Why Does Local SEO Matter?
Are you frustrated because you don’t appear more prominently in local online search results? It can be even more frustrating when you see lower quality dentists appear instead of you. You may not realize the importance of local SEO for your dental practice and why local directory and citation management is so important.
Search engines are all about confidence. They want to ensure the results they are displaying to users are accurate and relevant. It is critical that the search engines understand exactly who you are, what you do, and where you are located. Local directories and citation sites help search engines verify your dental practice’s information.
This helps your dental practice establish trust and authority, and helps give you increased rank in local online search results.DIAGNOSE YOUR DENTAL PRACTICE ONLINE - CLICK HERE TO USE OUR FREE LISTING SCAN
What is Local SEO?
Local SEO is fueled by local directory sites that specialize in indexing dental practices based on practice area categories and geography. Some of the most common sites include Google Local, Yelp, Yahoo!, Bing, Yellow Pages, Manta, etc.
Why are these sites important for local SEO?
Today, over 60% of internet searches come from mobile devices. Due to this trend, search engines are changing the way they are displaying results, putting more emphasis on providing “geo-targeted” local results.
