FAQs about local SEO
Looking to learn more about local SEO services for your business? Browse our FAQs:
SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is the practice of enhancing a website to improve its visibility when people search for products or services related to your business in search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo. The goal of SEO is to increase a website’s online presence, drive more organic (non-paid) traffic, and achieve higher rankings in search engine results pages (SERPs).
This process involves various techniques and strategies, including optimizing website content and structure, improving site speed, ensuring mobile-friendliness, and acquiring quality backlinks from other websites. It also includes keyword research to understand the terms and phrases potential customers use when searching online, and optimizing content to align with these search queries.
Effective SEO involves a deep understanding of search engine algorithms and how they rank websites, as well as staying up-to-date with the latest trends and changes in the digital marketing landscape. In essence, SEO is about making your website more attractive and accessible to both search engines and users, thereby increasing the likelihood of attracting potential customers to your site.
Local SEO focuses specifically on improving your business’ visibility within its local area of operation, targeting audiences typically within a few miles of your business. It also places particular emphasis on improving foot traffic to a physical business location.
General SEO, meanwhile, is designed to help businesses generate revenue online or on a wider scale, establish a larger audience, and increase web traffic.
Because of this, general SEO targets a much wider audience in terms of geographic location compared to the specific, local audience targeted by local SEO. General and local SEO also have different ranking factors, meaning organic and local SEO strategies can be very different.
In practice, virtually every business can benefit from local SEO. However, it’s particularly important for businesses that have a set focus on local services or that operate solely within specific geographic areas. Your business could stand to benefit greatly from hiring a local SEO expert if:
- Your business relies especially on local customers for its sales and revenue.
- Your business operates within specific areas – eg. in a particular neighborhood, town, city or region.
- You’re a local franchise of a larger company.
- You need more traffic, leads, and sales within specific designated market areas (DMAs).
- You need your business to appear on Google Maps and other navigation apps, or if you’re aiming to have your business featured in Google’s local map pack.
- You’re a multi-location brand that has offices or provides services in multiple cities but doesn’t provide products or services nationwide.
If your business meets any of these criteria, then it would benefit from local SEO optimization services.
There’s no simple answer to this – the reality is that neither local SEO or PPC are better than the other, they’re just different. Local SEO tends to be more cost effective, but can take a while to begin delivering returns on investment, whereas PPC campaigns deliver a more immediate return but can be less cost-effective in the long term.
A comprehensive digital marketing strategy includes both SEO and PPC – so consider hiring a digital marketing agency that has past experience successfully crafting campaigns for both marketing mediums.
Yes – local business SEO services often double as Google Maps SEO services. One of the most important factors in local SEO is your Google My Business profile, which also appears on Google Maps when users in your location search for businesses like yours nearby. By optimizing your GMB profile using GMB SEO services, you can ensure that local consumers are able to easily find your business using Google Maps.
Alongside our other local SEO solutions, our Google Maps SEO agency can ensure your business has the right SEO measures and GMB presence in place to boost your visibility on Google Maps.
Not exactly – it would be more accurate to say that Google Maps SEO services are a specific branch of local SEO services. A local SEO company may work with Google Maps SEO, but a Google Maps SEO company might not work with wider local SEO solutions.
It’s hard to answer this question as it varies greatly based on your business location, competitive landscape, and industry. It will generally take around 2-3 months to see positive ranking movement after implementing local SEO plans from our local SEO marketing company. After an estimated 6-8 months (or 8-12 months in competitive markets), you should also attain first-page rankings for target keywords and audiences.
Our in-house team of local SEO experts can provide more detailed timelines during the keyword and website analysis phases of our local SEO optimization services to determine reasonable expectations for when you’ll see results from your local SEO plan.
Absolutely! We offer two options for local SEO audits: a basic, AI-generated audit, or an in-depth, manual full custom SEO audit offering comprehensive analysis of your website and Google My Business profile from our team of local SEO specialists. The basic AI audit is free, but we charge a fee for the comprehensive manual audit.
Alongside our SEO audits, we also offer PPC audits – allowing us to audit your Google Ads account for an even more comprehensive digital marketing solution.
Local SEO operates on different principles to other forms of SEO, so its ranking factors differ slightly too. Important local SEO ranking factors include:
- Google My Business optimization
- On-page optimizations (metadata, geo-tagged images and articles, local business schema etc.)
- Customer reviews
- Local citations
- Link signals and backlinking
Our local SEO agency will optimize all of these factors for your website and GMB profile to deliver the best possible local SEO results.
