Nationally recognized dental Web site designer, Officite, expands online marketing solutions by offering Local Maps Optimization for dental practices
Online PR News – 17-March-2010 – – OAK BROOK, ILL. – Officite, leading provider of dental Web site design and integrated marketing services for medical professionals, has announced the release of its Local Maps Optimization Program. The new online search solution helps dentists drive more traffic to their Web site through the strategic positioning of their practice in the local maps results of Yahoo! and Google.
"In the past, Yellow Pages and local newspapers were the most effective methods for finding a local dentist, but today’s Internet savvy patients prefer online search capabilities to these traditional resources. Recognizing this shift in search behavior, Google and Yahoo! have developed their own online directories, making our Local Maps Optimization program one of the most effective means of exposure a practice can use to reach local patients," says Glenn Lombardi, President of Officite.
Local search experts at Officite have researched and studied the unique search engine criteria used to earn dental Web sites prominent positions on the maps of Google and Yahoo! Utilizing proven search strategies, Officite’s Local Maps Optimization program involves the development and optimization of the practice’s local directory profile, as well as the submission of their practice data to more than 80 of the leading Internet directories.
Additionally, Officite works with each dentist to enhance their practice reputation with a program to drive positive patient reviews. Patients will have the ability to submit encouraging feedback about their dentist on the practice’s local directory profile, an important factor for ranking high on the maps and maintaining a reputable image.
"Potential patients are searching online for local dental services, and dentists without a local presence are missing out on qualified patients who have abandoned their phone books for online local search directories," says Lombardi. "With Officite's Local Maps Optimization program, dentists can expect to earn exposure in the local results of Google and Yahoo!, and this translates to more clicks and new patients to their practice in the form of web site traffic, phone calls, e-mails and office visits."
In addition to the new local search program, Officite continues to offer additional site-enhancing solutions that include social media optimization, local pay-per-click advertising and search engine optimization - proven Internet marketing strategies that maximize the performance of a dental Web site.
