What is Local SEO?

Local SEO is making it easy for web searchers to find local businesses when they look for a product/service near their location. People may use terms like ‘Product-Name near me’ or simply do a search on their device with location services (GPS) turned on.

Search engines like Google and Bing have a map pack feature that displays the top-ranked local businesses whenever consumers search for offerings. SEO Explode helps your business rank on that map pack so you can gain more customers.

There are several aspects that help websites rank on local map packs and a local SEO strategy is how you address them all. Things like your business’s distance from the searcher’s location, relevance to the keyword, overall web presence, etc. all matter to your local rankings.

Search Engines Killed The Phonebook and SEO For Local Search

When was the last time you picked up a phone book? Also, when was the last time you used your smartphone to search for something?

The latter question is what consumers use daily.  That’s why you need local SEO now more than ever. Location plays a big role in how people shop and local SEO is how you increase awareness, including sales when you have a physical location. Including if you’re strictly online.

The Internet is a goldmine because it presents the best opportunity to earn attention and win more business today. At SEO Explode, we take advantage of several factors with regard to your organization’s location to increase your position on the SERPs. The result is more business.

How SEO Explode Localizes Your Website

One of the biggest factors in local SEO is consistency. Specifically, your name, address (city, state/province, country, etc.) and phone number must be consistent throughout the entire web. That is a challenging thing for plenty of enterprises because the Internet is so massive.

Then there are other aspects like having location-specific content pages for every business location and more. SEO Explode ensures that your name, address, and phone numbers are consistent throughout the entire web, including on your website.

  • Google alone processes over 5.5 billion searches per day.

Conversion or sales rates from local SEO are much higher than all other advertising methods. That means your competitors are likely investing in local SEO services so it would be foolish not to do the same.

How We Approach Local SEO Services For Businesses

You want your business on the local map packs because most users stop there and never scroll down to view other companies. Fortunately, SEO Explode is your solution to this debacle. We look at the following areas during our process.

1. Local SEO Audit

The first thing we do is to audit your online presence or situation. We look at the big picture, ensuring that every aspect, even the smallest of details is analyzed. This helps us identify your business needs and formulate a plan of action.

2. Keyword Research

Using the right terms within your website helps bots or algorithms (a form of AI) determine relevance. Search engine algorithms are programmed to match up the searcher’s queries with the content on your pages among other things.

SEO Explode conducts keyword research to find out how people are searching for your products or services. Then we make sure those key terms are naturally present throughout your website. For example, a restaurant in New York will perform better on the SERPs if keywords like “restaurant in NY” are present on its homepage.

3. Local Content Strategy

Content is what powers local SEO marketing. That’s why our team will go to work on developing a robust local content strategy for your business. We strategically include content that’s relevant to your business and relate each publication to the target location.

For instance, one could publish social media posts about upcoming major local events or “evergreen” (content that’s always relevant) blog articles about their locality. These types of content establish trust with consumers and search engines.

Locals will likely trust your business because instead of only trying to sell products; you’re also being useful. Search engine algorithms will have less doubt about your company when evaluating it for local search positioning.

4. Review Existing Local Listings

You may already have your business listed locally on sites like Yelp, 411, and others. We review these listings for inconsistencies and ensure your description copies are of great quality. We’ll also create additional business listings on your behalf. This will help you rank higher on search engines and provide more places on the web for customers to find you.

5. Plan For Acquiring Reviews

Search engines place a huge emphasis on business reviews. This means companies who have good online reviews generally perform better than ones that do not. All reviews matter and can help your rankings on the SERPs but positive reviews are more impactful.

SEO Explode will design a plan for consistently collecting reviews from past clients/customers. That means all you have to do is keep your customers satisfied, occasionally ask them for feedback, and our systems handle the rest.

Organizations with the highest consumer ratings are almost always found at the top of local map packs.

6. Link Acquisition

Having links from other articles or websites that point to your site (backlinks) can improve your positions on the SERPs. Links from local online newspapers, magazines, blogs, etc. will improve local relevance.

The SEO Explode team knows how to build links that impact your local rankings in a positive way. We look at authority, associations, trust, and more before obtaining any backlink.

7. Social Media Optimization

Do you have social media channels? Social media is another place consumers go to find local businesses but also, having a good social presence is great for SEO.
We’ll ensure your social media profiles are optimized to give you a boost on the SERPs and increase incoming leads.

8. Repeat From Keyword Research

SEO is ever-changing like all things technology. In fact, Search engines make several adjustments to their algorithms daily and new keywords are discovered every day. So we never stop tweaking and improving according to the latest updates, including trends.
