What is Local SEO?

Each day millions of customers search on Google, Bing & Yahoo for local businesses that offer products and services they need. Statistics show that 87% of those customers will contact a local business within 24 hours of their search.

While traditional advertising still has it’s place it’s becoming just as important to make sure your business is on the internet and listed correctly.

Primary benefits our our Local SEO service include:

  • Your business will stand out in local search results
  • Your business will be listed correctly
  • Your business will be targeted to customers in your service area

What if My Business doesn't have a Website?

Local SEO works best if your business also has a website and a presence on social media. However, there are still plenty of benefits to be had for businesses that don’t. Imagine your business being listed above your competition with a correct business name, phone number and address. To a prospective customer it might make the difference between them calling your business or someone else’s.

Our Local SEO Process

Our Local SEO process is designed to get the results you want at an affordable price. We will look at your current listings, your local competition, how customers are finding businesses like yours and even optimize your website (if applicable). We will also submit your business and/or website to online local business directorys.

Local SEO Audit

The first step is see how your business and website are listed and their placement on the search engines. We also look for incorrect information such as address, phone number or business hours. Your social media presence and online reviews are also checked.

Competition and Keyword Analysis

It’s important to know how potential customers are looking for businesses like yours and who your online local competition is. We take the time to research both carefully so we can make your business stand out.

Optimize Your Website for Local SEO

Based on the previous two steps we may recommend some changes to your website. All of these changes may be done without a major website rebuild and most will be transparent to your website visitors. In Local SEO it’s very important for key information on your website to match the information the search engines have about your business.

Create or Correct Listings for Your Business

There are a vast number of online directories where your business may appear. We concentrate on the 50 most important ones. If your business is not listed on any of these directories we submit a request to have your business listed. If our research revealed any incorrect information we will work to have the incorrect information revised.
