4 Proven Local SEO Tips to Rank High in

Hey everyone it’s neil patel here for another Q&A Thursday video I’m here with Adam from viewership hello everyone and this week’s question is we have this one from Carson and his question for you is how does one go about ranking high SEO for search terms including near me with Geographic relevance for this example dog trainers near me I’m assuming he’s a dog trainer yeah so near me means anytime you do a search like plumbers near me dog trainers near me whatever it may be like gardener near me right there including that term near me in the Google search so what he’s asking is how can I rank my business when people are typing in whatever term plus near me so the first thing you need to do whatever you want to rank for google it type in that plus near me and you’ll see all the localized sites that Google is pulling from for those near me listings make sure you’re listed there by getting listed there it helps tremendously because if they’re pulling from those sites and you’re there there’s a higher chance that you’re gonna get listed you live in Boston right so let’s use the example of Boston the next if we have is you want to make sure you’re listing the local landmarks town lines as well as old school like driving directions to wherever that you’re servicing so on your website in Boston there’s probably a lot of suburbs in Boston

correct yeah and what are some of them Charlestown Cambridge so on your website you want to list all the little subsections of Boston or whatever city you’re servicing all the landmarks all the town lines because they could be all close to each other and you even want to go as far as putting the localized old-school directions from how people get to get to wherever they are to you by doing that you’re gonna be much better off in getting more traffic you also want to make sure you have a localized number everyone’s like oh you want a 800 number or 888 number but no you want to localize numbers so people know that you’re there you’re in person and you’re not one of those you know sites that has near me listings for every single city in the United States and they’re not really near there you know the a hundred place first looks like ours that’s like the whole thing I was looking for a flower shop near medium bossed I lived downtown I ended up going like way outside of town to find a place that was like a legit local place not an 800 flowers or anything like that so good advice yeah she just called Amex Amex deals with all that for you they’re really official that’s really corporate there’s so much for that no but and this will find the local

flower shop for you oh nice yeah yeah you should try that out good little tip so in addition to that when people go look for services near them whether it’s plumbing dog sitting dog walking they also check out your overall company or you and how you’re doing overall so they may go to Yelp in those national services to type in your name to see how many reviews you have and if your legitimate so make sure you ask people who have a good experience to leave a review on whatever site whether it’s Google or whether of it’s you know on Yelp or whatever it may be because it helps create legitimacy because even if you’re not ranking at the top by having more reviews people be like oh wow you got five or six hundred reviews we’re more likely list you when you do a search google has a local pack and let’s say they pick three listings and the number one spot has ten reviews and number two spot has seven reviews and you’re the third spot if you get a ton of reviews

and now you have 50 or 100 reviews what you’ll find is a lot of people will click on the listing with more reviews and they click on you more than the other two eventually will will push the other two down and push you above them so follow those tips you’ll get way more traffic for people looking for your business or your service near you definitely and I should say that the very fact that you’re watching this is a local business sets you so far apart than all the other local businesses so just know like you’re already killing it just by like following a few of these tips whether you’re watching this or you’re doing something that’s huge because when I talk to most localized businesses they’re like yeah we get our business from word of mouth but we hand out flyers to community businesses around us and I’m like alright there’s an internet there’s phone like yes you should still do those offline tactics we should also use digital tactics as well so thank you guys for watching if you have a comment or a question leave it below I’ll be there to answer and we may choose your question for next week’s Q&A Thursday video and also if you have a local business just want to comment below tell this is an awesome community of people who are like really trying to get it all together so tell us a little bit about the businesses one yeah love to help you out as well thank you for watching make sure you subscribe share tell your friends about us thank you very much
