Local SEO is the art of getting a website to turn up in search results that Google shows maps and phone numbers on, and into citation sites that local searchers use to find companies like Merchant Circle. Google has decided that these searches exhibit 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.
There are many factors that go into appearing in these results, and it’s very time-consuming to do right. The most important element is the Name, Address and Phone Number which we call NAP in the industry. This information needs to be written out exactly the same on your website, your Google My Business listing, and on all of the citation sites that you have profiles. If you write your address as “123 Main St, #4, New York, NY” on your website then you can’t write it differently like “123 Main St. Suite Four, New York, NY”. Search engines use these NAP mentions to find other web pages that are about your organization. These listings are called citations. If a search engine can’t match up the name, address, and phone number precisely 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.
Here at Local SEO Company, we make sure that the address on your website and every citation site matches perfectly. For the citation sites you don’t already have, we create those profiles. You need a minimum of 48 specific citations on listing sites to get highly ranked for hard-to-win search terms. There are over 125 additional important listing sites. Some are industry specific, and we work to create 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. Google wants you to have customer created reviews on your profiles and your website. We have tools that help you ask customers for reviews and display them on your website. This has the added benefit of showing stars on some of your entries in Google results, and new customers are more likely to click on websites if they see positive reviews.
