What’s the difference between Local SEO and regular SEO?
SEO is the acronym for Search Engine Optimization. I’m sure you’ve heard of SEO but you may not know how it works. SEO is the process of getting your website to rank high in Google for relevant search phrases.

A successful SEO strategy combines tactics from these 3 core areas of focus.


This is how relevant the search engine sees your website in relation to the search term, it is based on the content of your website, including on-page content and blog articles.


This means how technically sound your website is on the backend according to Google, it includes things like meta tags, meta descriptions, alt tags & most importantly site speed.


This is essentially your website’s online reputation, it includes things like domain history, backlinks, guest blogs, anchor text and reviews.

Local SEO is a little different than regular SEO. Instead of focusing solely on your website, Local SEO focuses on your Google My Business (GMB) profile. When people do searches for nearby services or products, those results will be displayed in the right corner with the map highlighting where they can find any local businesses listed there.
