Your business may be in one location—but if you are not ranking in all the locations where your consumers are, you may be missing out on leads by simply not being found when and where it matters most to your customers.
Depending on a person’s geolocation, the same Google keywords searches will give them different results. Several factors are taken into account, such as their proximity, phone settings, IP address, and browser settings. What Google serves you, and what they serve your potential customers, can vary widely.
So how do you control what your customers see and tap into this hyper-local market? The answer is through proximity boosting. In this article, we will help you understand this organic marketing strategy, and why you should start taking advantage of it.
What is Proximity Boosting?
A proximity boosting strategy combines the power of local landing pages with Google My Business optimization to help businesses connect with local customers. This means that you can be seen both at the top of local search results and popular navigation sites such as Google Maps—so you can have your cake, and eat it, too.
Why is Proximity Boosting Important?
It helps customers nearby find you when it matters most. Restaurants, for example, can create an attractive, accurate, voice search optimized online presence within seconds and deploy it exactly when and where people are searching for delicious lunch options in your area.
With proximity boosting, you can ensure your business is prominent on voice platforms like Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant, and Cortana, while also improving Google search rankings for your products and services in these hyper-local targeted areas.
