Using Local SEO, a business can increase its local profile and take advantage of the many benefits of local search. Most business with an online marketing presence are aware of Search Engine Optimisation as a powerful method of rising up the search engine rankings, but many are not ready for the increasing localisation of the internet, where the vast majority of people now use Google and other search engines to find information on businesses and services in their area. This growing phenomenon makes Local SEO essential if an online business wants to score in local areas.
One of the major advantages for businesses seeking to increase local traffic is the fact that when customers search locally they tend to be further along the buying cycle than other online consumers. They tend to be searching more specifically with particular items in mind, and their searches tend to lead to a greater number of conversions and sales.
In a nutshell, Local SEO is the refinement of SEO methods to gain high rankings in local search queries. Locally-based businesses make up much of these rankings, but it is also used by companies which have a local reach into areas or some other form of local presence, such as local branches.
Local SEO then, aims to boost profitability by driving traffic to a local physical location and generates phone calls and emails from potential customers. Local SEO methods offer solutions to the challenges raised by the rise of local search listings.
The online customer also has a more satisfactory experience with Local SEO because they find themselves directed to more relevant content on your website. Instead of the more general homepage, they can find themselves on the contact page, with contact details such as the business's address and phone number and other location-specific information. This has been shown to improve sales conversions and lower the number of people who immediately navigate away from sites they have been directed to.
