Search engine optimisation or SEO

Search engine optimisation or SEO is one of the key components of a strong digital marketing campaign. SEO is designed to bring your website to the attention of prospective patients who are already interested in the treatments and procedures that you are able to offer. SEO is carried out by implementing certain techniques on your website and other digital content such as your social media account to help boost your ranking in Google search results lists. The higher position that you achieve on search results lists for dental queries in your area the greater chance there is of attracting website traffic.

There are three different types of SEO. Technical SEO is concerned with giving visitors to your website a good user experience by effectively managing behind the scenes of the website. It includes making sure that your website is optimised for all devices especially mobile phones and it also makes sure that your website is working effectively at all times.

On page SEO includes optimising the content of the website making sure it is interesting, relevant and up to date at all times. Off page SEO is the third category of dental SEO which is concerned with the actions that you carry out outside of your website but helps impact your position in the search results list. It tells Google what other people think about your website, helping to build trust and credibility and therefore boosting your ranking on the search results page.
