GETTING THE CLICKS FROM GOOGLE

Outranking Competitors

We look at how many people are searching for a particular term and how many of your competitors are "onto this". Chances are if you haven't found these keywords then your competitors haven't either. So therefore, these "low competition" search terms are easy to rank for and we get solid traffic to your website quickly and efficently.

We started using Marketing Now in 2015 to do some graphic design for a promotional flyer for our main certificate course. Then in 2017, Jeremy built our website exactly to our specifications. As we are a registered training organisation (RTO), we have many government regulations that we need to comply with. We were very happy with the website design and since the website was launched, we've had 1000's of visitors from google searches to our website. Jeremy knows the online space very well, in particular web design and SEO. His work is prompt and precise and the team always provide friendly customer service. I highly recommend Jeremy and the team at Marketing Now to any local business that is looking for website development and SEO services. Paul Deegan CEO EduTrain Australia

Communicates in a Way That Makes Understanding Easy For Us "Non-tech" People We have been working with Jeremy LaBrooy and his team at Marketing Now since 2011 and have found their service exceptional. Jeremy is methodical and detailed in his approach, but communicates in a way that makes understanding easy for us "non-tech " people. He explains everything he does and why he does it, which helps us in our understanding of the complexities of marketing, on line and off line. He and his team are highly professional and committed to getting the best results. We have seen a steady increase in our website traffic and clients booking in through the website since our involvement with Marketing now, and we'll continue to build on this with Jeremy's guidance and application. We have found Jeremy and his common sense yet creative approach to marketing a pleasure to work with, and cannot recommend him and his team highly enough

Local Search v Global Search

Local Search

  • Is used for businesses, services or products in specific towns, suburbs or cities. Eg Melbourne suburbs
  • Focuses on a local market and based around a physical location ie a shop or business premises or service area
  • Local search is very important if you are going to build websites for businesses and get them ranked well on Google. 

Global Search

  • Usually focuses on a topic, niche or product.
  • The target market is worldwide or national
  • Usually involves ecommerce or information products
  • Traffic volumes are usually high



What are the key factors of good Local SEO?

When optimising for local search, these are the factors you must include:

1. Keywords

  • Use targeted keywords that  includes the city and state.
  • Incorporate them in page titles, H1 headings, URLs (e.g., johnslandscaping.com/melbourne-landscaping-services), and meta descriptions.

2. Content

  • Create original high-quality and post content consistently .
  • Showcase reviews of completed projects and also post interviews with clients.
  • Always include the city & state in articles and reviews.
  • Utilize alt image text that sites your city and state.
  • Make sure your website design is clean and clear, focusing on layout, navigation. Also include vital details like your full name, address, phone number, business hours, and embed a Google Map on your Contact or About page.

3. Links

  • A big key is to build clickable links from other websites to yours.
  • For local SEO, obtain “citations” from business and review directories.
  • Maintain a consistent Name, Address, Phone Number (NAP) across all citations, as this can provide an instant boost to your website’s rankings.

4. Reviews

  • Reviews are very Important for many businesses now, especially if it’s a competitive market
  • Great reviews may be harder to get, so can be more powerful. Focus on quality and manage reviews effectively.
  • Not about quantity – all about QUALITY and MANAGEMENT
  • NEVER buy reviews
  • Try to get reviews on platforms like Google My Business, Facebook Page, Yelp, and TripAdvisor as it builds credibility
