Local Search Engine Optimization

Local SEO:  You think Facebook is big?  Well, Google is even bigger . . . and people use it to find the things they need or want.  Can they find you?  Can they find your competitors?

Local SEO services are often overlooked by small business owners.  You don’t understand the concepts and opt for more “sexy” avenues like social media.  While social media is great, Google still rules the Internet . . . and the people who are searching right now expect to find what they’re looking for right now.  Will they find you?  Search traffic is your most powerful marketing tool of any kind – let’s make sure you get found in search results!

87% of people who search for a local business call or go to that type of business within 24 hours.

We take care of the core pillars of Local SEO:

Website

The centerpiece to your organic rankings.  We take care of all your onsite SEO from on-page, to technical issues, to UX, and much more.

Google My Business Listing

Google My Business is a critical part of getting visibility locally.  We can create your listing or fully optimize existing listings, along with advanced troubleshooting via direct contact with the Google My Business team.

Aggregators/Citations

We create manual submissions on the top aggregator and citation sources, along with city and industry specific citation sources.  Along with NAP cleanup and duplicate suppression.

Links

We build genuine local backlinks based on your relationships, competitors, local analysis, and manual outreach – giving you hyper-relevant local inbound links that count.

Reviews

Reviews are the cornerstone to creating trust with potential customers.  Our turnkey review system with SMS feature will get you reviews quickly and effectively.

Analytics & Conversion Tracking

Once we have setup a solid Local SEO foundation, we implement our analytics and feedback system with its 9-step tracking process for delivering amazing insights about the way people reach the site and interact with it. These valuable insights in part formulate our data-driven SEO task list starting from month 7.

18 manual hours a month (working on the most important areas in the core pillars above)
2x articles per month (front loaded, 12 articles every 6 months)
Fully branded SMS review funnel (for easy review collection)
Monthly reporting

What the heck does all this mean?

We understand.  Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a complicated thing to understand.  The nutshell explanation is this:  your customers are searching for you online, and if they’re not searching for you specifically, they are searching for your products and services.  We spend lots of time in lots of areas to make it as easy as possible for your customers to find you instead of your competition.

Tested & Proven Techniques

Some SEO companies get carried away with the latest fad or “gaming Google technique” instead of actually spending the time to get your core building blocks in place.  What we described above are the core building blocks of Local SEO.  We have taken lots of time and effort to create this system to cover all the key areas of Local SEO.  The bottom line is this:

With our services, you get a solid foundation, ongoing optimization, and simple reporting . . . all in a simple, flat-fee service.  The only thing you need to focus on is running your business.

Need Something More Affordable?

If these plans are a little out of your reach, then take a look at our Review Management service.  Because online customer reviews are so important to Local SEO, we include Review Management in our Local SEO service.  However, we’ve pulled it out and can offer it as a separate service with a much smaller price tag.  This will give you a good start . . . and you can upgrade to a full Local SEO service later.

487% No. 1 ranking increase over a 4-month period

No. 1 Rankings:  From 8 to 47 – an increase of 487%

Rankings 2 – 5:  From 27 to 48 – an increase of 77%

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Don't You Do Backlinks?

We would be lying if we said backlinks aren’t important, they are! However when it comes to the local search engines, having a hand full of high quality links that are built on genuine relationships from the you within your community will produce ranking results way beyond anything an SEO company could produce by forcing regular backlinks to a website.

How Long Does It Take To Rank?

We cannot in all honesty give an absolute time frame for you. In fact you should be very wary of any SEO company who guarantees ranking positions or time-scales. The truth is that Google doesn’t actually let people know what its ranking factors are, only that there are many. The one thing that we can guarantee is that we will implement the best industry-leading strategies and abide by Google guidelines and terms of service.

Do You Offer Weekly Reports?

No, we offer monthly reporting. We find because SEO isn’t usually just a smooth steady climb week by week, showing you an average of the progress over a month is a much better visualization of how your website is moving forward.

Do I Have to Sign A Contract?

We have a short (easy-to-understand) terms of service agreement that you should read before making your first payment. This is a month-to-month service, and we mainly have the agreement in place to establish the requirement of a 30-day cancellation notice.
