Local Search Engine Optimization is the work needed to get a website to show up in search results that Google shows maps and phone numbers on, and into listing sites that local searchers use to find companies like Manta. Search engines have decided that these search terms show local intent, maybe to hire a contractor or visit a store. The effort to get a company listed on these results is different than the organic results.
Many components go into appearing in these results, and it’s really time-consuming to get it done right. The most important factor is the 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 website, your Google My Business profile, and on all of the listing 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 spell it differently like “123 Main St. Suite Four, New York, NY”. Search engines use these address mentions to discover other web pages that list your organization. These listings are called citations. If a search engine can’t match the name, address, and phone number properly 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.
