What we do and Why we do it
Capital District Local Search offers reasonably priced citation services to get your small business listed and found online. We live here and work exclusively with Albany area businesses. Don’t get stuck working with a company that doesn’t know your market.
Small businesses have tight budgets. We know that; we’re veteran owners of a landscape design business. We started CDLS because we couldn’t find affordable local search SEO (search engine optimization) help in the Capital District.
Here’s a great, down to earth definition of SEO from computer science author Jon Duckett:
SEO is the practice of trying to help your site appear nearer the top of search engine results when people look for the topics your website covers.
I came up with this analogy – your web site is like a store sitting along a busy highway (the internet). Once people are inside your store, they like what they see and give you a call. But unless there is on site and off site SEO working, your store appears like a concrete block building with no signage, windows, or doors. People speed by you because they don’t know you are there. SEO puts a sign up that search engines can see and helps direct traffic to you.
Local search SEO lets you get organic search results; you generate traffic to your website without paying for online ads. Paying per click (PPC) can add up quickly. Optimizing your website and making sure your online listings are out there and correct will pay for itself.
Once your citation listings are in place we can also create a SEO friendly, responsive (works on mobile devices) WordPress website. Every website we create is customized to your business but is still easy for you to edit in the future.
