Frequently Asked Questions

Interested in learning about the latest local SEO strategies and trends? Browse our collection of valuable research, best practices, and guides.

What is it?

Local SEO is the application of search engine strategies that can help your website rank higher in specific local markets. These techniques include the claiming of local directory listings, building local citations, and on-page optimization. SEO has proven to be an important marketing strategy for those with physical locations. For a more in-depth explanation, read our guide on: What is SEO?

What sets CretMark apart?

Many SEO companies make impressive claims, but we have years of experience and the expertise to get proven results. Not only do we have SEO veterans on our team who have run effective SEO campaigns for some of the largest companies in America, but we have independent confirmation: Adam Heitzman, one of our Managing Partners, has been recognized as one of the country’s leading SEO experts by the Huffington Post, Forbes, and Search Engine Journal.

When will we see results from our SEO campaign?

SEO is more of a long-term strategy than a quick fix, but it consistently delivers the best ROI and is well worth the wait. It’s not easy to predict exactly when your website’s rankings will improve. Typically, however, our clients first see noticeable improvement in the first 90 days on their long tail keywords, and it takes around 180 days to see movement on their more competitive search terms.

Why start?

The higher you rank in the search engines, the greater the number of local customers you will see coming through your doors. Today’s consumers are using the local results of the search engines far more often than the Yellow Pages. If you aren’t visible on page 1 or the maps, you are missing out on paying customers. For more information, read: Why is SEO Important.

Will my website need any changes?

Generally, the websites we work with don’t need a major overhaul to optimize them for SEO — just some work on the code or content of individual pages. Most of our clients choose to have CretMark staff make these changes. However, if you’d like to implement the necessary changes in-house, we can offer clear directives for doing so.

What do your local SEO services cost?

How much an SEO campaign will cost can vary according to a few factors: the specific keywords you’re targeting, your website’s history, your business location, and how much work will be needed to help you meet your goals. CretMark provides cost-effective solutions for both large and small businesses, and we can design an SEO campaign that’s both affordable for you and gets real results. To get a free quote from one of our sales specialists, please call us at 888-598-4449.

Is your work outsourced?

All of our SEO experts are located at our corporate headquarters, so you have a proven SEO team that routinely works together to create the best outcomes for our clients. That helps us deliver the best quality of service and oversee each campaign.

Are there any guarantees of results?

There’s a reason why Google cautions against trusting companies that claim they can guarantee rankings. Because Google’s algorithm changes so often and so rapidly, it’s impossible to guarantee specific results. However, you vastly improve your chances when you choose a company that is a nationally known industry leader. CretMark has a proven track record of results and a dedication to providing the highest level of service to each and every client.

Do you manage Google My Business listings?

Yes. We can manage GMB listings for single location businesses as well as multi-units.

What are data aggregators?

Infogroup, Neustar Localeze, Acxiom, and factual are the four largest business data aggregators. They have hundreds of partners worldwide such as the Yellow Pages, White Pages, Merchant Circle, 411 and more. Their business listing data powers the overwhelming majority of online phone directories and mapping services.

What if I don’t have a storefront or office?

If you don’t have a store front or office, this solution is probably not right for you. We do have other solutions available for companies that are considered service area business, that don’t want their address published. Contact us for a free consultation to see what solutions we have available for your specific business.

What is local listings management?

The management and distribution of name, address, and phone number data across business listing directories to maintain accurate and consistent contact information. This process is a fundamental building block for local search engine optimization efforts. See Also: What is SEO?

What is NAP data?

This is the name, address, and phone number information for a business. This is used to publish contact information about your business to various online phone directories and mapping services, allowing for potential customers to find you.

Why is it important to have consistent data?

Consistent data is one of the most important local search ranking factors. Google analyzes the data from the aggregators and phone directories. The consistency of that data is then compared to a businesses’ Google My Business listing. To have a reasonable chance of being considered for top listings in the local pack of the search results and Google Maps, a high percentage of the NAP data must be consistent. With a high percentage of search users clicking and calling from these listings on Google, it is important to maintain this data.

Why is your service better than Yext?

Yext will get you listed on the majority of prominent local phone directories, but if you make the decision to leave, that information could be lost. That is because they overlay their listing information on top of the data provided to these directories by the aggregators. Once you leave, the listings over-time will revert to what is published by the data aggregators. From a local SEO perspective, our solution is superior because our service works directly with the data aggregators.  Your business data will be distributed to hundreds of their online phone directory partners, giving you much greater coverage. If you ever decide to leave, and we hope you don’t, the data we submitted on your behalf would remain with the aggregators, thus not losing your investment. This would only change if they believe your business changed names, moved, or has a new phone number.

Will this help me show up in Google Maps?

Having an active Google My Business page makes you eligible for display in Google Maps, but consistent local listings act as a catalyst for higher placements.

Will this increase my leads or sales?

If you are targeting a regional audience for one of your business locations, the answer is yes. There is a very high correlation of consistent business listing information with successful local SEO campaigns. Higher search rankings typically translate into more leads and phone calls for a business. See Also: Why is SEO important?
