Local SEO is the act of getting a website to appear 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 searches have local intent, maybe to hire someone or visit a store. The work to get listed on these results is different than the standard organic results.
Many factors help you appear these results, and it’s highly time-consuming to do right. The most important component is the Name, Address and Phone Number which we call NAP in the 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. That means if you write your address as “123 Main St, #4, New York, NY” on your website then you can’t spell it differently like “123 Main St. Suite Four, New York, NY”. Search engines use these NAP mentions to detect 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 properly then it might miss a citation. You need many citations to rank well on the maps. Making a mistake here will cost your greatly.
Here at our company, we see to it that every mention on your website and every citation site matches perfectly. For the listing sites you don’t have, we make those profiles. You need at least 48 specific citations on listing sites to get highly ranked for hard search keywords. There are over 125 additional listing sites that are important. Some are industry specific, but we make as many of them as we can to get you the highest rankings possible.
After listings and citations are taken care of you need to focus on reviews. Search engines want you to have customer created reviews on your profiles and your website. We offer tools that help you ask customers for reviews and help you display them in ways that search engines like. This has the added benefit of displaying stars on some of your listings in Google results, and searchers are more likely to click on websites if they see positive reviews.
