Evaluation Criteria: Local SEO Companies
Needs Analysis
Needs Analysis Identifying Your Needs
We believe a reputable online marketing agency understands precisely how to identify the needs and requirements of their client. As a result, our evaluation process delves into the processes and strategies used specifically to identify the needs of the client which will most certainly impact the overall quality of the local SEO campaign being produced. It is important to take into consideration how much research your potential SEO company performs on you prior to hiring.
Keyword Selection
Keyword Selection Select Effective Keywords
It is important to understand that keyword selection differs greatly when compared to standard search engine optimization. We analyze how a company determines the proper keyword selection based on information specific to the local audience which their client is looking to capture online. Having a better understanding of local search trends and how local Internet users access websites ensures a more successful local SEO campaign.
Optimization
Optimization On Page and Off Page
Our analysis spans strategies for optimizing both on-page and off-page elements for a local search engine optimization campaign. We take a look at how the local SEO company merges efforts within a page and outside of a page in order to communicate to major search engines the relevancy of a particular page to keywords which are often used by local web users.
Localization
Localization Local Specific Strategy
The concept of localization focuses on spending time performing research and behavioral analysis of local web users within a given industry to better understand the target audience. This also includes being able to tailor content towards specific biases or trends within a local market when compared to the broader spectrum within the industry of the client. We evaluate whether the local SEO company understands how the local users think in terms of the products and/or services of the client.
Reporting
Reporting In-Depth Reports & Metrics
For local SEO projects, the aspect of reporting is a vitally important component. Having a report which not only outlines the steps taken, but the results achieved and the recommended steps to take in the future ensures the client is getting a comprehensive look at their search marketing for future benefit. It is important for local SEO companies to always look towards where they can take a campaign in the future or how they can maintain the rankings achieved.
