Local SEOOn-Page Optimisation
We start by finding the right keywords being searched for in your locality. Then we optimise your on-page SEO to ensure that its relevant for your local search terms. This includes schema and rich data inclusion to send the right signals to the search engines.
Setting up a Google MyBusiness listing doesn’t have to be a difficult task. But, as Google often updates the way its listing platform works this can mean the process of setting up a GMB account can quickly become confusing and complicated. We will setup your new GMB account correctly or even update an existing account so that it’s all in order. Whether that is for one location or multiple, we configure everything.
