I would venture to say that about 80% of our Internet Find clientele would like for their business listing to rank in cities other than the one that they are physically located in.
Even if your suburb is small, and only 10 kilometres away from a major city, guess what... you're still located in a small area and will probably only be seen by searchers living there - unless...
You can convince the 'powers that be' that your company primarily services another location.
That's right! It's not easy, but there are a few tips and tricks that can help get your Business listing ranking in cities other than where you are located.
So let's put your creative cap on, and let's dive in.
Geo-Targeting is the method of specifically targeting a result based on a location. For example, "plumber in Brisbane" is a geo-targeted keyword.
Internet Find displays your business listing on multiple industry city and location websites at once. So your business listing will be shown in many city suburb locations as our websites are geo location-driven.
The Google ranking algorithm is focused on supplying searchers with proximity-based search results. This often can create a problem as you can't have more than one location.
Google uses the IP addresses to decipher locations on desktop computers. This means I can physically be in one part of the city, but Google can assume I'm 10 Kilometers away from that location because of my IP address.
This can affect whether or not your listing is eligible to appear for someone who is searching if their desktop computer is placing them outside of your service area.
However, nowadays, people do most of their location-based searches from mobile devices which use GPS tracking for locations that minimize that occurrence.
Ranking outside of the city that you're located in isn't impossible, but it's also not easy, we have had years of experience to help you with this situation.
Just like with everything else, Google ranking with cities and suburbs takes time and patience. You're making an investment into the digital future of your business.
