Local SEO Services
Is it important for you to reach customers in your area? As local SEO continues to grow, consumers almost solely rely on the web to find local businesses. A few years ago we used the Yellow Pages to find local businesses, services, and products. Today, we look for local resources using our computers, phones and GPS devices. And we do it a lot: 86% of people look up the location of a business on Google Maps.
The internet has changed everything when it comes to shopping and finding local services. But most companies haven’t kept up. Information is often incomplete or worse, inaccurate. Without a well-executed local SEO program, businesses don’t always show up in local search query results. That’s not good for business or customers. Even worse, some businesses still don’t have a Google My Business set up and optimized.
As you can see below, we are ranking in Google Maps for ‘SEO Consultant’, ‘SEO Company’, ‘SEO Service’ as well as many other competitive keywords. We have set up and optimised our Google My Business Listing to show up ahead of our competitors to our local customers.
As an online search marketer, your options for local search programs include:
Organic Results – Designing your content marketing and web page information to appear high for local searches such as “Dentist Perth” or “Perth Barber”. The methodology is similar to general organic search engine optimisation services.
Google My Business – Setting up and optimizing a Google My Business account to effectively target local customers in your area. This also includes linking your GMB account to your website and ensuring the information is consistent.
Local Citations – Identifying high-authority business directories and submitting your business information on them. The more places search engines see your brand, the more likely they are to trust your website and your services.
