What are the local SEO ranking factors?
Google My Business listing
Claiming your Google My Business listing automatically ties you into Google search and Google Maps. Search for your listing on Google My Business and claim it by entering complete and accurate information about what your business does, where it’s located and more.
Good reviews make a great impression on people searching for your business. Plus, the more good reviews you gather, the more your chances increase of having Google boost your website ranking.
Be sure to regularly add content to your website (like videos, photos and captions, articles and event announcements). This content should include key local phrases and location-based terms to boost local SEO.
You’ll also get a local SEO boost when local, relevant websites link to your website. Get listed in your local community directories and events pages. Aim to get a few targeted, local links, not a huge amount of irrelevant links.
