Why SEO Marketing For Dentists is imperative:

Dentistry is an ever growing field that by no means is getting any easier to compete in. Dental practices are forming out of seemingly nowhere, resulting in significant competitive density in most all areas. There are many ways experts recommend one to enhance their online presence in order to accommodate these issues, such as google ads, flyers, or maybe even social media optimization in hopes for a quick inexpensive method to get ones dental practice to achieve its well deserved visibility, when in reality, these strategies render highly ineffective and the costs to actually upkeep the process not only ends up being as expensive, but yields little to no results on top of it.

SEO Marketing for Dentists The Dental Climb

To testify these bold claims, I shall present reputable studies to back it up.

  • A 2021 study by the Pew Research Center found that only 6% of Americans say they have ever seen a flyer for a local business and then visited that business as a result.
  • A 2022 study by Sprout Social found that the average click-through rate for social media posts is only 0.38%
  • A 2023 study by HubSpot found that 57% of marketers say that social media is not a very effective way to generate leads.

This should by no means give one a sense of discouragement. It is good to utilize a wide variety of multiple advertising approaches that may yield your practice patients, but to get a reliable inflow of potential patients visiting and calling your office to schedule an appointment, one must not only give off positive patient experience, but in order to acquire those patients: a positive user experience is the spearhead to all that comes next. How does a dentist give patients positive user experiences? Simple: ranking on the google search engine results page. Search engine rankings are paramount in consistent long term stability for your dental practice for years to come, and yes, while SEO Marketing For Dentists is by no means inexpensive, the ROI inflow end up being a positive one, and here at The Dental Climb, we provide three packages that are very affordable, so there is hope to find mostly affordable agencies without compromising on quality.

What are the four key SEO marketing strategies?

Before delving any deeper, I would like to first go over the four dental SEO strategies, and I will also be going over 10 dental SEO tips for more website traffic as subsets of the four key digital marketing tactics for dentists. SEO Marketing for dentists is time consuming and again, not inexpensive, but in ways it can be simplified, and here at The Dental Climb, we will be going over how exactly this is done and how yielding positive search results with these tactics is inevitable.

Our Four Focal SEO Strategies:

  • Content focus
  • Backlink outreach and optimization
  • Keyword optimization
  • Design focus

Now I know i know you are probably tired of hearing the cliche “content focus” statement that every single SEO uses as an imperative ranking factor, and yes it is true, but none of those web pages tell you how this is done effectively and most cohesively, which is where our agency comes in and what we will be going over in this blog post. You have also probably heard the good old tale of backlink acquisition and how important it is, and yes again this is true, but there are certain things one can say in their email to get the attention of those reputable agencies better than competitors, which is also what I shall be covering in those article, as I also will regarding the importance of a high quality 4K designed website and where to find keywords to create blogs or articles over. SEO Marketing For Dentists can be simplified in some aspects, so bear with me as I cover all of these strategies and tips that go along with it.

Keyword Optimization

Before anything, a blog idea must be brought to existence. And no, I do not mean a blog brought forth from your imagination. Those blogs will do you no good, as Google does not care what blogs you might like nor do they care what may be informative. You can have the greatest blog in the history of blogs and not even rank at all. Why is this one may ask? Simple: The blog you decided to expand upon is not searched on Googles search engine

So, how do we manage to find blogs that work? The answer: Paid site tools. While these site tools cost money, they are going to be the only way your dental offices website ranks on Googles search engine. So, what websites have these keywords? I go over these on every blog I make these days, which one could argue emphasizes how important these site tools are to almost every SEO in the industry:

  • Ahrefs
  • Moz
  • Semrush
  • Uber suggests

Yes, this seems complicated, but it isnt, especially after this Dental SEO Guide goes over all of the strategies I use to simplify finding the keywords. The Oral Health SEM Resources (search engine marketing) that I will be covering are vital to your success, while also rendering easily optimized once you have concluded this blog.

Ahrefs, Moz, Semrush, and Uber Suggest logos

Step 1: Go on Ahrefs Keyword Explorer

The Ahrefs keyword explorer is the first thing any beginner, and sometimes even experienced SEO should start their day traversing through. The reason for this is keyword explorer has hundreds upon hundreds of FAQs, main article (pages), and blog post ideas that are evergreen optimizable (will always rank on google. not seasonal content). To find these blogs, again, just click on keyword explorer type in whatever you want blog posts or article posts over such as “dental braces” or “affordable dental implants Miami”. You do not need to type in “dental braces questions” or “dental braces questions Dallas” if looking for FAQs regarding that, as the FAQs will appear with the blog suggestions anyways.

