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 Perth, ‘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.
What is Local SEO, exactly?
Like on page SEO, local SEO is all about making it easy for people in your area to find your business, products or services online. But the focus here is to optimize your online presence for geotargeted searches – searches that reference a location. Listings on search tools such as Google Maps, Yahoo! Local and Bing Local, Yelp, Insider Pages, and Urban Spoon need to be optimized so that locals find your business fast.
How do I know if Local SEO makes sense for my business?
Do you offer products or services that local customers want or need? Do you have at least one store that caters to walk-in customers? Are local clients searching for and finding you online? If your answer to any of these is “Yes” or “I don’t know” – Search Consulting can help.
