In Depth: Biotech SEO

Whether trying to raise capital, find the right talent or sell products online, most biotech, biotechnology and life science companies own and operate a website. For many of these biotech companies, that’s where the digital marketing ends — but in fact that’s where they should begin. Biotech SEO is an under appreciated discipline.

When a digital agency turns over the keys to your shiny new website — that’s when the adventure begins. After training the internal team on how to update the pages on the site, you’ll be ready for the traffic and business to start rolling in… or will you be? That’s where optimizing your website for search engines (and for biotech and life sciences that pretty much means Google for SEO) become paramount.

Beyond creating great content for your website in the first place, you must provide stewardship to that content so that Google can properly understand, analyze and most importantly rank your content for appropriate search queries. Most biotech, biomedical and life science companies leave this huge SEO opportunity unexplored.

VEGF or Real Estate: Biotech SEO

Even the most basic search engine optimization techniques can help these websites tremendously. At least 1/2 of the life science companies from a list of nearly 100 I was given had the exact same HTML Title tag keyword on their home page. It didn’t matter if were selling murine VEGF Knockouts, the next blockbuster drug or lab equipment — they all described themselves to Google in the same manner. You might think they used the word ‘biotech’, ‘biotechnology’ or ‘Science’ to describe themselves on the home page. Nope, they told Google by way of their SEO tags that they were about ‘Home’. By having that word in the the #1 most important spot for search engines, these sites have no presence on search engines, and thus, no rankings. That’s where Biotech SEO comes in…

Public Companies: Biotech SEO


20% of Public Biotech Companies sampled from the NASDAQ biotechnology index have ‘Home’ in their HTML Title.

There’s all sorts of issues that plague modern day life science, medical and biotech companies with regard to their performance in search engines.  It has to do with not prioritizing search engine optimizing (SEO) for their biotech website.  Versus their competitor who has already done the work, they are potentially not even competing for the business online.  That is easily solved by contacting to get your biotech SEO program underway!
