Google Maps (formerly known as Google Local) should be an important marketing tool for every dentist. Listings are displayed near the top of Google’s search results, providing top exposure to the thousands of prospective new patients searching for dentists.
What is Google Maps?
Google Maps is an online service that helps users find local businesses, view maps and get driving directions. Google Maps is free to users and costs nothing for businesses, like dental practices, to be listed. When a search term like “Scottsdale Dentist” is placed into Google or Google Maps, 7 – 10 listings are produced and the locations identified with a red pin. Best of all, many times these search results are at the very top of Google!
