We are experts at the process of getting traffic from the “free,” “organic,” “editorial” or “natural” search results on search engines.  With logarithms changing daily it is important to: 

Make your website mobile-friendly and be sure to test it using Google’s mobile usability tool.

Verify your business on business.google.com

Populate your Google listing with a vivid description, add pictures, add accurate categories (don’t spam this) and link back to your website homepage or contact page.

Build citations on high-authority websites. Where you get your citations will differ depending on your business type. Thankfully Moz put together a top citations source list sorted by business category as a free tool. (I don’t recommend automated citation building services, including Yext, Moz Local, Bright Local, etc. I’ve used them all and can attest that you can save money  by creating your citations manually.)

Use JSON-LD schema markup to mark-up your location data. Forget about microdata and the others. Google recently changed their minds about what language they want websites creators to use. Read Google’s instructions on how to properly install JSON-LD schema on your website. It’s relatively easy and takes about 10 minutes.

Find and remove duplicate listings on websites like YP.com, Facebook, Foursquare, Google, etc. Duplicate listings are a known negative ranking factor for local search.

Use Google Search Console to track website IMPRESSIONS. Remember, most people searching for a local business (especially from their mobile phone) will not actually click to your website. Impressions are the better key performance indicator when measuring local SEO success for 2016.
