A local SEO strategy is especially important for small, local businesses. When was the last time you opened up your Google app on your smartphone and searched for a business around your location? People are constantly making local searches, so it is important that you have a local SEO strategy for your business.
By developing your own local SEO strategy, your business will land on the first page of search results, helping you to effectively reach more people and optimize your website.
We’ll help you bring your business to the top of the search results with:
Local Business Listings
Keeping information up to date on your Google My Business page is crucial in order to provide correct information to your customers. When someone searches for your business on Google Maps, they are shown information from your Google My Business page, such as hours, reviews, directions, photos. We will claim your Google My Business page for each business location, and optimize it to drive more traffic to your business.
Local Search Ads
Recently Google introduced Local Search Ads. Businesses that participate get a green checkmark – Google Guaranteed, listed next to the business name. When someone makes a local search, your business will show up at the very top of search results, even above the PPC ads. The difference between Google Ads and Local search ads is, Google Ads is Pay Per Click, and Local Search Ads are Pay per Lead.
Some of the industries that are eligible for Local Search Ads:
Locksmiths, Plumbers, Garage Door, Electricians, HVAC, Air Duct Cleaner*, Appliance, Repair Service*, Auto Glass Service*, Auto Service Technician*, Carpet Cleaner*, Event Planner*, Handyman*, Home Improvement Pro*, House Cleaner*, Junk Removal Provider*, Lawn Care Provider*, Mover*, Painter*, Pest Control Technician*, Pet Care Provider*, Pet Groomer*, Photographer*, Roadside Assistance Service*, Roofer*, Tree Service Provider*, Tutor*, Upholstery, Cleaner*, Water Damage Service Provider*, Window Cleaner*, Window Service Provider*
The more quality reviews you can get, the better the chance of a high local Google ranking. We can help you reach out to your customers, ask them about their experience, learn from their responses and market your positive feedback and reviews across the web. You will receive weekly or monthly reports that monitor the main review sites, email alerts for new reviews, and track your reviews over time.
You will be able to display reviews on your website, and you’ll be able to control how many reviews appear, where they originated from, the order of reviews, and if they are above a certain ranking.
If your business has multiple locations, these reports will help organize reviews and feedback all in one place. For medical practices with multiple physicians or a law firm with multiple attorneys, we can create one dashboard for managers to receive feedback and respond to reviews from one place.
