Online Local Advertising Tips

Claim your spot on Google Places – Get set up with Google Places and fill out all your local online business information. Include photos, coupons, product offerings, or videos. In description fields, insert some of your keywords (within moderation).

Use Google's Local Search Ads - It's crucial to appear on the map when users are performing local searches, especially on mobile. Learn about local search ads here.

Create “About Us” and “Contact Us” pages to target local terms — Add your local business hours, directions, and contact info. This content serves to reinforce your location with search engines.

Get your business rated – Good reviews can bring huge boosts to your business. Encourage reviews by asking for feedback in your 'offboarding' and through your Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Focus on social media — Social media has been proven to be an increasingly important factor when it comes to ranking for local search, so be sure to regularly update your Facebook and Google+ accounts.

Get your business listed in directories — Get your business listed in a number of online local directories, providing reputable links that can improve your local online search ranking. Also, get your business listed in local directories like your Better Business Bureau and local Chamber of Commerce.

Press Release — Getting media coverage can be great free publicity. And if you want to spread the word about your products, services or business, writing and sending out a press release is a must.
