Local SEO (Search Engine Optimization) pertains to local businesses getting top listings involving certain locations and demographics. Local businesses such as hotels, restaurants, automotive repair, roofing, spas and, of course, realtors want to ultimately come up on the first page when a potential customer is looking for their related service in their area. This can make a HUGE difference in leads and sales!
Also vital is that your business website be fully mobile friendly since most all local searches are done on a mobile device such as a smartphone. As well, being mobile responsive is an important factor in Google’s ranking algorithm.
Google My Business (GMB)
A GMB listing is vital for all local-based businesses. GMB listings are like the image shown to the right. If you don’t have one yet we can set one up for you.
Google Maps listings are like what you see in the image below. Having your website show up in these listings is also a vital component of local SEO.
