Local SEO Services

Specifically designed to help small, local businesses get found online.

You have a business that needs clients and customers. The most efficient way to continually drive your ideal clients and customers to your business is with local SEO.

You do this by letting Google know that you exist so that your professional and engaging website comes up when customers in your area are searching for the services you provide.

When Google knows someone is searching with “local intent”, ie. they are most likely looking for a local business, Google looks at your “Local SEO Signals”. An SEO signal is simply something that Google can find online about your business or website, measure it, and use it in their algorithm.

That’s where we come in. I have assembled a team of experienced, professional digital marketers who specialize in SEO. We will work on an ongoing basis to ensure all necessary steps are taken to get your business on page 1 of Google.

Our Local SEO Process: The “Blocks”

Local SEO is a process. Like building a website or building a house, Local SEO is a series of tasks that need to be completed. We’ve put all the tasks associated with Local SEO into a series of “blocks”, or lists of tasks.

  1. Our first 12 blocks are the building blocks for your Local SEO Foundation.
  2. Then we move to our Ongoing Optimization Process. This is where we continue to optimize your web presence to get your rankings up even higher, get more keywords to page one, and improve the traffic you get from your Google My Business account.

The number of blocks needed each month largely depends on:

  1. How many pages you have on your website
  2. How many competitors you have
  3. How many locations you have

View our pricing packages to help you determine the plan that’s best for you, or schedule a call and we can walk you through it.

Local SEO Is Constantly Changing

We Work To Keep Your Rankings

While the process below outlines the basic blocks of work that we perform to improve your organic rankings in your local area, it is important to understand that we are also working constantly to adapt to Google’s constantly changing algorithms. We have to monitor the changes in the world of SEO and defend your business’s ranking against these changes. You’re not just buying these blocks. You’re also getting a team of SEO experts that are on the lookout for changes in Google’s Local SEO algorithms.

Google makes over 400 changes to its SEO algorithms every year. It would be very difficult and very time-consuming for the average business owner to monitor and react to these changes. So in addition to our Local SEO Blocks, we also monitor and make adjustments to our client’s websites to defend your rankings against Google’s latest changes to their SEO algorithms.
