Zooming in on Local SEO with Lincoln Rinehart

We took August off, but we’re back! And, we’re back to our usual (oh, who are we kidding? There’s nothing “usual” about anything these days!) 7:00pm start time.


Did you know that almost half of all Google searches express local intent? Much more than searches for “CVS near me,” local SEO can affect any business with physical locations.

At its core, local SEO ensures that brick-and-mortar locations can be found online in organic search for relevant searches that express any kind of localized intent. This could be searches with city names, searches for establishments (e.g. “restaurants”), and yes the inevitable “near me” searches.

Local SEO involves a particular set of optimizations, all focusing on improving a business’s indications of relevance to the query, prominence for the product or service, and proximity to the searcher. This presentation will cover tactics for optimizing for local search, how to report on local search, and provide some bottom-line results that a business can experience when local SEO is done properly.
