When you type in search terms, the search engine uses a fairly complicated algorithm to try to find the results it thinks will be the most relevant for your search. In addition to relevancy, most search engines also offer paid results, which may not “match” the search terms as much as another result, but have been sponsored to appear at the top of the search results. All search engines use similar approaches, but because Google dominates web searches when people talk about SEO, they are generally talking about tailoring your content to align with Google’s search algorithms.

The point of SEO is to help conversions. Generate leads, etc. Using a strong content strategy on your pages will help rank higher than the content on competitors’ pages, making it more likely that someone searching for your product in your area will come to your website. Ideally, for SEO you want to be the very first result that someone sees. However, if you own a franchise location in a specific area, it is more important to be a highly-ranked result for your local area than just having an overall highly-ranked result. Local SEO is extremely important when it comes to Franchises and the websites must be set up correctly in order to rank in certain local areas.
Think about it. You want visitors to your website to become customers, and for local-type businesses, such as franchise locations, that means you need to target local people.

The power of a local map listing is one of the best ways to help drive visitors to your site.
