Local SEO

Local SEO (Search Engine Optimise) is a valuable tool when expanding your business as it is an effective way of bringing local awareness to your company. Local SEO is a digital marketing strategy that will promote your businesses products and services to local customers when they are online searching for these items.

 

How Local SEO works

Local search is when someone in the area is looking to purchase either a product or service locally. For example, "Restaurants near me" "Best yoga studio in Belfast." When people are searching these terms, search engines understand they are looking for suggestions that are closed to their location. Search engines take this into account, and they offer the person a list of local results.
Search engines will be looking for signs of a local page when analysing sites, such as local content, social profile pages, links, and citations. The search engine will be looking for content that will be of value to the person searching.
