    When you place a search for a physical business on google you will see 2 search results then few local results. How do you improve the local results? Does it require a different technique than web site SEO?

    If you want to improve local results, do Local SEO means use keyword with location as if you are an Seo Expert and want to provide service in LOS Angeles in case you use keyword as Seo Services In Los Angeles. In this way you can get more local visitor to your site or blog.

    Use the correct geo-location in all on-page optimization. Do not use the geo-location that you would like to rank for. Submit your website/business information to local data providers. These data providers will feed your business information across the web to other business information channels, helping you build credibility across the web. In the long run, local submissions help you gain more local relevance and trust with the search engines and public users.

    There is no doubt that local strategy has grown to be much more critical than in the past and your Google Places listing is a great place to begin optimization. However, make sure you optimize correctly, strategically, and effectively across all buckets for a comprehensive local marketing strategy.

    first of all you should follow google guidelines on geotargeting. Also domain extension of your targeted location would be more preferable than general

    Focus on the two primary main local submission portals that supply information to rankings in Google Places. Maximize the information you present by getting into as several local submission databases as possible.
