How Dental SEO and Online Reviews Work Together

Illustration depicting online reviews and digital marketing for dentists from WEO MediaAt WEO Media, we work hard to get you new patients. Part of that work is Dental SEO and Online Reputation Management.

What is Dental SEO?

SEO is an acronym for Search Engine Optimization. We can modify your online search presence to help you rank better on search engines. To get more new patients to your dental practice you need to be found where people are looking, and currently those places are search engines like Google, Bing, and DuckDuckGo.

When someone searches for a dentist near them on a search engine the results at the top of search get more clicks than those farther down, to get your website to the top of search we do Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

Dental search engine optimization involves making changes to your website to make it more attractive to search engines to increase the odds of your website showing up at the top of search. A more specialized version of SEO for small businesses is Local SEO which focuses on the attributes associated with local business searches. These attributes focus on online map searches, business directories, and geolocation.

Ranking in Google Maps

Part of Local SEO for Dentists is showing up in various map systems like Google Maps, Bing Maps, Apple Maps, and Mapquest. The ranking on these maps works differently from the general search engines. They often consider the location of the searcher, if they have a listing in the associated business directory, and what their rating is in such a directory.

Additionally, Google takes into account the ranking of your website on the general search engine. Most businesses already have a listing on maps and cannot move closer or farther from the user. This leaves the main factors of your map ranking:

•  Organic Website Rank
•  Directory Listing Optimization
•  Listing Rating and Reviews

Your listing’s rating is determined by reviews. This includes number of reviews, the quality of the reviews (ie. who reviewed you) and whether the review includes important keywords, and the average rating of those reviews. This has become one of the biggest factors of where you show up on maps.

How Online Reviews Improve SEO

Getting new reviews regularly is hard, which is why not everyone has many good reviews. You can spend money to optimize your listings, optimize your website, and add multimedia to both, but you cannot buy reviews (especially Google reviews). That’s what elevates reviews in their importance for search rankings.

In addition, Google and other search engines know that consumers rely heavily on reading reviews before making decisions, such as choosing a dentist. That’s why online reputation management is important.
