Local SEO Gets More Local Leads
Yext Alternative and Local SEO – Google Places + Maps!
Local SEO (Search engine optimization) and the entire SEO landscape has changed rapidly over the past 5-7 years. If you have not adapted to these changes on your own or hired a professional or savvy “seo” service to help you, your website ranking and local map pack (google places) listings will fall off and be outranked and semi-worthless.
Real local seo drives real customers to your business, phone, and website. Leads that come from local seo convert at a higher rate, they have instant trust in you (being local), and the cost per lead is cheaper than other marketing platforms (like PPC and Banner Ads).
“You Must Be Listed In The Top 3 in The “MAP PACK” on Google. Look at the image below. Google used to have 5 Map pack spots, now they have only 3 spots! You need to be listed in these top 3 spots locally to get any noticeable business, sales, or leads from Google local SEO tactics. “
Mobile phone searches and mobile searches make up a MAJOR % of searches these days so your website needs to be VERY mobile friendly. Google can tell if our website is “responsive” as in displays properly and differently on certain devices. Having a mobile friendly version or mobile friendly site is a must. Just getting listed on Google is not enough and using an automated listing service is not as effective as old fashioned manual optimized listings. This is where you want to hire an SEO and marketing team that knows the lay of the land and can get you actually results in regards to ranking locally for keywords that make BUSINESS happen. One such service is Tarp Media which is a very detail oriented SEO team that will blow your mind with the ideas and tricks they have. It is almost like they work at Google due to the fact that they have manipulated Google in such a ay as to almost control the outcome of local search results.
