What Is “Local” Search Engine Optimization?
“Localized” SEO is the understanding that a large percentage of your business comes from people searching for you from within your local community. More than 40% of all searches performed include a localized keyword component, and when it comes to targeted traffic, people who plan on physically going to your brick and mortar location will include the city in the keywords nearly 96% of the time.
