Local SEO – Local website traffic and new local customers

What is Local SEO?

Local SEO is just that.  Search engine optimization, based on location. For example, when you search for ‘best sushi restaurant’, Google would provide results that are nearest to you.  Local SEO is an effective way to market your business online – It helps businesses promote their products and services to local customers.  Here are a few ways that this works:

1. Google My Business

 If you’re not listed on Google, you’re missing out on a massive potential new business. Google My Business is a great marketing platform for businesses.  To get started Google My Business, simply go to Google My Business and type your business name and address into the search bar and follow the instructions.

2. Directory Listings 

The best way to develop links to your site is an appropriate directory that lists all or some of your pertinent information. (Name, Address, and Phone Number) information. Local listings include online directories such as Yellow Pages, Foursquare, 411, and Yelp. The more often your business information is found on the web with consistent information, the higher your visibility it will be.
