Frequently Asked Questions
Why is Local SEO important to my business and why should I care?
Because 46% of searches are local and 44% of searchers click the top 3 results in Maps while only 8% click through to see more local results. If you’re in the top 3, you’re going to get a lot of calls or walk-ins. If you’re not, your competitors who have invested in local SEO are going to get them.
What does Google My Business (GMB) have to do with SEO for my website?
There are a few key differences between Organic SEO and Local Seo, the most important of which is Google Maps. Your GMB listing is the heart of your maps listing and whether or not local customers see it has to do with how well optimized it is, both on your site and in the GMB listing.
Do you guarantee you can get my business to the first position in search?
Nope. It’s called Search Engine “Optimization” for a reason. We’re constantly keeping up with the latest developments in search and SEO so we can optimize your business so, hopefully, search engines will rank it. We have some really cool tricks to make that happen but, ultimately, it’s all up to the algorithms.
I’m already ranked on the first page of Google, why should I Invest in local SEO?
Things can, and do, change overnight. Algorithms are constantly being updated and your competitors are eager to get you out of that coveted spot. Depending on how competitive your industry is, chances are good the top three listings in maps are already using top-notch SEO companies.
Why do you have to do work on my website in order to make it rank in maps?
Believe it or not, about 70% of what it takes to get into the top 3 maps listings (aka “Snack Pack) happens on your site, not in your GMB listing. Even more important than that, you can drive all the traffic in the world to your website but if it’s not optimized for users they’ll click away and go to your competitor.
How does Google decide who gets into the top three spots in maps?
Well, nobody knows for certain because it’s Google’s secret sauce. But experience suggests there are three primary criteria: proximity, prominence and geolocal relevancy. In plain English, how trusted, how close and how relevant to your search term are the potential results decide who gets shown.
