The importance of local SEO for your business
While many small businesses take on the responsibility doing their own SEO, data and measurement aren’t their forte and they have no idea what type of numbers to look for. A local SEO company can provide a myriad of data to both inform and implement your SEO strategy within the best SEO packages. It’s not just your website that needs a little boosting, but all of your digital efforts.
Even if you’ve done your research and picked the perfect keywords for your website, the traffic you receive on a monthly basis isn’t always good. For instance, we were once looking to work with a client in Loveland, Colorado called Affordable Plumbing. On average, their website got about 500 visitors which is a good amount of traffic for a local plumbing SEO effort. However, when we dug deeper, what we found was that because of their name, much of their traffic was coming from across the country. In addition to that, the searchers which were coming to their website were simply bargain shopping and seldom actually turning into a customer.
Without a local SEO company, you won’t have the local insights to help you understand the exact reason why your website is not doing well in the search engines.
