    Local SEO is geographical SEO. Local SEO can include things like targeting all the local things needed for the clients website locally. Local SEO can include getting listed on the map in Google places (or whatever name it is now).

    Check search terms that include "find" or "find a" place service.

    EG "Find a London Plumber" and check the way Google displays the results, that is some of what local SEO is about.

    Local SEO if you want it you can search on Google for "good local SE0 to hire" and find some good local SEO's

    lol! good thing you spelled SEO right.

    @OP, local SEO is optimizing your site for local promotion. RD pretty much said it all.

    most of the business are small businesses and majority of them are catering to local customers. a local dentist, florist, home renovator, auto repair shop, you get the idea. all these people server locally and therefore need to promote their business locally. thats where local SEO comes to play.

    you optimize your site and promote it in a way so that people in your locality find your site when they search for the product/services you offer.

    Local SEO is the optimization done mostly for small business for a certain geographical location, either being a town, or a whole region/country, as opposed to global SEO. So a key phrase combination like location + keyword (eg. Boston Locksmith) triggers a local search result, being more easy to rank in your local city, because Google search results will give preference to results located within a geographical boundary.

    If you don't know the answer then why are you replying? It is a way that seems to everyone that you are just answering to increase your posts here..
    Well, Local SEO is the SEO to promote a site locally in a particular location..Like if you want to promote your site in Google.co.UK rather than Google.com then you want to promote your site locally In UK search engine or location..

    Local SEO means optimizing your keywords/websites for any particular location, for example targeting Australian clients only, for this you need to have a domain name i.e. com.au which is for Australia only. Apart from this, you have to mention words, phrase related to your location, cities of your countries on on-page optimization. Then you can find sites for off-page optimization which are related to that location mainly.

    Local SEO means target the specific location traffic to the site.
    Local Business listing and Geo tagging are the effective strategies to target local audience.

    Hello Olivia Smith,
    Local SEO can be defined as the SEO techniques used to optimize a business locally. Means if you live in newyork, your business should be optimized for "best plumbing company ny" etc.
