Local SEO

Local SEO for Tradies – Why You Need It

How Google is helping tradies in business

While general SEO practices have evolved and become more complicated throughout the years, it has not lost relevance. In fact it’s become more relevant than ever before especially for small businesses and tradies given the trend and focus on local SEO.

Whether your trade business only services a small number of suburbs in your state or a larger scale region, here are some good reasons to incorporate local SEO to your marketing strategy.

Google has a soft spot for local businesses

It’s true. Whilst in the past Google has usually favoured big brands with good history and credibility, it also wants to give consumers what they really want, need and prefer – and that’s access to local businesses. And that’s you guys!

In recent times, Google has started to pave the way for small businesses to play in the same field as big companies with more emphasis on local search.

That is why local SEO has become more relevant in gaining new customers locally and investing in it could certainly lead to huge financial benefits for your business.

Customers want local targeted results

Consumers are more demanding and they want things to be more specific to them – and of course location plays a key part of this. No Sydney consumer wants to Google “local plumber” only to find one in China!

This has put more pressure on Google to work on delivering more targeted results – and that means making sure relevant local businesses like yours show up in these results.

A good local SEO strategy will therefore better connect local tradies to local consumers in the same local area. It’s win- win for everyone!

What actions can a tradie take to improve their local SEO

  1. Assess your current local SEO ranking.  Ultimately you want your business appearing in local Google search results for the areas you service.
  2. Get onto directories that can help improve your local SEO ranking. Check out Tradebusters Connect at www.tradebustersconnect.com.au which exclusively helps profile three top businesses by local area.
  3. Make sure your social media accounts reflect the areas your service. With Facebook and Twitter being so popular it is not unusual for consumers to seek local service providers using the search function tools on these platforms.
