If you’re having a business that serves certain locality then its very much important for you to consider LOCAL SEO and why is that?

Because Local SEO will help your business gain more visibility in the local search online.

The more visibility to the audience, the more traffic to your site, the more chances of converting those traffic into customers/sales.

To know how it works, We shall see an example

Let us assume that you are the owner of a very awesome restaurant, that is located in delhi

And me being a resident of delhi, who is in a mood for having a delicious dinner in a good restaurant near by me

Before l go out, i would like to see the list of restaurants in the locality or reviews

So what i will do? Obviously, i will google it “ Good restaurants near me” or “Good restaurants in delhi”

This is how presently Google will show the results


As a user : I will check all the restaurants listed in the above or first page in google.
And me being lazy, won't go for 2nd or 3rd page of the google results.
Select any one of them , check out review and head out to that destination.

You being the owner : You definitely want to be on those results. I.e First page of Google

If you’re not ranking first or somewhere in the first page of google, then you’re missing lots of potential customers.
