We are always really excited about helping new businesses to find their feet in their own local market. Whatever your market, sector or indeed location we can help your business to thrive with our local SEO services. It is fair to say that there are many actions that apply to good national / international SEO as to local SEO. However, the priorities for both are not the same. It is important you find a partner that understands the differences and can build and implement an effective local SEO campaign.

If your business is interested in attracting local customers, then your search engine optimisation (SEO) plan needs to be geographically targeted. It’s not only about having a Google places listing, you need to engage with your local community online, raise awareness about your business, its products and services. Our local SEO services include:
Any business that is location-based and has much of their custom from the immediate area such as doctors, taxis, restaurants, solicitors, accountants, electricians, decorators, plumbers, builders, gardeners, web designers etc. This is especially important if you have a local address and a shop front where you expect people to visit. We have years of experience helping businesses with their SEO throughout Northampton and surrounding counties of Bedfordshire, Leicestershire, Cambridgeshire, Bucks and Oxfordshire with local techniques to help support their businesses achieve growth throughout their local market.
Of course your website will still need to meet a certain standard before it can be marketed, as search engines 'read' your website looking for correct layout, tags and data to interpret this into a listing. For this reason, it's important that we consider an analysis or audit of your website first.
Local SEO encompasses the management of long-tail local based search terms, generating reviews on local portals and becoming a visible contributor to the area. Visibility and local awareness are the key factors here. We need to ensure all your address details are exact across all your social media so that google (and other search engines) can recognise that all the things your doing off-page are related to the same business and the same physical address.
Identifying opportunities that may work for you in terms of sponsorship or involvement is also a great way to shout about your commitment to the area and more importantly establish your business as a name that people can trust.
With local SEO we still use social media marketing and content marketing to help get your website to stand out from the crowd and also help Google to select your website over your competition.
National SEO campaigns rely on even more on content-driven organic results and targeted pay per click campaigns.
