Digital+ has many contractor related clients, electricians, plumbers, home improvement contractors, custom home builders, general contractors, roofers, etc. There are basic things that are required to be done in order to have an effective local contractor SEO campaign. The most important is getting the business information correct, consistent and spread out all over the internet by way of directory listings. The 2nd most important part of a successful local contractor SEO campaign is the correct categories, tags and keywords in all those directory listings and the local search engine local listings.
Do yourself a favor. Don’t underestimate the ability of sites like Manta, Yelp, etc. to give your business exposure to hot prospects looking for the service(s) you provide. We create a free OPTIMIZED listing for your construction related business on those sites and 150+ other sites like them. We just highly recommend not to do anything with them beyond the free listing Digital+ creates for you. Paying $30+ a month just for one site is not the smartest, highest ROI for your hard earned dollars.
Now what makes the local contractor SEO campaigns more challenging is the geographical size of their coverage area. Most construction related businesses have no problem with traveling 50 miles to a work site if the job is a healthy one.
Search engines’ local results, i.e. Google+ local (aka Places), don’t usually allow that big a coverage radius — especially in such competitive industries as the construction industry. Through the videos we create and the tweaking or website redesign (necessary if the website is old or completely non SEO friendly), Digital+ can give their construction related clients the geographical exposure they are looking for. That’s what makes our local contractor SEO so effective for our clients.
