You may think you know your fair share of best Search Engine Optimization practices but what you might not know is that Local SEO differs some from General SEO. How different could it be? Well there are some elements that they share and some they don’t, but when it comes to the success of your business this can actually mean a whole lot. First and foremost it is important to know your audience and with this comes knowing that the kind of SEO you need is based on the type and size of your business. A multi-practitioner business like a doctor or lawyer needs a different marketing strategy than a home-based or single location business, a major difference between general SEO and local SEO is how you target your customers. Knowing your audience and demographic is key in any good marketing campaign. However, when it comes to local SEO add geography to the afformentioned list, when targeting keywords. It’s a huge missed opportunity if a potential client in your vicinity performs a search and your business does not show up. (Source)
