Essex Search Engine Optimisation
If you are a business located in Essex, then your website needs to reflect this in its content and design:
If you work in a geographical area, it often works well to have dedicated pages for that area with unique and useful content.
For example, if you are a hotel in Guildford, it would be useful to both your site visitors and Google to have
dedicated information about the area you are located, and for those who do not know Guildford
information about finding you, and things to do close to your location
If you have any local competitors online, it is very likely that you are going to need links from other websites to your to help you rank in Google.
One of the best way of doing this locally is to get links from other local websites.
For example, if you are a hotel in Guildford, then this may include:
- Having sponsored a local football team, a link from their website
- Link from the local newspaper following an article you sent them
- Links from local restaurants who you have relationships with
- and more...
The number of quality of the links that you will need to get
It is normal now for most of us when we buy something on Amazon for example, to read other customers reviews before ordering.
Local customers do this as well and therefore your businesses reviews are extremely important.
Not the ones you put onto your own website, as everyone knows these potentially could be changed!
The key reviews to get are the ones on other trusted websites such as Google Maps, Trip Advisor, Facebook, Trusted Reviews etc.
A large number of positive customer reviews will not only help you convert more site visitors into customers, but will help with your local Google rankings.
To discuss your customer review strategy and more, please contact us.
The results of effective Essex SEO
Essex Google rankings
One of our key jobs, is to find the local search terms that will drive you the best quality enquiries which will turn into customers.
There is no point in ranking no 1 in Google for phrases which will not actually drive you more business.
We cannot understate the positive impact that ranking No 1 in Google can have on some businesses, it can be revolutionary!
For example, if you are a plumber in Guildford, ranking No 1 for “plumber in Guildford” could result in a significant number of enquiries each and every single day.
Though there are some businesses where people do not search online, so SEO may not be the right marketing strategy.
We are only interested in helping our clients get more customers, so to discuss whether top Google Rankings could help your business, please contact us.
Essex maps rankings
It has been found that people using Google prefer to click on the local maps listings at the top of the page over and above the natural listings. Click to see image explaining this.
This listing is called your Google My Business page and we can also optimise this to improve your ranking on Google. Things we do to optimise this listing can include:
- Setting the listing up properly with photos and videos
- Asking customers for reviews on this listing
- Setting up quality directory listings to enhance the standing of your Name, Address and Phone Number
- and more..
The result of having a No 1 ranking can in some cases be even more significant than ranking No 1 in the natural listings, some studies showing 40 or 50% if searchers clicking on the No 1.
To discuss whether optimising your Google My Business Listing is suitable for your business, please contact us.
Rank other listings
Many people think of web marketing as just their own website; though there are many other opportunities where your business can drive direct enquiries, traffic and better Google rankings.
For example, of you are a Hotel in Guildford, you may have the following:
- Google My Business Page
- Trip Advisor Listing
- Facebook Page
- Yelp Listing
- and many more....
Many of these sites will drive you direct enquiries with people not even visiting your website. It is also possible to rank these listings along site your own website in Google, so that you could have more than one result on the front page of Google!
Some markets are though suited more to this strategy than others, so please contact us to discuss the best options for your business.
