Local SEO Proposal
Google statistics speak volumes when it comes to how people search for local business listings:
If your business is in Calgary Alberta for instance, and you want to reach online customers in and around that area, then Calgary search engine optimization would include optimizing your website for neighbouring communities like Airdrie, Cochrane and Okotoks.
Edmonton SEO efforts would include optimizing communities like Sherwood Park and St Albert. Vancouver local SEO efforts would optimize for places like Richmond, Surrey, Coquitlam, Burnaby and the Fraser Valley. And, Toronto local SEO would include places like Mississauga, North York, Brampton and Markham.
Local search engine optimization lets you reach the people who are specifically looking for a local business like you.
Using the same principles as regular SEO, local search engine optimization goes one step further to optimize for location specific keyword phrases.
Local SEO keyword phrases are descriptive – for example “Mexican restaurants Calgary”. The keyword phrase describes:
The search engines can tell from the searchers’ IP address where the searcher is located and then deliver “location specific” results (even if the city or neighborhood is not part of the search phrase).
Google and other search engines prefer to deliver local search results because they want to improve the user experience and deliver the most relevant results possible based on the searcher’s location.
Conduct a local search on Google and in most cases “maps” are included in the search results. Do you want your website to be found there to?
A Google+ Local Listing (formerly known as Google Places) is a great way is a great way to support your local search optimization strategy.
Google+ Local is essentially an “online local business listing”, very similar to yellow pages except it is online and registered with Google.
With a Google+ Local Listing you are helping your local customers to easily find you online through local search while promoting your business within your local community at the same time.
Whenever someone within your local area makes a relevant local search, the search engines can tell by their IP address that they are regional (located near you) and will display your listing (and local map) near the top.
