Local SEO vs National SEO

Getting into the top of the search results is the name of the game in online marketing. But making sure those search results give people exactly what they want is the key to growing a business. Here are some reasons to invest more in local SEO service rather than a national SEO campaign:

1. Less expensive than a national campaign
2.There’s less competition (half of all businesses aren’t utilizing local SEO at all)
3.Targets more specific keyword terms = higher conversions of searchers to clients
4.Helps your SEM budget
5.It takes less time to rank locally
6.Helps build a solid business reputation in your city
7.Boosts your national SEO rankings

With most searchers turning to maps for where to find the best [type of service], shouldn’t you take up more of the local top search results impressions for your type of service?

Results-Driven Local SEO Case Studies

These are the results of two clients who ended 2020 on a great note from our efforts. Both times, the search terms were “high buyer intent” parent keywords. All long tail variations like: near me, city, plural variations, etc. showed huge increases. We achieved ranking increases on key terms in less than a month!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is SEO?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. The primary focus of SEO is to increase your website traffic from organic sources. Typical when SEO is talked about it is in reference to Google search results but the goal of SEO is to increase free traffic from all search engines and referral sources. Unlike pay per click advertising, this traffic is free or as commonly referred to as ‘organic traffic.’

Are there any businesses where SEO or your services are not a fit?
Yes, we do turn away businesses because SEO or our services are not good fit for them. We are very transparent and will let you know if SEO might not work. SEO might not be a good fit for businesses that do not have the search volume to merit SEO compared to the potential ROI, the business is very niche, the industry is new and unknown, the product requires a long complex customer education journey, or the business has unrealistic expectations compared to their actual budget.

Do you work with those under HIPAA?
Yes, we do. Protecting patient data is important and you should hire a digital agency that understands and is aware of the risk of non-compliance.

Our consultants each have over 10 years digital marketing and SEO experience and much more in web design, we have built every type of site. However, our digital agency specializes in creating HIPAA compliant websites and marketing campaigns for medical professionals. We also provide digital HIPAA audits, consulting, and training. We are subject matter experts on digital HIPAA compliance. You could say the founder is a digital HIPAA therapist, since being under HIPAA and having his masters in psychology.

Do you offer other services besides SEO?
Absolutely! While we specialize in SEO and website design, we are a full-service digital agency. We offer a host of consultants who are experts in a wide range of digital services. We also consult on HIPAA compliance.
How long does SEO take to see results?
Since Google reported it had 3,234 updates in 2018, we cannot predict the future of your rankings. However, SEO works to not only drive traffic from Google, but also other organic sources to help you gain traffic. It is important to note that if you need leads now then we should talk about pay per click advertising.

Based off history with our clients, search engine optimization typically takes 3-6 months to see significant results for most clients. However, we do see measurable results earlier. SEO is an investment in the future of your business and unlike paid adverting, SEO continues long after the engagement period.
Can you guarantee rankings?
Ethically any reputable SEO agency or consultant would not. That is due to us not controlling what the search engines may change through any of the numerous yearly updates or what your competition will do. Any reputable SEO consultant will tell you this.

Any company that provides a guarantee should be treated as buyer beware and read the fine print. No company has inside knowledge or a special relationship with Google to submit you for higher rankings. if they say they do run away. With our experience we can make decisions based off historical insights, new emerging data research, and our testing sites that take a lot of the guess work out of search rankings. But we can not say you will get to this ranking in this time.
I see links for sale on other sites, why can’t I just buy links to my site?
Buying links from sites such as Fiverr or other link selling sites can cause big issues. First, buying links is against Google’s terms of service. If you get caught (and you likely will) you can lose all your rankings. Second, even if you do not get caught these sites are nearly always in the spammy or ‘bad neighbors’ of known sellers so they may still lower your rankings.

With Google’s Penguin update, having unnatural links can cause a penalty which can be hard to recover from. When we build links, we focus on quality outreach and our network of relationships we built over years of working in SEO to earn you natural and high-quality links.
Do you offer search engine optimization consulting?
Yes, our SEO consultant is happy to do phone, in person, and onsite consultations. We also offer SEO classes and corporate training. We understand businesses may have many reasons for looking for a consultant, they may already have an expert, a team, or they wear every hat. However, they sometimes get stuck and need a fresh opinion. We also have a variety of SEO packages if consulting is not enough.
I want to target all dentist searches (insert any single industry term); can you get me ranked for that?
For a competitive search terms that are broad like ‘dentist’ those searches are much harder to rank for. This is due to how much resources would go into ranking for that broad of a term. Also, you are likely not trying to focus nationally for your dentist SEO. You could rank there if a map appears on that search based of local SEO and the proximity to the searcher. That being said, we focus our efforts on more local searches in those cases. Like the search term with a local modifier.
Should I also do PPC in addition to SEO?
Pay per click advertising is a great addition to most SEO campaign. It can assist with finding hidden search gems, supplement sales while waiting for SEO to start to work, increase brand awareness, or help expand into new markets. While we say most SEO campaigns, there are times where PPC isn’t a good fit based on a variety of factors. We will let you know if or when PPC is worth pursuing.

How long does it take?
A phone, not long at all. I promise we won’t bite. Initial phone calls usually last about 15-20 mins or less. You can call either 612-787-2179 or 612-247-2290 to start your project quote today. Timelines for projects depend on the engagement and scope of work. Website Design takes anywhere from 3 to 4 weeks to much longer for larger complex projects. Most small business websites take between 3 to 4 weeks. SEO really depends on the competitive landscape of your industry. Typically, we see upward trends starting in the first month and then more noticeable movement from 3-6 months.
How much does it cost?
Think of us like your digital real estate agent. Just like a real estate agent would need to know your price range. We help you find a winning solution to best match your budget and project requirements. Our goal is to help make your online presence a digital asset that works to earn you more business even while you sleep.
Can I make changes afterwards?
All of our projects are built so you can take control of as much or as little as you would like. If your needs change during the project, we can adjust the scope of work or quote for the new features if it is a drastic change.
