The importance of local SEO
Local SEO is crucial to driving footfall to your store, showroom or local business branch. A strong local SEO strategy gives you a better chance of appearing in local search results, as well as increasing your online presence and strengthening your brand awareness.
If you run a business from a “bricks and mortar” location, you should prioritize local SEO as part of your digital marketing strategy.
That’s because 72% of today’s web users who search for local services visit businesses or shops within five miles of where they’re searching from. By ensuring your website and business has a good online presence in your local area, you can take advantage of search-based footfall to your business, allowing your business to benefit from offline success too.
