Our Approach to Local SEO

1

Audience Research

We begin by researching your local audience. By conducting thorough research we understand your potential customers, their behaviour and their preferences. This helps us to tailor your local SEO strategy to attract the people who are most likely to become your customers.

2

Strategy

With insights from our research, we craft a comprehensive local SEO strategy. This strategy not only targets location-based keywords but includes content creation, and on-page and off-page amends. We create a clear roadmap for success in your local market.

3

Website optimisations

Your website is at the heart of your online presence. We optimise it for local search, ensuring that as well as being user-friendly it’s highly discoverable in your local area for customers seeking your products or services.

4

Google My Business

We optimise and manage your Google My Business profile to ensure you’re prominently displayed in local searches and on Google Maps. This helps you establish trust with potential customers and enhances your online visibility.

5

Local Listings

We take control of your online presence across local directories and listings. Consistency and accuracy in your NAP (Name, Address, Phone Number) information across the web are crucial for local SEO success.

6

Local Press

Our local SEO strategy extends to leveraging local press and media. We help you gain valuable local backlinks, enhance your brand’s credibility, and strengthen your position in your community.

Why is local SEO important?

In today’s search engines, users don’t need to explicitly state their location to see localised search results. Search engines intuitively provide location-aware results, making local SEO an indispensable strategy to ensure your business is discovered by the right people.

 

With 97% of users turning to the internet to find local businesses for their specific needs, the significance of local SEO cannot be overstated. It not only boosts your online visibility but also enhances your local profile and reputation. Positive reviews, location-specific keywords, and tailored strategies all contribute to positioning your business as a trusted and respected choice in your community.

 

Local SEO isn’t limited to small businesses; it’s equally crucial for franchises and well-known brands. Even large corporations benefit from localised strategies to effectively engage with local audiences. 

 

We provide a bespoke approach, tailored to each client’s unique needs, with advanced reporting tools that allow for continuous refinement. By seamlessly integrating with other digital marketing channels, such as social media and PPC, local SEO ensures your business maximises its local success and takes full advantage of the ever-expanding digital landscape.

Local SEO FAQs

What is local SEO?

Local SEO, or Local Search Engine Optimisation, is a digital marketing strategy focused on enhancing the online visibility of a business in local search results. It involves optimising various aspects of your online presence to ensure your business is more likely to appear in local searches, particularly on search engines like Google.

Local SEO strategies often include optimising your website, managing your Google My Business profile, obtaining local citations, and encouraging positive online reviews. The goal is to connect with local customers who are searching for products or services in their geographic area.

What is Google My Business?

Google My Business is a free tool provided by Google that allows businesses to manage their online presence across Google, including Google Search and Google Maps. It enables businesses to create and verify their business listing, ensuring accurate information is displayed, such as the business name, address, phone number, hours of operation, and website.

Google My Business is a crucial component of local SEO, as it helps businesses appear in local search results and on Google Maps. It also provides a platform for customer reviews, posts, and valuable insights into online visibility.

How do online reviews impact local SEO?

Online reviews play a significant role in local SEO. Positive reviews can enhance your local search ranking and credibility, while negative reviews can have the opposite effect. Search engines, like Google, consider the quality and quantity of online reviews when determining the local search ranking of a business.

Businesses with a higher number of positive reviews tend to rank better in local search results. Additionally, reviews provide valuable information to potential customers, influencing their decisions and trust in your business. Responding to reviews, whether positive or negative, can also demonstrate your commitment to customer satisfaction, which can positively impact local SEO.

Do I need a physical store to benefit from local SEO?
Clever Clicks open accordion icon Clever clicks close accordion icon

Having a physical store can certainly benefit from local SEO, but it’s not a strict requirement. Local SEO is about connecting with your local audience, and that can be achieved whether you have a physical location, serve customers at their locations (e.g., a service area business), or operate purely online. In the absence of a physical store, you can still optimise your online presence to target local customers and improve your local search visibility.
