Local SEO and Google My Business Optimization

Implemented a local SEO-friendly website navigation structure targeting multiple cities in Colorado and optimized the Google Business Profile for improved local search visibility.

In response to the client's goal of reducing reliance on third-party lead providers and focusing on local leads within Colorado, I spearheaded the redesign of their website in WordPress.

My primary focus was on creating a local SEO-friendly navigation structure that strategically targeted multiple cities across Colorado, ensuring enhanced visibility in local search results. This involved careful keyword research and the implementation of location-specific landing pages and content. Additionally, I recommended a one-time optimization of the Google Business Profile (Google My Business) to further boost the client's local search rankings. By optimizing key elements such as business information, photos, and reviews, we aimed to improve the visibility and engagement of the client's listing in the local geographic area.

Through these efforts, we successfully positioned the client to attract and capture more local leads, reducing dependence on costly third-party lead providers while increasing their presence and competitiveness within the Colorado market.
