Search Engine Optimization

Attract More Patients With Dental SEO

We identify and expertly use dental SEO strategies that allow your dental website and practice to rise to the top of the search results page when potential patients use Google, Safari, Bing, and other search engines to find a new dentist. We focus on ethical dental Search Engine Optimization techniques that give you long-term results instead of so-called “black hat” techniques that can cause short-term gain, but have potential long-term consequences. GDW does it the right way for our clients. No exceptions.

Cost Effective Results

"I need a dentist near me"

Dollar for dollar, dental SEO is second only to word of mouth advertising as far as affordable, positive ROI based dental marketing goes. Most campaigns run in the hundreds of dollars per month vs more expensive advertising that can easily run in the thousands per month, with no way to track full effectiveness. At GDW, we offer custom dental SEO packages that are tailored to your specific market size and your practice needs, allowing you to stretch your dollar farther and with greater impact.

Play The Long Game With Dental SEO

Dental Search Engine Optimization campaigns require an upfront investment of time and effort, yet their impact endures far beyond that of many other advertising methods. Think of it like lifting weights - the more consistently you lift, the stronger your muscles get. Those muscles won’t just go away overnight, even if you skip a few days at the gym. The same holds true with dental SEO. Put the time in to your investment to see long-term results, and stay ahead of other competitors in your local market. Grow through SEO.

What Does Your Dental SEO Campaign Include?

The primary goal of every dental SEO campaign is to increase your practice's visibility to potential patients on Google and other search engines. This increased visibility will eventually lead to more business for your practice as more potential patients visit your website, read about your services, and ultimately book an appointment!

During the launch of your SEO campaign, our team will work with you to identify a list of keywords (search terms) that are relevant to your market and the services your dental practice would like to target. These keywords will vary depending on your market size and the unique goals of your dental practice, but some common examples are “dentist near me” and “dentist location.” Our team will implement a variety of onsite SEO tactics (such as keywords, fresh content, updated titles and headlines, inbound linking, etc) and offsite SEO tactics (link building, google posts to Google Business Profile, citation and listing management, etc) to make your practice stand out in search results over other practices in your market. We will also send you monthly reports that detail your website progress, local ranking changes, and traffic and conversion metrics. All this and more can be discussed with your Marketing Coach to further understand where your investment being used.

It Starts With Your Website

Onsite SEO refers to all of the actions we can take directly on your dental website to improve rankings for your target keywords and services. As Google and other search engines change their ranking algorithms, we will make relevant updates to your website to keep it up to date. Each month, our SEO team will work with our copywriting team to create and update dental website content that targets specific keywords within your campaign. We will also focus on optimizing your metadata, alt text, internal link structure, and your site speed to help your website stand out to search engines, while ultimately ranking higher in search results.

Control Important Business Listings Across The Web

Your offsite SEO includes all of the actions we take outside of your website to improve its rankings. Our team uses several listing management techniques to claim and optimize all of your business listings across the web. We make regular updates to your Google My Business page to make it stand out in the map results for searches like “dentist near me.” We will also focus on link building. Obtaining relevant backlinks from other websites to yours is a key component of your overall SEO campaign. Your offsite SEO will also include a monthly analysis of the competitors in your market. Keeping tabs on your competition will allow our SEO team to find more opportunities to improve your website's visibility.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does ongoing Dental SEO benefit my practice?
Your initial SEO setup will give you a certain level of success – we design it that way! Our skilled team will use their knowledge combined with the most up-to-date search engine information and algorithms to provide you with the highest level of initial success possible. Proper SEO takes time. As you have probably noticed, the Internet changes constantly. New sites are added and optimized, and new dentists move into your area. They are all vying for the coveted number one search slot for the most popular searches in your area. How will you monitor and keep up with these changes?
By opting for ongoing SEO services, we can help reevaluate your local market, demographics, and most effective keywords, helping you rise to the top among your competitors. By collecting data for your area, evaluating your options, and making regular adjustments, we can keep you climbing the search engine ladder and on top of the requirements of Google and other search engines so that your SEO never becomes obsolete. When you opt for ongoing SEO services, you have a dedicated team of experts working on your side to ensure that your ideal patient is able to find you in the complex web of Internet searches.
Can you give me an "SEO Guarantee"?

No, and to be perfectly frank, any ethical online marketing firm should be telling you the same thing. Google is a third party that no one, including us, has direct control over, and thus a guarantee is impossible. Some companies will make the guarantee another way. They’ll let you off the hook for payment unless they “get you on the first page.” Some SEO companies will technically win their part of the deal by getting on the first page for non-competitive terms with little visitor traffic, instead of the higher traffic search terms that would actually lead to you getting lots of new patients

We believe in aligning your economic interests with ours. We have a long track record and as many referrals as you’d like to call so you can be sure we’re going to do the work the way we describe. And we have no contracts, so if we don’t perform, you can dump us. But beware of companies offering you “guarantees.” Chances are that you’re either being overcharged to account for this or what they are willing to guarantee may not get you many new patients – which is the whole point of your website and SEO, right?
