For one of our clients with 1000s of service area and storefront we have been doing SEO. We started doing local SEO in Quarter 2 of 2017 for its 20 locations to check if it works and its impact.
We targeted 20 top locations for our Local SEO project. As the listing already existed, we optimized all the 20 listings: Name (no keyword please) for business name consistency, Meta description, Updated Address, Fixed pins, added UTM parameters to URLs to tag the traffic from these listings, uploaded many images, added attributes, labels, additional categories. Then we also asked our customers to leave review for our business.
Here is a snapshot of local SEO impact on top 20 location pages performance:
Traffic: up 49%, Transaction: up 24%, Revenue: 77% and overall keywords rank improved on Google maps by 15%. Also, the local business directories contributed 2% to the local seo traffic. We are working on the next set of 20 locations along with the first batch of 20 locations and we expect much higher return on investment.
