Local SEO is the work needed to get a company to turn 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 express local intent, maybe to hire a contractor or visit a store. The effort to get a business listed on these results differs from the standard organic results.
Many factors work together to get your company into these results, and it’s extremely time-consuming to get it done properly. The most important component is your companies Name, Address and Phone Number which are referred to as NAP in the SEO industry. These have to be written out exactly the same on your company 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 website then you can’t spell it differently like “123 Main St. Suite Four, New York, NY”. Search engines use these address mentions to detect other web pages that are about your company. These are called citations. If a search engine can’t match up the company name, address, and phone number properly then it might miss a 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 see to it that the business address on your website and every citation site matches perfectly. For the citation sites you don’t already have, we produce those profiles. You need at least 48 specific citations on listing sites to be ranked for hard-to-win search terms. There are an additional 125 important listing sites. Some of these sites are specific to an industry, and we work to create as many of them as we can for your company so you get you the best 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 company website. We offer tools that manage asking customers for reviews and display them on your website. This has the added benefit of showing stars on some of your entries in search results, and new customers are more likely to click on websites if they see good reviews.
