Local Search Optimization

If your website is not showing up in Wilmington’s search results, you need to up your local search optimization game! Research now shows that over 50% of mobile users are more likely to visit a store after conducting a local search. There are several important factors that shape your local search optimization success:

  • That your NAP (name, address, phone number) is consistent across your website and your citations in local directories.
  • That you have strong and balanced local reviews.
  • That you are creating locally targeted, high-value content on your site.
  • That you are steadily growing quality links from other local businesses or valued websites.Local Search Optimization graphic

Getting this right can be a daunting prospect. It is made harder by the fact that the directories shape your experience to funnel you into paying for better listings, each in a different and more puzzling way than the last.

This gives local business owners three options:

  1. Tackle the task on their own, night after night, heavy on coffee and frustration.
  2. Pay the listing agents the ongoing fees they require.
  3. Hire a professional to correct and complete your citations, and set up review processes and a linking strategy.
