What is local SEO & local search?

Google’s job is to give its users the most relevant results possible, so if you were searching for a plumbing company in Noosa, but you got results in Maroochydore, you’d be less than impressed. Local search engine optimisation is making sure you’re listed on Google’s map results, and ideally ranking highly. Your business needs to be optimised for local search results; this means pinning you on the map, ensuring all search terms (keyword research) is optimised into your Google Business Profile account’s content. That means displaying and optimising your products or services for local users to find. Aside from this, Thinkroom’s local SEO service will build you a strategy for improving your digital reputation and creating a barrier that your competitors will find hard to challenge. Thinkroom is a Sunshine Coast based local SEO company that will increase your search visibility almost immediately.

Google My Business agency

No digital marketing company solely focuses on Google My Business, so it’s not quite accurate to label anyone as a Google My business agency; however, GMB is directly related to local SEO, and local is related to your overall SEO strategy. It’s of no surprise that populating Google My Business with the right ingredients is going to assist in increasing your rankings; it’s a forum for populating a summary of information that’s similar to what’s on your website so local people can get to your information quickly. GMB also links through to Google maps, and this is essential to use correctly both on your website and to verify your location. If this isn’t set up correctly, you’re almost invisible to anyone searching for your service.

Multiple locations & local search engine optimisation

If you have multiple locations, then it’s essential to optimise your business for local search results. Franchises are the perfect example. They have multiple locations & operators in different locations and therefore need to optimise for each location. If this isn’t set up correctly, valuable opportunities are being missed. A local keyword strategy is heavily interlinked with your website content, your organic SEO strategy, and local link building. To improve your local SEO and help your business rank, it’s ideal that you engage a digital marketing agency with SEO experts who understand the relationship between the two.

Google loves to rank businesses that optimise for local search because it improves Google’s user experience. It should be a no-brainer within any digital strategy or SEO specialist.

Technical SEO specialists

Technical SEO has a role to play in building your local rankings too. If your website’s not structured correctly, or if location schemas aren’t installed and populated, then Google will favour your competitors – the websites for local search results that do these tasks. Your local search rankings should be a major factor in your overall SEO campaigns. Your website’s product pages should reflect the content within your Google Business Profile account and a feed of your Google reviews using the correct schemas should be in place.
