Local SEO Marketing Services
Founded in 1998, SharpNET is one of the most experienced SEO firms in the US. We have been around longer than Google. Through the years we have earned considerable recognition and respect throughout the SEO community, as well as an A+ Rating with the BBB. We offer a high-performance SEO program catered to businesses seeking local SEO help. What separates a local SEO campaign from a national or international campaign is the intense focus placed on gaining local-based keyword rankings. Local SEO is key for all businesses, but especially important for businesses which cater exclusively to a local community.
Local SEO provides a unique advantage which allows local companies to outrank non-local competitors. Without a local emphasis, websites will struggle to be found by consumers seeking help from companies within their own community.
