SEO – Be Found Easily

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Search engine optimisation (SEO) is the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via “natural” search results, not paid for advertising. There are just a few simple things that you need to do to achieve this.

Usually, the earlier a site is presented in the search results, or the higher it “ranks,” the more searchers will visit that site.

As an Internet marketing strategy, SEO considers how search engines work and what people search for. Optimising a therapy website primarily involves editing its content and HTML coding, to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines.

So what do I do?

We give you all the information you need to do this yourself, we can do it for you if you prefer, or you can pass it on to your web developer. However there are a few main aspects of SEO that are critical to any therapy website in fact any website that wants to rank well on the search engines.

  1. Good content i.e. relevant content about the subject that your keywords relate to.
  2. Therapy related (preferably) inbound links to your site.
  3. Easy on the eye i.e. not too cluttered and don’t go mad on colours and fonts.
  4. Easy to navigate with inter-site links.
  5. Headings, titles and meta descriptions, make sure they contain your keywords.


The above can be done by our team but that costs you money and is something that, if you know your therapy and what it means,you should be more than capable of doing yourself. Below is an explanation of what they are.

We believe in you making your mind up based on the evidence. So below is a few of the websites we supply SEO services to. Search on Google for yourself and make up your own mind.

Good relevant content – What do we mean?

By good quality, relevant content. We mean original written content in your own words explaining exactly what your therapy and all the aspects of it and how it can benefit a prospective client. If you do this yourself all of your skills and passions can come through and the prospective client can start to build a relationship with you. The more you relate to the prospective client the more likely they are to become a real client. The words that you write must include the key words that you want Google to return your website to in response to a search.

For example say you run an acupuncture clinic in Birmingham. If you wanted to be on the first page of Google on the search term (keyword phrase) “acupuncture in Birmingham”. In your webpage you might use phrases like “We have been practising acupuncture in Birmingham for 3 years” and “We have been using acupuncture in Birmingham to treat issues like x, y and z”. These keyword insertions need to be natural and relevant to the page subject. At Therapy Marketing we can help you by identifying keyword phrases that are worth targeting to give you the maximum amount of traffic.

Inbound links from quality sites

Any website that wants to rank well needs inbound links from quality sites. The better the site the higher the value of the link. These links can be achieved easily but it takes effort. All you have to do is find discussion groups, blogs, professional associations and forums that are related to your therapy and start to comment on the discussions. When you start to comment and add value and content to the discussion you are usually allowed to add a link to your website in your signature. At Therapy Marketing we can help you by identifying which sites it is worth you targeting to get the most from the links.
