Quality Content Generation/Authorship Consistent Blogging!
Rule #1 with blogging, ensure there’s a real author behind the blog post, not just anyone in the business, but someone with knowledge and expertise in the field who can provide accurate and engaging information. Google loves the idea of Authorship.

3) Shoot videos that introduce your team, tour your facility or answer frequently asked questions.
4) Put together helpful resource guides on topics related to your services.
5) Offer free e-books or whitepapers on health and wellness topics.
By creating engaging content, you’ll be able to attract new patients, build trust and grow your online presence.
Content Syndication/Distribution PR, Help a Reporter Out (HARO) & Source Bottle
PR is where you send out press releases about your business or articles you’ve written to media outlets in the hopes that they’ll pick up the story and publish it on their website.
This tactic is also known as Content syndication which is the process of republishing your content on other websites. Have you ever seen an article on news.com.au it says original source nytimes.com – this is content syndication and it’s a great way to get your content in front of a new audience and build links back to your website.
There are a few different ways to syndicate your content. One way is to use a PR agency, but if you’re looking to do it on the cheap then use Help a Reporter Out (HARO) and Source Bottle.
This process is extremely time consuming but if you can get your content syndicated on high profile websites, it will be worth the effort.
The goal of content syndication is to get your content in front of a new audience and build links back to your website.
HARO is a service that connects journalists with sources for stories they’re working on. If you see a journalist looking for sources on a topic that you’re an expert in, then you can pitch them your story idea.
Source Bottle is similar to HARO but it’s Australian based.
Both Source Bottle and HARO are great ways to get your content in front of new eyes, but it’s also important to make sure that you’re syndicating high-quality content. Otherwise, you could end up doing more harm than good.
Authoritative Signal Generation (not just link building) GMB Posts, Social Media, Gravatar Setup & Web 2.0 Properties
One of the most important ranking factors for local SEO is what’s called an authoritative signal. This is basically a vote of confidence from Google that says your website is a reliable source of information.
There are a few different ways to generate authoritative signals:
1) GMB Posts – Google My Business allows you to post updates about your business which is a great way to show Google that your business is active and relevant.
2) Social Media – Sharing your content on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn is a great way to generate authoritative signals.
3) Gravatar Setup – As we mentioned before, setting up an account with Gravatar.com and using the same email address for your blog comments will help Google to associate your website with your Google+ account.
4) Web 2.0 Properties – Creating accounts on high-quality web 2.0 properties like WordPress.com, Tumblr.com and Medium.com is a great way to generate authoritative signals.
5) By creating content that is interesting and informative, you’re more likely to get people to link to it, which will also generate authoritative signals.
All of these tactics are important for generating authoritative signals, but it’s important not to focus on just one or two of them.
By diversifying the ways in which you generate authoritative signals, you’ll be more likely to rank higher in the search engines and drive traffic to your website.
