Local SEO Company
Traditional SEO strategies are designed to improve your website’s ranking within the global search results. This means that traditional methods put your website in front of potential clients that are performing searches from all over the world.
But, what if a company only wants to target customers that live locally? That’s where local SEO comes in.
Google uses IP addresses to identify where their searchers are located. The search engine then uses this information to decide which search results to present to the user, and in what order.
For example, someone in Los Angeles who searches “criminal defense attorney” will see a list of criminal defense attorneys in their community even though they did not include geographic keywords in their search.
GET FOUND LOCALLY!
Local SEO allows you to appear on the maps section of Google, which is placed on or near the top of the first page of the search results.
The Importance of Local SEO Strategies
If your business only serves clients in a specific city or region, it’s crucial that you focus on local SEO. Potential clients turn to Google and other search engines when trying to find a local business that meets their unique needs.
If you are not in one of the top local spots, your competitors will be, which means potential clients will see them first. Focusing on local SEO is the only way to ensure potential clients in your community can find your business when they are in need of your products or services.
How Social Firestarter Can Improve Your Local SEO
Websites can appear in two places within local search results: the organic listings and Google maps, which appear at the top of the results. We work tirelessly to place your website in both of these areas, so we can make sure that potential clients in yourcitysee your listing.
How? We start by focusing on the Google Maps listing since this appears at the top of the search results. The strength of your Google Places profile plays an important role in determining if you will appear in these results. We will make the necessary changes to your profile to improve your chances.
STAND OUT WITH REVIEWS!
Often, we can make your listing stand out by displaying stars associated with positive reviews found on your Google Places account.
Making these changes will positively impact your organic rankings as well, so you may rise to the top of the results in both areas. It’s not easy to secure these coveted spots—especially in fiercely competitive regions—but we know exactly what Google is looking for when they rank local listings.
Securing a place in the local search results is one thing, but you also need to make sure that clients don’t simply scroll past your listing. Our team can help clients make their local listing stand out.
Businesses that have positive reviews on Google will have stars next to their listing in the local search results. We help businesses build their reviews, so these sparkling stars are on full display for potential clients that are interested in your products or services.
