Local Search Engine Optimization, or Local SEO, refers to the process of “optimizing” your website to appear on page one of the search results when people search for the services you render in the towns in which you provide those services. It is important to note that we make a distinction between first page results within and outside of Google Places. Because Google Places generally limits your listing to the specific town or city in which your business is physically located, we offer this Local Search engine optimization for businesses that want to come up on the first page of the search results for cities in which they are not actually located.
Search Engine Optimization when performed correctly can be the best investment you will ever make in your business. When Search Engine Optimization you are building an asset, with advertising you are building a liability or a promise of future expenses to pay Google or whomever for the advertising services.
How does this service work?
You simply provide us with a list of ten targeted cities or towns, and another list of up to five targeted keywords. We will work to have your business appear on page one of the search results for as many of those keyword/city combinations as possible.

How long does it take to work?
Usually, you will begin seeing first page results within 60-90 days, or even sooner, depending on the competitiveness of the targeted keywords and the size of the targeted cities.
Why do I need this service?
Seventy percent of people now say they search online FIRST when looking for a local business. Of those, at least 60 to 70 percent use Google for their search engine. So almost HALF your potential customers are viewing the businesses which appear on the first page of the Google results page. That should be reason enough to explore Local Search.

Is this the same as Pay per Click?
No! This is search engine optimization. You are not charged anything at all for clicks or phone calls. Other than paying us (My Local Leads) for the optimization of your site for the given keywords and cities, you pay nothing for your phone calls and leads.
Why not just do Pay per Click?
You may want to run Pay per Click ads at the same time you are optimizing your website for first page results for your given keywords. The main difference is cost. Pay per Click advertising can cost thousands of dollars per month for unlimited clicks of your targeted keywords. Using My Local Leads for Local Search optimization costs a small percentage of that.
