What is Local SEO?

Local SEO is local search engine optimisation. When a potential new customer uses Google or another search engine to look up any type of business in their area, local SEO is what can help your company name show in the search results. 

Local SEO is similar to conventional SEO, but is focused on boosting your business listings locally in online local search results.

By using the local SEO, you can compete with the big brands in your local area and even beat them in your particular product. 

When people search for businesses like yours in their area, you want your business in the results. And with location data on mobile devices, the person no longer has to type in their location to see local results, the search engines now know where they are from their mobile phones location.

Local SEO involves website optimisations, adding your business to business directories, and managing your business reviews. As well as getting your business on Google My Business (GMB for short) is an important part of local SEO.

Local SEO Services & Google My Business (GMB)

GMB is an incredibly useful tool for all businesses, especially for sole traders and small businesses that work within a local area. And for larger businesses that may operate over the whole UK or internationally or from several locations.

Whether or not your business has a website, it will almost certainly get listed on Google. Which means that anyone could search your business name, register it with Google and then claim your business profile on GMB without you knowing. And a competitor may adversely affect your business. It would be best if you claimed your listing so that you are in control of your business image online.

Local SEO services can optimise your GMB profile allows you to supply useful business information to potential customers such as opening hours, contact details, a description of what you do, photos of your products, services, team members etc.. And you can create special offers and regularly add posts with new images and content in a similar way to social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram etc..

Plus Google My Business enables your customers to contact you and leave reviews on Google which gives your business added credibility on Google for search engine optimisation.

A listing on GBM will mean that your business will show up in not only in the map ‘3 pack’ of Google search but also in Google Maps which is important for local searches and local SEO.

Finally, you can install the dedicated Google My Business app on your phone to be able to edit and check your listing out and about. And Bing Places has a similar app for your phone.
