Local SEO Philadelphia

I read this great article recently about Local SEO. If you are a Local Business owner in Philadelphia or anywhere in the US you or your website person must read this article. Local SEO is extremely important to your Local Business. I like how Matthew Barby summed up so much of what I have been trying to get across to my own Local clients. Local SEO or local search engine optimization is different from other forms of SEO. Essentially you are going to focus your efforts on a smaller amount of people. This means less competition and therefor much easier to get ranked higher. Pick a few towns or cities in your local area and start building out content around them. However before you get started, do some searches for your business name and address. Make sure you see that all the places where you are found have the exact same NAP – Name, Address and Phone.

Reviews and why you NEED them for Local SEO.

Reviews – Love them or hate them, online reviews play a huge role in how consumers buy from local business.

Lets start by breaking down a typical search by a consumer. You have a need for a plumber, maybe a Lawyer. You might reach out to social media or call a friend asking if they can recommend someone. So you may or may not have located anyone from a referral. So next step would be to do a search in the local area… something similar to “Plumber Philadelphia”or “Laywer Philadelphia”. You slide down to the business listings….now here is the important part….YOU click on the business with the most leads and the highest ratings. The Most leads and HIGHEST ratings. Why do we emphasize “MOST leads and HIGHEST ratings” because you need those reviews.

Even if you got a referral you are still going to check reviews…without the reviews their is not enough information to make an informed educated decision if you can TRUST the business.

In a recent conversation with Google they said the amount of reviews you have and the star rating has an impact on how you rank on the business listings. Other factors include verifying and completely filling out the “info” section at Google my Business.  Once set up don’t change the info in Google My Business. Making sure you regularly log into Google My Business. Using Google My Business to respond to each review. Adding photos was also important – for more from Google read here https://support.google.com/business/answer/7091?hl=en
