SEO is the best way to rank the websites for your business. For your local business, getting the proper SEO in place will help your business’ websites rank higher. Optimizing for local search SEO will help the ranking on both web searches and Maps searches. 

One of the first steps you should take is to submit your website to several directories and pages by including not only the name of the business but the geographical information. Be sure to keep the geographical information consistent from site to site. It will ensure that the Maps pages of search engines have the correct information.

Use a Schema Markup to give search engines more information about your business, the good and services you offer and the location. 

Another great step to have the website for your business to perform well is to submit your site to Google’s “My Business” and follow all of the verification steps. Submit your site to other websites that search engines may look at as bases of knowledge, such as Wikipedia, to further help your local search rankings.

Optimizing your website for Bing Maps, Yahoo Maps, and Google Maps can help your business appear in knowledge panels on search result pages. The location of your business can appear in map navigation programs and be found easily. The navigation may also be able to give you turn-by-turn directions to your business, allowing potential customers and clients to get to you easier. 

Having your site fully optimized with as much information as possible will help your rankings in local searches. Your address being optimized in search engines will make it easier for people to find you when searching on mobile devices.
