As you know, SEO is essential to any online business and the foundation to getting your practice seen by online users, without having SEO in your marketing strategy your business could be and will be missing out on new prospects. You also want to make sure you have implemented local SEO to your best ability to ensure users that are local to you but unaware you exist get hooked by your visibility.

Here are some quick tips to secure your local SEO:

This is also known as citation building and included in our SEO monthly marketing packages found here.

Citation building will improve exposure in your local SEO by consistently promoting the following 3 factors of your practice using online directories such as Yell etc:

Create blogs with relevant and local news and users that are interested in these events and searching online for more information will be more likely see you as one of the results and could end up clicking on your link for more information and in time, maybe even turn into a new patient. This may not happen instantly but it provides the opportunity which is giving yourself more chance of increasing your visibility.
