The Nuances of Medical & Pharma SEO.


Google pays closer attention to healthcare and medical websites where incorrect information could harm an individual. Google introduced an algorithm update to more effectively measure the Expertise, Authority, and Trustworthiness (E-A-T) of websites that impact someone’s health, safety, or financial stability, known as Your Money or Your Life (YMYL) sites.

When Google’s algorithms detect that a user’s query relates to a “YMYL” topic, they will give more weight in their ranking systems to factors like trying to measure the authoritativeness, expertise, or trustworthiness of the pages that they are presenting in the search results.

Pharmaceutical, life sciences and medical websites fall within the “YMYL” category so you will need to demonstrate that your site adheres to these stricter standards and sends a signal of trustworthiness and safety.

Content & Compliance

Creating content for medical and pharmaceutical websites is often more challenging as we have to consider who the content is aimed at (i.e. patients or HCPs) and make sure it complies with the regulations for promoting medicines and devices.

High quality content creation shows Google you are a subject matter expert in your field, and this enables you to rank for extra keywords and it also helps to drive backlinks and social shares, which helps you to build authority.

Therefore, creating content that is both compliant and also sends the right signals to Google that you’re a subject matter expert requires specialist medical copywriting skills. 

By researching the online landscape we’ll identify what content your target audience is looking for, linking to, and sharing.  We’ll then work with you to develop a compliant content creation plan that will define what new content we should be creating, publishing on your site, and syndicating externally to help build both relevance and reputation.
