5 KILLER LOCAL SEO TIPS


Tip 1: Get listed on Google My Business.

Make sure your profile is complete and keep it up-to-date. Once you get verified through

Google (they’ll either call or send you a letter), you can get basic data regarding

how people are finding you and where they’re coming from. click here

 

 

Tip 2: Use Google Posts in your Google My Business account.

In June, Google launched Google Posts in every GMB account. Now, businesses can

post updates about deals, local offerings, and upcoming events through their

Google My Business account.

Tip 3: Update your NAP & content regularly and make them consistent across all channels.

It’s not enough to stay on top of your Google My Business listing — you need to make

sure your contact and location information & content is updated and consistent across

your website, social media pages, review sites and directory listings.

 

 

Tip 4: Optimize your URL, tags & content.

Your URL, title tags, headers, meta descriptions and content should include your city or

region and the target keyword of the page they describe. This tells Google what

geographical location the page is relevant to and what content is on the

page - and it helps them index your page accordingly.

 

 

Tip 5: Get more relevant reviews for your business.

Ninety percent of people in a Zendesk survey said their buying decisions were influenced by online

reviews, and Moz estimates that online reviews make up 10 percent of how Google decides

to rank your page. This makes your presence on the major review sites critical.

 


 

 

 

It is also very important to stay on top of your visitors flow and the

way they interact with your site, which will help you plan a better

marketing strategy for the future. Want to see a great local search
