What Is
Local SEO?

Local Search Engine Optimization is one of the most impactful methods for marketing any sized local business online. It’s a technique used by businesses to promote products and services to local customers, based on when and where those customers are looking for them online. And it’s extremely effective.

These results can be achieved with various methods. Some, you may be surprised to read, are completely different from what’s practiced in standard SEO Service. Others, meanwhile, are more straightforward, using common SEO strategies and specific local SEO services to get results.

Think of prominence as how well your brand stands out from the rest (in a positive way). This can come in several forms: links; articles; directories; mentions; reviews; etc. It is the trust and credibility your brand has built up with search engines.

Our Detailed
Local SEO Process

Website Optimisation

A strong foundation is vital to your digital marketing and Local SEO strategy. Your website (or landing page) is a major part of that foundation. Ensuring your website is properly optimized and aligned with Google’s and other search engine’s best practices is an advisable first step and where our process starts.

Our approach to website optimization is conversion-focused, employing improvements to the user experience as well as technical, behind-the-scenes changes that only your search engine sees. We follow a 36-point checklist, but some of these technical improvements include:

  • Unique and descriptive page titles and meta descriptions
  • Keyword-rich HTML heading tags
  • Optimizing images regarding file size and alt tags
  • Internal links plus authoritative outbound links
  • Schema

Conversion-focused improvements vary according to individual need and industry but may include navigation menus, reformatting pages for a better user experience, and ensuring your calls to action are clear and sensible.

Your website or landing page influences the visibility of your Google My Business page as well. This is the other integral part of your Local SEO, which we go into more detail in the next section below.

Google My Business Optimisation

Your Google My Business listing is the other key element of local SEO optimization. We described this element in full above, including screenshots of the Google Maps, Local 3-Pack, and knowledge panel listings. When you first sign with Shoutout Digital, we ensure your GMB page is claimed, set up correctly, categorized intelligently, and optimized accordingly.

Google updates GMB constantly, so we stay up-to-date on new developments to capitalize on early adopter opportunities. Our Google My Business checklist ensures your online presence looks as professional as possible to portray you as the obvious choice when compared to your competitors.

Review Generation

They're a vital part of local SEO and overall online presence, expected to continue growing in importance through 2020 and beyond.

These days, reputation is everything these days, especially when the internet makes it so easy for consumers to research products or services before making a final decision. Knowing the importance of reviews, we invested significant time and money into creating a review and reputation management system that we believe is the best available today. We are proud of this system, and a week doesn’t go by where we aren’t celebrating another win with one of our clients stemming from an impressive collection of online reviews.

 

Citation Building and Clean up

Although less important than the early days of the Internet, citations remain an important aspect of local SEO. At one time, they were one of the most important ranking factors. Businesses could literally outrank their competition in local results and on maps by having the most citations! Those days are gone.

Local SEO has become much more complex since then, and that strategy eventually burned out as Google’s algorithm progressed. Having said that, a consistent and accurate citation portfolio on the web's “top 15” directories still proves to be a significant ranking factor. According to the latest study put out by MOZ citation signals still account for 10.82% of all the local ranking factors.

We view citations as potentially being the differentiator, or tie breaker, in the cases when all else is pretty much even between you and your competition. A robust online presence with your profile fully built out on our chosen top 15 and other industry-relevant sites gives your business the edge in the rank war.

Our citation process is simple: Hand-entered citations on our top 15 and on the directories that are most relevant to your niche. In our own experiments, we have compared hand-entered citations verses automatic submission programs which have become quite popular. Those definitely have their advantages, especially in the time they save, but within such a competitive landscape, the details matter – and that includes citation building.

Reporting and Analytics

We understand that analytics and reporting don’t directly influence your rankings, but since we feel it to be so important, have decided to include it anyway. After all, it is an essential part of our process. We strongly advocate measuring and comparing results and making strategic adjustments according to that data to achieve the most optimal results every time.

As the great management guru Peter Drucker said, “What gets measured gets managed.” We provide clear and informative monthly reports that show the good and the bad. We strongly believe it is advantageous for you to know the online health of your Local SEO and your ROI. The goal is to demonstrate monthly improvements to you but also be transparent when there is a bad month.

