The Power of Local Search

Where Your Local Customers Start Their Search.

When people need a plumber, a hairdresser, builder or a place to grab a great pizza, they turn to Google. Local search is how they find businesses in their area.

I always knew that the key to growing a small business was being found on Google and Bing, but back then I didn't have the time to do anything about it, probably just like you.

You fight on Facebook and Social Media with an ever growing army of other local businesses, and being able to cut through the noise and reach potential customers, isn't an easy job, but it could be if you make the smart choice and either take our leads from a local business website ranking on page 1 of Google or rent the website exclusively for your business.

Consider This: 


Over 90% of search traffic clicks go to first-page organic listings, with the top 5 results on page 1 alone receiving over 70% of clicks.


The first organic result has an average click-through rate of around 30%, with CTR dropping dramatically with lower positions (position 10 has a CTR of under 1%).


70-80% of searchers ignore paid ads, focusing on organic results instead. This high percentage demonstrates the power of organic search rankings in capturing the attention and trust of potential customers.

Over 90% of search traffic goes to the first page of Google - FACT
Top results in local searches get a much higher percentage of clicks - FACT
People are more likely to trust businesses that show up high in organic search results. - FACT

You see the simple truth is that:

It's About Location: Local search is all about connecting people with businesses near them. If your website isn't optimised for local keywords, you could be missing out on valuable customers.

Intent Matters: People using local search are usually ready to buy or schedule a service. Appearing at the top puts you right in front of these motivated customers.

Trust Factor: Ranking well in local searches builds trust and shows potential customers that you're a reputable business in their community.

The Bottom Line: Local search isn't just about driving website traffic, it's about bringing new customers through your door.
