How successful your business website would rank with effective local SEO depends upon a number of factors including:-

Purpose of Local SEO

The purpose of local SEO is to attract as many as possible potential clients/customers to your website (hence your business) within the local area that you serve.  Often for a local business there are one to three major search terms that people use when looking for a local business.  These search terms therefore provide the highest search volumes and once achieved (ie number one on the 1st page of Google) this will bring in the majority of the business within your local area.

However whilst being number one is ideal, your website can still drive a significant amount of business to you ranking in the second and third positions.  In some industries raning on the 1st page of Google is sufficient to bring in a very noticeable increase in business leads (and hence revenue).

It is also important to realise that with me as your local SEO consultant I will not only be trying to achieve these large volume search terms, I will also be trying to rank you for any other search terms (they will have smaller search volumes) that will send business your way.

I often track and optimise websites for one to two hundred keywords thus ensuring that maximum business leads are achieved by your website.  Smaller search terms are usually easier to rank for, thus in the beginning local SEO will start to generate a small increase in website traffic, that will over time increase and increase.
