What is local SEO?

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. Your business needs to be optimised for local search results; this means pinning you on the map, ensuring all keyword research is written into your Google My Business content, and your link structure is correct. 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.
