Local Business SEO


An easy and efficient way to boost your seo ranking. The Local Business Seo plugin informs all search engines that your website is specifically a type of business located in the city you are in. This will enable local keyword searches like:
* Restaurant
* Painter
* Plumber
* Car dealer
and show your website in their location.

New: Seo Reviews on every page automatically created with star rating in google search as seen in screenshot-10.

This small simple plugin will immediately boost your seo ranking.

The plugin makes it simple to add important microdata information about your site for SEO purposes.

Employees and Founders can now be added to the microdata by group. Users name, profile url, email, and description are used. This will help with simple searches like “Bakery Chicago Mike”, where the person might remember the employee but not where they bought the item.

The plugin uses the information schema and incorporates the meta data into your websites footer using the wp_footer() hook form WordPress. The information is packed into the html code of the site and invisible to any visitor.

In the screenshot area you can see what the plugin tells Google about your business website such as

    Business Name
    Physical Address
    Hours of you are open
    Business contact information

What is microdata?

Microdata is data stored in specific tags that communicates with search engines that tells them what exactly in on your website.

Will microdata help my website’s seo?

Yes correct microdata can immensely improve your sites seo.

Will business type help my seo?

Yes adding the business type can improve your seo. For instance saying your website is for your plumbing business, the microdata will tell the search engine that your website is specifically a plumbing business without relying on the indexing robot to figure this out through the content of your site.

Effective and Simple

Downloaded the plugin two days ago and I can already see the search results in local areas of keyword searches. A plumber client of ours moved up 79 positions in two days for keyword search plumber in san francisco.

I was searching for a local business plugin for client websites, we have several and have to add this type of microdata our selves. This can be time consuming and costly if not done properly.

Two suggestions, one is to have a reviews page where we can enter in our own all in meta like you have it here and the other is to have services or products all in meta as well.

Thank you so much you just saved me money and time.
