One of the biggest issues for a locally based business is the immense size of the internet today. A website that is based locally will often get buried deep in search engines results and that is if they are even there at all. Websites that belong to larger national and international companies, usually Â dominate the best broad search terms and they optimize well for them. This is why a localized search marketing campaign or local seo, requires a very different approach.
The Â internet is ever evolving Â and so web users become more sophisticated. Many people are also turning to the internet more and more with the intent to find local services and products so they don’t have to travel too far to get them. This is equally true for businesses that use the internet to promote their brick-and-mortar business as well as those who sell directly online.
No doubt you are like most locally based business owners that have dared to venture onto the web doing this with the hope Â to gain more exposure. To do this you may have invested in a basic website from a local web design company or like many these days, you have tackled the web design by yourself. The mistake many Â local business owners make is that they expect their flashy new website to automatically bring in hundreds, if not thousands of visitors and customers without doing any more than getting the website live on the internet. Sadly, may are sorely disappointed when it does not happen the way they expect it to.
The main reason the site receives very Â little traffic, if any for that matter, is simply because the search engines barely know it exists. All that work and effort and your website is not even seen by the very thing that helps others to see it when they are searching for you. Another major problem is that many local websites are designed for good looks that tries to impress the business owner and any visitors that might happen to come across it. More often than not, they are not designed with search in mind as many web design companies only Â focus on the design of the website and know next to nothing Â about incorporating basic search optimization for the web site.
Our experience has been that most our clients are mainly focused on running the day-to-day operation of their business and not trying to get a website visible in the results. This is primarily what a business owner should be doing any way. To successfully promote a website on-line with local seo requires a very different set of skills which most business owners do not have the time or sometimes the desire to learn for themselves. Unfortunately the sad fact is there is a lot of misinformation out there that they have to sort through to understand what works and what doesn’t work. They usually don’t know where to start much less know what questions they should be asking so that they can get people to find their website through search.
For this very reason it is very important to engage the services of a professional local seo individual or a the security of a company. They know what the ins and outs are and how to get your website to be visible and in time, be at the top of the search results so you can get on with running your business.
