What Is Local SEO?

Local search engine optimization (popularly known as local SEO) is the process of increasing a website’s local rankings by using local business listings, localized content, geo-targeted keyword research, and building citations. It is considered a highly effective digital approach for physical businesses that want to increase their online visibility in a specific area.

With local SEO, websites can be easier to find in local search results since they will appear as the most relevant brand based on a given geographical area. This is possible because search engines pull information from businesses using sources like online directories, forums, review websites, and blogs.

A website can rank on local search results through the following elements:

  • The proximity of a business to the search user
  • The relevance of a business to the search query
  • What customers say about a business

With an ideal SEO campaign, you can:

  • Outrank your local competition
  • Drive more leads and sales in a certain service area
  • Bring in more organic traffic to your website

How To Improve Local SEO

Here are 10 things you can do to improve the local SEO of your business:

  1. Configure your Google My Business (GMB) page: When you set up your GMB page, you get a free listing for your business that is capable of showing up in search results. Additionally, you can also connect with potential customers using Google Maps.
  2. Get positive reviews: One of the easiest ways to generate positive reviews of your brand is to ask your past customers to share their experiences. You should prioritize getting good testimonials of your business on Google and Yelp for this approach to be effective.
  3. Fix inconsistent business information: It’s common for businesses to change their information such as their phone numbers, physical locations, and business names. That’s why you should ensure that your NAP (name, address, phone number) listings are updated and consistent across various business directories.
  4. Publish quality content: Conducting keyword research can help you identify relevant topics so you can create content that your local customers are searching for. Blogging is one of the best ways small businesses can improve their local SEO, especially when they have multiple locations.
  5. Set up your business profiles: There are plenty of business directories nowadays that you can use to share details about your business. You must have a presence on major directory platforms like Facebook, Bing, and Yelp including niche directories such as Factual, Foursquare, and Infogroup.
  6. Optimize landing page metadata: Auditing and updating the meta information in your landing pages is important because search engines rely on this data to rank your website.
  7. Ensure mobile-friendliness: You want to make sure that your site is mobile-friendly by optimizing it for mobile search users. The main reason for this approach is because more people are now using their mobile phones when looking for something.
  8. Secure local placements: Most SEO professionals refer to this tactic as localized link building, yet in reality, it’s all about promoting your brand to local organizations and journalists who might be interested in talking about your business. Getting local links from high authority sources is extremely beneficial to boost rankings locally.
  9. Perform a website audit: Carrying out a site audit can help you identify which areas of your local SEO need improvement. You can get a website audit report for free by using our site analysis tool.
  10. Leverage search engine snippets: Finally, you want to take advantage of search engine snippets so you can optimize how your business shows up on search engine results pages (SERPs).
