Why Do We Focus on SEO?
SEO, what a complex and big topic. Not only is it one of the most complex, ever-changing marketing avenues out there, but you also have to recognize that we estimate about 80% of businesses have been burned by an SEO marketer before.
And to be honest with you, because of those two reasons, LocalFi has stayed out of SEO for a while, focusing specifically on Local SEO only. So why did LocalFi: SEO Digital Marketing Agency decide to build systems and an entire team around SEO?
Well, it’s just too profitable not to! The projects that LocalFi did take on with Website SEO were overwhelmingly successful for our clients. They were often able to grow three or more times faster than the business owner had set their goals for.
After the COVID-19 Pandemic came about, e-commerce spending went up 10x in just a month which is more than had ever been seen in the previous 10 years combined! At that point, we knew we had to create a solution for our clients to monetize their online assets during this challenging time in our world.
Time For A Change
So, the Founder of LocalFi, Isaac, set out to create a team that could not only duplicate the SEO success we were currently having, but create even more significant returns on results. So what did we do? We brought on an old-school SEO expert who knows all the fundamentals of SEO and is up to date on all the new SEO algorithms.
LocalFi also partnered with an incredible software development company. It’s cutting-edge AI SEO Technology allows us to essentially look at your website and compare it to your top competitor’s websites. It also gives us very important insights into how your website needs to be built and structured to outrank the competition.
This amazing SEO technology also gives us the ability to build many of the same backlinks that are linked to your competitor’s website, putting you on an even playing field when it comes to the backlink profile of your website.
Not only that, but this partnership allows us to have access to technology that gives us the ability to accurately predict which keywords we can rank for, taking a ton of the guesswork that most SEO companies have out of keyword research.
What’s The Difference Between Local SEO & Website SEO?
Let me ask you – have you ever used Google Maps or Yelp to find a restaurant, an animal hospital, or any other business near you? That’s what Local SEO is. Google Maps is the most used application in the world, with over 50% of the human population signing onto Google Maps at least once per month. Local SEO has been continuously shown to be the highest ROI marketing avenue that local businesses can take.
When you’re able to rank your business on major local listing platforms like Google My Business and Yelp, you’re able to be found by hundreds of people looking for your services and offerings right now. 45% of consumers click on one of those top 3 options in Google Maps, which appears above websites! You can understand how valuable that would be for your business to have the most prime real estate on Google.
Now let’s talk about Website SEO. SEO stands for search engine optimization. When your website has been optimized with a strong SEO foundational base, you’re able to increase the amount of high quality traffic to your website through organic search engine results.
When you’ve got a powerful combo of Local SEO and Website SEO, then you can have your local listings like Google and Yelp, AND your website ranking on the 1st page of Google!
LocalFi was already a leading expert in Local SEO, helping businesses across the United States rank their business online for Google Maps, Tripadvisor, Yelp, Bing Maps, and hundreds of other local listing sites. Now with our new All Inclusive Hybrid Package, you can also rank your website on the first page of Google for local search results.
Not only does this greatly boost your website’s visibility but the Google blended algorithm actually looks at both your Local SEO and your Website SEO to determine your business’s online ranking. Your website and local listing platforms work in strong conjunction with each other for the best results.
If you regularly rank your website number one in cities like Chicago, Phoenix, New York, and other major cities, Google likes to see that, and that greatly determines the national ranking of your keywords (or terms that people type into a search engine to find businesses like yours).
With a massive increase in e-commerce spending since the COVID-19 Pandemic, businesses are in need now, more than ever before, to be found on the first page of Google. This is why it’s more important than ever to be able to rank your keywords nationally to have your website appear on the first page of Google.
