Maximize Your Visibility with Local SEO

Local SEO helps your business grow in your community. When you compete locally, you attract local businesses and consumers who work and live right around the corner.  

Local consumers are more likely to return and make long-lasting relationships. It all starts with local SEO.

Why is Local SEO Important? 

Local SEO helps you form a strong online foundation for your business.  

Here are some reasons why local SEO is important:

  1. Using location-based keywords helps you stand out from the competition. 
  2. Having your business listed on maps will allow for more calls and site visits.
  3. Stay competitive with neighboring businesses in your industry.
  4. Cut down on long-term pay-per-click advertising costs.
  5. Earn trust over time through higher search engine rankings.

How to Improve Your Local SEO 

Improving your local SEO doesn’t have to be complicated. Legend Web Works starts by setting up and optimizing local listings including Google Business Profile, Bing Maps, Apple Business Connect, and other similar profiles to make it easy for local consumers to find you online.  

Another important step is improving online reputation through proactive review requests and Google review moderation.  

Local citations help build brand awareness, and improving local SEO is as simple as setting up online business directories and promoting brand awareness on social media.

Google Business Profile (GBP)

Google Business Profile (formerly known as Google My Business or GMB) is today’s premiere online directory. One of the biggest advantages of GBP is the ability to receive reviews from your clients so they can share their experiences. GBP also makes it easy for your customers to easily find all the information they need to make an informed purchase or decision to choose you including: 

  • Business address
  • Phone number
  • Hours of operation
  • Website information
  • Services
  • Products

Apple Business Connect 

Apple Business Connect helps you manage, measure, and grow your business with ease. Like GBP, Apple Business Connect allows consumers to quickly find and gather your business’s information so readers can find you on Maps, Apple Wallet, Siri, and more. You can even include text, images, and offers to entice customers into visiting your business or purchasing products.  

Bing Maps 

While many businesses tend to overlook Bing Maps, it's a highly effective tool that can help get your business name in front of potential customers. With a large number of users relying on Bing Maps every day, it's essential to ensure that your business is listed on this platform to reach a wider audience. Bing Maps makes finding your business easy for customers. They know how to get to your business and all the relevant information they will need when they arrive.
