Hi Everybody,
There are currently 29.6 million small businesses in the U.S. (SCORE). 63% of consumers and small business owners use the Iinternet to find information about local companies and 82% use search engines (Webvisible & Nielsen). That means there’s a lot of opportunity for local SEO.

Recently I attended GetListed.org‘s Local University in Minneapolis which focused on how to optimize web sites for local search. Out of all the good information that came out of the event, here are 10 easy things you can do today to optimize sites and content to attract local customers :

1. Claim your profile

2. Upload Pictures

3. Control information across the internet

4. Ask for reviews

5. Bad reviews are good

6. Add local phone number

7. Have a full physical mailing address on all pages of your website

8. Think like the searcher/customer

9. Multiple locations need multiple landing pages

10. Treat Customers ‘Righter’
