Do you own a mental health practice?
If yes, then we can help you build your patient base. Not just that, but we can help you attract a steady stream of patients by using the latest SEO strategies for mental health businesses.
When people search for a mental health professional on Google, your website needs to show up on top of the search results. Your mental health practice will not show up in the search engines without proper search engine optimization.
You have to convince Google’s complex algorithms so that your website appears on top of the first page for keywords and search terms you are trying to rank for.
Roughly 77% of health care patients use the search engines to look for mental health providers before they schedule an appointment.
What’s INTERESTING is that 90% of the people who are searching on Google and other search engines never make it past the first page.
This means, that even if your website is ranking on the top of page two, it still is unlikely to be found.
Moreover, users finding you through organic search are likely to pick up the phone and give you a call. This means that if you are ranking well on Google for your potential search terms in the mental health field, you have a high chance of getting more leads and turning them into long-term patients.
So, how do you get to improve your search rankings in Google? At Destiny Marketing Solutions, we have been providing high-quality and reliable search engine optimization services for mental health professionals for years, and we can do the same for you. We know the ins and outs of technical and strategic search engine optimization techniques that will help you rank on page one of Google.
