Building The Perfect Dental Website

More and more patients are going online to source healthcare services. It’s often the first point of contact a potential patient will have with you. In fact, 75% of Europeans think that the Internet is a good way of finding out more about health, so it’s important to keep your website up to date.

The success of your site can be gauged by how quickly clients can access the information they desire. This is really key because 47% of users expect a web page to load in two seconds or less. Every site will have Google Analytics, which you can use to analyse activity on your site such as bounce rates and the amount of time people spend on each page.

Bounce rates measure the number of people who leave your site after viewing a single page. As a rule of thumb, a bounce rate of over 35% is concerning, and if it’s over 50% it needs to be addressed urgently. It’s also important to measure the time people spend on your site. If the average amount of time someone spends on your site it less than two minutes, chances are they are not engaged or interested in the content you have up there.
