Do Dentists Really Need Mobile-Friendly Websites?

Often, we speak with dental professionals that doubt how much SEO and marketing can really help their practice grow. This is never more apparent than when discussing creating a mobile-friendly web design. Dentists, like any business nowadays, need to have websites easy to navigate on smartphones and tablets.

Mobile-First Indexing

Google announced that mobile-first indexing would begin last month. Which means Google is now opting to crawl and index the mobile version of a business’ website. To put it simply, this means that those without a responsive option will have difficulty obtaining a high ranking in a search for their services in the community if their competition does have a mobile-friendly option. The ability gain leads and attract new patients online can become more difficult as a result.

Better User Experience

Google is focused on user experience. When someone searches, they want to direct them to the options most likely to address their query. Since mobile-friendly designs are easier to read and navigate on a smartphone, they will be directing users to them. Studies show that people tend to abandon a non-mobile site in just a few seconds. Don’t let frustration drive away a potential lead! Make sure your website, in addition to having original content and organic SEO, is also easy to use on a smartphone.
