(PRWEB UK) 11 October 2012
Southampton based cleaning firm, CCL, today announced a partnership with SEO Desk in order to improve their local search ranking for their website, http://www.useccl.co.uk. The local cleaning firm, founded in 1976, provides a wide array of cleaning services to businesses throughout Hampshire. When asked why the firm entrusted its internet marketing activities to SEO Desk, director Dean Cummins said 'it makes sense to have a local company perform optimisations for local search'.
Local SEO can be defined as queries entered into search engines ,such as Google, which specify a locale in combination with a business, such as 'office cleaning portsmouth' or 'cleaners southampton'. 'For a business such as ours, which relies upon local custom, making sure that we're visible for such searches is really important' said director Dean Cummins. He continued, 'SEO Desk seemed to have a lot of experience in helping local businesses with their local search results and their sister company, Tempo, did a great job making our website, so it just made a lot of sense to choose them.'
Although search engines such as Google do favour local results above more generic websites, local search has proven to be a vital lifeline to many businesses, with many consumers opting to narrow their search to their immediate area by specifying a location with their search query. James Nicholson, director of SEO Desk, commented 'we're finding more and more businesses coming to us with the express wish for us to perform Bing, Yahoo and Google SEO techniques to their website to capitalise upon all these people performing local searches.'
SEO Desk, based in the neighbouring county of Surrey, has performed search engine optimisation work for a wide of variety of businesses ranging from Hotels to Locksmiths. Director James Nicholson, referring to the recent partnership with CCL commented 'we are pleased that out a very competitive marketplace, CCL chose us to clean up their website- no pun intended!'
