Local SEO needs to be a top priority of every business along with numerous other aspects of search engine optimization, reports TillerWebDesign.com
Des Moines, IA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/07/2016 -- Local SEO continues to increase in importance, with seoClarity declaring that local search engine results reach the number one spot on the search engines 93 percent of the time. This wasn't the case in the past, when only 25 percent of number one listings were local. For this reason, every business needs to have a local presence, as this gives the company a competitive edge. Local search works together with voice and mobile search to make it easy for businesses to be found. Google's Pigeon update, one that many aren't overly familiar with, shows the site's commitment to local SEO.
"Local SEO requires that a company focus on choosing the right keywords, app integration and up-to-date information in Google Maps, among other things. Tiller Media Group, a Web Design Des Moines company, understands the importance of this for companies wishing to make their name in a global market. Customers on the go turn to their mobile device for information on local businesses that can provide what they need. With the help of local SEO, every business can ensure they are found when a customer wants what they sell," Steve Hudspeth, president and CEO of Tiller Media Group, explains.
Information released in May 2013 shows that 85 percent of individuals make use of the Internet on a daily basis. This includes the use of the web for email and other purposes, thus businesses should never discount the importance of Iowa SEO when it comes to brand visibility. When possible, companies should try to show up multiple times in the first page of the search results. Websites need to accomplish numerous goals in order to be effective, however.
"In addition to helping a business acquire new customers and generate leads, the website needs to provide consistent branding and lower sales resistance. To achieve these goals, companies need to take many critical steps when creating their Internet strategy. Tiller Media Group walks their clients through these steps to ensure none are overlooked and that a complete and proven marketing strategy is implemented," Hudspeth continues.
Going local shouldn't be the sole objective of businesses in 2016. When creating content for a site, companies need to focus on using relevant terms, adding the keyword to internal links, the word count of the content and more. The mobile marketing strategy needs to be expanded on, as people are using their mobile devices more and more, and social media must be an emphasis.
"Tiller Media Group helps clients with these and numerous other tasks to move their website up in the search engines. From web marketing to online reputation management, clients know they can count on us. Contact us today to see how we can help you move your business forward in 2016," Hudspeth states.
