Local SEO

Local SEO refers to optimizing your site so it shows up in the local search results. When people do a query that search engines like Google deem “local” in nature, they’ll show some local results. This can happen either because the user adds a location to the search term, or the term itself shows local intent. If you own a local business you’d want to show up in these results!
