How Local SEO Works

Local SEO is exactly what it says it is – SEO (search engine optimisation) but for a local search marketplace. There isn’t a great deal of difference between Local search engine optimisation and nationwide SEO – the main premise is that Local SEO will narrow down keywords searched within your business’s target location – it also incorporates exercises to improve Google My Business and Google Map Listing performance.

When people conduct a search on their mobile phone, laptop, tablet or desktop PC – the nature of their search will dictate what results they get – whether they search for “Restaurant Near Me” or “MOT Garage London” what people search for will dictate what they get back in search results – for most consumers and online searchers, they’ll get localised search results – why? because they’re more relevant.

Local SEO services put your website in front of a local searching audience – those are the people MOST likely to buy your product or service. You’ll be allocated an in house dedicated SEO consultant who will provide a clear & concise overview of a search engine optimization strategy.


1. Local SEO Audit & Audience Fact Find

At the beginning of your local seo campaign we’ll undertake a fact find to ascertain your business offering and to better understand business objectives, brand, message and target audience personas. Our Local SEO Specialists look at signals that Google will consider when ascertaining your businesses location, quality, reviews, social signals, links & brand searches online – we work to influence POSITIVE SEO Results.

2. Local Keyword Research
