Kent SEO Agency Services
Did you know that more than 3,336,000,000 Google searches are conducted in the UK every day? Or that of those searches, 46% of them are locally based? No matter what a business does, it is now imperative that they are easily found online. And that goes at least tenfold for a local business.
Kent is most renowned for being the ‘Garden of England,’ a term coined by Henry VIII. It claims to be England’s oldest county, with over 17000 listed buildings. It is also home to a huge number of local businesses, operating in every niche. People search every day for these local businesses in Kent, even if those businesses operate completely offline. The big question is, will they find yours?
In a county that is resplendent in history and culture, as well as one that is a draw for tourists from all over the world, and some of the most innovative established businesses and startups and corporate headquarters for any Kent business, standing out online is a challenge. Effective SEO – especially local SEO – can be the key.
What is Local SEO?
Search engine optimization has been around for as long as search engines have. It’s the practice of implementing certain tools and techniques to help boost something online so that it is found at the top of the searches it should logically appear in. And it’s especially important for businesses.
Helping a local Kent business stand out online calls for a different set of tactics than a nationally based company might employ. For a Kent business, no matter what they do, reaching the people who live and work in the borough is the most important thing.
Even now, with Google well over two decades old, some are not convinced that their local business needs to focus on its online presence. However, there are increasingly powerful statistics that demonstrate that they are quite wrong.
Consider the following:
- 86% of consumers rely on the internet to find a local business
- 29% of consumers search for local businesses at least once every 7 days
- 80% of consumers say search is their first choice to find information on local merchants
- Local searches lead 60% of mobile users to visit a business within 24 hours
- 1 in 3 of these mobile user’s decisions are made right before a visit
These are just a few of the compelling numbers that make a great case for the importance of local SEO for your Kent business, there are many more (contact us, and we’ll tell you all about them.)
