    Murtuza has been God sent. Very helpful, very clear in his understanding of the project and then fantastic in the implementation. Did I say fantastic? Sorry, I meant to say, bending over backwards to deliver fantastic results. 2020 had been a very hard year and I don’t think any company would have supported their customers the way Search Marketing have. Kudos to you and your team.

    Local SEO Company

    Even if a business owner does not have a website that he has built himself, signing up for local maps gives a business owner a site to drive traffic to. He will also gain the benefit of being found on mobile devices that are equipped with map features (virtually all of them). The business can now be indexed by the major search engines and listed in the appropriate place alongside its competition. Once a website is built for the business, the local maps page can be linked, giving the website the ability to take advantage of the local maps application without implementing any new technology.

    Most importantly, potential clients will be able to find the business through a simple map search. They will also be able to view basic information about the business such as the proprietor’s name, the address and the phone number. Reviews may also be added to the local business page that will help to bolster.

    Google Maps Optimisation

    Here are a few more benefits of having your business successfully listed on the Google Maps – Potential customers or clients will know exactly where to find you and as a result, you’ll be able to appear at the top of search results, specifically for your service and your location. You will have the opportunity to add in opening hours, payment methods, contact information and anything else you may think is necessary.

    Benefits of Local SEO and Google Maps:

    Whether your business is in one or multiple locations, you can list each of the addresses and in order to stand out you are able to upload photos and videos to your listing. Adding categories, getting reviews to your listing & boosting the citation listings with the same address for your business on the internet will improve the exposure of your business. Whether you are looking to improve your existing listing or you want to create a listing for your business, we can help.

    How to Setup Local SEO using Google Maps:

    The setup procedure for each major search engine is a little different; however, the basic steps are always the same. A business first locates its address on the local maps program. The business then needs to sign up on the local maps program and identify itself. There will then be a short verification process that will ensure the person who owns the business is actually the one making the listing.

    The most important local business profile to have is a Google profile. First of all, it is free. Second of all, Google controls around 85% of all traffic on the Internet. Third, the process that Google uses is basically copied by Yahoo and Bing. If you can set up your business listing on Google local maps, then you can set up your business listing anywhere.

    First, navigate to the URL  . Click the “Get on Google” button in the top midportion of the screen. Type in the name of the business to see if Google has already identified it. If it is already identified, simply create a Google plus page by clicking “ok.” If it is not identified, type in the appropriate information; check the box that says that you understand the terms of service, then create a Google plus page.

    What are backlinks (off page seo)?

    Whenever another website or blogger hyperlinks to your website, this is called a ‘’. Essentially, when another website links to you, Google considers this as a vote of confidence in your business. Generally speaking, the more votes your website has, the higher you rank in Google. We help you get these backlinks through ethically sourced, white hat methods that Google loves.

    Google was founded on its ability to use backlinks to determine the most accurate search result to its searchers. To this day, link building is the second-half of every successful SEO strategy. It doesn’t matter how well your website is optimised, if you’re not actively acquiring backlinks from relevant authority websites.

    Here’s the truth. Effective backlink building costs money, in 2020 businesses are willing to spend $200-500 to acquire just a single link. That’s why off-shore SEO companies don’t cut it anymore (not that they ever had). The $100 per month you’d pay them won’t even cover the cost of a single good quality link.

    That’s where we come in. We’ve built out systems and SOPs that enable us to acquire 100s of high quality, powerful and relevant backlinks for your website without having to spend absurd amounts per link. Because we’re doing this on a mass scale, managing hundreds of clients, our cost per link acquisition comes down to a fraction of what it costs your competitors.

    That’s how we’ve managed to get our clients to not only come out of nowhere and achieve the first page in a matter of months but they’ve actually surpassed their competitors who’ve been doing SEO for years.

    Keeping Your Business A Step Ahead

    Every year Google makes over 500 changes to their algorithm and how they rank websites in Google. We study, test and collaborate with SEOs world wide to keep YOUR business on top of the ever-changing SEO landscape.

    With us you won’t be caught off-guard when Google disrupts the playing field and causes many of your competitors to drop in the rankings. With our white hat, safe and ethical approach to ranking sites, our clients have continued to prosper despite Google making numerous algorithmic changes.
