1How do my directory listing affect my local search rankings online?
Simply put, one of the things that has made Google more successful than any other search engine is their ability to provide quality information to search users. With this in mind search engines attempt to rank websites and local search results based on many different pieces of data. The more accurate your data is online about your business the better while inaccuracies will cost you valued traffic your business wants.
2Do I need a mobile friendly website?
Absolutely yes, it is clear that Google has pretty much leveled websites that are not mobile responsive from showing up in Google search. If you have two websites and one is just another version of your main one then this is also the wrong way to run a website that wants search engine traffic. Google offers a free website mobile test that you can find through a quick search online.
3Does my business need a Google My Business Page?
If you offer your goods or services to a localized customer base or want people to find you in your area when searching what you offer then yes. If you sell products online only or are a large company clients order from then possibly not but it still couldn't hurt. This is a free page for your business which our marketing team optimizes as part of our basic local search engine optimization services.
4Should I use Social Media to market my business.
Social signals from powerful social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Pinterest are an excellent way to boost your search engine optimization efforts. Also, many opportunities exist online in social media platforms your business can convert into revenue. While true social media marketing from a company like ours can be pricey, we do some limited marketing for all of our clients. Our social media manager is also happy to coach our clients on popular ways to get your business seen where it matters.
5How long does search engine optimization take?
Usually search engine optimization should be a life long commitment from your business to grow the amount of revenue you get from it. As long as you continue to grow and have not reached the maximum of what your business can take on then keep going. To see results on the smallest of SEO campaigns you can expect to begin to see reports and results in a 45-90 day window on average.
