5 Local SEO Tips For Your Business

Solomon Thimothy - January 7, 2010

Local businesses can easily gain eyes to their website by making sure their local search engine marketing is where it could be with a few simple steps.


  1. Claim your listing on major search engines.
    This is a simple step, but it is also very important. Claiming your business listing at Google, Yahoo, and Bing will give your company exposure and imrpove your rankings.
  2. Make sure you are listed in the correct categories.
    Having your business correctly listed is important in targeted searches. Making sure the mapping is correct and updating your listing can help with your searches.
  3. Keep your business information consistent.
    Having your information match up throughout the web helps Google know that the information is correct and relevant. This also means not keyword stuffing your titles because that makes the information look incorrect to Google.
  4. Have Analytics on your website.
    It is important to have Analytics for your site so you can see exactly what keywords bring in traffic, and what pages of your site are helping or hurting your turnover. By watching these statistics, you can figure out exactly how to imrpove your website.
  5. Check out the competition.
    Look at both natural and local search results for your targeted keywords and see who shows up. See how your competition lists their businesses and see if you can apply any of that to your company.

These are basic steps every company should take in order to make sure your business ranks better in search engines, brings more eyes to your company, and eventually brings in more business.
