There are hundreds of different websites for doctors to create a profile page so, how do you know where to start?
In our infographic below, 15 Online Profiles Every Doctor Should Have, outlines the top sites to focus on first before expanding your reach over time.
Focusing on these 15 profile sites will get you on your way to attracting patients and managing your online reputation:
- Google My Business (Number One! Start here first.)
- US News Health
Every profile page allows you to enter your name, address, and phone number (NAP) which is a key part of your healthcare listings management as well.
For example, a patient may search online for “dermatologist” on Google but, because the search is so broad, your website may not appear at the top of search listings. Instead, since most searches are local, online profiles on sites like Healthgrades, Yelp and Google My Business will show up. With a complete profile on these sites you have instantly increased your chances of acquiring a new patient.
Use our infographic as a guide to get started but remember, this is only the start.
Just because there is a large number of sites available doesn’t mean that you can ignore them. They post your information whether you have edited it or not so it is to your benefit to claim all your profiles. Consistent information across all of these sites will help your website rank higher in search results.
