Understanding local search visibility strategies
What is traditional SEO versus local SEO?
Traditional search engine optimization improves a website's overall search rankings without a specific geographic focus. Local SEO may share common digital marketing strategies and goals, but it specifically targets potential customers searching for products or services within a particular local geographic area.
How does local SEO work?
Local SEO focuses on improving the online visibility and search engine rankings of a business for location-specific queries. The primary goal is to increase the visibility of a business in local search results, such as "near me" queries or searches that include a specific city or region.When people search for businesses, services, or products in their local area, search engines like Google and Bing use location-based information to deliver results that are relevant to the user's location. Local SEO involves optimizing a business's website, online content, and online presence to increase its chances of appearing in local search results for targeted keywords. Local SEO involves targeting location-specific keywords, building local backlinks and citations, optimizing Google Business Profiles, and creating content tailored to the local audience.
