What is Local SEO?

When users search for products, services, or businesses near their specific physical location (think “pizza place near me”), your business has the opportunity to show up on local search results associated with that query. An effective local SEO strategy optimizes your website for local searches so you are found by potential customers in your geographic area.

Nearby businesses such as restaurants, salons, coffee shops, and cleaning services can benefit from the power of high-performing local SEO services that help them outrank the competition. Remember: If you’re not ranking for local queries, your competitors certainly are. Taking a comprehensive approach to your local SEO strategy ensures your brand ranks for all relevant “near me” and geo-specific searches. This is an essential service for any local business, regardless of industry.

Your trusted local SEO company should also help you optimize your Google My Business listing, create location-specific landing pages, and build local citations. Additionally, other essential optimization tactics include strong on-page SEO, strategic content marketing, and high-quality link-building.

Local SEO Services


If your customer base is local, you need a firm understanding of their search behaviors so you can outrank the competition when they are searching for nearby or “near me” products or services. An effective local SEO strategy starts with keyword research to identify the top opportunities for you to optimize your web content for geo-specific and industry-related search queries.

We utilize our cutting-edge digital marketing technology and tools to look at real-time search data to understand top-ranking web pages and the keywords they are ranking for. The goal is to select the right focus keywords that each of your web pages will be optimized for based on their relevance, monthly search volume, and local searchers’ intent — which includes the following:

  • Informational: Looking for information
  • Navigational: Trying to visit a specific website
  • Transactional: Ready to make a purchase

While local SEO is much more than just setting up and optimizing your company’s Google My Business (GMB) listing, it is a critical component of an effective local SEO strategy. Rely on our exceptional local SEO services to claim, verify, create, and edit your GMB listing to achieve the following:

  • Brand uniformity across online business listings (including social media profiles)
  • Display accurate, up-to-date details about your name, address, and phone number (NAP)
  • Feature website link, business hours, photos, and engaging business description that is optimized for local search
  • Select relevant business categories and subcategories
  • Utilize GMB posts to promote your products, events, offers, and more
  • Monitor and respond to all business reviews
  • Maintain your GMB listing with regular updates to ensure 24/7 real-time accuracy

It’s not enough to just publish an SEO-friendly website with great content. Search engines also depend on off-page ranking signals, including links, when determining the credibility of a website or business. Links from quality external websites pointing to yours are essentially votes of confidence in your brand, therefore increasing your site’s authority. Another benefit of link-building is earning relevant and local referral traffic — other websites linking to yours can lead your target audience directly to your brand.

When it comes to link building, you need a highly-skilled local SEO company you can trust. Link-building is easy when poorly done, but this can put your website at risk, as black-hat techniques and links from low-quality websites can do more harm than good. At 42connect, we deploy only white-hat link-building strategies, ensuring the links we generate are natural and from high-authority websites. Don’t neglect the value of this critical local SEO activity or put your website in the wrong hands.


Google My Business is not the only citation that your business needs to manage effectively to attract local traffic. We help clients like you build and manage local citations on third-party sites so searchers can access the most accurate information about your business. Our team of local SEO experts can help you publish business data across the most popular online directories, including Yelp, Yellowpages, TripAdvisor, Apple Maps, and many more.

Citation management is a core component of our local SEO services because it helps us accomplish the following:

  • Ensure all of your business listings are up-to-date
  • Share your business data (i.e. Contact information, payment options, etc.) to the most authoritative directories
  • Suppress duplicate citations
  • Amplify your business’ online visibility

As your go-to local SEO company, we will ensure your on-page SEO receives the attention it requires. To create and maintain an efficient, SEO-focused website, you need to constantly update your optimization efforts. Increase your local business’ search visibility with our award-winning on-page optimization services.

Our results-driven strategy includes optimizing your page titles, title tags, meta descriptions, and URLs for geo-specific search queries. We ensure your SEO content is crafted within an optimized page structure that includes headers presented within a clear hierarchy (i.e., H1s, H2s, H3s, and H4s, etc.). It’s also essential that your website’s technical elements are working efficiently so you can effectively improve your site ranking potential.

Site health issues like page speed, responsive design, internal linking, and crawl errors should be monitored and addressed regularly. Doing so will enable Google and other search engines to crawl and index your site properly — and for your website to offer a user-friendly experience for your visitors. Another on-page service we offer is to tap into the power of local business schema markups so searchers can interact with essential data about your business before they click into your website.
