what is local sEO?
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) can be separated in to two broad categories Local SEO and National SEO. If you have a local business that serves your local area then this is where local SEO comes in.
It is simply the practice of implementing an SEO strategy that helps you become more visible (rank higher) in local search results, drive traffic to your website, and convert customers.
The point is local SEO is about making sure when people are searching locally for services and products you offer that its your business that is more visible than your local competitors, and that’s where Max Made Marketing and SEO Services comes in.

Local Visibility, Traffic, conversions
Visibility: If you aren’t implementing a solid SEO strategy then it’s like starting your business and keeping it a secret. Let’s say you have a flower shop. If someone searches for “florist near me” a good SEO strategy should place you at or near the top of organic results on google and other search engines. So if you aren’t there, your competition is!
Traffic: Sure it’s great if you are ranked number 1 for keywords you want, but are people going to your site and staying there? A good SEO strategy will bring visitors to your website.
Conversions: The first two points mean nothing if people aren’t actually converting to online or in person sales and visits. A great SEO strategy will not only increase traffic to your website but conversions as well.
