Local Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is an immensely profitable way of generating local customers for your business.

It is the royal combination of both on-page and off-page SEO elements combined with its own requirements.

It generally refers to the optimisation of your website to appear on searches focused on attracting customers searching for local products or services on Google, Yahoo & Bing.

Although the techniques used within this strategy can be similar to National SEO or Enterprise SEO, this method is predominantly steered towards optimising your Google My Business profile and local online presence and reputation.

What is a Local Search?

A Local Search refers to customers in requirement of a local service assistance or purchase of a product with local intent.

To give you an example:

“Find me a Plumber near me”

“Where can I buy a Google Home”

by 2020, Statista predicts there will be over 205 million smart home devices installed within the Asia/Pacific region.

This proves the importance of implementing local SEO for your website sooner, rather than later as voice commands and searches are becoming more common in today’s online shopping trends.


What is the “Snack Pack”?

The Snack Pack displays the top 3 related business’ within that region and Google search query.

Local SEO processes involve optimising your Google My Business listing to increase your search frequency within the Snack Pack and local listings.
