Google Local Listing Optimisation
Whenever someone searches for a service by locality such as ‘Dentist Bangkok’, ‘Hotel Chiang Mai’ or ‘Italian Restaurant Sukhumvit’ Google will usually display a map of the relevant businesses in the searched area. Thus if your business is not one of the displayed listings those leads and customers are going to your competitors. We are experts at getting our clients a top 3 listing in the maps for competitive local keywords. (See our case study page)
This is separate from website SEO, and we have been able to successfully obtain a double first page listings for clients by ranking both their websites and maps for the same competitive keyword. So if you’re a local business that would be found by people using locality specific keywords then you need to ensure you are appearing in the top 3 to get a lions share of those leads and customers.
