New York Local SEO is about showing up in Google and Bing for your target terms for local searches. For example, if you are a doctor in New York City, you want your services to appear in traditional organic searches and Google My Business listings. If you offer green card medical exams in the Brooklyn area, you would like to show up in Brooklyn for a keyword around “green card medical exams.”
This is where TM Blast comes in with a local SEO service plan. As you can see above, I’ve ranked my company as position two in Google for this term. Ranking at the top of Google for this phrase is how I generate monthly leads each month for my business.

NY Local SEO – TM Blast Ranking in Google Maps and Organic Listing
TM Blast ranks in two organic listings for the keyword phrase, NY Local SEO. The two organic listings spots are the map pack and the traditional organic listing. Having two listings on page one of Google leads to two opportunities for someone to visit my website looking for this type of service. I was able to achieve this top ranking in the maps and traditional listing in a few ways. First, I’ve been optimizing my Google My Business listing for that phrase, adding photos, getting reviews, adding products, updates, and much more. For the traditional organic listing, I built a dedicated page, optimized the content, the images, and much more.

ARP, ATRP, and SoLV
TM Blast uses a local ranking tool called Local Falcon to track progress for clients. In this image below, I’m sharing what that progress looks like for my business. One metric that I want to track is SoLV, which shows the percentage of time my business appears in the three-pack listing for the term “local seo”. As you can, I’ve been able to improve that by 16% from a few weeks prior through my optimizations.

What are Local Map Pack Listings?
Google (and Bing) both show organic search results for local search via a map pack listing. For example, if you search SEO Saratoga Springs in Google, my company appears in the local map pack listings on desktop, tablet, and mobile.
Bing (and Yahoo) will also show their map listings too. Below is a picture showing TM Blast ranking for a traditional organic listing + the map pack listing for that same target keyword. That means my business will effectively cover page one before a user can scroll down.
Will My Business Show up for Generic Searches to a Local Audience?
The answer is yes!
Local SEO is about giving Google and Bing the right signals that you are a local business offering specific services. For TM Blast, my business’s local map pack listing shows up when someone searches for “SEO” in and around Saratoga Springs.
Ranking for this term alone is how the business generates phone call leads and more each month. Use this example below to imagine how many more leads your local business would generate if it ranked at the top of the local map listing for that target term. Think generic terms like bookkeeping, home insurance, green card exam, financial planner, dentist, etc.
How is My Local SEO Plan Different from a National SEO Plan?
Both a local SEO plan and a national plan have similarities. Both focus on cleaning up your site’s technical problems, performing keyword research, optimizing content, and reviewing the results—however, the difference between the two starts after that.
For example, if I were working with a local client in Albany, I would have to understand where they serve and incorporate that into their content. That would include serving areas like Clifton Park, Saratoga Springs, Glenns Falls, and so on if those are the areas they serve. If they serve those areas, I will build new pages on their website that specifically target those areas to optimize for.
The same goes for Manhattan Local SEO projects. There are neighborhoods that make up Manhattan that are worth optimizing for than just for the city of Manhattan. That might mean that you serve an area like Upper Manhattan, Lower Manhattan, Harlem, West Harlem etc. Therefore, even if you are looking for Manhattan Local SEO or Brooklyn Local SEO, you would instead be optimizing more for the neighborhoods in that part of the city since the city is so big.
What is the Price for Local SEO?
New York Local SEO services is $1.4k per month if you are looking to optimize for a radius around your address. The client or TM Blast can cancel the agreement at any time. Every contract is a monthly basis. Also, if a business has more than one location and want both optimized, then the SEO price turns into a national strategy, which is $1.9k per month.
However, if you are NY company with a national audience (like an e-commerce brand), you would then fall into the $2k per month plan.
What Do Others Say About my Service?
Reviews are essential for my business to showcase trust. I can’t guarantee results, but I can ensure you get me to work on your account. Therefore, I’ll be putting my experience and track record into your account to be successful.
What Makes a Good Local SEO Client?
My best clients (both local and national) are the ones open to changes to their websites. I’m not an expert in your field, but I understand search engine optimization. Therefore, I will rely on you to review the content before I upload it to your site to ensure it is 100% what you offer. Again, you are the expert in your field, but you will need to work with me on incorporating the SEO strategy directly into your site.
Don’t expect results if you want to be 100% hands-off. The truth is that I will be in constant communication with you to make your website better. If it will take you weeks to get back to me, you won’t see results.
Do You Only Work with NY Local SEO Clients?
No, I work with any client that is looking for local SEO. Since I’ve been in New York since 2020, I’ve worked with local customers because of that. However, I’ve worked with local clients in Boston, New York City, Saratoga Springs, and all over.
