Local SEO Tips Anyone Can Implement - DIY Tips 1

Optimize your site. Please don’t overdo it here, but you MUST tell Google what you do and where you do it. If you don’t have that information in your domain name, use your site title. If you are a plumber in Omaha, a well-optimized site title could be Brand Name | #1 Omaha Plumbing Company. Optimize your title a little, then add related keywords a time or 2 in your content. It sounds normal, and don’t overdo it! Also, add your NAP info into your footer. NAP = Name, Address, Phone #.

Claim and Optimize your Maps listing. If you are a legitimate business, chances are Google knows about you. If you have not claimed your listing, do so immediately. You will want to have your NAP info be identical to your site’s here. Also, add hours and categories, and fill it out as completely as possible. A great local SEO tip here is to Geo implement your images. There is a lot of info on the web about doing this, so give it a quick search, and you will be good to go.


Get those citations! Citations will help your Maps rankings and give your website a foundation of branded links. Most of these will be nofollow links but carry weight and are very important. These are sites like Yelp, Manta, YellowPages, CitySearch, etc., and you can create FREE listings on all of them. They will try to get you to advertise, which is unnecessary, but it’s your decision. We are after the link we get from the sites. Make sure NAP info is EXACT here. If you don’t want to do this yourself, there are plenty of services available that build citations for you. I would be happy to help if you get stuck.

Get Social! If you don’t have Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, and Pinterest, get them. You will want to get these done and filled out as completely as possible. All will provide a nice link back to your site as well. These are a few of my beginner local SEO tips. If you follow the tips from above, you will be off to a great start. In low-competition niches, doing this might be enough to get your site and Maps listing ranking very high!
