In just a few short years, the concept of Local Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has moved to the forefront of digital marketing. Consumers around the world research the businesses around them before making purchasing decisions, and having a robust local presence on search engines is critical in gaining new customers.

Local SEO is the concept of optimizing websites and web properties for local search. This includes strategies like adding local keywords, creating Google My Business listings, and adding so-called “NAP” (Name, Address, Phone Number) to existing webpages. If implemented correctly, the end result is a robust online presence that appears at the top of organic search listings as well as in Google Maps, one of the first places potential customers look to identify businesses around them.
The Internetzone I Difference
In today’s search landscape, Google Maps results are positioned above organic search results. By optimizing for local search, including Google Maps visibility, companies that leverage these techniques have a distinct advantage over competitors. Internetzone I can help create incredible visibility in search.
The process begins with an analysis of a company’s current standing in search, particularly in Google Maps visibility. Keyword research is then conducted, including long-tail terms that relate to the company’s operations, service delivery, and products.
The next step is to begin creating optimized content. This content can take several forms, including profile information that is optimized for Google Maps. Web 2.0 properties are also created, including citations and targeted keywords to improve search visibility. Video content is weighted heavily in the Google search algorithm, so we create a short highlight video of your company’s products/services.
Google My Business (GMB) is a free service that helps to boost rankings in local search. The initial setup of a profile, including optimization, often requires the skill of our experienced digital marketing and SEO specialists. By creating a profile on GMB and optimizing it, including the company’s contact details and physical location, this profile works hand-in-hand with Google Maps.

Local SEO is a low-risk/high reward tool that allows companies to connect with customers in their areas.
