Getting listed in SEO directories is an important part of any business’ digital marketing strategy, and dentists are no exception. These directories allow dentists to increase their visibility and attract more patients, as well as gain credibility by appearing on reputable listings.
SEO directory listings can help improve the local search ranking for your dental practice. Search engines like Google take into account the number of times a website is linked from other websites when determining its ranking, so the more listings you have, the better chance you will be ranked higher in relevant searches. Additionally, SEO directory listings can provide backlinks that drive targeted traffic to your website or blog which can result in more patient inquiries.
With that in mind, we’ve listed some of the most popular SEO directories dentists can use to improve their SEO visibility and increase leads to their website.
There are not many free SEO directories that are designed specifically for dental websites, however Dentisoft is one of the few remaining options.
Dentisoft has a suite of tools to help dental offices increase patient engagement and drive new business. Their free service includes an office listing on DentistDirectory.com, a two-week trial of Dentisoft Office Cloud Pro, a button for your website which patients can click and go right to your very own appointment page, and a patient portal page for all your patients who sign up. Patients can use the service to research dental procedures, request or schedule appointments, view and pay bills, post reviews about their visit, review their records and treatment plans, communicate securely with offices, as well as receive appointment reminders, confirmations & email marketing.
While we can’t recommend Dentisoft’s full services from a SEO perspective, getting listed on dentistdirectory.com can increase exposure for your dental business. When signing up to be listed on DentistDirectory.com, be aware that they will try to upsell you on other services that you may not be interested in.
Opencare offers a listing service for dentists that start with signing up and creating a profile. This allows dentists to highlight what makes their practice unique, making it easier for patients to choose the right provider.
Through their marketing expertise, Opencare then works to attract patients from high-intent places who are motivated and guided through choosing the best practice for their needs. Once matched, dentists can easily communicate with patients via Opencare’s portal to schedule an appointment time. The payment process is also designed to be beneficial for both parties – dentists only need to pay after they have seen the patient.
What makes Opencare different is their focus on ensuring that the patients they send are deeply invested in their oral wellness, making it easier for practices to deliver the best outcomes.
Vitals.com is an online directory that provides information on healthcare providers to help patients make informed decisions about their medical care.
Vitals allows dentists to list their practices in their directory, which requires providing basic information about your practice, including your name, address, phone number, and website. You will also be asked to provide details about your education and professional experience, as well as any specialties or procedures you offer.
After you submit your information, you will need to verify your email address to confirm your account. Vitals.com may also require additional verification, such as a phone call or documentation of your license.
Vitals does not disclose the costs involved for being listed in their directory. However if you are a dentist and are looking for new online directories, Vitals is at least worth checking out.
Top Rated Dentists
Top Rated Dentists lists dentists from around the country and ranks them on a scale of 1-10 in a certain geographic area. These rankings are not necessarily based on quality of service, price, or other factors. Rather, they are likely based on information provided to Top Rated Dentists by the dental practices themselves.
Additionally, a fee is required in order for a dental practice to appear on the Top Rated Dentists list. They do not display their pricing online, but you can contact them directly for more information.
Because Top Rated Dentists appears well for many local search queries, getting your dental practice listed on their website may result in increased visibility (and leads) for your practice.
