Here's Why Local SEO is Critical for Your Business

Local SEO is the art of getting your business to show up where your customers are actually looking.

Scenario: Let’s say you’re a dentist in downtown Seattle. Due to the nature of your business, most of your customers probably come from your surrounding area. That means anyone in your immediate neighborhood is key to your business’ growth. So how do you make sure your neighbors find you?

Local SEO! Here are some facts about how Local SEO works:

  • The local search results change depending on where you search from or where you search for. If you search for “dentist Seattle” you’ll get one set of results, if you search for “dentist Ballard” you’ll get another set of results.
  • Just like in real estate, your business’ physical location has a lot to do with how and where you appear in the results.
  • The maps that appear on local search are 4x more likely to convert into a paying customer than other sources.
  • Reviews on your local listings are important! Gather as many as you can using our Review App.
  • Any business that is local and serves local customers can benefit from Local SEO. This includes brick and mortar businesses (think retail, lawyers, dentists, etc.) as well as service area businesses (think HVAC, construction, plumbing, roofing, etc.).

The Right Strategy Helps Local Customers Find You

Your customers are out there searching for you but it’s up to you to help them find you.

If your financial support comes from a shrinking collection of regular customers, you might as well say goodbye to sustainable business growth. Since search engines have all but replaced the phone book, showing up on the third page of results is like opening your business in the middle of the woods and not telling people where to find it.

Fortunately, you have us. As a full service Digital Marketing Agency Odd Dog Media provides a friendly and personalized approach to ensure local customers find your website through local SEO. That’s what makes us a small business’ best friend.
