Local Reach

In today’s world, everyone has a computer at their fingertips – their mobile phone. Research shows that four out of five consumers use their mobile phones for shopping, and that mobile searches lead to action nine out of ten times. Google and other search engines now include mobile users in their search results, so it is crucial that your company is represented in mobile search (local SEO).

ComScore did a recent study showing that mobile searches are location-based more than 60 percent of the time and that mobile users want to make a purchase less than an hour from the time they complete their search.

Doing It Right

The same elements that affect organic SEO, such as social cues, relevant backlinks and on-page optimization, affect local SEO as well. However, there are other important elements which greatly influence local SEO.

Top Tier Citations

It’s essential that your business have accurate name, address and phone (NAP) info in the top-tier electronic business directories such as Yelp, Google My Business, Bing, TripAdvisor and many others. At V Digital Services, we can claim, update and even create these listings for you to ensure that your business is represented accurately across the web.

Niche Citations

It’s great to have your business listed on the top-tier online business directories, but that’s not enough. Every month, V Digital Services will create more listings for your company on industry-specific local directories. We keep track of the top local industry sites for health and dental professionals, restaurants, education, travel, entertainment and more.

Custom Features

V Digital Services specializes in promoting special offers. We know they can attract new customers and repeat business from your existing clientele. Our Local SEO team optimizes your business’ name, address and telephone number information on a multitude of important business directories to ensure that your company’s information is accurate, easily found and relevant to user searches.

Aggregators Distribution

Factual, Infogroup and Neustar Localeze are the three primary aggregators of location data. These companies then send that data to local search engines. Similarly, Foursquare transmits location data to local search apps like Pinterest. V Digital Services will make sure your company’s information is accurate on the local directories which pull data from these aggregators each month, which means your citations count will grow exponentially.

Multi Location

At V Digital Services, we’ll manage information for hundreds and even thousands of locations, using our dedicated support and transparent status reporting. We’ll take the time necessary to maintain consistently accurate listing information for multiple locations of your business while providing you with insightful information on them. That’s why numerous major brands and agencies across the country trust VDS.

Reviews Monitoring

Online reviews are essential to build trust with potential customers. Studies show that nearly 80 percent of people trust online reviews just as much as recommendations from their own friends and family. At V Digital Services, we make it easy for you to monitor positive reviews from satisfied customers and respond appropriately to any negative reviews received.

    Citations are mentions of the business name address and phone number (NAP) on placements like online directories and websites. Search engines like Google consider a citation as a vote for the local business. The more relevant the citations are better.
    Google does not report on keyword ranking for local business listings. The information provided by Google will include the number of views and clicks your listing have generated over a specific time period.
    Services areas are built out by a mile radius from your location, cities or zip codes. Each area needs to be added to the GMB listing and will aid in "near me" searches related to your categories.
    Accurate NAP info, quality citations strategy, positive online reviews and an optimized website will be the base for your ranking success. Other practices such as producing content on your blog and interacting on social media will be your next step. Reach out to our specialists to learn more.
