Search engine optimization also referred to as SEO, is a marketing strategy used to help increase your online visibility. SEO is done organically, meaning it doesn’t require the help of paid advertisements. By combining technical and creative elements the main goal of SEO is to drive more traffic to your website.

This is why having the help of someone who understands SEO can be extremely beneficial. Luckily, Prescription PR offers SEO services to healthcare practices looking to get on top of their marketing game.
