Local SEO services focus on ranking your Google My Business profile in the Google Local 3-pack or Map results.
If you have a local storefront or service-area, or your business is geographically-based in some way, then you should be investing in Local SEO.
Target Local Users by Appearing in the 3-Pack Local SEO Results
Local search results are the results that search engines return based on the searcher’s location (or their intended location)….they are a little different than regular organic results.
Local SEO: The Local 3-Pack
If you type ‘restaurants’ into Google right now, you will get a list of restaurants in your area of town….the restaurants most relevant to you geographically.
Local SEO focuses on getting your Google My Business listing into these local listings…ideally in the 3-Pack map results…for terms related to your business and services.

Setting up the infrastructure for consistently asking your clients for reviews is a powerful way to strengthen results in Local Search results. This may include a “Tell Us What You Think” page on your website, or standardized email you can send clients with instructions on how to leave a review for your business on Google, lowering the barrier to completion.
We will work with you to claim, complete and standardize citation sources. Examples of citations include Google, Facebook, Bing, Superpages, Infogroup, Localeze, CitySearch, Insider Pages, Best Of The Web, Acxiom, or YP.com.
- Structured Data
Structured Data helps search engines understand your website better. This data is behind-the-scenes code, not visible to visitors on the website, that provides specific data in a special format to search engines. This information such as Name, Address and Phone (NAP), location information, descriptive information, and reviews reinforce search engine’s confidence in your company’s identity, leading to the opportunity to rank higher.
