Local SEO Sydney – Google Locally

Local SEO

Local SEO.

Local SEO is one thing that Google has got exactly right. Previously when someone would search for, for example “Restaurant Burwood” it was possible for large strong famous restaurants with no relevancy to the local area to come in on top and crowd the results. Further to this many web searchers would for example just search for “restaurant” and have restaurants from all over australia and the world returned to them.

Google now detects the location of the user and puts a great emphasis on location keywords returning a separate set of results along with map listings. There are many factors that come into this ranking.

A huge factor in local seo ranking is just making sure your Google business listing is up to date, have the proper location codes in your website and that there are other links on the web that list your name and address.
There is of course much more to getting to the top but still every business that has the above 3 aspects sorted will rank on at least the second page of location results.

Our first goal with local SEO is make sure that you are in the first few results for any searches in your local area when people search for anything that your business provides.
To do this we identify what people will search for that you have an answer to. Then instantly we get these answers to the very top of Google, dominating the results.
We create a paid Google advertising campaign getting you to the very top with every combination of keywords that could be used to find your businesses products and services.
We then go to work on increasing the organic non paid Google search results to replace or complement these paid for keywords depending on your goals.

We offer the solution to dominate the search results in your local area instantly and then build up non paid traffic to replace or compliment this depending on your goals.

On day one of the campaign you will be receiving traffic.
