Local SEO For Your Business

Local SEO
Local SEO is an extension of SEO but it is focused on giving the users results that are more relevant to their current location. However, it is an incredibly effective way to boost local business.

Because SEO focuses on ranking I search in across the nation or globally but local SEO focus on targeted local consumers or buyer who live in the same area. This is the best way to promote brand, products & services to local leads and customers.

Let me give you a good example:

If you search “Cheese” on google the SERP (Search Engine Result Page) look something like this:

The SERP gives information about cheese, how it’s produced and nutrition facts. Google shows me all the information related to cheese.

Now, let’s search a term that shows the location in which I am. Let’s say we search for “Cheese near me”.

The SERP now look like this:

Now Google shows me the shops or brands which are near me and from where I can buy Cheese. This happens when I type in a location-based query and this wouldn’t have been possible if google had no idea about where these shops are located.

So how google get the information about these brands or shops if those are not given? That is the destiny of local SEO. As information about your business or brands is given to google through local SEO, your business shows up on the result when a user keys in a location-based query. When information is given to google its algorithm simply arrange them in a certain order. So there is a way to make sure that your shop or brand can show up on top of the results when the consumer searches business like yours.

Top local SEO tools:

1. Google Analytics
2. Google Search Console
3. Moz
4. Google keyword planner

Those are the best user-friendly SEO tools for Keyword Research and other Seo works that are available in google or the market.
