Local Business SEO Challenges:

UC Dental’s original website was based on outdated technology with no to very little content, including missing tags, meta data and keywords. This leads to inadequate indexing and ranking of keywords, resulting in low or even no SERP (Search Engine Result Pages). Content is what the Internet principle is based on, especially in the eyes of Google, which happens to be over 78% of the search market share. Having very little content, missing meta-data and faulty website structure, website presence was almost non-existent.

Internet Marketing Objectives:

Our objectives were clear from the onset. Because UC Dental had a very good physical proximity to a large population, we felt there was a lot of opportunity to increase exposure through website marketing and presence by applying a number of local Internet marketing strategies. To make their website presence more effective, we suggested a total revamp of their website from the ground up which included a comprehensive local SEO plan:

Therefore, the following web strategies were taken:

1. Redesign their website using a Content Management System (CMS) platform – either Joomla or WordPress.

2. Keyword research based on location and services they provide.

4. Create a comprehensive local SEO plan that concentrated on good site structure (navigation, meta tags, sitemaps, etc.), good content, and back linking, with the ultimate objective to increase traffic from targeted local prospective clients from organic search results.

Joomla 1.5 is an excellent CMS with superior site structure making it a more viable solution for search engine crawling and indexing.
