I remember when I was first confronted with a question related to local seo vs national SEO. When I first started learning about search marketing, I asked a friend for help with a local business. She asked me, “well, are you thinking about On Page SEO (national SEO) or Local SEO?”. I had no idea what she was talking about and it reinforced my belief that this whole world was a great big mystery designed to confuse me.
But I kept plugging away at all things SEO and the mysteries slowly started making sense. I hope this guide will clearly explain local SEO vs national SEO for anyone else who is confused like I was.
What’s the difference between the two? Where do their results show up? How are they similar? What platforms do you use for each? How can you best measure performance for local seo vs national SEO? All that and more in this blog!
