Local SEO has many advantages in that it lets local businesses compete with larger businesses. If you have a shop front or a local office, you will be able to get a spot on the Google Map. The great thing about being positioned on Google Maps is that you are visible to people searching 'above' the fold.
Relevance Web Marketing took our Google Place listing to 1st place on the map for Saint Tropez villas - a highly competitive sector even though we have changed office address and phone number on numerous occasions. They found all our old citations, contacted them and changed all the details. We didn't know where to start.Thierry Bourgeot, Managing Director, Jetset Agency
Relevance Web Marketing can submit your business to Google Places, Yahoo Local, Bing Local Listing Centre, and Facebook Places. Once you are listed we can optimise your account for certain keywords that you want to appear for.

Once your listing has been optimised then it is time to promote it. We will get citations from local search companies, and legitimate reviews from parties who have used your product or service.
Local SEO and positions on Google Maps and Places is often highly competitive. If your competitor is consistently ranking above you in the local listings, their citation base is bigger than yours. Relevance Web Marketing has software that will track their citations and get you listed for the same citations as theirs in order to reposition your company above theirs.
