WHY LOCAL SEO VS GENERAL SEO?
For most businesses in NJ, it is generally easier to get results and see your rankings improve through local SEO compared to “no location SEO.” There is typically lower competition when a search is defined by a geographic area. There are only a handful of Italian ice shops in Toms River, and only so many hotels in Seaside Heights that are branded as cheap, compared to the competition in a general search for Italian ice shops or cheap hotels.

LOCAL SEO NJ EXAMPLE
The screen shot to the left is a local SEO NJ example for the search “dentist Toms River.” A typical local search results page will include a map with suggested matches to the keywords typed, along with the normal organic search results (in this case, those appearing after the map, beginning with Toms River Family Dental).
The goal of Local SEO is to get your business within the map, text in the box, and in the organic search results below the box.
TEST YOUR BUSINESS
If you open an incognito window and search for your product/service within the area you serve, is your business listed on the map or in the box underneath it?
