“Things to do near me”
“Restaurants near me”
“Hotels near me”
Have you ever ranked for a “near me” search?
This is better known as local SEO. When people search for a product or service that they need, Google’s algorithm sorts information based on nearby businesses that match those keywords. Ranking your business for searches in your nearby area can drive local revenue towards your company and allow you to reach a broader audience.
There are some businesses that don’t need to rank as highly for “near me” searches. These include exclusive online retailers or other companies that aren’t tied to a specific location in order to provide goods and services. However, if you are a brick and mortar business, impacting your local area is incredibly important. You want the people around you to know you exist.
