Local SEO Timeline

You can expect to see results with local SEO within 3-12 months. From kickoff to monthly reports, here’s what you can expect from us in those early stages:

Month One

  1. Review and Set Up Your GBP for All Locations

    Do you already have a GBP? Great! We’ll make sure you are the verified owner. Then, confirm all your basic information is set up properly.

  2. Off-site SEO

    Next up, we’ll audit and optimize your GBP, Apple, and Bing profiles. This includes posting products, events, services, service areas, and urchin tracking modules (UTMs), which are snippets of code added to your website’s URLs to track data accurately.

  3. Conversion Setup

    At this point, we’ll ensure we are tracking all the goals that are most important to you.

  4. Keyword Research

    We execute our initial keyword research by taking inventory of what you already do well, what your competitors rank for, and opportunities for your business going forward. The goal here is to track these keywords for reporting purposes, of course, but also to map out our future content efforts.

Month Two

  1. Local Position Monitoring

    During month two, we’ll double down on the keywords you want to rank for.

  2. Technical Audit

    Time to get technical. This is also when we evaluate your internal linking structure and schema.

  3. Competitive Research

    Using the list of competitors compiled the month before, we dig deeper into competitive research. Fun fact: sometimes your online and keyword competitors are very different from your real-life competitors!

  4. Custom Reporting Creation

    Time to call in the data and analytics team to create your custom reports, which you will receive on a monthly basis going forward.

  5. On-page SEO

    Last but not least, our team will execute technical autistic changes and updates to your site.

Month Three (And Beyond)

  1. New Content Development & Strategy

    At this point, we’ll create pages for each of your physical locations, ensuring all necessary elements are included. We’ll also continue to implement changes on location pages that might be underperforming.

  2. Off-Site SEO

    We like to keep things clean around here. Working on the projects based on the previous month, we’ll clean and submit all local citations — aiming for about 10 citations per month and two locations.

  3. On-Site SEO

    It never ends! We audit and execute changes on a monthly basis.

  4. Monthly Reporting

    You’ll always be in the know. Just wait until you learn more about our unique ConversionIQ reporting software (more on this in a minute).

Who Needs Local SEO Services?

Any business that targets customers in specific geographic areas would benefit from high-quality local SEO services.

This includes:

  • Small businesses with brick-and-mortar locations, like retail stores and restaurants
  • Service-area businesses, such as plumbers and cleaning services
  • Professionals targeting local clients (lead generation), like lawyers and real estate agents
  • Online businesses with a local focus, like delivery services

Here’s the thing:

When a local business is ready to expand, often the plan is to hire a developer to build new web pages and then hire a marketing agency to ensure your website ranks in all the right places.

But by hiring a qualified local SEO agency from the beginning, your new pages can be built with local SEO in mind so you have less work down the road to appear at the top of the almighty Google search results.

Man at Computer

What Is a Local SEO Company?

A local SEO company is a digital marketing agency that helps businesses improve their local online visibility and local search rankings to attract more in-person customers (and phone calls for lead generation businesses).

Local SEO companies employ unique SEO strategies, like optimizing the business’s website, managing online reviews, local link building, and ensuring accurate business information is on directories and platforms.

Unlike traditional SEO, the goal of a local SEO campaign is to rank highly on the local search results. These local results show up alongside search engine maps (think Google Maps, Apple Maps, Bing Maps, and Yahoo Maps) rather than the standard search engine results pages (SERP).

This makes it easier for potential customers to find and choose local businesses when they perform online search queries for relevant products or services in their immediate vicinity.

FAQs About Local SEO Services

What is a local SEO company?

A local SEO company is a digital marketing agency that helps local businesses improve their online visibility and search engine rankings to attract more in-person customers and foot traffic.

How much do local SEO services cost?

Local SEO services cost $500-$1,000 per month but will vary by agency or provider.

How long does it take to see results?

It typically takes around 3-12 months to see results with local SEO.

What services do local SEO companies provide?

Local SEO company deliverables include:

  • Conversion tracking setup
  • Local SEO audit & recommendations
  • Local keyword analysis & recommendations
  • Local competitive landscape & industry analysis
  • Technical SEO
  • New content & on-page optimization
  • Off-site strategy
  • Custom Reporting

What is the difference between local SEO and traditional SEO?

Traditional SEO focuses on improving website visibility and rankings on a wider scale, whereas local SEO targets a specific geographic area to attract local customers.

This means that while there are some strategies that overlap, such as technical SEO, keyword targeting, and content strategies, there are many methodologies unique to local SEO.

What’s the difference between backlinks and citations?

Backlinks are tactical strategies used in local and traditional SEO to earn links back to your website from another reputable site. Citations, on the other hand, can be as simple as a name, address, and phone number listed on another site — and these citations might not even include a link. While citations might not immediately boost organic traffic, they boost brand awareness and authority.

Examples of valuable citations include the local chamber of commerce and local listings. This is also why sponsoring local events is such a good move for local SEO, as sponsors are typically listed on the website promotion.

Local SEO Benefits

Local SEO offers a range of benefits for businesses looking to target specific geographic areas, drive foot traffic to physical locations, and establish a strong online presence within their local communities.
