I'm here to help your business become more visible online.
Local SEO (Search Engine Optimization), also referred to as Local Search Marketing, is basically just what the name says: it's optimizing your presence online locally, so when someone in your area types in a search query for something to do with the products or services you offer, your business shows up, hopefully on the first page. Getting visible on the web locally!
Depending on what the search phrase is, and what type of business you have, for local businesses this means you optimally want to show up in the "3 Pack", the Google Local My Business listings, often called Google Maps.
You also want to show up in the organic search results, which are usually below the 3 pack Maps listings.
Tips On Local Search Engine Optimization
One thing to keep in mind is that SEO can take time. Especially if you are in a competitive business niche or large city. For instance, if you have a roofing company in large city like Seattle, it will take some work to get in the Google 3 pack. But there are ways to get online traffic to your website even for a tough niche like that.
- One way is to go after "specialty" niches within a niche. So in the roofing example, while Seattle roofing will take you, or the local SEO company that you hire, some time and hard work, going after "long-tail" keyword phrases, like Seattle metal roofing, or commercial flat roofs, to name a few off the top of my head, may be easier targets.
- And over time, especially if you've hired a local SEO expert, going after those long-tails keywords will build up some authority for your site, and make it more reasonable to go after the main search terms. Of course, you may be surprised at how much traffic, and sales, showing up for many different "long-tail" keyword phrases will bring your business!
- One way that Local Web Zap is going after local long-tail phrases, is using video marketing to target multiple phrases, and link back to our sites in the video descriptions (and a few other things to maximize the power of video for local). This is proving to build up that authority that we want for our sites.
