If you've followed SEO strategies for some time, you just need to know one thing: SEO varies always. When it comes to local SEO, it's more important that you optimize on-site and off-site SEO strategies for clients and customers.

1. Descriptions and Taglines

Title and meta description tags are HTML elements that can be customized to reflect the content of your web page. The previous year, Google increased the capacity of the main search results. Usually, the acceptable length for title tags is approximately 50 to 60 letters and the description tags can be approximately up to 160 to 200 characters.

Writing titles and descriptions is considered as an art in the SEO world. When competing for search results, if the text isn't unique and descriptive, then your click-through rate will suffer. If you want to reach plenty of customers, then include the name of the city where your business functions and/or the area of your business services. Focus on using the targeted keywords and carefully place that keyword as close to the beginning of the tag.

2. Use plenty of online directories.

As per what Google had to reveal approximately four out of five consumers used search engines to conduct local searches. You must get your business listed correctly in the business directories. Check with your local newspaper's website and your Chamber of Commerce to see if they have a local business directory where you can get listed.

3. Google My Business

Claiming and optimizing Google My Business (GMB) is a very good directory but is expensive. In most of the cases, it deserves its section. Local businesses need to claim their own Google My Business. There's a verification process you'll need to go through where Google will send a postcard with a PIN to your business's physical location.

This verification process is very necessary because Google wants to confirm that your business is legitimate and that you are the owner. If you're working with a digital marketing agency for SEO, you can then permit them to be a manager of your page. According to the latest news survey, 84 percent of people trust online reviews as much as a personal recommendation, and seven out of 10 customers will leave a review for a business if requested by the business people. There are several reputed marketing software and tool options you can use to track and manage.

Additionally, many social media plans allow you to monitor and get notified any time your brand is mentioned. Whenever a review is left regarding your business be it, positive or negative, be sure to respond to it at the perfect time. This will show other people who read the reviews that you care for your customers. A lot of people turn to social media to see what their friends and family think about the business. Thereby having good reviews on your business's Facebook page can help to draw in prospective customers.
