Local SEO Services
Local SEO can help you increase the online visibility and demand generation of your website with locally focused campaigns
Nearly half (46%) of all Google searches are looking for local companies.
These are searches like:
“SEO Agency in St Helens”
“Coffee shop near me”
Local SEO is the process of optimising your website to attract more enquiries and business from these local searches.
By using locally-focused SEO techniques you can get more demand for your shop or services, at the exact time people are looking for them.
Stop relying on people walking past your shop in the High Street to get their attention.
The highest conversions from search engines come from local SEO searches.
This is because people making these searches are looking for an immediate service for a particular product close to where they are.
How many times have you yourself asked Google to look for “food near me” when you’re out and about.
Increasing your business’ visibility for local SEO searches means you can do more business.
You’ll get yourself in front of your potential customers, as they are looking for you.
We’ve got a range of local SEO services from local keyword research, to technical SEO fixes to locally focused SEO content creation.
But everything we do is about hitting the three pillars of local SEO search criteria:
If Google knows your business is relevant to a local search enquiry, you’ll get ranked higher.
Make it easy for search engines to understand how you meet the needs of a local search and get found by more customers.
Getting your business’ Name, Address and Phone number on local business listings and Google My Business allows search engines to understand where you are in relation to local SEO searches.
We’ll help you set up or optimise your Google My Business profile and suggest the best business listings to get to create a bigger digital footprint for your shop and services.
Getting your business’ name out there, building a reputation and becoming known by your customers is the best way to improve your local SEO results.
We’ll help you do this by getting more positive online reviews, fixing any technical SEO problems on your website and helping you improve your overall SEO performance so you stand out and become more prominent in local searches.
Whether you’re looking for a technical SEO agency or longer-term ongoing content creation, we’ve got a number of affordable local SEO services that can help you drive more traffic and demand generation to your online business.
Sometimes called “local pack” or “3 pack” these are the top Google Maps search results that appear at the top of search, above the organic rankings. This is where we want to get your business and we’ll optimise your site to get you there.
Create eye-catching local ads that grab customers’ attention when they search for your local services.
Place your ads in front of people at the time they are most in need of your services.
And only pay for the customers who actually contact you.
Listing your business on Google is the obvious thing to do when most customers are using it to find you.
We’ll create or improve your Google My Business listing to give you the best chance of being found.
Do you need help optimising your website for local SEO searches?
Is your site structure, tags, headlines and descriptions failing to generate results.
We can help you research the best local SEO keywords you need to rank for and optimise your website around them.
All of our local SEO services sit alongside a general SEO campaign so we’ll make sure we’re improving your overall SEO performance at the same time as improving your results for local searches.
Links in local business directories help to increase your site’s authority in the eyes of Google and get your higher up the results for local search enquiries.
We’ll help you identify the best directories and help get you listed.
Geotagging your images is a common way of including location-specific data into your webpage.
This is not something you are able to see with viewing source code but if you haven’t considered it you will be losing out to competition.
Make full use of Google My Business’ latest features including product catalogue, business name, full list of relevant services and allowing customers to book appointments directly through Google.
Posting to social media doesn’t just get you involved in conversations and raise brand awareness. Regular posting sends a social signal to Google that you’re active and a source of information for customers.
Get your business Name, Address and Phone Number listed in as many trusted places as possible in a consistent format.
Getting this wrong sends conflicting signals to Google and can harm your search rankings.
Create local SEO content that will increase your relevance and get you in front of customers at the exact time they’re looking for your services.
We can help you identify the best content to create to improve your local SEO performance.
If you need us to create the content, we have a team of SEO copywriters at your disposal who can fill your website with engaging, informative content that your customers are looking for.
Encourage your customers to leave reviews to show Google you’re a reliable, customer centric business that they should recommend. Engage with reviews as well to further increase trust in your business.
Creative SEO content with data-driven analysis make sure your website is always performing at its best for local SEO results. We’ll sort your tracking out at the start so you can see exactly what results your local SEO campaign is getting.
If you’re a small business looking to make your mark online and compete with bigger competition, then our small business SEO Services could be what you’re looking for.
We don’t work on retainers, so you don’t have to worry about committing to anything you don’t think you can afford.
Plus we’ve tailored our small business SEO services to be affordable and flexible to meet your budget.
Obviously, the bigger your budget the more we can do.
But if price is what’s concerning you, get in touch with a Paramount Digital SEO consultant today and we can talk you through a local SEO package to suit your business.

Paramount Digital have been helping me with our SEO and PPC for the last 2 years. I am very familiar with both areas, but needed help to improve our performance, increase the number of new leads, and get a better ROI. I can honestly say that they do great work, are a fantastic team, and most importantly – they deliver what they say they will. If I’m still happy 2 years later, that says it all. They are always available to talk when needed, they go the extra mile, and they really care about doing a great job. I can’t recommend them enough. David Hunter, Andrew Gillespie, Sam Rourke, and the rest of the team have shown me why it’s so important to listen to the experts in this area.

We always find that the staff are easy to work with and are always on hand to discuss new avenues and ideas to optimise our website. We find it hard to believe the negative review as Dave and the team have gone above and beyond for us, and we would highly recommend Paramount Digital to anyone looking to increase their online sales.
Paramount were our 3rd SEO company having tried 2 before that were basically useless, took our money for 12 months and did more harm than good.
Paramount are the real deal, have improved rankings and increased site turnover.
I find staff to be helpful and professional. They do know what they are doing. And whilst it wasnt an overnight success, nothing is with SEO, we are now benefitting from the hard work they have put in for us.
We have had no experiences like some of the negative reviews here and wish everyone as Paramount every success in the future. For sure we will be along for the ride if the upward trends continue…

Can you use Local SEO for ecommerce?
Local SEO is best suited to shops and services with a physical presence.
That’s because people making local SEO searches are typically searching for things like “coffee shop in St Helens”.
If you don’t have a physical shop for customers to visit, then Local SEO isn’t for you.
Can I use Local SEO to compete outside of my local area?
While Local SEO is focused around generating interest for a physical shop using digital marketing, there are cases when you could use local SEO for outside your immediate area.
For instance if you’re a plumber or hairdresser in St Helens with no fixed address, and want to offer your services to customers in Liverpool or Whiston.
In this case you could use some local SEO techniques.
It’s worth baring in mind that Local SEO is weighted more towards shops and services with a physical address that you can register with Google My Business and local listings, but it is possible.
