An article covering the subject of SEO practices for ‘near me’ searches entitled ‘Near Me Search – How Local Businesses Are Found Online’ has now been released and published by Blu Ocean Innovations, an authority website in the online marketing niche.

Perhaps one of the most interesting pieces of information is that according to ‘Think with Google’, 76% of local mobile searches for something nearby result in a same-day in-store visit, and 26% of those visits result in a purchase. Adding “near me” to an online search demonstrates an intent to take immediate action on search results.

The article has been written by Nathan Pay, who wanted to use this article to bring particular attention to the subject of SEO practices for ‘near me’ searches. They feel they may have done this best in the following extract:

“Optimizing your business’s online presence for “near me” searches requires paying close attention to the location identifiers, service/product listings, and categories so search engines like Google know precisely where you are located and exactly what you provide to your customers. Because all search engines want to give the best results first, not only does proximity to the searcher matter, but customer reviews will influence how you rank when there are multiple choices within close proximity to one another.”

Blu Ocean Innovations now welcomes comments and questions from readers, in relation to the article. Nathan Pay, Executive Producer / Client Manager at Blu Ocean Innovations has made a point of saying regular interaction with the readers is so critical to running the site. This is because the readers share their relevant ideas and provide insight on what topics they want us to cover in a future blog.

In discussing the article itself and its development, Nathan Pay said:

“We are drowning in data that lets us know where, when, and how people are using search engines to make purchasing decisions. Today search engine users expect search technology to guess their intent and find the places they can get the stuff they need. Since “near me” is a popular phrase that shows up in search engine queries across all categories as people look for the closest options for activities, services, and stores, NOW is the time to use local SEO to earn new customers.”
