Understand Local SEO: What to Expect from Sandbox Communications SEO Services in the First 6 Months

Small business sign, which more customers see when you understand local SEO

Understanding local SEO is crucial for businesses looking to attract customers in their area. But unlike web design, SEO is an ongoing process that requires consistent effort to achieve and maintain top search engine rankings.

So, what can you expect during the first six months of investing in local SEO services from Sandbox Communications? Here's a breakdown of the typical process:

Month 1: Understanding Your Business

Our priority is understanding your business goals. What are you hoping to achieve with SEO? More phone calls? Increased website traffic? Once we understand your goals, we can tailor an SEO strategy to achieve them.

We'll also assess your current online presence. This includes tasks like finding your current rankings, reviewing existing content and backlinks, and analyzing your website's design to ensure it's user-friendly and conversion-focused.

Month 2: Website Audit and Optimization

A comprehensive website audit is essential. We'll use advanced tools or manual checks to identify technical SEO issues hindering your rankings, such as slow loading times or duplicate content. Fixing these issues can significantly improve your website's performance.

Next, with keyword research complete, we'll identify the best pages to optimize for targeted keywords. This involves optimizing titles, meta descriptions, header tags, and content to improve search engine visibility.

We'll also create or optimize local landing pages for local businesses to rank higher for location-specific searches.

Month 3: Building Local Citations

Local citations are crucial for local SEO success. A citation is a business listing on a directory website that includes your NAP (Name, Address, Phone number). The more consistent and accurate your NAP citations are across the web, the better your local SEO ranking will be.

We'll start with a citation audit to identify existing citations, find opportunities for improvement, and create a plan to acquire new citations from high-quality directories.

Month 4: Link Building Strategies

Link building involves acquiring backlinks to your website from other relevant and reputable websites. Backlinks act as a vote of confidence for search engines, indicating your website is valuable and trustworthy.

We'll develop a link-building strategy tailored to your industry and target audience. This may involve guest blogging, industry forum participation, or other link-earning tactics.

Months 5 & 6: Ongoing Optimization and Growth

The SEO process is continuous. We'll continue building location and industry-specific citations, implement the link-building plan, and monitor your ranking progress. We'll also look for any changes in the competitive landscape.

By month six, you should start seeing positive results in your search engine rankings. We'll also analyze website traffic to see how visitors convert into leads or sales. This allows us to identify areas for improvement and conduct A/B testing to further optimize your website for conversions.

Remember, SEO is a marathon, not a sprint. While you may see initial progress within six months, ongoing effort is required to maintain and improve your rankings.

Partner with Sandbox Communications to develop a data-driven local SEO strategy and watch your online presence soar!
