    Target your keywords with location, get your business on Google local listing, do classified posts.

    You can have a high authority with search engines with your company NAP, but if your site isn’t optimized then achieving the rankings you want aren’t going to happen, they might, but highly doubtful. Here are a few tips to help:


        • Create a unique title tag for each page of the site
        • Title tags should be a max of 70 characters, and contain 1 main keyword and the company name
        • The title tag should accurately reflect the content on the page
        • Create a custom meta description for each page
        • Add your NAP to every page of the website
        • Add some internal links
        • Re-evaluate your content, try to make it more local
        • Place Google+ authorship markup
        • Place Schema.org microdata
        • List a blog to your website

    Study, analyze and understand your audience!

    Not only do you need to know where they live but also what they like and don't like. Age, gender! Research your audience!

    To target a local market
    must have unique content and information of the website
    update title tag and meta description of the website
    use Google map to locate your business
    do business listing in local directories.

    1. First get to know very well the location where your business is located so you can have a very good landing page. (Good rich snippets + low attention ration and high CTA)
    2. If you focus on more locations - read about the areas before you make the pages. Is very important to have detailed pages. Common pages will not help because is hard to believe that you have physic address for each location.
    3. Local forums (for reviews, to advertise, to train people - all in all to create a brand and try to become an influencer)
    4. REVIEWS - real ones - not paid. If you have old clients on your data base - ask them to leave some good reviews on your website or local citations !
    5. Local citations and national citations!
    6. Local News papers.
    7. Local activities - with the purpose of attracting clients. Charity action so that everybody will mention your name on chamber of commerce and big local sites.
    8. Flyers. Nice designed ones.
    9. Street grafity.
