Local Search Engine Optimization

Local Search Engine Optimization (Local SEO) is the process behind increasing the visibility and online traffic for local businesses. This includes brick-and-mortar stores and franchise locations that are anchored in a specific geographic area. 

It differs from traditional SEO since the objective is to attract web users from a specific city, state or region. For example, the goal would be to rank  for the keyword “hair salon near me” or “hair salon in Atlanta” versus “hair salon”.

What are the top ranking factors for Local SEO?

  1. Google My Business (GMB)
  2. NAP Consistency across the web (Name, Address, Phone Number)
  3. Link Signals (inbound backlinks)
  4. Reviews (quantity, quality, velocity, origin)
  5. Citation Management – directories and online listings 
  6. Keyword & Content Strategy

Each one of them requires frequent and constant actions so you stay on top of your competition. Book your free audit right away to learn more!

In my experience, Wedgewood does a great job using true analysis for making decisions regarding digital advertising... placement and language. Where as other digital marketing shops I've worked with have been reluctant to provide an honest perspective on proposed marketing tactics, Wedgewood has always used numbers to justify campaign spend.read more

I've had the pleasure of working with Wedgewood Marketing for both of the businesses that I operate and both times... their service and results far surpassed even my lofty expectations. I was able to work one on one with the owner of the company who took the time to understand what our goals were and helped strategize the best way to achieve them. I have since retained their services on an ongoing basis to help to continue to drive growth. I highly recommend reaching out to Wedgewood for any of your digital marketing needs.read more
