Local SEO is a big topic to tackle. Whether your Omaha business is just getting started or you want to focus your existing efforts, figuring out what to do can feel overwhelming. Big Red SEO has talked to plenty of businesses that simply don’t know where to start or what to do next. We want to use this post to help businesses understand how to strategize and begin moving in the right direction.

Assess the Current State of Your Local SEO

Before you can figure out what needs to be done to move forward, it’s important to know where your business is currently at in terms of local SEO. If your business doesn’t have a website yet, you’re going to have a long list of things that need to get done. But even for businesses that are already online, there’s often a lot of improvements that need to be made.

For example, as more Internet activity has moved to mobile devices, Google has made it clear that websites need to function properly on smaller screen. This is best accomplished with a responsive website design. For businesses that don’t have that type of design yet, their local SEO efforts will be stalled until they complete a redesign.

Identify One-Time Improvements and Ongoing Efforts

A responsive website design is a common example of a one-time improvement that may be identified during the initial audit phase of putting together a local SEO strategy. Other tasks will require ongoing efforts. Publishing blog posts and encouraging customers to leave online reviews are two common examples of ongoing tasks that are critical to a successful local SEO strategy.

By taking the time to identify everything that needs to be done and then properly classifying it into the one-time or ongoing category, Omaha businesses can get a realistic understanding of exactly what it’s going to take to make their local SEO strategy a success.
