Get Found with Near Me Searches

Local SEO & GBP Optimization

When citations by themselves are no longer enough to get your Google Business Profile (GBP, formerly GMB) listed in the map results, you need proven GBP optimization services designed to increase your restaurant’s online local visibility for near-me searches. We help you generate the signals and optimize your off-page ranking factors for Google that really matter, including citations, authoritative links, reviews, and content marketing.

Our Local SEO and Optimization services include a wide-ranging array of “white hat” SEO tactics that produce actual local SERP results.

Almost every GBP 3 Pack case study conducted since the roll-out of map results show between 30 – 50% of “near me” searches lead to a user clicking on one of the top 3 restuarants listed on the map pack. This is a huge amount of
traffic that is still being had by the businesses that are skilled enough to be in the top 3 positions for Google Local.

How we optimize your GBP listing

We create geo-tagged posts and photos of your best dishes, functions and events each month for your GBP listing which include company NAP details and information.

We painstakingly research your competitors’ categories that are ranking for your targeted keywords, selecting the top ones most likely to help us increase your local relevance and GBP optimization.  Additional listing optimization includes correct NAP details, address settings, map pin placement, hours, and labels.  We create a few GBP posts highlighting the most popular dishes your serve.

We set up a brand site within the GBP dashboard. This acts as an extra branded Google property and interlinks to the GBP listing, the main restaurant website, and selected brand profiles and features a Google Map embed, hours, and NAP information. A premium press release written with call to actions and complete company information, which we then distribute to many ABC, Fox and NBC affiliate websites.

We also add the proper Schema to your Google sites pages so that they appear more prominent in the SERP, in addition to creation of author profile pages to improve your topical authority.  The next step is to create many social accounts, which mirror the NAP and hours to create added authority and relevance.  Finally, in our link building phase, we get you listed on many business directories and submit the business information to the 4 most popular data aggregators.

Local Search

 Case Study

During the summer months in Salem, Massachusetts, the town and whole area is overun with tourists.  Restaurants competition is extream and a strong GMB profile is essential to expanding any dining business.  That is what we were able to do for this Mediterranean eatery .

Why Local SEO is Important

The key to all of this is to be found on Google when a hungry person is searching for your type of cuisine. The thing of it is, local marketing is not the same as a national or e-commerce SEO endeavor. Rather, there are specific strategies in the home services industry as it relates to being found for “near me” searches.  For example ranking your GMB listing and being found in the local map in the top 3 results.  This hyper-local marketing is where we excel.  It all starts with a competitive analysis of your compition and learning what local SEO strategies your compititors are using so that you have a benchmark and know where the bar is set.
