Potential dieters are hunting the Internet for your services everyday. If the content of your website is not optimized to rank highly in search engine search results, it will be as though your website (and therefore your clinic) doesn’t exist. Rank high = potential dieters finding your website. Rank low = potential dieters finding your competitors website.
Q - I already have a website, my dieters find my website all the time and my website isn’t on the first page. This doesn’t sound so important to me.
A - Your dieters are returning customers. They know how to find your website and therefore, aren’t “searching” for your clinic’s services. Search engine optimization assists with attracting new, or unique visitors, to your website. These are potential dieters desperate to find your services, or those of your competitors. If they find your competitor’s website first...you will have just lost a new dieter.
