What is Local SEO?

Local SEO, or Local Search Optimisation,  involves optimising your presence on Google My Business  making Google understand the location of your business and the markets it serves and making sure you’re easy to find in other local search listings, such as Bing Places for Business and directories. In other words, no matter which path a nearby user might take to find your site, you should aim to make their journey as easy as possible.

With Google continuing on its quest to make the search engine results ever more personalised, local results are more prominent than ever before. But the importance of local SEO stems from more than just a desire to rank well. Fundamentally, it’s about making your business easy for users in your area to find.

Today’s users are not only shopping online, but also looking to local businesses to find the products and services they want. Google loves a local business and with the right SEO strategy in place, local users will find a place in their hearts for you too.
