most people think that in order to have successful local SEO, you must have directory listings. This is true to a point. First, though, you have to make sure that several other things are in order. (Directory listings don’t come first in local SEO.)
Then you have to make sure that you’re getting listed with the right local directories. Also, you have to know how and where to find the local directories that are unique to your geographical area. Plus, you have to ensure that you are optimizing for your geospecific hyperlocal neighborhood, not just the general location of your business.
1. Create Local Places Pages.
Of course, the first step is making sure that you have a local business page for all three major search engines (meaning you’ll have three different listings and dashboards to manage). You can visit here for Bing and here for Yahoo YHOO +0.00% to get started. You can visit here to get started with Google. All you will need to do is fill out your business information such as location, phone number, hours, etc. and then you’ll be all set with an account.
2. Optimize and Properly Categorize Your Page.
First, optimizing your local pages means uploading a good amount of quality photos (discussed later in this article), detailing your hours of operation, and listing the services offered.
Second, categorizing your business correctly is actually one of the most crucial steps to optimizing for local search. Several local search engines offer you the ability to place your business into 2-5 categories to help them understand what your business does. According to Moz Local, (formerly GetListed.org) search engines will “not display a business that is not categorized, or even worse, mis-categorized for a particular set of keywords.
3. Accurate Business Citations.
You need to make sure all of your information is filled out and you have consistent NAP (Name, Address, Phone) data for your company across all listings. It is possible that your business is already listed somewhere by someone else, but don’t panic! All you need to do is claim this listing, often referred to also as a citation.
