Search Engine Optimization


SEO means improving how your website ranks on the major search engines. The ranking of your website in search is critical to the success of your online patient outreach. MedForward's experts will work with you to build a comprehensive strategy to improve your SEO and attract patients.


We use a multi-tiered approach that adheres to the constantly evolving set of Google recommendations and web best practices. SEO begins with an initial review and optimization of your whole website. We submit your site to Google and Bing webmaster toolkits, write informative well-organized content, and build the site with an easy-to-navigate structure. After the initial process, we regularly review and update your site with custom content to ensure that your site remains a helpful resource to patients. SEO and content marketing go hand-in-hand.