With Shoutout Digital, this is not the way it has been for us. They are a responsive local company that has transparency and shows that they care.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Local SEO?

Local SEO (Local Search Engine Optimization), sometimes referred to as local search engine marketing, is an incredibly effective way to market your local business online, as it helps businesses promote their products and services to local customers at the exact time they’re looking for them online.

This is achieved through a variety of methods, some of which differ greatly from what’s practiced in standard SEO.

Fun Fact: Did you know that according to Google 46% of searches have a ‘local intent’ such as Perth Dentists, Perth Plumber.

Are you the cheapest Local SEO company in Perth?

The short answer is no. Our top priority for our clients is to provide a successful Local SEO campaign that will generate more leads and sales for their business. We don’t focus on beating our competitors at a lower price.

There are thousands of SEO Service companies out there who will promise the page 1 results to you for as little as $300 per month, but the majority of these companies are using shady tactics than can potentially wipe all your Google presence in the future if you get caught.

What type of business can benefit from Search Engine Optimisation?

Every business that offers some product, service or a solution can significantly benefit from a good, high-quality SEO campaign. However, there are instances where SEO is not the right solution for the business, and we will let you know up front if this is the case.

Is SEO better than Paid ads like PPC or Facebook advertising?

The reality is, both are vital to the success of your business. You couldn’t’t establish authority, organic traffic, and a solid online presence without SEO at the same time you couldn’t granularly target prospects by demographics, behaviours, locations, or specific keyterms without paid ads.

How important are keywords to my SEO campaign?
Keywords play a fundamental role in where your website’s listing appears in the search results. When users conduct searches, they use keywords to find listings relevant to their search query. You must target the right terms so you can reach people most interested in your business.

 

Are you an Australian based company?

Yes! We are a locally owned business based in Mandurah. But we provide SEO services nationally.

Most of Our SEO clients are from

  • Mandurah
  • Perth
  • Bunbury
  • Rockingham

Our SEO experts has been in the SEO industry for over ten years and have continually generated amazing results for our clients

How long before we see results from SEO?

The time it takes to see the results of a high-quality campaign depends on several factors like:

How old is your website: A brand new website with little to no authority can take twice as much time to rank than a brand that’s been around for ten plus years

What type of SEO you’ve done previously: Again, the same thing for a brand new website it can take a while too see the results of an SEO campaign if you’ve never done any SEO work on your website.

Have you been hit by a Google Penalty? : If a Google Penalty hits your website because of black-hat or dodgy practices by other SEO agencies. Not only it will take twice as long to see the results, but it will most likely be twice the cost of a typical SEO campaign.

An established business with an existing website generally takes around 4-6 months to start seeing results.

Should I go for SEO, Google Ads or Facebook Ads?

The main difference between SEO Services and Pay-Per-Click Ads is the time it takes to generate results. 

SEO Services can take an average of 4 – 6 months to start generating some traffic and results while Paid ads can get you going almost immediately. SEO and Paid ads work best when integrated and strategically aligned.

Benefits of SEO : 

Awareness and Branding: Visibility in search engines for your main keywords puts your business in front of potential customers without paying for every click to your website.

Return on Investment: Organic search engine traffic can provide an improved ROI over traditional forms of paid media and certainly improve upon PPC.

Sustainability: Unlike paid ads, organic traffic doesn’t stop the moment you stop paying the marketing platform like Google, Facebook Advertising and Instagram. This is why companies invest heavily on SEO while Paid ads are also running and once rankings and traffic are achieved, they can cut back on Paid ads spend.

How often do I need to pay for Search Engine Optimisation campaign?

SEO is not a one-time effort, most SEO experts would recommend it as a long-term marketing strategy. Website owners will need to keep track of their websites and it’s ranking all the time.

With so many changing parts, such as link degradation, evolving search engine algorithms, outdated content, and competition from other companies in your industry, SEO requires an ongoing commitment. Despite that, SEO offers a better ROI than most traditional marketing.

Do I need to hire an SEO agency to rank my website?

Not necessary. Although it is the best and fastest way to get visible results, SEO agencies can be quite costly for smaller businesses. When it comes to spending money on services, it all comes down to ROI, if hiring an SEO agency can increase more profit for your business to cover the hiring fees, then go ahead and hire one.
