local seo

Local SEO is a type of search engine optimization (SEO) that makes your company more prominent in Google’s local search results.

Local SEO may help any company that has a physical location or services in a specific geographic region. Local SEO may help you develop your business if you search Google for any relevant keywords connected to your business and a map with three listings shows beneath it (also known as a map pack).

This Brief Checklist will guide you on how to rank your business locally without putting in much effort.

Your Top Priorities in Local SEO

  • Google My Business (GMB)
  • Respond to customer/client reviews
  • Look out for incorrect edits;
  • Use Google Posts to keep your customers informed
  • Bing Places for Business
  • Social Accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) Social accounts have no direct impact on a business’s local SEO ranking but are a good source to market your business and fetch potential customers to your website.
  • Keyword Research (Local Keywords) / Competitors’ Keyword Analysis of Local Keywords
