6 SEO steps for Vet Clinics

Table of Contents

We’re a website development company whose professional SEO services can help to boost your search engine rankings and ultimately help you to gain more clients. Most veterinary practices have websites and online marketing, but many neglect search engine optimization (SEO). Yes, websites should be well designed, full of information, and easy to navigate, but SEO for vet practices is essential if you want to improve your visibility online so that potential clients can find you.

With our 6 Steps for Vet Practices to increase online visibility, we can help to bring in more traffic to your website, which ultimately converts to more clients through your door. Let’s take a look at them.

1:     Good Web Design

When it comes to your business, a sleek, professional web design is no longer a luxury – it’s a necessity. Studies have shown that over 50% of customers judge a company based on its website. If your website isn’t user-friendly and looks outdated or amateurish, you could be losing potential customers without even knowing it.

In today’s digital age, hiring a professional web design agency is one of the best investments you can make for your business. We can transform a lackluster site so that it is welcoming and comforting while portraying the core values of your business as compassionate, caring, and professional.

SME Digital is a professional web design company that knows how to make your website look good and will work with you to ensure that the finished product is a responsive website that meets your needs, as well as your clients’. We can create a website that is:

·  easy to update and maintain—saving you time and money in the long run and

·  optimised for veterinary SEO with SEO content that targets the keywords that your potential customers are searching for online.

2:     Working Alongside You

We’re a web agency that works with companies to demonstrate their strengths to potential clients. A website is your digital business card and lets you share your story to attract new clients.

Working closely with you is key to making an online strategy work. We’ve worked with numerous clients in different industries to create digital strategies tailor-made for their needs. Our process starts with discovery. We take the time to learn about your organisation, your goals, and your audience. Then we design a strategy specifically for your needs.

3:     Comprehensive Keyword Research

Keyword research is a critical component of any successful online marketing campaign. It is the step taken to determine which search terms or phrases are important to your customers, which terms you should target, and when/where you should be using those terms.

The competition for ranking high in Google’s search results is fierce.

As a huge part of SEO, content strategy is also important. It’s quite simple: by knowing which keywords your target audience is searching for, you can target your content to better reach them. We provide thorough and comprehensive research to find the exact terms people are searching for in order to gain an edge over your competitors.

4:     Content Planning and Backlinking Strategy

In the past, people used to think that having good content on your website was enough, and that was that. That is no longer the case. Search engines are becoming more intelligent, and content is no longer enough.

For a website to be deemed relevant by search engines, it needs to have high levels of inbound links from authoritative websites. These links are known as backlinks and are a part of a 6-12 month strategy included in the professional SEO services we offer.

5:     Pay-per-Click (PPC)/Google Ads

Google ads are essential in driving more traffic and sales to your business. They offer a cost-effective, targeted way to bring visitors to your site and are a way of increasing traffic quickly while waiting for our organic search strategy to come to fruition. For some customers we run the ad campaigns along with SEO to get the maximum traffic to the website which in turn brings in more customers to the clinic.

6:     eCommerce

An e commerce platform is a potential way of creating revenue for veterinary practices. Your website can be a resource for pet care, helping clients find answers to their questions, read about pet care tips, and even book an appointment online. It can also be an online veterinary shop where you can order pet accessories, pet toys,  or even pet apparel.
