Local SEO is the work needed to get a website to show up in search results that Google shows maps and contact information on, and into citation sites that local searchers use to find companies like Manta. Search engines have decided that these searches exhibit local intent, maybe to hire someone or visit a store. The effort to get listed on these results is different than the standard organic results.
There are many factors that go into appearing in these results, and it’s surprisingly time-consuming to do right. The most important factor is the Name, Address and Phone Number which we call NAP in the SEO industry. This information needs to be written out precisely the same on your site, 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 write it differently like “123 Main St. Suite Four, New York, NY”. Google uses these NAP mentions to identify other web pages that list your organization. These listings are called citations. If Google can’t match the name, address, and phone number correctly 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 Local SEO Company, we make sure that the address on your website and every citation site matches perfectly. For the listing sites you don’t have, we produce those profiles. You need at least 48 specific citations on listing sites to get ranked for hard search terms. There are over 125 additional important listing sites. Some of these sites are industry specific, but we make 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. Search engines want you to have reviews created by real customers 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 entries in search results, and new customers are more likely to click on websites if they see good reviews.
