Local SEO and Mobile optimised websites are a must!

Many owners of small to medium businesses (SMB) and tradesmen assume just because their business is for a local geographic area that they don’t need local SEO for their web presence or an optimized mobile website. Nothing could be further from the truth!  So to illustrate that I have gathered a few facts for you to think about.

  • 46% of all Google searches are for local area goods or services
  • 60% of all American smartphone owners use their phones to make searches for local goods and services
  • 50% of all consumers who make a local search visited a store within 24 hours
  • 76% of local searches resulted in phone calls
  • 50% of local searches are to learn the address of a store or business.
  • 68% searching for a local business use the directions or phone number provided by the website
  • 18% of local mobile searches lead to a sale within one day
  • 87% of smartphone owners use a search engine once a day
  • 71% of people says they look up and confirm the location of a business online before visiting the first time
  • 60% of all searches are now made from mobile devices
  • 80% of internet users own a smartphone
  • 57% of users say they won’t recommend a business with a poorly-designed mobile site.
  • Google says 61% of users are unlikely to return to a mobile site they had trouble accessing and 40% visit a competitor’s site instead

Mobile SEO

93% of small to medium business websites are not mobile compatible

Can you imagine how much daily traffic and customers are going to the competitors because local businessmen don’t understand the change that has taken place right before their eyes?

So I want to address you local business owners and tradesmen  with a few questions:

  • Let me ask you this, do you own a smart phone?
  • Do you take it with you everywhere you go?
  • Have you ever used the maps features on your mobile phone?
  • Have you ever done a search on your mobile phone?
  • Have your children ever asked  you to go somewhere because they found it on their phone?

Local mobile search has brought about the newest wave of marketing revolution. First it was a printing press, then radio followed by Television, then the Internet and now the mobile internet. Each wave has shown us those who adapt and utilize the newest marketing technologies thrive and those who are slow to adapt slowly die.
