    A: Google makes 500-700+ changes to its algorithm EACH YEAR. To keep up, regular, ongoing updates are necessary to keep your site’s SEO and technology up to date, relevant, and ready to rank.

    Additionally, patients searching for a dentist may land on one of your local directories BEFORE your website – so we want to ensure the information they find is accurate and represents your brand. The work of managing listings is ongoing because directories are constantly updating what can be added to your business listing. In some cases, they revert back to old, outdated, or incorrect information, so we monitor and maintain these to ensure your online brand is current, consistent, and correct.
