33% Increase in online transactions

Our clients receive an average increase of 33% in online transactions. For Attorneys that would be more clients looking to inquire about legal services with their firm. For Accountants, more clients looking to file tax returns or receive accounting reviews/audits.  For restaurants and retail, our clients receive more foot traffic to their local stores.

56% Revenue increase

Position1.com helps it’s clients achieve a minimum 56% increase in overall revenue during a 6-12 month period of engagement.  Some of our Legal clients have obtained so much Local business and inquiries, they’ve actually asked us to slow down the process because they can’t keep up with the workload.  Position1.com helped one small clothing store in LA become known in almost every top city in California by introducing Local City/State pages to their website, allowing them to be found for clothing anywhere in the state.

148% Increase in organic traffic

Local traffic after engagement with the majority of our clients has increased 148% within a 30-60 day test period.  For some website google can take anywhere from 2 weeks, 30 days or 60 days to index new pages and content, so local SEO city/state pages need at least 60 days to gauge maximum effectiveness. However, once they are indexed by Google and we continue to grow the content with articles, guides, and blog posts, the organic traffic can grow considerably.

46% Increase in mobile traffic

We put the same emphasis on Mobile/Tablet Local SEO traffic as we do for Desktop. Google may index and display your mobile pages better or worse than your desktop landing pages, so we optimize for a responsive design and include adjustments for Mobile Friendly local seo, so you are page 1 on local searches too.

What is Local SEO Marketing?

Local SEO (Local Search Engine Optimization), sometimes referred to as local search engine marketing, is an incredibly effective way to market your local business online, as it helps businesses promote their products and services to local customers at the exact time they’re looking for them online.

This is achieved through a variety of methods, some of which differ greatly from what’s practiced in standard SEO, and some of which are far easier to manage using local SEO tools and can require specific local SEO services.

What is a ‘Local Search’?

Whereas anyone in the world with good enough SEO and authority can rank for a search query like ‘how to fix a blocked drain’, when the query has much more purchase intent behind it, it becomes ‘plumbers near me’ or ‘best plumber in [location]’.

For these types of search query, which typically include a location or ‘near me’ (which aren’t even necessary if searching using Google Maps or if Google knows your location and assumes the search has local intent), search engines understand that what the searcher wants is business suggestions or lists based on location, and so that’s precisely what they offer up in the local search engine results pages (SERPs). This difference in behaviour and result is precisely why local SEO is important and worth investing in alongside standard SEO.

What is Local SEO?

Local Search Engine Optimization (or local SEO) is the process of ranking websites through geo-targeted keywords, localized content, citation building, and claiming local business listings. Local SEO is an effective strategy for local mom-and-pop shops, brick-and-mortar stores, or businesses with physical locations that operate in a specific area.

How does local SEO work?

Local SEO helps the website be more visible to customers within their geographical area, so they appear as the most relevant on local search results. This happens when search engines pull business information from different sources, such as online directories, local newspaper websites, blogs, local forums, and review websites. Websites rank well on local search results through the following elements: proximity of the business to the search user, the relevance of the business to the search query, and prominence or what customers say about the business.

How long before my clients see an improvement in their rankings?

A typical amount of time your clients can expect to see positive ranking movement is anywhere from 1-3 months. Additionally, your clients can attain first page rankings in an estimated 6-8 months (8-12 months for a competitive market). Our in-house team of SEO experts will assess your project during the keyword and website analysis phase to determine a reasonable expectation.

What is the difference between Organic SEO and Local SEO?

Local SEO targets a local niche meaning your target market is within a few miles from your business. Additionally, your online presence is designed to bring foot traffic to an actual establishment. By contrast, the online presence of a business interested in Organic SEO is designed to generate revenue online or establish a wider audience therefore, Organic SEO targets a much larger audience geographically.

Why is Local SEO important?

Local SEO can help businesses become more discoverable to their customers. This is supported by a few stats:

  • 50% of users doing a local search visited a physical store within a day.
  • 18% of local searches on mobile lead to a sale within a day.
  • 78% of users say they search for a business’ location before visiting their physical store for the first time.

How much does local SEO cost?

Local SEO costs can range from $500 to $10,000 per strategy or month. This will depend on the inclusions of the service: on-page SEO, localized content optimization, backlinks and local citation building, review management, and Google My Business setup and optimization. Talk to Position1.com to determine the scope of the services and align the cost with your budget.
