SEO or search engine optimization is an online marketing strategy that has become a sine-qua-none for any business, big or small, with a virtual or web-based presence. Uploading a well-designed site that is user-friendly across all handheld or desktop devices is the primary criterion for SEO. Having original and meaningful content punctuated with relevant keywords, and maintaining NAP consistency are some other vital prerequisites that sites to fulfill so as to rank on the ‘first search engine results page’.
If you are dentist with an online presence, you’d as well have to cater to the above preconditions for making your site SEO-compatible. Almost all large, medium-sized, and small firms that rely heavily on the online medium for revenues take advantage of the search engine optimization strategy. As a dentist, if you wish to augment more traffic to your site and capitalize on the same, you should opt for a dental SEO package from a certified agency.
Opt for a SEO plan from an approved agency offering web marketing services
Bear in mind that competition for garnering a larger slice of the market pie has steadily increased since the advent of the internet. That holds for every sector and stream of the economy, including the healthcare sector. It could be that most of your closest competitors are already making the most of SEO through pay-per-click campaigns and Google AdWords for amplifying their site’s visibility across all automated social media platforms.
So, as far as you are concerned, that you should choose an effective SEO package from an authorized company specializing in internet marketing services, is a foregone conclusion. Subscribing to a dental SEO plan will go a long way in bolstering the online presence of your dental practice. Before you decide on what sort of search engine optimization plan would be suitable for you, you’ll stand yourself in good stead if you are aware of some facts about web-oriented marketing and promotions.
Majority of those who surf the net via Google, Bing or Yahoo (which is nearly 85%) focus on the first ‘results page’ and do not even bother to click on the subsequent pages. Therefore, if you wish to attract niche traffic to your site, you should take all necessary measures to make your site claim a first page ranking- the higher, the better. To put it more succinctly, you should at least aim at claiming a position which is within the first 20 search results or else your chances of attracting potential traffic are very slim.
The nature of SEO is unmistakably organic as the methodology (read search engine algorithms) used for securing a high rank or placement in the SERPs is natural. Promoting your dental website using web-based marketing techniques is not only cost effective but the impacts and results thereof stay effective for a long time period. If Statistical Research Inc. is to be believed, almost 57% of surfers browse the net.
Give a security ring to your site with HTTPS and SSL
While you are in the process of deciding on the SEO package that will be appropriate for your dental portal, take some time out to crosscheck as to how secure your site is. In this context, it would not be out of place to mention that sometime back in 2014, Google, the most widely used search engine, declared that all websites stationed on its servers should be HTTPS encrypted. The acronym HTTPS stands for ‘hypertext transfer protocol secure’ and this encryption ensures all communications or data that is exchanged between the sites and the Google servers are immune to tampering by unethical hackers.
So, if you wish your site to be even considered for ranking by Google, you must make your website a HTTPS site-its URL must bear the prefix HTTPS. Secondly, if you want to secure the data that your site shares and exchanges with the search engine’s servers, you should purchase a SSL (secure system lock) certificate.
