Local Search Engine Optimization

Local Search Marketing Made Easy

Local SEO is the largest source of qualified leads you can get.

We help our clients through a practice called local search optimization or “local SEO”. This helps their businesses rank higher on Google when people are searching for their services.

  • These are the kinds of leads that everybody wants because they’re self-qualified and have a genuine need for your services.
  • Any business that serves customers in a specific location needs local SEO. 
  • Google makes up 90% of all search engine traffic so we focus on Google’s algorithm.
  • Google has a different algorithm to rank local searches vs non local searches.

An example of a local search is “electrician in Portland Maine” 

An example of a non-local search might be “Lighting” because this a product that’s not tied to a physical location.

Stay in control of your online visibility. We help you identify and build missing business listings on top directories, as well as niche, industry-specific sites.

  • Let us build new listings for you — we’re fast and cost-effective
  • We’ll also fix inaccurate existing listings and remove duplicates
  • We also submit to data aggregators to reach dozens of directories in one go

Included in our SILVER, GOLD, and PLATINUM SEO Packages.

Local Listing Process:

Enhanced Google My Business Listing (GMB)

  • Having a GMB listing is great start to Local SEO, but if it’s not optimized it won’t work to its full potential.
  • With an Enhanced GMB listing we assure that your products/services are showing for your specified location.
  • There’s a lot of room for error when setting up and managing a Google My Business listing, especially for business owners who are too busy actually running their business to read through the research on best practices. This is why when we start working with a client this is one of the first things we review.

Local Listing Growth

  • Once a GBM listing is optimized for performance in Google Local Searches we move on to Local Listing Growth that will trigger a piece of Google’s Ranking Algorithm to give your GBM listing more relevance, as well as boost your organic rankings.

Build local listings on key sites

  • Submission of listings to all the main sites, as well as 40+ niche industry sites. We’ll carefully select niche directories that cater to your target market.

Clean up existing local listings

  • Fix inaccuracies in existing listings so there’s no misinformation to confuse search engines or customers. We make sure every bit of information we submit is accurate and verified.

Remove duplicate listings

  • Removal of harmful duplicate listings that could be holding back SEO performance. Duplicate listings can trigger adverse effects with Google’s Ranking Algorithm.

Data Aggregator submission

  • As well as manual listings, we also submit to data aggregators to widen your reach at a minimal cost. Data aggregators push your business information to 100s of business directories, mobile apps, and mapping services worldwide.

Advanced Reporting

  • Receive monthly updates of your local listing progress, plus access to our online portal to view in realtime every aspect of your local search listings, Google My Business Optimization, Google Reviews, Local Search Grid and more. 

What directories do we submit to?

We submit to the following General Directories, plus over 800 niche directories that we carefully select based on the client business focus.

This is NOT Link Building, these are local directory submissions that strictly adhere to all White Hat SEO Tactics.
