How Is Multiple Location SEO Done?
Running a local SEO campaign for multiple locations isn’t that different from what’s required for a single location. The principles are the same, but you may have to do a bit more legwork and keep track of the details.
Our approach to SEO for franchises/ businesses with multiple locations is built mainly on five strategies:
Building an effective SEO Strategy
We start creating a SEO strategy for the multi-location businesses. To personalize your customers experience, we first focus on:
- how customers search for your product/service;
- what devices they use to search;
- what the typical customer journey is like;
- what are the various SEO-associated touch points that can be identified, and so on.
Next we perform a SEO, content and conversion audit, to look at:
- Any penalties their website may have been hit with
- Any back links that have been linking to their website
- There’s considerable incoming traffic to the website, but visitors are bouncing
With the help of these audits, we can help you identify improvements to make. Once we have an idea of what we need to improve upon, and areas with growth potential, we can narrow down your objectives to develop a project plan by commencing a discussion with a team of SEO experts, technical staff, creative staff, brand managers, content creators and other employees about real-world timelines and resource availability. Simple right!
Conversion Rate Optimization
Website Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) and SEO work in tandem, as it helps develop an engaging website with better user experience (UX). One of the major determining factors in the success of SEO efforts is the UX of a website and it translates into
- Time spent on page
- Website visits
- Backlinks to your website
- Increased social shares
- More referrals to your website
- More conversions
Knowing very well that a solid understanding of our target customers is necessary. We target all these factors while improving website conversion. We also design every part of our customer’s website, keeping usefulness in mind – which means developing a responsive design (to work on all devices), each page provides value to visitors by offering a relevant solution to the reason that drove them to land on the page, using proper CTA (clear call to action) to increase website engagement.
To make a website search engine-friendly, we optimize it with all technical aspects such as
- Fixing all technical SEO errors
- Securing with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption
- Making the site fully functional and easy to navigate on all devices
- Removing broken links
- Ensuring pages load quickly
- Using high-quality content that’s relevant to your target audience and optimized for conversions
- Featuring location-specific content and an embedded Google Map of your location
The next thing to keep in mind in terms of search engine friendliness would be Google constantly evolving their standards for a Google-friendly website. We monitor continuously for the latest announcements and update the websites accordingly.
Developing Authority and Trust
We help our customers build authority and trust among their audience. These efforts result in increased monthly traffic, leads, and more importantly, being rewarded with higher results for our clients with multiple locations. Moreover, reviews are also an important factor that can influence your ranking. So, to increase trust and authority on review sites, we take these steps into consideration:
- Optimize your presence
- Strategically respond to reviews, even negative ones.
- Get more reviews by letting happy customers know you’re on review sites
A high number of reviews on sites like Yelp and Google My Business helps a business flourish and as a franchise or local business of a multi-location brand, you need to get a high number of highly-ranked reviews.
We encourage your satisfied customers to leave reviews, and we monitor and respond to those reviews. We also display reviews and testimonials on your website and implement strategies to engage with customers on social media
Good content that is related to one’s business and published online continues to be a vital tactic for bringing in traffic and conversions. Once we design a project plan based on the customer’s requirement. Franchises and multi-location businesses need to create location-specific content for their websites in the form of –
- Landing pages
- Press Releases
- Product copy
- Social media
Using these curated versions of compelling created content, these variations will increase your chances of capturing the attention of a previously uninterested visitor. Making marketing your message much more effective. Another good form is to use Guest blogging. It is also a great content marketing strategy as it can boost search results by linking back to the local business website.
