What are the most effective SEO practices for location landing pages?
Landing pages that are designed for different locations you serve can be a very effective web design option. Not only does this show your potential customers or clients the different locations you cover, but ti also ensures that each location age has information specific to the area. This helps to connect with your website users, build trust and develop strong local ties. But how can you make sure your location pages ranks highly on the Search Engine Results Page (SERP)? Well, there are several areas to focus on, including:
- Interior and exterior images
- Original content
- Business directions
Using interior and exterior images where appropriate
Using images is a normal part of web design. But for your location page, you don’t just want any old image. Instead you need to include high quality, professional imagery of the interior and exterior of your physical property. Whether its an office block or a retail store, these images can help:
- Users find your business in the real world. This creates a sense of trust, and can help to also increase your sales and sign ups
- Users know what the inside of your business looks like.Believe it or not, this can be make or break for some customers, especially in the hospitality, leisure, tourism, and health and beauty industries.
- Show any nearby businesses that your users might already know of. If your’e situated in a shopping mall or a centre, this can help users plan trips more efficiently, and find your company more quickly.
- Show any parking you provide. This can also be a deciding factor for many customers and clients, especially those who require close parking.
Any images should also be optimised by size and resolution so that your page loads quickly and the images respond to different screen sizes.
Creating effective and original content
Although you might provide the same services in each location you cover, using the same content for each page is a big SEO mistake. Each page needs to be completely unique and original to secure the best possible results. Why not consider:
- Specific services or products. You might offer different services or products in different locations, so make sure to cover in detail what users can expect from your company in the specific location.
- Unique points. Why should your clients in Preston visit your store there, instead of the store in Blackpool? What makes your Preston store different and what can your customers expect?
Including business directions
The location of your business shouldn’t just be left to the street address. Instead, you should also include a map with directions to your business place. This helps the user establish where you are located, but it also helps search engines like Google understand your positioning in the real world.
