    I have a site for local business. I want to reach people only specified areas. Any ways to maximize google rank rather taking ads service. I want it legal ways.

    Have the content on your site revolve around the specific area you are targeting. Local Service Ads from Google would most likely help you out as well.

    In local SEO, your goal is to optimize your site to show in the local pack above all the other generic organic results.

    Before you do anything else, make sure you claim your Google My Business profil if one already exists for your business. Update your profile, add photos, videos, respond to reviews, post updates

    Local citations - name, address and phone number (NAP ) should be consistent, monitor them so search engines get clear information about the NAP. Make sure to build more and more local citations

    Implement Home - schema.org, a super important stuff for local SEO

    Local link building

    Spy on competitors’ backlinks

    Local keyword research - use tools with precise local data and local SERPs (such as KWFinder or SERPChecker)

    Analyze data in Google Search Console

    Optimize your content for local searches

    Create landing pages for specific locations if possible

    • Google My Business
    • Yelp
    • Foursquare
    • Yellow Pages

    Many of the local social media sites allow customers to leave reviews. This is a big determining factor in relevancy for your business in Google’s eyes.

    All the listing info needs to be kept up to date and consistent otherwise, Google will have a hard time determining whether or not your website content is consistent. To increase your rankings these elements always need to be consistent.

    For local seo you have to use GMB, apart from ads service you have to increase your organic search then only you can get the targetted people

    For local seo, you should get the link from local listing sites.

    I don't know is a " myth " or really work but after I search around is kinda true. One thing also help is sift your host data centre, For my case , my domain , hosting data centre at first default is in Asia region as one of my friend in Aust doing the domain , hosting , website for me before let me take over. I check the data centre is at Asia . I read before if you want to target USA audience , you can request to move to USA side data centre so that the USA audiences will access to your site more better , faster since is hosted at USA data centre by the hosting company. Is kinda standard I see from various hosting provider , they have 3 region , USA side , Europe side and Asia side data centres.

    It's very important to target only local things using your seo, in your content use only local keyword, get this info on your website title etc. Add your company address to google maps, try to use google my business. In mostly keywords, good article might be enough to reach top 10

    Create pages with the name of the city that you are going to promote and update meta tags and content for a specific city. This will help to promote local visitors for "keyword + location"
