SEO Tips for Making The Most of Your Local Listings

You want customers. Your customers want information. Bring in more sales by creating and optimizing your local business listings online.

In the infographic below, we give you some specific guidelines to follow while representing your business on Yelp, Google, and Facebook. However, no matter the platform, you can start optimizing your local listings by doing the following:

  • Claiming your business
  • Adding your complete address
  • Filling in all available information fields
  • Using relevant keywords everywhere you can
  • Adding high-quality photos

Once you’ve followed through with those steps, you should bolster your listing with reviews. 85% of consumers report that they read up to 10 reviews before trusting a business. Thankfully, you don’t have to sit around waiting for someone to appreciate your service enough to comment on it (although great reviews do start with great service!). You can encourage your customers to leave positive reviews and save face by combating negative reviews.

But how? Follow the infographic to find all the tips you need.
