IMPROVE YOUR RANKINGS IN LOCAL SEARCHES

WHAT IS LOCAL SEO?

Search engine optimization, or “SEO” is the process of optimizing many different factors so that search engines will rank you higher in their search results. Some businesses are looking to reach a larger audience, such as nationwide or even international. Local SEO focuses on increasing presence within a localized market, such as a town, neighborhood or metropolitan area.

Let’s say you owned an auto repair shop. If a potential customer in your area needed their car repaired, chances are they would use a search engine like Google and type something like “auto repair shop near me”.

On the first page of search results there would be a short list which would include a map, ratings, hours, phone number, directions, etc. There would be be other results on the page, but there’s a 92% chance they will choose one of the businesses in that short list. Ideally, that’s where you want to be. And getting there is achieved with Local SEO.

ARE YOU LOSING MONEY BY NOT RANKING?

HOW MUCH COULD IT BE COSTING YOU?

Obviously the answer to that question will depend on your industry and local market. But regardless it is a fact that if you are not ranking in search engines and your competitors are, they are getting more business than you. When it comes to making purchases from local brick and mortar businesses, more and more people are using some sort of search engine to inform their buying decisions. It’s mostly Google, but it can also be directory sites like Yelp, or GPS mobile apps like Apple Maps or Facebook Places.

And it’s not just showing up that counts, but also looking credible and trustworthy through good reviews and ratings. Have you ever found two identical items on Amazon but one had 10,000 5-star reviews and the other had less than 100? Between the two, which would you buy? Exactly. Luckily, our Local SEO service addresses all of this and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Local SEO cost?

That depends on who you hire. There are some low cost options out there, but they don’t get real results and their shady methods will probably get your business penalized by search engines (which is expensive to fix later on).

We offer 5 different plans with prices starting at $500 per month. All of our plans include dedicated support and full transparency into the work being performed. And we never use questionable practices that will get you penalized. To find out which plan is right for you, schedule a consultation with one of our experts.

What should I expect?

After you sign up we’ll start setting up your private marketing dashboard. Then we’ll make sure your Google and Bing properties are set up correctly and we will also get your business listed on over 40 local business websites. We’ll also consult with you about anything we need to know in order to create content that is consistent with your brand. From that point forward we’ll create and distribute new content, continually optimize your website, create new business listings, as well as helping you to get and manage reviews. We’ll create weekly and monthly reports to help you see how much traffic you are getting, and you’ll be able to track everything in real time 24/7 from your private dashboard.

Do you guarantee I will get results?

No. And to be totally blunt, if any “marketing company” tells you they do offer a guarantee on SEO, they are lying to you just to get your money. Google themselves explicitly warns website owners not to hire anyone who offers a guarantee. The truth is that no one can guarantee anything with search engines. Talk to any reputable marketing company and they will all tell you the same thing.

With that said, we’ve been doing this since 2011 and our team has worked on thousands of SEO campaigns. We have gotten amazing results for nearly all of them and we are constantly improving our methods.

Does SEO work for every type of business?

Yes! As long as your business offers a viable product or service, properly executed SEO can move your website higher in search rankings and drive more sales.

How long does it take?

Truly effective SEO takes time. Many of our customers start to see positive momentum in 3-4 months. In fact, over 82% of our small business clients can reach the 1st page of Google after 6 months if the right conditions are met. However, SEO should not be thought of as something you do and then stop once you see results. Rather, SEO should be though of as an ongoing investment in your business that rewards you more the longer you do it.

Do you use "tricks" to get faster results?

No, and we never will. There are basically two kinds of SEO: there are white-hat methods, which only use proven strategies that are approved by search engines and create lasting results; and there are black-hat methods, which use tricks that violate Google and other search engines’ terms of use. Black hat methods do not create long-term results and will get your website penalized. At Ripe Marketing, we value your reputation and ours, so we only ever use white-hat SEO methods.

How are the keywords chosen?

The keywords we suggest are unique to every business and are based on extensive research. We consider many factors including your specific products or services, industry, location, competition, and more. Our goal is find the keywords that will provide the most impact for your business.

How do I know it's working?

We provide total transparency into all of the work that we perform as well as the results. You’ll have access to a custom reporting dashboard that allows you to monitor your campaign 24/7. You will be able to track every aspect of your campaign, including work performed and every possible performance metric, all in real time. We also provide both weekly and monthly activity and performance reports for all campaigns, ensuring that we are always moving in the direction of your business goals.
