Local Search & Local Listing Marketing Services

Expert Local Listing Optimization

Local search is a critical component of how consumers and prospective clients find businesses to work with. Over the years, Google and other search engines have learned how much people value seeing regional businesses show up within search results, and have reflected this by increasing the visibility of local search components within those search results. As a result, local search has become a critical part of everyday life for consumers and businesses.


As an experienced Google Partner agency that works extensively with family businesses, local businesses, and small to mid-sized businesses, GREENCREST gets how important local search listings can be for a company. Arguably, local search is far more important for smaller businesses than it is for large corporations. Best of all, local search provides an opportunity for smaller businesses to show up within search results ahead of large corporations that otherwise dominate search results.

Get the edge with ranking in local search:

Local search engine optimization is different from traditional SEO, so any local search strategy needs to understand the nuances of local search. For local search strategy, factors such as proximity, alignment of business information, reviews, and local listing optimization are all important factors that do not play a major role in traditional SEO.

  • Local listing optimization
  • Local citation management

  • Local Listing Management

    Your local listing is a key component in how your business ranks compared to the competition. Many businesses do not have their local listings properly registered and set up, and it’s easy for technical issues with local listings to arise when trying to claim new listings or manage address changes.

    GREENCREST can help optimize and grow your listings by leveraging the right tactics to be shown. Additionally, we manage ongoing components of local search listings across platforms such as updating holiday hours, writing and updating posts, adding new photos (as needed), and more.

  • Citation Management

    Citations are critical components in how search engines determine how local listings rank within search results. In order to rank higher, businesses should have more citations than their competition, and should also have more accurate citations. 

    GREENCREST works to help claim missing and important citation  sources, while also helping to align any citation sources that are causing confusion for search engines. These two items can help to dramatically increase local search authority, resulting in more exposure and more business.

  • Local Search Advertising

    Our paid search services include the ability to advertise specifically within local markets or to geotarget search ads within a designated service area. Paid search ads are powerful for being able to show up at the top of search results, which can be especially helpful considering how prominent mobile searches are for any type of local search.

    Local search advertising can be tailored and scaled effectively, so get in touch with GREENCREST to discuss how this can be an effective way to grow exposure and ROI for your business.

  • Local Review Management

    For local businesses, reviews are a critical, and sometimes frustrating component of rankings. Businesses with more reviews on their local listings and also with better reviews will often show up in the top of local search rankings. The challenge is getting a high volume of positive reviews in an online environment where unhappy customers are often more likely to share their voice than satisfied customers.

    GREENCREST can work with you to devise strategies and implement processes to improve the likelihood of positive reviews, decrease the prevalence of negative reviews, and to increase your ability to rank in local search through review management.

Our Clients Succeed. Period.
