Local SEO operates on many of the same practices and principles as regular SEO, with an emphasis on local traffic and local features.
Local SEO is meant to capture local search intent, and local searches often include markers like “near me” or a specific location. Optimizing for local helps you rank for these type of location-specific searches.
To optimize for local SEO, you’ll need to create content that’s specific to your location and your niche to attract local customers.
Like regular SEO, you’ll do this by targeting keywords. Unlike regular SEO, these keywords will often have local ties. Try to include local landmarks, destinations, and attractions within your content to capture those searching with local intent. Not only will you attract new customers and maintain existing ones, but each post you publish with local keywords will give your site another local page for Google to index.
In local SEO, your NAP refers to name, address, and location.
It’s very important that this information is up-to-date and consistent across all citations and search listings.
According to a recent Bright Local study, 64% of searchers have used Google My Business simply to find a business’ contact information, proving that a typo or an incomplete profile can mean missing out on sales.
On top of that, inconsistencies in your profile can mean that Google and search engines don’t know which information to trust, which could lead to inaccurate contact or other information displaying in the search engine results.
The good news is that regardless of the number of locations, the same local SEO principles still apply.
This means you’ll still need to optimize your GMB accounts, claim local citations, generate reviews, and produce local content.
Here’s where it gets a little tricky: you’ll need to produce that information for all locations. If you run a multi-location business, you should add and optimize local listings for each location, with a unique profile for each. This may seem like a lot of work, but creating individual profiles will eliminate any duplicate content issues. Each location will also need a strategy in place to generate and respond to reviews.
Depending on the size of your business and the number of locations, this can be a significant undertaking. Ignite Visibility can help you determine and execute a strategy to ensure each location thrives.
