FAQ About Hospital SEO Services

What is SEO and why is it important for hospitals?

When people look for information about healthcare providers, they go to Google first. To make sure that your hospital’s web pages show up in search for the audiences you serve, you need to invest resources toward search engine optimization (SEO).

SEO is a constantly evolving discipline—a set of web best practices that help hospitals position their websites in a way that search engines love. Of course, Google and other search engines run on an algorithm that is updated regularly. To keep up, hospitals can rely on SEO agencies like Cardinal that help make sure that their most important web pages continue to rank.

How do you measure success for hospital SEO projects?

Our goal is to put in place SEO strategies that get the right eyes on your website over the long term. Our team of SEO experts will monitor page rankings, cost per lead, featured snippets, organic search traffic, and other important key performance indicators for SEO. We’ll also track how this traffic is converting into things like form-fills, appointments, and other important outcomes that hospitals hope to drive through their websites.

How soon can we expect results?

SEO does not happen overnight, especially for a market as saturated as healthcare. What we do know is that any SEO agency promising quick results is misleading you. The timeline for SEO success will vary depending on your hospital’s current website, your specific needs, budget, and organizational objectives.

Marketing’s Role at Each Step of the Patient Experience

At its core, healthcare is about taking care of the patient. While long ago a patient’s experience likely involved a telephone and an in-person appointment, things are far different nowadays. Most patients begin their journey online. Some of those journeys end online, too. In a recent consumer healthcare survey, 81% of patients reported that they read reviews about doctors even with a referral, and 63% choose their providers based on a strong online presence. When it’s time to make an appointment, nearly 50% prefer to make their request through some digital channel, further underscoring the significant shift in preference toward digital experiences.
