Local Lists Can Deliver 60% of Your Visitors

Deliver Local Traffic

Being found locally for keywords related to your practice, needs to be done differently to your general search engine optimisation.

While it is not possible for all doctors to rank in the top 10 of search results, often your local listings will help you achieve this.

It Helps Build Traffic

Creating as many citations as possible is best practice, and when every channel is fully populated, the combined exposure delivers more traffic, improved patient engagement and helps build organic search popularity for your practice.

Below are 30 Channels to consider:

 

Social Channels

Social channels used for content:

Facebook Page (not a personal profile)

LinkedIn Profile and/or LinkedIn Company Pages

Google+ (page for Practice)

Twitter - if content is likely to be posted

Social & Listing Channels

As part of your optimisation strategy we review and/or setup a number of off-site channels. The benefits of establishing or claiming these extra channels are:

  • Ensure consistent and accurate information is reflected across the web

  • Increased exposure or ‘shelf space’ on search engine results pages (SERPS)

  • Build brand credibility using content distribution via appropriate channels

  • Showcase expertise with visual content (images, graphics, video and presentations)

Ignoring these channels can be a mistake.

While you may not be in favour of all these online channels, stats show they can drive more local traffic for patients seeking better understanding of the treatment options.
