Who Needs Local Seo Services ?

Any business that gets some or all of its customers or clients locally should consider local search engine optimization. That could be a local restaurant, retail outlet, doctor, dentist or lawyer, but it could just as easily be a local ad agency. If you provide local services you should be doing local search engine optimization for that location.

Targeted Keywords and Phrases

Untargeted traffic is useless. The number of visitors you get is meaningless. It’s the number of qualified visitors you get that counts. The right words will not only increase your rankings in search engines for that search, but also increase the amount of users who are potential customers.

Local Seo Services to grow your business. Great results delivered

SEO is the process of influencing the factors that make your website appear higher in search engine results. Local SEO is a subsector of general SEO that tries to make your website perform better in search with a location component (ex. Miami Divorce lawyer). For example, say you are a dentist in Orlando, Florida, you probably don’t really care if your site shows up in searches by users in other states like New York or Texas. You do care if you show up in other communities that make up the Orlando area. That is where Local SEO services comes in.

The good news is that Local Search Engine Optimization can produce results faster then normal SEO. After all, our Orlando dentist is only competing against other local plumbers and not everyone else providing a similar service around the USA.

How is Local SEO different from National SEO?

While all of the elements that apply to national campaings also impact local search engine optimization, local comes with a few unique elements.

The first and probably most important is that for this type of SEO you need to create and claim a local profile on Google (and other similar platforms.) Your local listing is what will show for local targeted search results.

The second most important thing is called a citation. A citation is any place online that uses your company NAP (name, address, phone number) all on the same page, in the same format as your local listing. This same format bit is pretty important. While Google is pretty smart, it’s best to make sure that your local citation efforts match your local listing as closely as possible.

Third, reviews. Lots and lots of reviews (preferably really good ones.) Quantity and quality of reviews left for your business on your Google Places page is one of the most important local ranking factors.

Should local companies do local SEO in-house or hire an agency?

What are the pros and cons of each? This depends entirely on your budget. There are plenty of guides out there that will walk you through this, and you could quite easily put an intern in charge of reading those posts and following instructions. Of course, if they mess things up, neither you nor they may realize it until it’s far too late. An agency will almost certainly be able to do the same things much, much faster, and while an agency may cost more upfront it might end up being worth it for the speed and accuracy.

What price range should YOU expect to pay for local SEO?

This type of service via an agency could range from $150/month for the most basic work all the way up to tens of thousands of dollars per month for a competitive space with hundreds or thousands of locations. Pricing will be based on the competitiveness of your space and the number of locations you have. In-house, you could be paying $2.50/hr for someone in the Philippines or India to build citations, all the way up to $100,000+ for a top notch in-house SEO. When it comes to SEO, local or otherwise, you typically get what you pay for, and cheap = risky.
