Understanding local search rankings
There are many factors that contribute to a website ranking high on a local search. These can be validation of your business listing across super directories, local maps, directory citations on smaller websites, accuracy of business listing, the number of reviews and most importantly ensuring that your website content and images contain the right mix of keywords that help search engines identify your business.
