Local SEO is a specific strategy of Search Engine Optimization and an important internet marketing strategy for companies that operate in specific geographical locations and want to attract business directly from their local online communities.
High number of people search the internet looking for local businesses that can fulfill their needs, whether they are looking for the best price on a set of new tyres for their car, a specific restaurant for a meal or need to find somewhere where they can buy a special present such as a t-shirt printed with a picture of a jellyfish.
Surveys show that over 80 % of products researched in this way result in a purchase, either online or offline. This is backed up by both Google and Bing indicating that more than 20% of all desktop search queries are considered as local in nature and that number rises to about 50% for mobile devices. It is expected that these numbers will only increase so it is easy to see why local search is becoming more of a priority for many businesses.
Research also shows people, through either desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone, use search engines first to find information online.
With a clamour to be highly visible by just about every local business to gain some of this business opportunity, getting your business seen can become more of a challenge.
This problem is a much bigger issue for smaller local businesses with tighter budgets than their larger rivals, especially if they do not have a bricks and mortar shop to rely on for passing traffic and awareness.
Furthermore small businesses need to have ways to keep their online presence up to date as Google, Bing, Yahoo and other search engines are continually changing the rules as to who gets seen in a search and who does not.
