What is Local SEO?
It is a combination of on/off website optimization that improves your chances when someone searches for your service in the right geographic area that your business appears in the "3-Pack" of listings below the local map.
It is critical that your business appears in Google Maps, and in local voice searches. For example if someone says "Find landscaping business near me" Google is going to use their devices location and search that local area. Those are warm leads because they are already looking for your service!
Most of these searches are done on mobile devices, so if your website isn't mobile optimized you maybe missing out.
Local SEO is different than your standard SEO. How so? If someone finds your business in search but they are in a different part of the country does that really help you get them to arrive in your place of business or call for your services?
