Why Local SEO is an Important Lead Generation Channel
SEO tools and strategies are constantly changing. All the while, it’s never been more important that you get found online when people go out there searching – particularly if you’re a local business.
Your website is the foundation for how you get ranked and found locally. It’s important to have a well put together website with unique content that is tailored specifically to the search results you want to show up in.
It is very difficult to rank for your most desired keyword phrases without great content.
