Did you know that it takes a person 9 seconds to type in a Google search query? Google produces results in ~300 milliseconds. (Talk about a super highway!) Then, the user – your potential patient – chooses the website he likes best in about 15 seconds.
These numbers are based on Google’s extensive research.
Google is the search engine of choice. It truly dominates, accounting for 65% of searches in America. Bing and Yahoo! were neck-in-neck until September of this year, when the two merged. Now Yahoo! gets its search results from Bing. Even with this, Google is the clear leader.
Obviously, your dental website must rank well on Google if Internet marketing is going to be profitable for you.
