Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions are important on a website because they accomplish two goals: patient information and keyword saturation. Some potential patients will read the FAQs to find answers to their questions or learn more about your practice. By choosing questions that include services or technology that you want to highlight, TNT can integrate more keywords into your site, thus making it more search engine friendly.

The following FAQs are samples, and we encourage you to develop unique questions to replace or supplement these. We will customize answers based on your interview and preferences, so generic answers are not listed here. If you have a gold or silver platform, please choose 5 to 10 FAQs from this list, or come up with more personalized questions, and submit them to the copy director to include on your new website.
