Local Search Engine Optimisation Service

Local search engine optimisation is quite simply the online equivalent of the Yellow Pages. It’s a more targeted form of search, which, though on a smaller scale, often provides quality traffic and business leads.

Research by the Kelsey Group suggests that over 86% of online users search for a business when they need something. Local search engine optimisation is an invaluable tool for tapping into this specific audience and generating site visits and income.

The main search engines, Google, Yahoo and Bing each offer local search marketing products to help your business increase its visibility. At Cartoozo, we can help optimise your website to take advantage of these local search engines opportunities and stay ahead of your competitors.

What Is Local Search Engine Optimisation?

Local search engine optimisation can be used in a number of different ways.

Google Places – Google Places allows you to list your business so that it appears in Google Maps search results, for example, ‘hair salons in Covent Garden, London.’ Google Places lists a mixture of paid ads and local business listings, so it’s a good idea to use AdWords campaign management to create a campaign targeted to your local area. You can also boost your ratings by fleshing out your listing with as much information as possible (content, videos, images, descriptive text.)

Yahoo local search marketing – Yahoo’s listings include a mix of event listings, user-generated reviews and other content, maps and user questions. It favours paid adverts over simple listings. You can list your business in Yahoo listings using the Local Listings Centre. The Enhanced Listings option offers more information and features than the standard listing, but is a paid service.

Bing local search – Bing displays paid adverts from most prominently, but also indexes locally listed businesses on its virtual map. The listing service allows you to add information such as business hours, tagline, payment methods and photos.
