You started a veterinary care career because you wanted to work with and help animals — not sit around staring at an empty client roster, waiting for the phone to ring. Are you interested in achieving business goals such as bringing in new clients, expanding your veterinary services, increasing revenue, and experiencing long-term, sustainable business growth? Professional veterinarian search engine optimization for your veterinary clinic website is the best way to accomplish all of that and much more.
In days gone by when a pet owner needed to find a veterinary service, they would simply ask their friends and neighbors for recommendations, and just like that, veterinary practices would get a qualified lead for a new client. But now, that potential client turns to Google instead — and if your website doesn't appear high up on their search engine results page (SERP), they won't even know you exist.
Have you ever tried searching relevant keywords such as "veterinarian + your city," and then had to scroll and scroll some more to find a link to your veterinary website? Or much worse, do you have to click over to the second page of results to find your site's URL? That's not good. The facts are that about 70% of clicks go to the first five organic links on a SERP, while fewer than 1% of searchers will click a link on the second results page.
If you've noticed that your competitors appear higher than you in relevant search rankings, that's not a coincidence. It's because they are leveraging search engine optimization to their advantage and reaping the rewards. They are busy booking appointments for new clients while you miss out on your share of qualified leads from search engines. The good news is that Digital Shift has an SEO plan that will help you rise to the top of search engine rankings, increase your organic traffic, and bring in more revenue.
A cookie-cutter approach to search engine optimization will never be as effective as a customized plan tailored to meet the SEO goals of your unique veterinary hospital or practice. That's why Digital Shift works with you to make sure we fully understand your marketing goals and adapt our proven strategy to address your specific needs.
Digital Shift's customized digital marketing strategy for veterinary SEO includes:
You may be wondering if search engine optimization can really do much for a small, local business — after all, you want attention from local residents who need your services, not just random clicks from people around the world. That's where a local SEO campaign really shines.
Google and other search engines always try to show search users the most relevant results for their geographical location, but sometimes they need a little help. By finding out the exact keyword phrases that are being used by your target audience in your service area and optimizing your site for location keywords, we can ensure that your site will rank highly in local search results, getting you qualified leads from local people who need veterinary services right now and are ready to make an appointment.
Anyone can hide a pill in a slice of cheese and try to fool a dog into eating it, but advanced veterinary medicine requires a knowledgeable specialist. In the same sense, anyone can throw a couple keywords up on their website, but highly-effective veterinarian SEO services capable of producing real results require the help of an experienced SEO professional who knows their way around veterinary marketing.
Digital Shift is your marketing ally, and we have a solid digital marketing strategy that covers everything you need for effective vet SEO service. We are invested in the success of your business, because when you succeed, our SEO company does as well.

Absolutely! Google My Business (GMB) is the world's largest business citation, making it an invaluable tool for any service-based business.

Don't have time to tinker with your GMB listing on a daily basis? Digital Shift offers done-for-you Google My Business management. We'll take care of optimizing and regular posting, as well as responding to queries and reviews to encourage further engagement.

SEO is like rowing upstream — you need to keep paddling or you'll drift backwards. That's why search engine optimization tends to be a long-term game. You'll likely see noticeable results after about three to six months, but keep in mind that SEO results are cumulative, and your 12-month results will be a marked improvement over the six-month results. We'll keep working with you to increase your positive returns month over month and keep the revenue rolling in.
The increase in phone calls and revenue are two of the biggest things we look for, because those are probably why you're investing in SEO in the first place. We also monitor metrics such as Google Analytics, external links, bounce rate, click-through rate, keyword rankings, conversion rate, online visibility, and more to ensure we're on the right track.
Veterinary practices and animal hospitals that want to experience increased revenue and long-term business success need the help of a dedicated team of SEO professionals. You focus on pet care and veterinary medicine, and we'll take care of an optimized strategy that will improve your search rankings and get you noticed by potential customers.
