How Localized Content Helps Your Business Rank on SERPs
Updated: Sep 16, 2022
Are you an entrepreneur? If so, you already know that ranking high on Google is essential to get noticed by your ideal clientele. But you might not know this: one of the critical factors in achieving a high ranking is localized content.
In this blog post, I'll briefly discuss localized content and how it can help your business rank higher on Google and improve your SEO results.
What is Localized Content?
Localized content is published on a website or blog that is specific to the geographical location of the target audience.
Why Is Localized Content Important for SEO?
One of the main objectives of SEO is to improve your site's visibility in search engine results pages (SERPs). When your site ranks higher in SERPs, it means that more people are likely to see it and click through to your website. And since localized content is specific to the geographical location of your target audience, publishing it on your own website can help you rank higher in SERPs for that particular location.
In addition to helping you rank higher in SERPs, localized content can also help improve your click-through rate (CTR). CTR is the percentage of people who see your listing in SERPs and then click on it to visit your website. A higher CTR often leads to improved SEO results because it signals to Google that people are finding your listing relevant and useful. Because, well, they are!
How I Create Localized Content That Ranks
Now that we've discussed why content is so crucial for SEO, let's talk about how I go about creating it.
Here are some things that I keep in mind:
1. Identifying Your Target Location
The first step in creating localized content is identifying the geographic location of your target audience. Are they located in a specific country, region, or city? Once I've identified your location, I can begin creating content tailored to your ideal clientele.
2. How I Research Keywords
Including relevant (high intent) keywords in content helps improve your chances of ranking high in SERPs for those keywords - SEO 101. I use keyword research tools like Google, Ubersuggest, and Moz Keyword Explorer to identify relevant keywords for my client's business and target location.
3. How I Write Compelling SEO-Rich Copy
Once I've identified some high-intent keywords, it's time to start writing!
Localization is one of the most essential elements in digital marketing. In order to be successful, you need content that speaks to your customers based on where they live or work - which translates into language and culture-specific references. Make sure to work with a writer that understands this.
When writing localized content for my clients, I aim to deliver valuable information that resonates & helps solve their problems.
I do this by including relevant keywords throughout your copy to help improve your SEO results. I will also do market research to identify a familiar and approachable vernacular for your audience. And don't worry, you'll never find me keyword stuffing!
Conclusion: There's no doubt about it—localized content plays a vital role in SEO success. The steps outlined above are how I create compelling localized content for my clients. And I can proudly say that I've seen this simple process improve their site's ranking in SERPs - BIG TIME.
