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.

According to a study released by Chitika, more than 60 percent of traffic share (clicks on a search page) are attributed to the first three search results in Google. Take a look at a full breakdown of the top 10 Google organic listings and their average traffic share:

#1 – 32.5%
#2 – 17.6%
#3 – 11.4%
#4 – 8.1%
#5 – 6.1%
#6 – 4.4%

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.

The main reason for using a local SEO is that it will target the people in the area where your business is established. This makes a powerful tool for the small business owners who have lately started their enterprises.
Leverage local online resources like Craigslist, Angie’s List, and Yelp. Advertise in the local classifieds.
Make sure to upload high-quality images and videos and other items appropriate to your business on sites like these.

Local SEO can turn the tables for any local business. If you are looking to build a huge client base, you must find a reliable local SEO firm that can handle your business needs. When your web site pops out in results for other cities, those results are essentially wasted because these visitors won't convert to actual sales after all. It is the local clients you want, and this new trend could help you easily capitalize and build a better clientele.
