4 Local Search Marketing & SEO Mistakes

2014 Online Marketing Trends & Tips-2

1) IGNORING THE DATA AGGREGATORS: “While you may be implementing a new strategy this year, don’t forget the basics. Site submissions to directories, specifically local directories, still matter. In the case of local businesses and the recent algorithmic at Google, one could argue it matters more than ever,” says Ryan Park, Arrow Creative. 

2) NOT HAVING AN INDIVIDUAL PAGE FOR EACH BUSINESS LOCATION: “If you want your store pages to be found, it’s best to have a unique, easily crawlable url for each store,” says Adam Dorfman, SearchEngineWatch.com 

3) DISMISS THE OPPORTUNITY OF PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS: “One mistake local businesses make is when they treat social media solely as a promotional platform. Remember, it is “social” media for a reason. People are having conversations about your industry and even your business. This is an opportunity to join the conversation and build relationships,” says Ryan Park, Arrow Creative. 

4) NOT USING LOCALIZED CONTENT: “Most businesses know they need to use relevant keywords in their content so their website ranks on the search engines. Unfortunately many business owners stop at the types of services or products they offer,” says Adam Dorfman, SearchEngineWatch.com
