Local SEO – How to rank your Local Business to Local potential Customers
Local search engine optimization (SEO) can be tricky. Not only do you have to do all the customary SEO stuff, but then you have to do a new layer of complex SEO activities. Most tech-savvy local-business owners have a decent idea of how to do local SEO, but diving to a deeper level can get confusing.
For Example if you want to be listed in Cyprus for LOCAL Services, list your Website and other Details in Local Cypriot-Cyprus Directories.
After all: If you need a Plumber or Electrician in Limasol you do not need to find one situated in Paris or New York and not even one in Paphos. You will want to find one in your Area i.e. Limasol!
The most important component of local SEO is a trinity of information known as the NAP.
NAP stands for Name, Address and Phone number.
Some people call it the NAP+W, adding in the Website for good measure. Any local optimizer knows this much.
What can get confusing, though, is the accuracy and consistency of this information.
A ConstantContact survey revealed some discouraging trends among SMBs. While 85 percent of small businesses say that it’s important for them to be found on local search apps and directories, only half of these businesses have ever updated their online listings! Fifty percent of these businesses know they have inaccurate listings, but 70 percent say that they just don’t have the time to update them at all!
Here are some LOCAL Cyprus Directories you could list on.
Most offer Free Listings or Enhanced Listings for a small Fee (such as “Featured Listing” in a prominent Location)
If you do not have the time or inclination to list your Business in these Local Cypriot Directories I am happy to list for a small Submission Fee to all of them.
(You will just need to provide your Listing Info, I will do the Rest.) And watch your LOCAL Inquiries grow!
