Local Search

Google’s local search and other online directories are designed to help people find local businesses and services, and there are a host of reasons you want to be optimized for local search. Patients who are seeking dental services will often use an online map or another online directory. Searches for terms such as “find a dentist near me” are getting more popular. Searches on phones also use online directories to deliver location-based results. Further, Google’s general search will frequently list a directory such as Yelp at or near the top of results. And finally, when people use general search, at the top of the page they will usually find a small map with three dental practices listed in what is called the local three-pack. Our local search services are designed to target all of these results.

Local Search and Reputation Management Services

Google local search algorithm is separate from their basic general search algorithm and requires a separate strategy.
  • Our Local Search Service Has Two Goals

    First, we aim to boost your rankings in all of the maps search engines with the goal of getting you first page listings in Google Maps and other online directories. Second, we want to get you into the local three-pack of Google that shows up at the top of the search results page.

  • We Are on the Cutting Edge of Changes

    We are on the cutting edge of changes that affect maps rankings across the major search engines. A major part of our continuing education efforts is focused on local search, and the writers at Search Engine News have called us the leader in local search for the dental industry.

  • We Know Directories

    Our local search services start with placing and maintaining your listings in the big three directories (Google My Business, Yelp, and Bing), and go beyond this to include over 150 important online directories. When your listings are properly placed, corrected, optimized, and harmonized, this boosts your online exposure.

  • We Manage Your Reputation

    With Local Search we also provide reputation management services, which include helping you generate positive reviews, monitoring your online reviews, and helping you respond to any negative ones.
