Local SEO is the work needed to get a website to turn up in search results that Google shows maps and phone numbers on, and into citation sites that local searchers use to find companies like Foursquare. Google has decided that these searches exhibit local intent, maybe to hire a contractor or visit a store. The effort to get listed on these results is different than the organic results.
There are many components that go into appearing in these results, and it’s highly time-consuming to get it done properly. The most important factor is the Name, Address and Phone Number which we call NAP in the SEO industry. This information has to be written out exactly the same on your website, your Google My Business profile, and on all of the citation websites that you have profiles. If you write your address as “123 Main St, #4, New York, NY” on your site then you can’t do it differently like “123 Main St. Suite Four, New York, NY”. Google uses these address mentions to identify other web pages that are about your organization. These are called citations. If a search engine can’t match the name, address, and phone number correctly then it might miss the citation. You need many citations to rank well on the maps. Getting any of this wrong is a big mistake.
Here at Local SEO Company, we ensure that the address on your website and every citation site matches exactly. For the citation sites you don’t have, we create those profiles. You need at least 48 specific citations on listing sites to be highly ranked for hard search keywords. There are over 125 additional listing sites that are important. Some are specific to an industry, and we create all that we can to get you the highest rankings possible.
After citations and listings are taken care of you need to focus on reviews. Google wants you to have reviews created by customers on your profiles and your website. We provide tools that help you ask customers for reviews and display them on your website. This has the added benefit of displaying stars on some of your listings in Google results, and customers are more likely to click on websites if they see positive reviews.
