And we did it!
Online Medical Journey: Being by the patient’s side in every micro-moment
Applying an innovative SEO strategy that focused on awareness & consideration of the medical customer-funnel, instead of the lower, more competitive levels we managed to surpass our initial goals.

SEO was the most important channel of continuous traffic inflow and call leads, 61.1% of whom resulted from the organic SERPs.
Be Present | The key to success
The audience of health field has unique features. It is an audience interested in highly sensitive issues and long form, detailed online journey. This includes the initial search of side effects, the comparison of possible therapies and medical centers as well as questions in forums and review check or equivalent cases.
The users that make these types of searches belong to the upper levels of the customer funnel.
Through a strong organic presence in the first stages of searching online and well-documented content we would effortlessly lead the user to the next lead-heavy stages of the funnel.
Matching user intent & landing page experience
By using SEM we gathered significant and actionable insights on user-intent (long-tail search terms for services) and brand perception of the clinic (branded search terms report, “mcmc reviews”).
According to this data it was obvious that the vast majority of the people interested in medical services of the clinic search for the side effects and the ways of diagnosis. Similarly, in cosmetic services the users focus on results, on the exact application of the service, on reviews and costs.
With these in mind we proceeded in a detailed keyword mapping of the pages so that every webpage reflected and satisfied every user intent.
We created and optimized webpages of medical services focusing on the side effects and the diagnosis of the condition. We enriched pages with thin content that didn’t provide the user with meaningful and useful information and pages that had a high bounce rate and low Session duration.
With the use of Enterprise SEO tools like SearchMetrics we received important information regarding the content’s target audience and optimization.
At the same time we limited keyword stuffing of the main keyword based on quantitative factors of competitor analysis. Thus, boosting the quality of the content in technical terms.
With the readjustment of the content we maximized organic visibility of MC Medical Center by taking advantage of LSI keywords and targeting topics instead of sole keywords in every page (semantic SEO).
Internal Linking Optimization
After analyzing and pinpointing the strongest pages in terms of citation flow, we kept on by optimizing internal linking.
We turned the pages with high authority into information hubs with a powerful internal linking structure, always having the user experience in mind. The idea was to improve the user experience and effortlessly lead them to the next level of the customer funnel until they reach the last one, that is, contacting via phone or the online forms.
