Medical SEO Examples

Common question asked by doctors and practice managers “For my new medical website, how long will it take to start seeing results”. 

Use Case 1:  New website, new URL – with no previous history.

We will divide medical practices website into three broad areas: 

1) Low competition – will start seeing results in first 2 to 3 months.
2) Medium competition – will start seeing results in first 3 to 7 months.
3) High competition – will start seeing results in first 6 or more months.

Use Case 2: Existing website, existing URL – with previous history. We will divide medical practices website has been online for at least 1 year, with some useful (non-plagiarized content) into three broad areas: 

1) Low competition – will start seeing results in first 1 to 2 months.
2) Medium competition – will start seeing results in first 1 to 3 months.
3) High competition – will start seeing results in first 2 to 4 months.

Every medical practice is different, so there is no tried and true answer to this question that will apply to every single location. Generally, we see results from our SEO work begin to appear within 4 to 12 months. Many factors can determine the time it takes for results. Your organic competition plays a significant role in this time span.

Additional factors include:

  • The physical location of your practice
