Why your local business needs SEO

The days of thumbing through local directories are long gone.  These days, when people want to find a local business, 86% ask Google.

But if your local business has a website without any sort of SEO or even a Google My Business listing, the chances of people being able to find you are close to zero.

If your website isn’t showing on Google’s results page, you can bet your competitors’ will be. And they’ll be taking all the business for themselves.

Local SEO helps make your business more visible to those searching in your geographic area.

Could your business benefit from local SEO?

If most of your customers come from your local area, the answer is a resounding YES!

Did you know that 92% of searchers choose businesses on the first page of local search results — and up to 33% of those clicks go to businesses listed in the map pack?

The goal of local SEO is to get your website listed on that first page of search results and get it featured in the map pack.

Because this is where you’ll be most visible to your customers and most likely to get those all-important clicks.

Going back to basics

It’s amazing how many websites don’t include a business address or mention the local area they serve.

Details like these are important for local SEO and help to show potential customers that your business is genuine.

Google My Business

A Google My Business listing is free and can do wonders for your online visibility and credibility. But many businesses either don’t know about it, or don’t use their listing to its full potential.  Simply put, a local SEO strategy is crucial for your business.

Your Google My Business profile is like a mini website. And, just like your website, it should be search-engine-friendly and updated regularly. This is one of the services I offer as part of my local SEO package.

Local citations

A local citation is any online mention of your local business name and contact details. These citations appear on websites, apps, business directories and social media. Important for local SEO, they’re instrumental in helping people find your business online — and they should all be accurate and consistent.

I’ll start with a review of your existing citations and make sure they’re all correct. From there, I can then create more citations to improve your online presence.

Local link building

Local links are part of the local SEO strategy too and will help to make your website more relevant within your locality where they’ll reach a more specific and targeted audience.

Using local link building outreach, I will get you those all-important links.
