Your clinic cannot show up in the local map pack without a Google My Business (GMB) listing.
When People Want To Refer A Dentist…
They either ask their family or friends for recommendations or search for options on Google
Even when a recommendation is made, people still typically search on Google to get the clinic’s phone number, address, or website address.
This is why you need a GMB listing
It’s the most prominent and free way to capture attention on Google
In addition to finding, you through your GMB listing, it also gives people a place to check out your reviews and get more reassurance that you’re worth contacting and getting treated with.
Most dental clinics know this is a critical step to optimizing their local SEO and have already claimed theirs, but if not, you’ll want to immediately search for your clinic’s name on Google and claim it.
