Local SEO Melbourne | Local SEO Australia Services
When you’re looking for a local café, local service or even a local laundromat to help you with that stockpile of dirty laundry — how do you find it?
With your smartphone and some key phrases that are going to trigger businesses local to you. Whether you’re looking for some new local haunts or you’re visiting a new area, search engines can help you to identify the best place to get a coffee or the best place to get lunch.
In 2018, 89% of people will search for a local business using their smartphone at least once a week, with 58% using it daily.
From that search, 72% of people will visit a store within 8km of where they are — pretty powerful stuff.
Whether you’re an independent small business, a chain or a local business without a storefront, local SEO is key to driving more people to your store.
Reach out to a wider audience and connect with qualified leads that will drive growth.
What is Local SEO?
Local SEO is much the same as normal Search Engine Optimisation, only with an added emphasis on the geographical component. Instead of trying to rank for general search terms related to your business, Local SEO puts an emphasis on ranking for search terms that drive local traffic directly to your business.
So, why is Local SEO important for your business? Put simply, traffic which isn’t catered towards achieving the end goal (sales or conversions — however you measure it) is meaningless. Local SEO drives highly motivated customers to your business.
There’s no point in ranking #1 for “Best Coffee in Sydney” if your café is in Melbourne. Users who are using geographically specific search terms such as “Best Coffee in Sydney” are not interested in results that appear outside of this area. Sure, if you’re a café in Melbourne, you can probably game the system and figure out a way to rank on page 1 for this search term, but what’s the point? Traffic without relevancy isn’t going to grow your business.
Too many SEO companies promise more traffic, without promising more conversions. My Local SEO Australia services are tailored towards generating meaningful traffic with a high purchase intent.
How Local SEO Services Can Grow Your Business
Local SEO is the new White Pages (apologies to those still using the white pages). Local SEO is about driving targeted traffic to your business that is going to increase your bottom line — not just your web traffic.
Local SEO increases your website’s ranking for relevant local search terms that lead to conversions — not just web traffic.
Local SEO can dramatically reduce your paid marketing spend for competitive PPC keywords.
Local SEO helps local users with high-purchase intent to find your business.
Local SEO ensures that your business is visible on Google Maps, Apple Maps and other popular navigational Apps that people use to find local business.
Local SEO is still in its infancy. Less than 30% of businesses tailor their SEO towards local search. Businesses who take action now are going to gain a competitive edge over those who are optimising for generic search terms and neglecting Local SEO.

You run a franchise or chain business that has stores in multiple locations across one or more cities.

When Will I Notice the Benefits of Local SEO
SEO is a long-term strategy. Promising an X% increase in sales in X number of days is disingenuous. Typically, however, most clients will see a noticeable increase in traffic on their long tail keywords in the first 90 days. For highly competitive keywords, it can take up to 180 days for the full benefit of a Local SEO campaign to be established.
Local SEO is the gift that keeps on giving. Unlike PPC marketing, SEO will continue to benefit your business for years to come. Even for large, well-established businesses who spend extensively on paid marketing campaigns, organic traffic generated through SEO continues to be the biggest driver of sales.
How Much Do Your Local SEO Services Cost?
Each business is unique. What your campaign will cost will vary depending on which keywords you’re targeting, your website’s current ranking, your business location, industry competition, and what is needed to achieve your Local SEO Goals.
