How to Do Local SEO

Local SEO is one of the most effective ways to reach customers online and increase traffic to both your website and physical location.

Local SEO is important if Google Maps listings dominate the first page of results when you search for your keywords or phrases. This is especially crucial if your competitors appear at the top of Google listings.

When someone searches for a local business, Google shows a variety of nearby businesses that are selected based on local SEO. So, if you aren’t investing in local SEO, then it’s unlikely Google will show your business in results for local searches.

You should also consider local SEO if you’re a business that strictly or primarily sells locally.

As attracting online attention becomes increasingly competitive, new digital marketing strategies are constantly developing. And while it would be futile to attempt to use every new trend, businesses can benefit from staying up-to-date on new strategies and considering how they can play a role in their marketing efforts.

Fortunately, as a B2B company, this means you still have the opportunity to start using videos before your competitors. That’s why in this post, I’ll go over a few key reasons you should consider making video part of your marketing strategy, and a few tips for using YouTube to reach potential clients.

If you’ve used Twitter this week, you’ve likely seen dozens of tweets about the platform’s switch from their 140-character limit to 280. And as with virtually every change Twitter has made since 2006, users have been mostly resistant.

When Twitter first announced this change in September, they explained that it was intended to help users more easily express themselves. They also cited differences between the amount of information that could be conveyed within the character limits in different languages.

For example, tweets in Japanese can convey about double the amount of information within 140 characters as tweets in English. As a result, Japanese-speaking users only hit the character limit 0.4% of the time, while English-speaking users utilize the full 140 characters 9% of the time.
