Small Business Woes with Search

Small Business Owners Don’t Need to Fear Search with Local SEO

Sometimes small business owners are doing everything they can just to have a web presence. They figure that if they can just get a website out there, that should be enough. Then they hear about SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and figure they will never be found in a world full of businesses that are already doing SEO and trying to target the same keywords they would.

Never Fear, Local Search is here!

What small business owners don’t always know is that there is a great thing called local SEO. When someone searches in a local area local businesses should be returned in the results. Google will even display a map with listings in some cases pointing potential customers right too you. What great news, right?

How to get on the Map

To get shown in the local results the way you would like, you need to be consistent. All of your listings that are found online should be claimed and the NAP+W information (or Name, Address, Phone and Website Information) needs to exactly match your website. You need to be setup with Google tools and have Google My Business setup and verified on Google. Social media profiles are always a huge plus, especially when they list your NAP+W information as well. Not to mention social media profiles show up in search results too! Not sure if you have noticed but YouTube and even Pinterest results show up many times on page one in a search.
