5 Tips for better local SEO results
Local SEO can be some of the most competitive forms of online internet marketing, but also
some of the most rewarding. Google can be tough on local businesses and can be quite strict on
their local search engine results, and they are changing every day. We've put together 5 local
SEO tips that can help benefit your business on the top of the local SERPS and get your business
Tip #1
Research your local keywords by searching City + Keyword(s) in Google. Be sure not to be
logged in to Google+ when doing so because it may alter your search results. If you are
searching a local service provider, then you should see a local search pack (7 pack) of results.
Note, there are other forms of local SEO that do not leverage a local search result and can utilize
more standard forms of link building / social bookmarking / etc.
Tip #2
Make sure your business is located in the geographical location you are targeting for your
keywords (e.g. Orlando SEO, our business is located in downtown Orlando). The local Google
system knows where these businesses are and wants to center results based on both the locations
of the visitor and the location of the business. You will always have a better local listing if your
business is near the downtown locations because that is central to Google's algorithm.
Tip #3
In order to see how many businesses you're competing with, you can do a local market
competitive search. If you copy the name, address, and phone number of the best result in the
local SEO pack, you can search for that in quotations and Google will tell you an approximate
number of businesses competing with that business.
Tip #4
Submit your business website to the important local directories. Google places, Yelp, Local
directories like Downtown Orlando, Orlando Chamber of Commerce directories, and service
specific directories will help your business generate more traction. Be sure these are relevant
locations (e.g. Orlando SEO Monsters will market to directories pertaining to Internet Marketing,
SEO, Google, etc) and always keep your directories local to your location, like Orlando.
Tip #5
Be sure to add all of your content when you submit to the local directories. Name, address, phone
numbers, and website address should all be incorporated because these are the relevant details

that the local Google SEO results are looking for. If you don't input all of your information, you
are missing out on the opportunities of dominating the local SEO listings and costing your
business money!
