How Healthcare SEO Works – A Detailed Overview

Google records over 2 million searches daily, and many of those are healthcare and medical searches. On average, 95% of all web traffic on Google goes to the results on the first page, so the success of your website hinges on it, making it not only the first page but the first five results. There is only one way to attempt that, and that is through SEO.

What is SEO?

Search engine optimization (SEO) is a significant part of digital marketing that influences your medical website’s online presence. SEO focuses on how you can optimize your site to favor the results gotten on search engines such as Bing and Google. The higher you rank on the organic results listings, the more likely you are to get clicks.

How SEO Works – Some SEO Tips

Google holds the highest percentage of all searches done online, and they have a detailed list of criteria that they use to determine the ranking on their site. But there are also many other criteria that Google looks at that may not be in your hands. This brings us to the two areas where you need SEO:

On-page and off-page SEO

On-page SEO refers to the tactics you can employ on your site to make it more engaging to your site visitors. Your on-page SEO hinges on the following factors:


Keywords are targeted words or phrases that come up when a query is made. You have to include them in your title and all over your post. You can use a keyword generator to generate quality keywords that will improve your ranking. Avoid cramming the keywords haphazardly in your post, though; they have to blend in with the rest of the content.


When someone makes a query, for example, “easy fluffy pancake recipe,” Google will only direct them to posts that fulfill that query perfectly. So, let’s discuss how SEO works. Well, if you plan on keeping the visitor interested, your pancake recipe has to be the fluffiest and easiest recipe; otherwise, you will lose their interest. You also need to post as often as possible, preferably with new or refreshed content to keep your website current.

Site structure

A well-outlined website is more likely to get dedicated visitors than a cluttered one. You have to focus on factors like the design, security, user-friendliness, page speed, and mobile adaptability of your website. 

Off-Page SEO

Off-page SEO, on the other hand, deals with criteria that you don’t have much control over. Google has a formula it uses to calculate rankings, and it tends to favor certain types of sites. Your only chance at standing out is to build your website up to meet those requirements.

For example, a registered and legitimate brand inspires trust and will be the first choice, and your domain and page authority is what makes you trustworthy to Google. It would help if you also improve your link building, lower your bounce rate, and increase your social media influence. Your country and location also play a role in your ranking.

SEO is something you need if you want to run a profitable online business. Without SEO, you will be lost amongst the many other healthcare businesses, with no way to stand out. Anybody can do SEO, but the best healthcare SEO agency is one that knows and truly understands healthcare.
