Tips to Accelerate Your Local SEO Success in 2014

THURSDAY, JULY 24, 2014

Local SEO is all the rage. Google, Bing, Yahoo, and everyone else is focusing on it. Large companies have realized that when people search for a pizza store, or a jewelry repair service, or a bar, they are not looking forward to learn about places thousands of miles away. A lot of the time, their curiosity is local. They want to know about nightlife places and businesses that are near to them.

Google and Bing have adapted to this trend. Look for schools in New York and then repeat the search in San Diego. You will notice a wide disparity between the search results. The big search engines are localizing results.

Businesses can capitalize on this trend if they make a solid plan to dominate local SEO and act on it.

A few strategies go a long way in helping businesses rank high on local search. Here is a rundown of the top five local SEO tips:

(a)    Be present on Google Maps. Do not give up until your profile is 100 percent complete.

(b)    Get into the Yahoo local directory: Directories matter still. A link from the local version of Yahoo can give you a big boost in local search.

(c)    Focus on local information websites: Create strategic partnerships between your website and locally dominate blogs, forums, and websites. It will bring visitors to your website.

(d)    Include localized keywords: Every town in America has its slang. Try to include keywords on your website that are unique to your town, city, or state.

(e)    Hire a local SEO service: Start looking for services that will focus on local SEO for business success. Hire them. The results can amaze you.

Local SEO strategies can give you an edge over competitors in your town, improve your sales, and build your brand. Do not ignore it.
