New Orleans Local SEO Services
The Internet has been one of the most important advancements in technology for business. Businesses large and small now have the ability to market their products and services to a global audience. But a global concept may not work for your business, especially if it’s a local business. And if that’s the case, your New Orleans business wants and needs to attract local New Orleans customers.
Beginning in 2008, Google introduced blended search results which included local business listings on the very first page of search results. So a person searching Google for, say, a pizza restaurant or a plumber would see local area businesses instead of listings for pizza restaurants and plumbers from across the country. Yahoo and Bing now do the same as well. Below is an example of what we’re referring to. The areas we've highlighted in light blue are the local search results.
As you can see, businesses that are local for the searcher are listed very prominently in the first page of search results. This is how most people today will discover your business when doing a search online or on their mobile phone, and this is where your business needs to be listed and seen. Even businesses without a web site can appear and rank high in local search results. But being listed in this prime real estate area of someone’s screen does not happen automatically nor easily.
