How 5 Therapists Got their Business to Rank On Page One of Google

You cannot have a bad website in today's market. In fact, even a great website doesn't matter if no one visits the site. And once you get people to the site, you don't want people to just look around. So here in lies the question: How do I get my site on page one of Google search results for search terms that convert? Let's take a look at five therapy practices that did exactly that.

All five of the practices below either had no website or had an underperforming website before they became a VirtuOps customer. All five had similar issues:

  1. Maintaining their website was too hard and too time consuming. They didn't have the time (or desire) to learn the skills required to properly maintain a website efficiently.

  2. They didn't have the money to pay a designer for every little update.

  3. The designers they did use were difficult or impossible to get a hold of for even the simplest of updates.

  4. The therapists all had highly specialized training and advanced degrees. Using web designers who didn't understand their domain of expertise led to unusuable text that made content creation even more difficult.

For each of the customers below, VirtuOps and the VirtuOps Digital Assistant (VDA) added the following value:

  1. Made content generation as easy as filling out a form or just pointing and clicking. One of the keys to ranking well on Google is a steady stream of quality content. The VDA is especially well suited for curated content (instead of just dropping a link in the site, curating content is a better way to show your authority which Google likes.)

  2. Added in self-service tools while maintaining security. Employees can update their own bios, pictures, and even add their own blogs. This takes a massive time burden off of the practice owner and enables several authors to contribute quality site content.

  3. Some of the sites incorporated professional directories. This helped drive referral revenue and also helped add more quality content and key words as other professionals added their businesses to the site. This also created an easy conversation to have with other professionals around reciprocal links, or link building, which Google also likes.

Here are the stories of the five customers that used the VirtuOps Digital Assistant to get on page one for highly lucrative search terms.

Alliance Speech and Language used the VirtuOps Digital Assistant (VDA) profusely. They mastered content curation using the VDA which helped get them to page one of Google rather quickly (a few months). This website features dozens of quality curated resources. Each resource only took a minute or two to add using the VDA vs. half an hour doing it by hand. The advantage of using the VDA here was that Alliance Speech and Language could add descriptions and key insights that explained why the resource was important to their site visitors AND also describe their authority on the subject. Alliance also made heavy use of the professional directory which helped not only drive thousands of dollars of referral revenue but also helped capture more key words through helpful content.

Rodriguez Speech and Myofunctional Therapy not only uses the VDA for resources, testimonials and other content management, but they also have a portal that they use heavily for their exercises. This is part of the VDA and also uses VirtuOps Pilot workflows to manage exercise content for patients. Patients visit the portal on a regular basis which means the site gets a large number of direct website visits. These visit are also 'high quality' visits because users spend a lot of time on the portal pages. According to SEMRush, direct website visits and time on site are the top two factors in how a page ranks on Google.
