6 Tips for Improving Local Search Engine Rankings

About the author:

Nick Melillo is a Local SEO consultant in Greensboro, NC who specializes in helping small businesses of all types get highly ranked both locally and organically on the search engines for keywords which bring them customers and ultimately more sales.

Local search engine rankings are critical to the success of any business in their natural market, because of the relevance factor.  People using local search features are looking for a company in their area who can service their needs or provide the products they require without having to go outside of their region.

Local search engine optimization is a great way to help improve rankings in the local market, build brand awareness for your company and increase market presence; which ultimately results in more business and sales overall.

Here are some quick tips to improve your Local SEO campaign and help generate more business:

  • Use keywords in the META Title Tag.
  • Use keywords in the META Description Tag.
  • Use keywords in the web page URL you wish to get ranked.
  • Use keywords in the content and make sure you have good density (around 7-10%).
  • Submit your site to local business directories and websites (IYPs or Internet Yellow Pages).
  • Build links with keyword specific anchor text including both target keywords and local keywords (i.e. Greensboro SEO Consultant).

These 6 things will enhance your presence significantly and put you above your competitors in the rankings quickly.

For more detailed information about exactly how to go about doing this (because obviously its not that simple), please contact me and I will personally walk you through the process.
