Keeping your information consistent across 100’s of online directories can be a full time job. Having accurate information ensures patients all receive the same business name, phone, and address for your practice. This instills trust, helps bring patients into your office, and is crucial to dental SEO.
How are your local SEO efforts performing?
Is your practice’s information correct across all listings?
NAP data includes information for your practice’s Name, Address, and Phone number. If you have not maintained your NAP data, spontaneously generated duplicate and inaccurate listings likely exist.
Conflicting information impacts your practice’s visibility and can frustrate patients trying to find you. Correcting these issues can substantially improve local results and drive significantly more traffic to your site.
