The sites that matter when it comes to boosting your local SEO
You’re looking to attract customers near you?
Here is a list of the main general-interest sites for local SEO on which your customers and prospective customers will look for you!
Google & Google Maps
It’s a no-brainer!
Google cannot be ignored. It is the most widely used search engine globally, with over 90% of Internet users using Google and its Chrome browser. That’s where you have to be!
Local results are more highly valued by Google than websites. Try it for yourself by searching for your business on Google. The map is displayed above the websites. Boost your visibility there with a Google My Business account. Don’t have one? We can create one for you.
Facebook is to social networks what Google is to search engines: essential
Over 2.5 billion people use it monthly for chatting with friends, posting photos and above all sharing tips and recommendations with their contacts.
Share what you do with your community using Facebook. This will encourage people to come and find you using your address, your opening hours or your phone number.
And if your local information is on Facebook, the latter will also automatically update it on Instagram.
With 110 million users per month globally, Waze is now a permanent fixture on the dashboards of cars all over the world.
Whether you’re in the city or the suburbs, GPS will be one of the preferred ways for your customers to reach you, so make it easy for them to find you directly using their GPS. How can you do this? By creating a profile on Waze Map Editor and closely following the steps, or automatically through Partoo.
The iPhone addict’s favourite
Around 1 in 10 people in the world have an iPhone. Despite having been in decline for several years in certain countries, Apple has nevertheless managed to maintain a large share of the market and has primarily built a sense of user loyalty based on its apps.
Maintaining a presence on Apple Plan is therefore essential to reaching this audience and making life easier for the customers in question.
TripAdvisor is the largest travel site and is very popular among globetrotters from all around the world to live their trips to their full potential. Thousands of reviews are left every day on more than 7 million locations registered on the website.
Yellow Pages such as Yell in the UK are still widely used globally to search for local businesses and services. With thousands of requests on a daily basis made for local searches, don’t miss this opportunity to be seen!
We’ve talked about Waze and Apple Plan, but TomTom and Here are also very widely used. In fact, all the maps used by car manufacturers – Volkswagen, Ford, Renault, etc. – are made by one of these two!
