Local SEO Rings the Bell (and the cash register!) Why You want all the local traffic you can capture
Why Local Search is Key to your Longevity:
Google™s research into local search behavior reveals that local searchers are poised to take action. According to their findings, “50% of consumers who conducted a local search on their smartphone visited a store within 1 day, and 34% who searched on computer/tablet did the same.” Your rankings in local searches will directly effect your bottom line and your in-store traffic level.
People search for things nearby by conducting local searches every day! These searches are aimed at finding solutions to their needs that are relative to their current location. Can your local consumer find you from their phone?
What do you need to do so you can get found?
- Make sure you have a mobile site so you can be found!
- Build and Authenticate your Google Plus Biz Page
- Check your Web Listings for consistency (same address/phone/etc on web page that lists your business)
- Survey your traffic, ask if the user found you on the web/smart phone before they came into your location.
Get out there and grab your share of mobile search!
Up to 65% of your potential traffic is mobile already
Are you ready for them??
