What is Local SEO?

Local SEO or "search engine optimization" refers to optimizing your website and other online content so that your business shows up in search engines whenever someone makes a relevant local inquiry. For example, someone is suddenly hungry for tacos and types in "tex mex" or "Mexican restaurant" in their Google Maps search box.

If your restaurant is properly optimized, then it will appear among the top rank on Google Maps. A local SEO agency helps to ensure your business hits on all search engines. This includes Bing, Yelp, Google Maps, Apple Maps, and, of course, Google so that when you say "Google my business" your business will be at the top. 

Still not sure how local SEO can help? Consider this:

  • 88% of searches for local business on a mobile device will result in either a call or in-person visit to that business within 24 hours
  • 72% of those who typed in a local search ended up visiting a store within five miles of their location.
  • Nearly 50% of ALL Google searches are done in order to find local information
  • In two years, "near me" and "close by" style searches grew by more than 900% -- people want to find new local businesses near them
