Local SEO Strategy

As an award-winning provider general SEO services, we look for every way to help move your site to the top of search rankings. For local businesses, a focused effort toward excellent local SEO is crucial.

As a small business looking to make a big impact in the digital space, there are a few relatively basic steps you can take to augment your brand’s presence across search engine platforms, notably Google, given that they own over 90% of the global search market.

When trying to get your business ranked higher and perform better on Google’s search engine results pages (SERPs), it’s important to understand how Google “scores” your site’s pages. 

Google’s machine learning technologies, also commonly referred to as spiders/bots, index the pages of every website by “crawling” them. The bots look for key phrases to understand what your site is all about. This helps Google categorize your site, and direct end-users to correct places. Google is regularly making updates to its algorithm, so it’s important to understand the advancements in the search engine community to improve your site’s placements.

Local SEO Ranking Factors

On-Page Optimization

Basic website optimization involves targeting heavily-searched keywords with pages that give users the information they want. The process isn’t too different from general SEO. We use SEO tools to find out what terms are searched most, we look at high-ranking competitors to see what performs well currently, and we outline pages that satisfy the keywords. Webpages have a few important places to place keyword-driven content:

  • Meta Title

  • Meta Description

  • Heading Tags (H1, H2, H3, etc.)

  • Internal Links

  • Image Alt Tags

  • Page URL

Google My Business

You’ve probably seen Google My Business profiles appear next to organic results when searching on Google, whether you search for a particular business or something for general like “restaurants near me.” Google aims to put all pertinent information about a business in front of users. To make the most of this opportunity, you should create a Google My Business profile with thorough, accurate information about your business. This sends a strong signal to Google, putting you in the thick of the SEO game.

Citations and Backlinks

Backlinks are links across the internet that direct users to your website. Google will place more value on a site with a number of quality backlinks, considering those pages to be the most relevant and trusted. 

In local SEO terms, citations are listings of your business on other websites, apps, and social media platforms. Yelp, Foursquare, and Angie’s List are three examples, allowing helping users find information and reviews of local businesses. It’s important to submit accurate business information, giving you more exposure and sending more SEO signals to Google. Your local area likely has smaller websites helping people find businesses, another opportunity to submit your business’ information.

Benefits of a Great Local SEO Strategy

Basic website optimization involves targeting heavily-searched keywords with pages that give users the information they want. The process isn’t too different from general SEO. We use SEO tools to find out what terms are searched most, we look at high-ranking competitors to see what performs well currently, and we outline pages that satisfy the keywords. Webpages have a few important places to place keyword-driven content:

Local Map Pack

When someone searches for a local business, what do they see? They almost always see Google’s Local Map Pack, commonly referred to as “The Big 3,” the three most relevant, local businesses that appear in a box just below the paid advertisements of the search engine results page.

Google Maps Results

The Google Maps app has become more commonly used as a mini search engine itself. When people are on the go and they search Google Maps for something locally, Google’s ranking algorithm again comes into play. For retail and food businesses, appearing on Google Maps is particularly beneficial.

Location Targeting

It’s important to point out that the search results displayed by Google are not the same for everyone who searches a particular keyword. Your physical location and your personal search history will affect the rankings. You may be surprised to find that, especially in densely populated cities, search results change a lot every few blocks!
