  • What is Local SEO?

    Optimizing your website content with additional location information about the business. Local optimization helps your business get found easier by search engines by your searchers within your area. Local SEO can put you ahead of your local competition.
  • How do citations help Hotel Local SEO?

    A citation is a mention of your business details, like business name, address, phone number, (NAP). Business citations are found in directories like Yelp, to social media platforms, other websites and apps. When you have multiple business citations, it increases the degree of certainty of what your business is about and qualifies it for better ranking opportunity.
  • How do you do hotel SEO?

    Hotel SEO revolves around understanding what customers want to see when they search for information about hotels or staying in your particular area. Google and the other major search engines want to display sites and brands that understand customer needs and can meet or exceed these expectations. The search engines seek sites with authority and expertise in the industry for which the user searches.

    Therefore, your hotel SEO should follow these basic steps.

    • Research your target audience and what they look for online. Keyword research, tracking website traffic, evaluating the competition, and speaking to existing customers can all help you learn more about what prospective customers search for online and what they want to know before booking a stay.
    • Set goals for your campaign. Only by setting goals will you know if your efforts allow you to reach them. For example, those interested in building their sales funnel might want to create a campaign that increases brand reach. However, a brand that wants to dramatically increase conversion rates might want to outlook at the numbers related to converting and the value of those conversions.
    • Create content that addresses the customer's needs. Focus on creating authoritative content that speaks to the searcher’s interests and incorporates the important keywords and key phrases researched in step one.
    • Build a site that follows the industry best practices. Make sure it is easy to navigate, offers ample internal links, and uses a responsive, mobile-friendly design.
    • Publish and promote the content you have written. Publish the content on your website and promote it across your channel. Promoting the material on social media, through email, and with paid advertising can all attract attention to the content, increase its engagements, and therefore naturally help raise its rankings.
    • Track your progress. See how your campaigns impact your traffic and conversion rates. Note which parts of the campaign worked the best and which had the most room for improvement.
  • Does Yelp help hotel SEO?

    Yelp is a review website where customers can rate and review local businesses where they have been customers. It helps other prospective customers better understand the experience they will likely have at the business and thus decide whether or not they want to make a purchase.

    Yelp, therefore, is a separate website and business from major search engines, like
    Google. It does, however, have its own internal search algorithm for people who make searches directly on the platform.

    For example, people can make searches related to local electricians. The review site then returns the businesses that it believes will do the best job of answering this user’s business inquiry. Therefore, gathering positive reviews can help businesses increase their prominence on the popular review site.

    Although Yelp might not directly help SEO, it can help indirectly. Namely, businesses with ample positive reviews on Yelp tend to earn the trust of others interested in their business. Therefore, their site attracts more traffic and their brand reputation begins to spread. Altogether, this helps to improve SEO. Google likes to see businesses with regular engagement, and positive customer interactions helps to vouch for the business.
  • Do hotels need FAQ pages?

    FAQ pages allow hotels to answer quick, shorter questions that customers ask Although they might not be required for a brand, they can be a good feature for those interested in further promoting their websites.

    With FAQ pages, hotels can target particular questions that customers have. It allows them the opportunity to build rich content focused on helping people with a variety of different questions. The helpful attitude is appreciated by Google and the customers themselves.

    With the FAQ pages, hotels can address a variety of different types of questions across a few different topics. The range of topics included in the FAQ portion of the site also make it easier for the business to touch upon different SEO keywords in a natural way. They also increase the chances of the business appearing in new Google SERP features, such as the ‘People Also Ask’ portion.

    Although the FAQ pages are not required, they can help businesses build a stronger, helpful digital presence.
  • What are the best SEO keywords for the hospitality industry?

    SEO keywords refer to terms and phrases that customers often use when making searches relevant to the hotel industry. When businesses search for the keywords that they want to target, they learn more about what interests or concerns customers about their particular business so that they can create content that their visitors will appreciate.

    Finding SEO keywords revolves around understanding precisely the audience you want to target and then learning more about their search behavior. Going strictly by search rates, for example, will not help businesses, as they want to entice customers interested in their particular hotel. Broad keywords targeting their area, for example, could easily end up accidently targeting people who already live in the area or people who have already booked a room in a hotel in the area. Both of these groups would offer little value for a hotel.

    Instead, to uncover SEO keywords, hotels should follow a few key steps.

    • Look at search rates to find the relevant terms to the area with the most interest and traffic. Then, run these searches personally to see how Google interprets the user intent and how that intent aligns with your target customer.
    • Investigate competitor pages to see the keywords they target and where they rank but you do not.
    • Speak with existing customers to learn more about what concerns them when searching for a hotel and the type of content they want to see.
    • Look at your site to see the types of content that already interest customers, particularly the content that people engage with before going on to book a room.
