Local SEO is More Important Than Ever
Local SEO is very different than the SEO prior to the popularization of smartphones. Now searches are not just looking for a gas station or a restaurant. They are looking for a gas station or restaurant near them. Google has a unique algorithm that specifically deals with local SEO results, It is important that you deal with an experienced local SEO expert to ensure that you get the results you are looking for.
Getting Started With Local SEO
Local Map Packs
A Google search for any local business will display what is called a ‘map pack' before the search results.
This is an example of the local map pack for a local search for Italian restaurants in North York.
This is the premier location for your business to be shown. This used to include up to 7 local businesses but now it is down to 3 (and one of those could be an advertisement).
This means that local SEO is more competitive than ever and more critical to your business beating out your competitors to the premium spots.
Google My Business
Your first step should be to claim your Google My Business (GMB) listing. It is not a difficult process but a very important one. This provides Google with all of the important information that it needs to properly categorize your business. It will include opening hours, contact information etc. The more information you provide to Google, the better chances you have at ranking locally.
Local SEO Citations
Like your GMB page, citations are listings on specific websites that provide pertinent information about your company. The more information that Google can find about your business the better it will rank in the local map pack. It is very important that all of this information is consistent, accurate and up to date. When we start work with a new client the first step we recommend is to run a citation audit to identify what citations are out there and which ones need to be updated.
In addition to your GMB page, citations can make or break your local SEO effectiveness.
Other Local SEO Factors
While having an optimized GMB and correct situations are very important and provide a solid foundation for any local SEO campaign they are not the be all and end all of any campaign. There are other factors that are important as well. You need to have relevant optimized quality content that loads quickly and works on all devices.
With millions of searches online each day, it is necessary for your local business to be found locally, by your local North York clients when they are searching for your products, services, or brand in general. Simply building a website will not alone bring traffic.
