Tips and tools to improve your local SEO

When an industrial company starts working on SEO in its online marketing strategy, one of its main objectives is usually to position itself in the top results in Google for the main keywords in its business. However, this is usually complicated and often involves months of work, especially in the sectors with the most competition.

Nevertheless, there is one speciality that industrial companies do not usually take into account and which allows results to be obtained in less time: local SEO. 

This type of positioning in search engines is essential if your company has clients in its closest environment, in your city or region, since local SEO consists of providing search engines with the necessary information so that they value your website as an important site in the organic results of local searches. We must not forget what Google's main objective is always: to offer its users the most relevant results for their geolocated queries.

 

Local SEO tools

Let's review some of the tools we have at our disposal to work on your company's local SEO. 

 

Google My Business

Google My Business is the free platform that Google offers to improve the visibility of businesses at a local level. This way your customers can find you more easily. 

If we provide Google with key information about our business, the search engine will be able to make the target customer reach us. The basic data is the NAP, which stands for "name, address and phone". But there are also additional elements such as photographs that allow us to gain visibility in the list of results and improve the image of our company, and above all, the reviews of our clients, which will allow us to stand out especially if we achieve an average rating of between 4 and 5 stars.

It is key to be especially careful when filling out the Google My Business form, as the way in which our company appears in the search engine results will depend on this information. This includes timetables, business niche, etc. 

 

Registration in local directories

It is a priority affordable link building strategy. That your business is present in local business directories is still important for local positioning. In addition, it is also a way for those who use these types of directories to find suppliers.

A small list of directories for industrial companies would include:

Depending on your niche and location you may also be able to look at specific company listings or chambers of commerce.

 

schema.org

Schema.org is a standard created by Google, Microsoft and Yahoo to label structured data on web pages and help search engines better understand their content. 

The benefits derived from its use are clear: it improves the indexation of our website and allows search engines to highlight our content with enriched fragments in the search results.

With the Structured Data Mark-up Wizard Google helps us to use the Schema language.  

 

Local SEO Checklist

It is an organisational tool that will help you to strengthen your local positioning. It offers us different options to check on our site; it details the tasks we should carry out to optimise the web and improve the search results. 

 

Test my site with Google

Having a responsive website is fundamental for SEO positioning in general, but it is even more important in local SEO, where mobile phone searches predominate.

With this online tool from Google we can discover how our website looks on computers and mobile devices of different sizes. It also provides data such as loading speed and performance and specific suggestions that will help us to detect areas for improvement.

 

These are just some of the tools we use to optimise local SEO for the industrial companies we work with at BCM Marketing. Our aim is always to increase the number of clients of your company.
