    You should build Google business page (G+ place) then verify your local address and link to your website. This way may help you rank first on local search.
    Hope this help.

    Local directories, classified sites, business directories, everything that is local will help you. Social Media sites like Google+ will also help you a lot ;) (A hint: Think about where people in your country will find info about your niche too- it might give you some ideas, and this might help you drive more visitors too!) ;)

    Do you have keywords targeting your local area? I mean for example "new york law firm" or "seo services in los angeles", something like that?

    First of all we need to create a Google+ business page for our website & link to our website. once we linked our website with Google+ page, we should verify our local address for that page. This is the initial thing we need to follow to get promoted in Local searches. A part from this we need to submit our website in Local Directories, Classified site & Business listing sites.

    The very first thing you must do is to check your webmaster and set your location preference in search console. do local listing and classifieds . analyze your competitors and find out their backlinks, this will help you to know about the best place to target the audience.

    the first thing you need to do is to set your location preference in search console. After that you should analyze your opponent's website and find out why they have higher rank than you ( keywords, design, seo...). I often find my opponent's website on siterank.me . Siterank gives you useful information about both your website and your opponent such as alexa rank, bounce rate, google index...and even Adsense earning. Good luck!!!
