Nowadays, people don’t rely on the yellow pages or local directories to search any local services. They turn to Google instead. So, it is importance for any size of business to have visibility over local search engines. local SEO is particularly important to "brick and mortar" stores and services, house-keeping, plumbers, electricians etc.

Local SEO is used to promote the local business and their services to local customers. It your business (your name, your services, address, phone number…) not just your website. So your new customers will call you or walk through your front door not simply visit your website.
More and more local customers use mobile phones and mobile ‘apps’ to find best local business while they’re walking around.

Local SEO is a great way for businesses to stand out from their competitors, because everyone uses Google and when their potential customers or client search for their services in Google, if they show up #1, it is instant credibility and people think that they are the expert.

Citations are defined as mentions of your business name and address on other webpages—even if there is no link to your website. An example of a citation might be an online yellow pages directory where your business is listed, but not linked to. Citations can also be found on local chamber of commerce pages, or on a local business association page that includes your business information, even if they are not linking at all to your website.

Citations are a key component of the ranking algorithms in Google and Bing. Other factors being equal, businesses with a greater number of citations will probably rank higher than businesses with fewer citations.

Citations from well-established and well-indexed portals (i.e., Superpages.com) help increase the degree of certainty the search engines have about your business's contact information and categorization. To paraphrase former Arizona Cardinals' coach Dennis Green, citations help search engines confirm that businesses "are who we thought they were!"

Citations are particularly important in less-competitive niches, like plumbing or electrical, where many service providers don't have websites themselves. Without much other information, the search engines rely heavily on whatever information they can find.

Citations also validate that a business is part of a community. It's hard for someone to fake membership in a chamber of commerce or a city or county business index, or being written about in a local online newspaper or popular blog.

Citations and links from these kinds of websites can dramatically improve your local search engine rankings.

SEO has grown significantly over the last few years, especially given the rise of smartphone usage and better connectivity while out and about. Although it has a lot of similarities with organic SEO, it’s eventually very different.

Local SEO is focused on providing results that are relevant to a searcher based on their current location. If I search for the best steak restaurant on my desktop right now, Google would provide me with results that are nearest to me.
