Dental Marketing Priority – Getting Listed on Google Maps
I’m sure that you’ve seen the Google Maps area when you’ve surfed for various products or services. More than likely you clicked on the one nearest where you were looking and who had the most positive reviews.
The Google Maps area gets more clicks than any other area of Google. It is imperative that your dental practice is listed on Google Maps (as close to the number one listing as possible) and this is why it is such an important part of your dental marketing plan.
Getting listed on the first page of the Google Maps for the most important and highly searched keywords for dentists comes down to four primary factors.
- Make sure that you’ve claimed and verified your Google My Business listing
- Ensure that you’ve optimized every aspect of your Google My Business listing for your local area plus your high value keywords
- Your Name, Address, and Phone Number (also called NAP) has to be consistent on your website, on your Google My Business listing as well as the other top local market directories.
- You need to have reviews (real ones) from your patients in your service area.
You’ll significantly improve your probability of ranking high on Google Maps in your market if you follow the steps above.
