Our sites are built to load fast, they’re W3C compatible; and use the latest SEO (Search Engine Optimization) tools and techniques. These are integrated into the standard SEO practices that are still important today.
On ‘local business’ websites, these are some of the things needed to be Google© friendly:
- It HAS to be mobile – Google© actually ‘said so’ in April 2015*
- Fast loading speed
- Easy navigation
- Contain good content (your original content, divided into relevant pages and/or categories)
- Clear business location and contact information (Tap or click-to-call buttons on mobile)
These are some of the most important functions that need to be built into a search engine friendly website.
With the global transition to the mobile web, if your website is not mobile friendly it just ‘will not’ be found online. Unfortunate, but very true.
Do You Want to Be Found Locally?
Another powerful tactic for the local business operator, is to claim your Google© business page, who will than verify it actually belongs to you. Than, you add back links and ‘citations’ (another type of link) to your Google© business page.
If done properly, you will end up in the Google© Maps section of the search engines.
