What is Local SEO for Franchises?

What is Local SEO for Franchises?

Local SEO for franchisees is optimizing a website so that it appears in search results for location-based searches. It’s one thing to use search engine optimization to rank certain pages, but local SEO appears when a customer is searching for a related item as yours in a city or region. There are several steps in utilizing a local SEO strategy for multiple locations, including geographic keywords, title tags, and meta descriptions. Not only are those things important but you also need to have specific location information within your website, and location-specific reviews.

As many franchises are established brands and are highly recognizable, they have an advantage against smaller companies and combining that with a local SEO strategy can be what you need to drive customers to the location of your business. In order for a consumer to purchase from your business, they must first know your specific location exists near them, they won’t be able to visit and make a purchase. Local SEO for franchises fixes this issue, it points your customers in the direction of your particular location

WebCitz designed our Alo Health website and did such a great job of walking us step-by-step through the process, knowing the tech world was not a strength of ours. We love that we are able to change content whenever we want, but if we run into problems, they are a quick email away. They have been responsive, reliable and efficient. Thanks, WebCitz!

Corey was extremely helpful and spent a considerable amount of time going over my difficulties with a newly created website put together by someone else. I was under a very stressful deadline and he was extremely considerate and helpful. He managed to fix the problems that I was experiencing with my website. I had reached out to a number of website developers for help but only heard back from Webcity and Corey got back to me within minutes!

What Is Franchise SEO?

Local SEO for franchises refers to the process of optimizing a website to appear in local search results, such as "dog daycare madison wi".

Search engine optimization allows you to rank for keyword phrases related to your products or services, but local SEO for franchises helps you reach customers in your area who are searching for those terms.

A local SEO strategy for multiple locations involves a number of tactics, such as including geographical keywords in your content, title tags, and meta descriptions, including specific location information on your website, and including testimonials and reviews for each location.

As a franchise, you already have the advantage of an established brand, and local SEO is a great way to help your potential customers discover your particular location.

In order to ensure the success of your franchise SEO campaign, there are several challenges as well as common beginner mistakes to avoid. Your team must understand (and know how to overcome) these challenges if you manage your SEO in-house.

Here are a few of the most common challenges associated with SEO for multiple locations:

  1. Duplicate content: Your website must contain original content. It is possible for local franchise SEO to fail if your website contains a large amount of content from another website, such as a fellow franchise location.
  2. Invalid NAP: Ensure that your franchise provides your name, address, and phone number. If you are promoting a location, do not include your corporate contact information. You should provide the information that your users are seeking: yours.
  3. Make every internal link (or link to another page on your website) count. When you link excessively or unnecessarily to internal pages, you can send a negative signal and reduce your chances of appearing on page one of search results.
  4. A franchise SEO firm (such as WebCitz) can assist you with your local SEO strategy if you are having difficulty. You can request a website audit from them and they will identify errors on your site and recommend solutions, or even take over the management of your SEO strategy if you are overwhelmed.

A professional SEO strategy for multiple locations includes everything your business needs to boost its online visibility, which can lead to increased in-store traffic, sales, and revenue. In most cases, your business and team do not have to worry about anything - your franchise SEO agency handles everything.

To provide some perspective, most SEO plans for franchises include:

  1. Developing a customized strategy for your brand or location
  2. Optimizing your website as well as your Google My Business profile
  3. Monitoring your website's performance, such as its rankings, traffic, and conversions
  4. Improving the usability of your website
  5. Creating new, optimized content for your website
  6. And much more!

Professional franchise SEO services can assist you in developing a successful SEO strategy for your business. They are especially helpful if your team does not have the time to manage your online presence, since search can bring a great deal of traffic (and revenue) to your business.
