In the constantly evolving world of Internet marketing, the only thing you can be sure of is that you can never be sure what Google is looking for on a daily basis as part of its search algorithm. That being said, one thing that Google indexes all the time and which they regard as very important are Internet or business directories. Having consistent and correct information about your practice/business, and preventing incorrect information from being incorporated into your directories is of the utmost importance.
There are over seventy Internet directories that list health care professionals. Some of them are very familiar like Facebook, Yelp, Google and Yahoo while others are much less well known. Business directories include the information such as "Office Name", "Address", "Phone #", "Web Address" and "Office Hours" to name a few. Google wants all directories to have the exact same information.
Even the smallest discrepancies will cause business directory listing errors. Google is looking for consistent information about the practice/business on all areas of the Internet and will drop you in search if you have errors. The problem is that directories add listing information robotically and don’t care if the information is correct or if it matches other directories.
In order to correct business listing or directory errors and maintain them in their correct form it is incumbent upon your Internet marketing provider to:
It is almost impossible for a health professional and/or their staff to make all of these corrections on their own since directories must be monitored on a continuous basis.
