If you are not attracting as many local customers through your SEO campaigns as you would love to, take a look at this list to see if you are committing one(or several) of these local SEO mistakes.
Not Listed on Google My Business
If you have a local store and not on Google My Business yet, you are losing out on potential customers who could have come to your store through a simple Google Maps search. Setting up a Google My Business profile will get your store displayed on Google Maps, and best of all, it’s totally free.
Prospective customers who search for you online don’t know anything about you so they use the things available online to decide if you are trustworthy or not. Don’t have Google My Business Profile with no reviews. Encourage happy customers to leave a review if they can.
No Contact Information Listed on the Website
Customers need to be able to find you in case they need support. For any kind of business, listing accurate contact information will help boost your credibility ten times. On the contrary, having a business site with no contact information is a big red flag to many prospective customers.
Thin Website Content
You may think it’s enough to set up a simple 5-page website to build an online brand, but it’s not. Google ranks your site based on how updated your content is. To compete in the SEO game, you’d better set up a blog and post regularly. Make sure everything you write is useful and high-quality though.
