1. Optimize Your Google My Business Listing

Google My Business (GMB) is a free tool that allows you to manage your online presence across Google platforms, including Search and Maps. Claiming and optimizing your GMB listing should be your first step in boosting your local SEO. Make sure to: 

  • Provide accurate and up-to-date information, including your business name, address, phone number, and website.
  • Choose relevant categories that accurately represent your services.
  • Add high-quality photos of your office, team, and properties.
  • Encourage clients to leave reviews and respond to them promptly.

2. Focus on Local Keyword Research

Understanding the keywords that potential clients are using to search for real estate services in your area is critical. Use keyword research tools like Google’s Keyword Planner or PorchLyte’s built-in tools to identify relevant local keywords. Incorporate these keywords into your website’s content, title tags, meta descriptions, and image alt text to improve your search rankings.

3. Create and Optimize Location-Specific Content

To rank higher in local search results, create content that’s relevant to your target audience and specific to your geographic area. Consider writing blog posts about local events, neighborhood guides, and market updates. Optimize this content with local keywords and add internal and external links to improve your website’s authority.

4. Get Listed on Local Directories and Real Estate Websites

Online directories and real estate websites like Zillow, Trulia, or can help increase your online visibility. Make sure your business information is consistent across all platforms, as inconsistencies can negatively impact your local SEO. Additionally, consider joining local business associations and chambers of commerce to get listed on their websites.
