FAQs

How does Local SEO work?​

Implementing local SEO takes time, but the end result is always worth it. Local SEO works through the process of businesses optimising their websites based on their target locations and Google recognising this in their crawls. For example, if a website had a strong number of links pointing to their website with locational anchor text, Google would take note of this and the chances of that website ranking higher would be made more strong.

To gather information and data for local search, search engines such as Google rely on local content, profile pages and citations, for example, to provide the most relevant local search results for the user. It’s important to note that local SEO doesn’t only apply to Google, but all search engines. This being said, Google is the main target with their portion of market shares, so this is where we would put most of our energy into.

To know what search engines are looking for, local SEO keyword research is essential. Whilst it may be time-consuming, it is imperative to understand what users are looking for and how they are doing it. Without keyword research, it is much more difficult to roadmap where your efforts should be focussed.

Why is Local SEO important to your business?

If your business is based in a relatively large town or city, good local SEO performance should be a key part of your digital strategy to attract people in your geographic area searching for the services that you offer.
