There’s no doubt that website content is key to both ranking high in local search and converting customers. To move up the ranks in search results, you need rich local content that not only meets the searcher’s needs but also Google’s expectations.
There are a lot of mixed messages about the best ways to approach this, which can make it difficult to know where to turn and how to get started.
Luckily, we’ve enlisted local SEO expert, Claire Carlile, to create a brand-new BrightLocal Academy course—How to Create Website Content For Local SEO—to help you.
In this course, Claire looks at important types of local content, such as regional landing pages, service and product pages, blog posts, and evergreen content types.
During the eight lessons, Claire shares her wisdom on:
- why content is important;
- how to match content with searcher intent;
- how to use keyword research to inform a content strategy;
- types of content to create for the top, middle, and bottom of the marketing funnel;
- and what to include on pages to make them successful.
Here’s Claire with an overview of the course:
