What is local SEO?

This means that local businesses have a greater opportunity to interact with their customers and clients, reaching out across the digital universe in order to engage them where they spend most of their time: on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

The Google search engine results page is now incorporating rich snippets from these platforms into your local business listing when someone searches for your services or products.

How do I optimise for local SEO Hemel Hempstead?

There are several factors that need to be considered when optimising for local SEO Hemel Hempstead.

Firstly, you need to encourage customers to leave google reviews for your business. You'll need to follow the google guidelines when doing this to avoid being penalised.

Next, you need to ensure that your Google My Business (GMB) page is completed and up to date. This google business feature can take a while to configure and also requires location verification (they will send a postcard to your business address, when you receive the card, instructions for verification will be provided).

The more time consuming part of optimising for local SEO Hemel Hempstead is creating citations for your business. These are entries on index sites, such as yelp or yell that contain your business name, address, phone number and sometimes your website address.

Each citation needs to be consistent with the entry you made on your GMB listing.

The more positive reviews you have and the more citations you create, the better your chance of getting into the Google Map Pack.

What is the Google Map Pack?

When you ask Google to search for something, if it decides that the thing you've searched for is a service or product that can be satisfied locally (e.g. you look up 'Pizza Restaurant'), then Google will use its closest approximation of your location and show you a map with 3 results.

Here's an example - I'm in Hemel Hempstead town centre and searched for Pizza.

SEO hemel hempstead 3-pack

The Google Map Pack appears before the normal organic search results and is very prominent. Getting into this top 3 in the map pack is very important for local businesses. Local SEO aims to get a business in this top 3 for the desired locality.
