Frequently Asked Questions About Microsites
Question: Do microsites help with SEO?
Answer: Yes. For example, if you offer dental implants in your community and someone searches for those services, Google may be more likely to direct a user to a practice with a site dedicated solely to those services. A microsite also gives you additional opportunities to have content crawled and indexed by Google’s bots, as well as a chance to offer more organic links and keywords. Since many links will direct people to your main site, both websites will enjoy better rankings.
Question: Do microsites cover a single service?
Answer: You can cover a single service or a group of related services. For example, you may have a site dedicated to dental implants, a single service. You may also have a site dedicated to cosmetic dentistry, a group of services. Both options involve focusing on a specific area of your expertise, one that may not receive enough focus on your main website.
Question: Does the site need to be responsive as well?
Question: If I already have these services mentioned on my main site, do I still need an additional one?
Answer: Yes. Your main site may not be able to dedicate enough pages or copy to a service or procedure you excel at. In addition, if you want to direct more people seeking those services to your practice, a microsite is essential.
