Local Search Engine
Search engine optimization comes up often when we are talking with clients and prospects. There are always lots of questions. What exactly is SEO? Do I have to pay for SEO? How can I tell if the SEO on my site is good? Where do I start? Here’s a quick overview on SEO and how it works.
What’s the purpose behind local SEO?
Your SEO is going to help ensure the visibility of your website when people search for your services. Everyone who has access to the Internet uses a search engine to find relevant and useful information – so being found through a search engine is important. According to Google’s own data, 97 percent of consumers search for local businesses online.

The many levels of Search Engine Optimization.
SEO is influenced by many factors. Some of these are:

- The number of links and backlinks on your site – and the validity of those links.
- Your listings on directories.
