Was one of your dental marketing resolutions for this year to write more blog posts for your practice? That is an EXCELLENT plan, not just to form a connection with your patients and establish yourself as the expert you are in their eyes, but it’s also really smart from an SEO standpoint.
A Brief Explanation of SEO
Ideally, you have some keywords that you are regularly using in your website copy and in any articles you publish on your website. As you continue to add blog posts and use these keywords, you’ll start to rank higher on Google whenever someone searches for them.
It isn’t a one and done thing, it takes regular posting to really make a difference. So, don’t give up if you don’t see results by February. Keep with it, posting at least once per month (but preferably twice or more) and you’ll see that your efforts will really pay off.
