Does My Website Need Local SEO?

Local SEO Strategy


There are a few key areas that needs to be focused on and optimised appropriately. You need to consider Google+ and your local business profile, on-site optimisation and semantic markup, citations and reviews.

Creating a local business profile on Google is a vital part of making local SEO and your business successful. If you don’t already have a Google profile, that should be the first step in the development of a local search strategy. Local business pages generally display business reviews, address, telephone number and hours of operation. The more information you provide, the easier it will be for local searchers to find what they are looking for.

Building your Local Authority


Local business citations are a significant factor in local SEO ranking and are viewed similar to how backlinks in traditional SEO are viewed. These local business citations show that the company is an established place of business.

As with conventional SEO, it is important to optimise your landing pages for local key words. You also need to include your business name, targeted local keywords and the business location. This means that meta title, meta description, opening H1, image alt tags and on-page copy are included. Just like traditional SEO, your pages need to be optimised naturally and not overloaded with your keywords. Just promote your business naturally.

Local Research


Your websites visibility depends on how Search Engines understand and interpret what your site and business is about.

SEO is not a one off activity, it takes time for search engines to understand changes made to a website, equally it takes time to achieve your objectives.

Want to Know More About Local SEO?


Ranking in Google is dependent on what: Google feels that a user is looking for, not how many times you have stuffed a phrase onto a page. In an age where Google returns results based upon a persons query and his location, local businesses have a real opportunity to position their businesses locally.