Now, once you have found the blog under ahrefs keyword explorer, you will start wanting to create the content, which I will go over how to do in a short while, but for now, I would also like to go over other ways to find blog keywords to optimize for your dental website.

Step 2: Go on SEMrush’s Topic research section

The beauty of optimizing two site tools is the versatility your arsenal bears, as some of dental SEOs best practices come from holistic approaches to the SEO scene. On SEMrush topic research, you find over a hundred blog or article ideas regarding the relevant keyword to your niche that you typed in. some of these can be blogs, others FAQs, and some both, its all a judgment call really. Nonetheless, the blogs are there at your disposal and can be optimized with content however you deem see fit. These SEO Marketing for dentist strategies start with the blog topics, and those blog topics are rooted from these two site tools in particular, and arguably the most important of them all as well. On SEMrush, on each box in the topic research section, you will see:

  • headline
  • question

The questions tend to usually be used for FAQs, for just recently Googles new algorithm limited the exposure of Google rich FAQ snippets from appearing on the SERP pages of websites that are not .gov or.edu related (for the most part), so when choosing a blog, stick to headlines primarily.

Step 3: Google SERPs Page

To those unfamiliar with the term, a Google SERPs page is just the results page showing all of the recommended results regarding the keyword you looked up on Google. For example, if you look up toothpaste, all that shows up is on the SERPs page. If you search in your services on these pages, you will find many blog topics to choose from, and I say blog due to location based services keywords tend to never be on the SERPs page ever. The blogs you can find on the SERPs page are on the grey widgets at the very bottom of the screen, the FAQ boxes, and the title tags of your competitors web page regarding the keyword.

Step 4: Site Explorer on Ahrefs Content Gap:

On Ahrefs, there is a little area called site explorer on the top header of your PC. Click on it, and you shall be directed to the site explorer section. While site explorer is best widely recognized as Digital Marketing data analysis tool for SEO, this misconception prevents one from maximizing site explorer to its highest potential. The best method on site explorer to find blog posts with is content gap. why? because content gap tells you what blogs your competitors rank for that you do not rank for. If your website is not uploaded on Google yet, it is still good to use this to see what keywords they are optimizing regardless. Keeping up with your competitors is in general a great strategy to have onus to see how much better you can make your blog

In conclusion to keyword research, there are four easy ways to optimize keyword research tools that this Dental SEO Guide goes over in great detail. Make sure to always and i mean always start here at keyword research, for the only way to know what content to add, you will need to have the keyword that governs the content creation process.

SEO Marketing For Dentists Content Focus Strategies:馃Ψ

In order to optimize your website to rank on the Google SERPs page, the content needs to be of high quality. While it is not necessarily easy to do this, it isn’t as difficult as one might think it is either. Once you have the keyword you want to rank for via keyword explorer tools at the ready, now it is time to get the adequate content for your page, but first, how do we do it? There are a few things one needs for this to work:

  1. SEMrush writing assistant tool
  2. Bard Ai for pictures
  3. Reference my written tactic (will get into that)
  4. SEMrush topic research

SEMrush Writing Assistant tool for Dental SEO

As you may have noticed in my dental SEO strategy, SEMrush plays a large role in SEO Marketing For Dentists due the tool being able to create your articles and blogs, as unlike ahrefs and many other paid site tools, they have tools that tell you what keywords you need in your article in order for it to rank on Google, the words being classified as “semantic keywords”. They are essentially words that have some synonymous relation to your main ranking keyword that bolster your article as a consequence of its relevancy. In SEMrush, these keywords are provided to you in the writing assistant tool. The process here is straight forward once the semantic keywords have been found. To find the semantic keywords, follow these steps:

SEMrush Writing Assistant tool

  1. Navigate through the header section provided at the left hand of the screen
  2. Click on “Content Marketing”
  3. Click on the writing assistant tool
  4. Once here, direct your attention to the right hand section of the screen where it says “SEO”. Under this, you should be able to see a pencil icon that you can click on
  5. Once you click on the pencil icon, type in the keyword you want your article or blog to rank for.
  6. Lastly, all of the semantic keywords should appear under “Recommended keywords”. Type your article now referencing the target and recommended keywords regarding the target keywords.

