What Is Local SEO?

Local SEO is the practice of optimizing your website so that it ranks well in Google’s local search results.

When someone searches for a dentist, they want a dentist who’s around the corner or in the same city. Likewise with plumbers, chiropractors, home builders and landscapers – each is a business who interact with the local community. Effective Local SEO makes it possible for local businesses to be seen by local clients and customers with a serious intent to buy.

The advantage to local seo is that there’s usually less competition and you get in front of the right people (buyers) at the right time – now!

The biggest caveat is that you may not have the staffing resources to handle the influx of business created by our online marketing efforts. When executed correctly, local SEO can literally transform your business.

Results Guaranteed!

You don’t hire a seo specialist to rank you on the second page!

Business owners are naturally skeptical of SEO providers. Either they’ve had a bad experience in the past or they’ve heard about other bad experiences. I want to remove that risk and place it squarely on my shoulders.  You shouldn’t have to pay for work that doesn’t produce. If I don’t meet our agreed upon rank, traffic, and ROI goals during any given month, the next month is FREE. It’s that simple. Adding to that, all your work will be completely transparent and accessible, there are no term commitments, and if you chose to leave – all work goes with you.

Ex: “custom home builder Indianapolis”

How long does it take to see results? 2018-03-02T21:11:31+00:00

It depends on the age of your website, competition, type of business and a host of other variables. Some business see a move toward positive results in a month, others three months, and yet others six months to a year. Unfortunately it’s difficult to say but I will commit to a time-frame before work starts.

How much does it cost? 2018-03-02T21:20:47+00:00

Every business is different. Some require a lot of effort and time, others not as much. Some need monthly work to compete and maintain the desired results, others perform very well without monthly work. My hourly rate is $50/hr.  Most quotes run between 20 and 60 hours or $1000 and $3000.

Why Should I Start Now? 2018-03-02T20:15:15+00:00

If you want your business to grow and be found by new customers online, you need to get serious about improving your website and how you rank in search engines. Establishing a healthy web presence takes time. It takes time to implement and it takes time to see improvements in rankings. If you don’t start now, this time next year you’ll wish you did.

Will you change our website design? 2018-03-05T13:08:53+00:00

Maybe. If we decide that a redesign is necessary to reach our goals, then yes, your website will change. On the other hand, if you have a website that looks great, functions well, but ranks poorly then the design won’t change much. Either way, you’ll know before I get started of any changes that might take place.

Are we required to sign a contract? 2018-03-02T21:04:20+00:00

No, not really. I will right up a proposal which will include all of my terms and conditions. Signing that proposal just means that we both agree on the services being offered, the fees being charged and the terms (terms vary per project). You will never sign a contract that commits you to a specific timeframe like 6 months or a year. I want you to stay with me because you want to, not because you signed a document that says you have to.

What is ‘ethical’ link building? 2018-03-05T13:09:16+00:00

Backlinks are a important signal that carries a lot of weight in Google’s ranking algorithm. Think of links as votes, the more votes (links) your website has the more trust it’s given by Google, the more trust you have the higher you can rank.

Ethical link building is earning links, unethical link building is buying links. It’s not illegal to buy links but it is against Google’s Terms of Service to buy links in an effort to game their search results. So how do you earn links? Local blogger outreach, spy on your competitors links – many of those links you can probably get too, and get listed everywhere, be everywhere – local directories, hyper local directories, social profiles, unlinked web mentions, and the list goes on.

Do you outsource your work? 2018-03-02T21:25:40+00:00

Yes – I handle most of the work myself but I may bring someone into a project from time to time depending on the size of the project and/or my work load. I’ll never outsource my work overseas.

Do you work with e-commerce sites? 2018-03-02T16:59:49+00:00

No.
