For many businesses it is not necessary to rank on the first page of Google or any other search engine unless the person doing the searching is from the same area where you do business. If, for example, you own a auto repair shop in Lansing, MI you don’t really want people from Florida to find your site when they do a search for “Ford Taurus Engine Repair”. This is where Local SEO can be a very affordable, yet beneficial service.
Our Local SEO packages start at $150 per month and include a wide range of different services which will help ensure you are the first site people see when they search for the your type of business in your geographic area.
- Google Places Optimization – Google paces is a service from Google which allows business owners to set up an online profile. When optimized properly this profile will then come up when people are searching for your type of business in the area. This is not only done by specific keywords like “engine repair in Lansing, MI” but also by using the GPS services on many people’s smart phones!
- Local Directory Submission – There are often a variety of different business directories online which are dedicated to either specific types of businesses, or specific geographic locations. We will find the directories which serve your local area and manually submit your business to each of them. This not only makes it easier for people to find your site, but also makes your page rank better with Google and the other search engines for their local results.
- Reputation Management – Today more than ever it is critical to manage your reputation online. An unhappy customer, or worse a competitor, can quickly get online and write up some bad reviews on your business and then others will find those negative reviews. We will actively monitor for these reviews and if they are not legitimate we will get them removed. We’ll also help you and your clients post reviews for your business in order to show you in a positive light and increase conversion.
- Mapmaker Supervision – There are many different online mapping services which allow businesses to submit their business information so it will show up right on the maps when people are looking in your area. We’ll submit your business to these services and make sure all the information that shows up on any mapping service is accurate and complete.
- Local SEO Techniques – There are over 50 different techniques that will make your Google Places listing rank higher than your competitors. Pravda SEO experts are aware of all of them and also use our personal strategies that prove to be working very successfully. There is not a single business we are working with that is not on the first page of Google results
Local SEO is one of the best returns on investment for local businesses. This is because it is a very inexpensive way to get your company in front of very targeted potential customers. Rather than putting up a billboard or radio commercial which are going to be seen mostly by people who are not interested in what you’re selling, local SEO targets only people who are actively looking for a company like yours.
