Strategies for Building Authority in Local SEO - ZainUlHaq.com

By every passing year, the authority behind the site has become the focus of every local SEO expert in Pakistan. If someone would ask me the reason behind this, which leads to more focus on authority and relevance especially when it comes to local SEO services in Pakistan, I will surely relate it to the updates in core algorithm made by Google.

Just imagine that you want to hire SEO services and looking for one in your community. What type of service provider will you hire? A well-reputed authoritative service provider or some unknown beginner. The answer is obvious. Similarity, every business entity wants to build authority in its community. Are you one of them? If yes then following are the steps with which you can build authority within your niche with the help of any professional:

Your content is your king

What does this mean that your content is king? It means that your content has some value and you can create an authority when you will have some valuable content on your site. Remember having content for the sake of bombarding your site with words will not serve the purpose.

Relevancy with your target market

Second key to build authority is to keep your target market in mind while creating your content. For example, if you are selling high tech gadgets and want youngsters to buy your product, then your content must have something, which may attract them. Always remember that a buyer buys a product or pays for service for some reason. Try to facilitate him and target mind of your prospects with the uniqueness of your brand.

Focus on your social responsibility

Fulfilling a social responsibility has become a new approach for businesses, these days. However, this strategy should be adopted in relevance to your business. For example, if you are selling clothes in Pakistan then you can introduce green clothing online on discount for Independence Day. This will make your brand prominent in the target market and will increase value and trustworthiness towards your brand being a socially responsible brand.

Improve your GMB Listing

Keep your business information including its name, products or service details, addresses, contact details, social media profile links, etc. updated in Google My Business listing. I would surely appreciate those companies, which will provide me with accurate information and easy access to their products or services.

Apart from these, you can also adopt the following strategies to increase the authority of your brand web page:

  • Introduce guest blogging on your site and also include local citations.
  • Add information about any local event related to your industry on your page
  • Link some sponsor websites
  • Add customer feedback on your site

Last but not least, try to maintain authority and relevance side by side as they both will go along to make your brand unique and trustworthy among the others operating in the market.
