Local SEO is the art of getting a business to show up in search results that Google shows maps and phone numbers on, and into citation sites that local searchers use to find companies like Yelp. Search engines have decided that these searches have local intent, maybe to hire someone or visit a store. The work to get listed on these results is different than the organic results.
Many components go into appearing in these results, and it’s surprisingly time-consuming to get it done right. The most important component is your companies Name, Address and Phone Number which are referred to as NAP in the SEO industry. This information has to be written out precisely the same on your site, your Google My Business listing, and on all of the listing websites that you have profiles. If you write your company address as “123 Main St, #4, New York, NY” on your site then you can’t write it differently like “123 Main St. Suite Four, New York, NY”. Google uses these address mentions to identify other web pages that list your company. These listings are called citations. If Google can’t match the company name, address, and phone number properly then it might miss a citation. You need many citations to rank well on the maps. Making a mistake here will cost your company greatly.
Here at our company, we see to it that every mention on your website and every citation site matches perfectly. For the local listing sites you don’t have, we create those profiles. You need at least 48 specific citations on listing sites to get highly ranked for good search keywords. There are an additional 125 listing sites that are important. Some are specific to an industry, and we create as many of them as we can for your company so you get you the best rankings possible.
After listings and citations are taken care of you need to focus on reviews. Search engines want you to have client created reviews on your profiles and your website. We offer tools that manage asking clients for reviews and help you display them in ways that search engines like. This has the added benefit of showing stars on some of your listings in search results, and clients are more likely to click on companies websites if they see good reviews.
