** Placements on Google Maps is very effective. **

 

2. Google My Business Categories

You may choose up to 5 categories. Begin with the most general and drill down.

Photos uploaded to your Google My Business page are a strong local ranking factor. You also may want to add longitude and latitude to the photos.

 

4. Bing Places

Claim a Bing business listing.

5. Submit Information To Big, Local, and Niche Citation Directories

Local SEO citations could make a difference in local SEO rankings. Ensure you Business Name, Address & Phone (NAP) are accurate and use the same info everywhere.

 

6. Listings on Review Sites

Yelp, FourSquare, Angie’s List, BBB, etc.

 

7. Increase # Of Positive Reviews

Google says it is okay to request a review but don’t incentive it.

 

8. Reviews with Responses Matter

Respond to every review. Say “thank you for your business” or “it was a pleasure working for you.”

 

9. Respond To Negative Reviews In A Customer Friendly Way

Respond to negative reviews in a professional and business-like way and seek to resolve the issue. Users can change their rating of you.

 

10. Facebook Business Pages & Groups

11. Social Listings

12. Responsive Website

Google uses a “mobile-first” index to rank websites. 65% of Google’s searches come from a mobile phone.

 

13. Schema Markup Code

Google recommends SCHEMA and JSON-LD for local SEO. Visitors do not see your code. Google processes the code to better understand your site.

 

14. Improve Website Speed

In July 2018 Google implemented a “speed update” to its algorithm which penalizes slower sites. Searchers expect a site to full load in under 3-4 seconds on their mobile phone even though the average website loads in 7 seconds or longer.

 

15. On-Page Local Content

Create content where you can include your main keywords, synonyms, related keywords, and local keywords.

 

16. Title & Meta Descriptions Should Include Geo-Keywords

Use local keywords in your META Titles, descriptions, and HTML headers.

Links from sites Google trusts and considers authoritative and reliable sites.

You’ll want a broad range of inbound links that are relevant, are authoritative, and not just from a handful of sites.

Links from local news sites, community blogs, charities, etc. These will help to prove trustworthiness.

 

20. Locals & Keywords in Anchor Texts

Inbound links from high authority sites using both your city and main keywords are like gold.