Doesn’t seem too difficult doesn’t it? As an experienced SEO, no, it’s second nature at this point. However, what if you are new to SEO? How will you be able to know what to include in a blog or article? Good question, and one that I shall be answering:

How to Structure your blog/article:

In order for SEO marketing for dentists to render a success, what I used to do, and still do on occasions to ensure this strategy works, is pull up a reference sheet. This reference sheet tells you what subtopics you will want in your blog or article. Subtopics are essentially things like, and I will be using my blog topics subtopics as reference: “Content focus”, “Site Explorer on ahrefs content gap”, and “Keyword optimization”. Every text that is larger than the ones in the body are subtopics, but the main ones in my article are the four strategies I will go over. So, how did i manage to find these subtopics?

blog post and an article sidebyside, with text boxes highlighting the SEO benefits of each

  1. The first things you want to address in every blog is what exactly it is. Before this, however, you will want to hook them into your read and agree with your point of view. How do you do this? Well, take this blog for example. My goal here is to tell you that dental SEO services are a necessity, correct? Yes, but before that, what did i do? I set up for it. I was claiming that the competition in the industry is so profound now that SEO is the only way, and I even brought in studies to testify my claim. A hook is vital to a blog or article, as without a hook, the reader does not conceptualize the importance of what you are trying to prove. You need a hook, then you need to define your ranking keyword, which I did after my hook as well. I did not write hundreds of words defining it, rather, just a few sentences to get my readers to understand what the goal of SEO is.
  2. After the hook and defining what, you will want to go over “why is this important” and “is there an easy method, or just any method to do this?”, which can also be considered the “reassurance” aspect of the blog. After my hook and defining what SEO marketing for dentist is, I went over its importance. I stated that no other marketing tactic works, and that the only dental SEO strategy that will help you achieve long term ROI and positive online reviews is SEO for dentists. Proceeding this, I covered the easy ways to do this/ effective ways to do whatever it is I am talking about, whether it be a guide that walks your audience through how to do something, or maybe it is you telling your potential dental patients how effective your services are, it doesn’t matter, for the structure remains the same.
  3. What is the process to all of this? I listed the easy/effective methods regarding my blog, but I had yet to go over the process in great detail until after listing all of the strategies involved in SEO marketing for dentists. As of right now during this portion of your read, I am covering the process, which can in many cases can make up the largest sum of your blog. Sometimes, you also may have a process that requires multiple steps that need to be explained in order for one to understand the process, which also needs to be covered here. In my blog, you are reading an extra step right now of the main process regarding the main process topic: “Content focus”.
  4. The process should be going over how it is done, in some cases, you will want to answer questions regarding the process, such as “how many times a day should it be done?”, or “how much of __ should be used” for which are some questions you think people might ask regarding the process that you should be addressing.
  5. Go on SEMrush Topic Research and get a handful of the FAQs provided that are relevant to your keyword. These are similar to step 4 above, but sometimes, these questions are not related to the process of whatever it is you are doing. Some you will find, however, can be used for the process, while others should be used as FAQs on the bottom of the post or page. In my blog, for example, I do not have many of these since my blog is already exceeding 3000 words, but most blogs would have FAQs at the bottom, and even FAQ processes embedded in toggles, or written out as subtopics.
  6. Lastly, asides from writing a conclusion paragraph (which I will not go over since it is just re stating your points”, you will want to promote your brand withing context of blog/article, which I have done many times throughout my article here. However many times you want to do it depends on the person and blog length. What I mean by this is state how your practice does this the best, or minimizes the pain completely regarding wisdom teeth or what have you. Blogs with a few hundred words I would recommend once or twice, and ones exceeding the thousands around three to four, maybe five but that is a huge maybe, for you do not want to overdo it and stuff your brand in their face 24/7. If it is a blog, they may not be interested in your services, rather, just want to be enlightened on a particular matter from some far distance region of the world not in close proximity to your practice.

