How To Establish Your Local SEO?

When you use Google to find out a restaurant near you, you will see the top search results usually with the location map. Not only you’ll see the pinned restaurants but also you’ll see their contact details, ratings, etc.

Local searches online are widely used by most people. So, this is also one of the best ways to increase your SEO ranking in Google in the context of your brick-and-mortar store location.

Local search from Google will give usually give the Local Pack, which is the business listing from Google My Business (GMB), and Organic Search, which refers to websites. Both of these are non-paid or organic results. If there are paid ads, these will be found above the local pack and organic search.
