Local SEO Services
Get Local Leads From Your Website And Become Your Town's Superhero
No One Uses The YellowPages Anymore
Remember the good ol’ days when in order to be on the top of the list you just had to name your business “AAAA Plumbing and Heating”. Everything in the phone book was alphabetical so you just had to have one more “A” than the next guy.
That’s not how search engines work.
Now you have to worry about how to set up your website so google will put you at the top of the list. As if you have time to do all the things needed for THAT!
Today you need to compete online by using a local seo strategy that attracts customers to your business, and not you competition down the street.
Local SEO Services: What Is Local SEO?
Local Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a marketing strategy that is designed for local businesses to help them reach more customers and generate more revenue by targeting leads in your city or geographic area.
For instance a plumber with a single location in Poughkeepsie will serve customers in a radius around their location - some distance that he and his crew can drive to and service on location. That plumber does not need to attract customers in Phoenix - since he can’t service that far away.
Are You a "Local Business"?
If the target audience for your products or services are located within a specific geographic area, then you need to focus on Local SEO Services. What does that mean? It means if your customers physically come to you, or you physically go to them, you are a “local business” because you need to target a specific geographic area - or multiple areas if you have more than one location.
More and more people are searching for services "near me" or in a specific area. Google and other search engines are now smart enough to know when someone searches for a plumber or a dentist, they probably want one close by. Local SEO helps to make sure they find YOU.
How Does Local SEO Work?
Local SEO Services are a number of techniques used to improve your website traffic, by telling the search engines what your website is about, where you are located, and what services or products you offer. When done correctly and over time, the “reputation” of your website, in the eyes of the search engines, improves, and your site’s rankings move higher.
Some of the techniques and tools we use for Local SEO are:
- Google My Business Optimization
- Keyword Research
- Competitor Research
- Citations and Link Building
- and more (there's always more!)
Is Local SEO Magic or Illegal?
No. SEO is not magic, and it is not against any rules when done properly. There are people out there that try some “black-hat” techniques, but those will always get you in trouble in the end. We stick with strictly “white-hat” techniques. These techniques rely on proper keyword usage, Google My Business Optimization, link building, content creation, directory/citation listings, and reputation management. An emphasis is put on great content that attracts the attention of search engines while providing the information your leads need to become customers.
Should I Be Doing Local SEO?
Local SEO Services, like all SEO, are designed to improve your search engine rankings. When your rankings improve, you will receive more website traffic, and when your website is set up to convert those visitors into clients - your business will experience growth.
You’ve surely done a search for a service or product in your local area, where you enter in the type of service as well as the name of the area to look just near where you are located. Local SEO Services will help your business have a better chance of appearing in your customers searches.
