As a business owner, you've probably heard about SEO before. Short for Search Engine Optimisation, it's the process of helping potential customers find your website on the Internet.
As an example, let's say you own a French restaurant in Brisbane, and you're famous for your oysters and apricot soufflé. You're known around the neighbourhood as the place to go on a date or when you want to celebrate a special occasion.
Because this hypothetical business is local and catering to a Brisbane audience, it would be a mistake to try to rank for search terms like "oysters" or simply "best restaurant." These terms are general and aren't intent-based. Someone searching for oysters online might be curious about what they are, what they taste like, and if they're an aphrodisiac. Someone searching for "best restaurant" might be interested in learning about popular cuisine or identifying the highest-ranked restaurant in the world.
While this type of global SEO is valuable for other kinds of businesses, it's not the technique that we employ for local businesses. In local SEO, our goal is to make sure our clients show up on the top of Google and the other search engines whenever a serious buyer is looking for their product or services. So, in our French restaurant example, anyone in or near Brisbane looking for a fine dining experience would discover our client's restaurant online before seeing any other options.
Local SEO is one of the most important, and often overlooked strategies for local businesses. When you employ this strategy, prepare to be flooded with qualified prospects and visitors.