Ending Content off with Bard Ai

Now, the hard part of content creation is over. However, SEO Marketing for dentists doesn’t render effective solely in regards to the amount of words in your article. The last thing one needs to do after writing the vocable content using my method or one of similar relevancy, is to go on Googles Bard Ai tool. Utilizing bard to write blogs and articles is a common phenomena that goes down in the industry more than you can imagine, and while yes it does work, it may not be as effective as writing yourself. The reason for this is you will more easily be able to incorporate all of the necessary semantic keywords into your article, and unlike most Ai tools, it is difficult for them to go over 1000 words for whatever reason. I won’t judge you if you do decide to write articles with Ai, however, it may not render to be as effective as it would be without Ai usage. However, this does not mean you should abolish Ai completely. At The Dental Climb, we use Ai to add small centered pictures on our blogs, which I am sure many of you have already noticed scattered around throughout. To do this, ask bard to “give me images regarding dental floss and its functions.” or something like that. Once the requirements stated, bard will present to you the image, which you can copy by dragging your cursor across the image. Then go on your article and find a space to include the image in and hit paste.

Bard AI tool

Content implementation is a arduous process that requires time and effort to incorporate, but as time goes on and you keep creating blogs, the process will become second nature and blogs will be finished in just a few days.

Web Design Focus and Backlink Outreach:

Design Focus Websites:

While not all successful dental or even SEO agencies have nice websites, that does not mean that if you do have a modernized high quality site that you will not influx more patients than your competitor. Having a high quality website in regards to its design is arguably just as important criterion in regards to SEO marketing for dentists as content would be. To stand out in the industry against established competitors, you will want to give off a strong first impression to clients that click on your web page. Not only this, but modernized websites tend to have stronger code that allow for Google crawler bots to traverse through your website at much faster rates.

HubSpot blog post titled The Importance of HighQuality Web Design: Everything You Need to Know

At The Dental Climb, our page builders are pristine and have yielded significant results for not just my dental SEO agency, but for many of my clients practices whose testimonials are found on my website. If you want to build a website yourself, however, i recommend starting with WordPress. There are many themes on WordPress that can stand our greatly amongst competitors, and the best part is is that you do not need to learn CSS or JavaScript.

Essentially, having a high quality website will put you over the top. If your practice is on page one with good reviews with a high quality website, the likelihood of one of your competitors in a similar ranking position with a lesser website getting more phone calls is slim to none.

Lastly, Backlink Focus

Some argue that backlinks are just as important as content, while others acclaim that backlinks are 1A to contents 1B, which in my experienced opinion is more accurate. Backlinks are vital to any websites success, as without backlinks, the likelihood of ranking is slim to none depending on the KD of your keyword. In order to obtain backlinks, one must inbound link outreach to reputable agencies that may or may not be willing to grant you a backlink. To find these agencies, go on:

Semrush Link Building Tool

  1. ahrefs site explorer and type your competitors URL in the site explorer search box, then click on backlinks. You will then find companies that you can outreach to via their website
  2. SEMrush Link building Tool. SEMrush’s link building tool is arguably the best and easiest to navigate in the industry, and justifiably so. How this process works is one must click on the link building option on the lefthand header section of the screen. Then, click on “My website” and then click on “go to prospects.” Here, you will find all domains whose backlinks are considered to be of similar relevancy to your niche, even if it isn’t necessarily a company of your niche. For example, If I, a dental SEO agency, get a backlink from a high DR (reputable) health care industry, then the backlink will help my websites traffic. Even though I do not specialize in providing health care to patients. I am still an agency under the umbrella if that makes sense.

Now, how do you obtain the backlinks from these companies? Simple: outreach

The backlink outreach strategy is very time consuming and requires a lot of effort on your end, but there are a few ways for your outreach email to render more effective than your competitors:

  1. Introduce yourself. In order for this to work, you want companies to feel that you put effort in writing this message, and being personal is one way to prove that you genuinely want to work with this company and prove to them that you and your company are reputable
  2. State that your company specializes in this this and this, and have already presented patients with effective services as testified from our reviews. Then state that in order for your practice to grow and to keep patients with effective services, you are requesting a backlink from their reputable company.
  3. Go over how hard and frequent you work to provide high end patient care to every patient that steps foot into your office, and how your patient care is at the quality it is at due to extensive schooling.
  4. Lastly, the send off. State that you hope this message finds you well, and that I am willing to cooperate by any means necessary in order to obtain a backlink, and then follow it with a “thank you for your time and have a good rest of your day.”
