Tips to help your local search engine rankings

Search engines have come a long way in understanding the location of a web business without relying on such basic info as the IP location i.e server location. Google, especially, is all about bringing the world together, so it is against their mission to penalize a site based on their hosting providers location.

Tips to help local search rankings
  1. Use your countries domain extension e.g. .co.uk OR .com.au
  2. Register the domain to your countries local address
  3. Use Google Maps to register your business location
  4. Your contact page should have a local address and phone number in text
  5. Get lots of back links from other locally ranked websites
  6. Use GEO meta tags supplied in your Admins SEO settings
  7. Write your address in your terms page
  8. Create a Google + business page
Any major search engine will use these tools to rank you on local searches.
