If not, local business will go to your competitors!

Google is placing more and more emphasis on making sure that search returns are relevant to a searcher’s local intent. This means you need to be there in order to get the business!

You need a Google Places page attached to your Google + profile. If you don’t know where to start or if you already have these and are still not appearing then we can help.

How can we help?

Our local SEO services cover the following areas:

Set-up (if required) and optimisation of your Google Places page

We will ensure that your Google Places and + Local information is fully optimised – this will give you the bedrock for ranking well.


This covers two main areas:

  • the best keywords to target -what words are your target audiences actually using to search?
  • why are other business ranking above you for your local search terms. This helps identify what needs to be done to make sure you can rank higher!

Citation review

Citations are instances where information about your business is appearing on other websites, and they are critical. We will check and correct how you are currently appearing, identify new opportunities and get new citations for you.

Your website

Google places emphasis on your own website as well as your Google + Places page. We will review your website and provide recommendations to make sure the site is ‘local ready’.

Other areas

Recommendations for other steps to take moving forward will be provided, especially around the area of reviews.

If you want to do the work yourself …

Alternatively, we can help you manage your Google Places optimisation yourself! This can be via a workshop, a site clinic or our Internet Marketing mentoring programme.

If you decide to outsource to Are You Ranking, the local marketing experts, you can sit back and relax. All you will need to do is wait for the phone to ring!
