SEO for Doctors

In today’s competitive online market it is imperative to be on top of your game. Every professional including doctors should have a website by now and offer ways to connect with their clientele. Understanding SEO best practices and marketing strategies can be somewhat confusing but it is well worth the effort.

In other words, it is far more valuable to an SEO campaign to use the term “rheumatology specialist inNew Jersey” than to just use the term “arthritis.” Besides just using geo specific content on a website, there are other local SEO strategies which can target persons within a specific region. The site’sMeta information should include geo tags as well. And it is also important to identify the office in local search engine’s directories. The point is to get the doctor’s office to show up in local search results. (more…)

Content is king

Content

Content may indeed be king, but not all content is created equal. There is a line of thinking that says the more content you publish the more organic traffic that can be generated.

Producing content that is not of high quality can have a very negative effect on a marketing or SEO campaign. Actually, bad content can cost you big time.

And how do you know if the content on your site is bad or not? There are several ways to describe poorly published. This is an important step to every individual involved in the marketing process from the SEO expert to the business or website owner. Here are some characteristics of bad content.
