Frequently Asked Questions

What is local SEO?

Local SEO (Search Engin Optimization) is the practice of improving your presence in search engines for local results.

Any business with a physical location has a variety of tactics/ strategies at its disposal to increase visibility online.

How Long for SEO to work?

The common answer you’ll hear among digital agencies is that SEO takes about 4-6 months to start reaping ROI.  This is misleading.

Many factors dictate the timeline of when SEO starts to pay off.  Competition, location, website age, reviews, and even macroeconomic factors can all contribute to your timeline for success.

Start a conversation with an expert today to get a realistic idea of how SEO can benefit your business.

What does NAP consistency mean?

NAP stands for Name, Address, and Phone Number.   This information needs to be consistent across all local directories (Yelp, Yellow Pages, Home Advisors, etc.).   Optimizing your online presence in this way reinforces your legitimacy in the eyes of Google, which leads to better rankings

What does content-driven SEO mean?

Content-driven SEO is nothing more than a different way of thinking about SEO.  Typically, when local businesses come to us for “SEO,” they don’t truly understand what’s happening to drive better rankings.

At Inbound Local, we develop a strategy focusing on the quality and quantity of website content (i.e., blog, service pages, and why us pages).  This focus on quality content is what develops trust, authority, and expertise in the eyes of search engines.

How much does SEO cost?

The cost of SEO is one of the most common questions surrounding SEO as a service.  Agencies will typically charge $50-$200 / hr for SEO work.  Freelancers usually charge the lower end of that range.

Unfortunately, quality SEO is usually not cheap.  It’s vitally important to work with an agency that knows what they’re doing.  SEO can carry immense risk.  Going the cheap route and working with someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing can hurt your rankings or, even worse, get you a penalty from Google.

What factors go into ranking better in google?

It’s been noted that Google has over 200 factors that contribute to your ranking on Google.

For local businesses, some main factors include Google My Business optimization, Google Maps optimization, quality website content, efficient user experience, and basic SEO fundamentals.
