More and more searchers (especially on mobile devices) are looking for local businesses like yours. Local SEO can help your business stand out, but is your business rising to the top of organic results or getting lost in the dust?
What Is Local SEO?
So first of all, let’s get clear about what local SEO and local search mean. When I talk about local seo/search I’m talking about Google Maps, Google Places, Yelp, and all of the other dozens of local directories.
Here’s the main thing you need to know. Local SEO/search is complicated and that’s why local businesses often fail to do it successfully. Want to know why your competitors show up in Google searches above you? They got more of the listing details correct. Their listing and reviews convince people that their business is better than yours…whether it’s true or not.

I can help you use local ranking factors like name, address and phone number (NAP) and customer reviews to rise to the top of organic results and even get featured in the carousel.
