Local SEO Services
Local SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is a digital marketing strategy that helps businesses improve their visibility in local search results. Local SEO can help businesses increase traffic, leads, and brand awareness. Approximately 46% of all searches on Google are local in nature.
Local search engine optimization is about enhancing your local business listing (known as your Google Business Profile) — and the pages on your website — so that they are optimized for searches with a local focus.
The goal is to get your business into the Google Maps 3-pack, which are the top results for a local business search and have high visibility, The Maps 3-pack receives 44-61% of the total clicks. The 3-pack appears at the top of search engine results pages, and includes three local businesses that Google deems relevant, prominent, and close in proximity to the user.
It's important to understand that Google's algorithm for local search results is different from its algorithm for organic search results. To succeed in local SEO, you must dedicate effort to enhancing your Google Business Profile, accumulating customer reviews, and establishing citations, all of which contribute to boosting your business's local search ranking potential.
