Looking for a local SEO expert in London? Local SEO goes hand in hand with mobile search and Google Maps in many ways, this has never been truer than for 2019/20. Google has launched their mobile-first index. This in layperson’s terms means the mobile version of a page is the one used for indexing and ranking. Mobile devices take priority, hence the name mobile-first index. This is critical to SEO and Google maps results.
One-off or Monthly SEO retainer
Local SEO is targeted to a specific area, my services are mostly for London since there’s where I operate and a place I know well. However, this will apply to any other location you are at and in essence consists of all the normal SEO factors, technical, on page factors and promotion or all the things you do outside of your own website, with a local emphasis.
Local SEO for London
Local SEO in our case would be to target London and queries related to both your business products or services and London, or even for example just central London, North London and so on, we can also target individual neighborhoods, if your business is specific to just a few areas, if, for example, you operate just in Westminster or the City.
Google My Business SEO
Google has an average of 90% of the UK’s and Europe’s search market share, in 2019/20 the single most important action for Local SEO is to correctly list and use Google My Business. That’s just the start and lots of business do not do or do it or take full advantage of its potential.
Local SEO impact on Mobile SEO?
With continued mobile growth and Google’s push for all things mobile, Local SEO is absolutely vital.
From the middle of 2018 when the mobile first index should have rolled out in full for most UK sites, Mobile site speed will be a ranking factor and mobile, local search and local SEO more intertwined. In late 2019 and 2020 the impact of local SEO on voice search is also greater by the day. Google’s push for Question and and Answer type of queries in order to feed its AI and push Google Assistant and voice search linked to Nest and Google Home products.
The importance of local SEO on mobile results cannot be overestimated this will be even more so in 2020. Local SEO is greatly improved with the use of Google Maps and Google My Business.
