Local Search Optimization

Ranking your business in local search results must be earned. Earning the right to appear for a specific keyword or phrase is achieved by providing the “key ranking factors” that top search engines require. These key ranking factors are referred to as E.A.T. (Expertise, Authority, and Trust).

Lighthouse Web Design & Marketing covers all aspects of ranking your business for these local “intent” searches and to achieve the expertise, authority, and trust your business needs to succeed not only in searches but with your site visitors.

Local SEO is different: not only do you need strong content and links, but your business must also have active listings on Google my Business, active Bing/Yahoo accounts, a mobile-friendly website, quality content, accurate listings in trusted directories, and local content.
