos and customer reviews. This information will appear above the organic listings when a location based keyword is searched and increase customer visits to your website.

Google Places also offers the ability for business owners to post real-time updates to their Place Page. You might want to advertise a teeth whitening or dental implant promotion that you want customers to know right now and this feature lets you communicate that directly to your customers.

To keep track of how your business listing is performing, Google includes a personalised dashboard within Google Places that shows data about how many times people have found your business on Google, what keywords they used to find it and even what areas people have travelled from to visit your business. With the dashboard, you can see how your use of any of these new features affects interest in your business and make more informed decisions about how to be found on Google and interact with your customers.

Dental Design are pleased to offer a Google Places optimisation and management service to our Premier and Classic Plus clients – we will register, setup and list your practice details on the Google Places Directory and optimise the listing with geo-qualifier and services keywords in order to gain high rankings.
