Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) for Local Business

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) for Local Business
The economy is finally recovering, people are buying homes again and, with spring here and summer just around the corner, more and more people will be taking advantage of the warmer weather to tackle projects around the house or flat that are best done in weather when one can have one’s windows open for ventilation. These often include home renovations for which homeowners call upon skilled tradespeople to carry out most or all of the work.


This is all good news for tradespeople targeting a local market, but there’s something else to consider: that local market can be challenging to reach through the phone book and through traditional forms of advertising because people aren’t using the Yellow Pages like they once did for locating people who can do household repairs, fix the air conditioning or plumbing and so forth. As with everything else, people are now doing simple Internet searches (local SEO) to find everything they need. This is particularly true now that smartphones have become the norm. If your potential clients have Android phones, for example, you want them to be able to find your details simply by typing in “plumbers Newcastle” or “home renovations North East” from the Google search field on their phone.  The right key phrases will do the job just like magic.

This magic is called Search Engine Optimisation or SEO.

How SEO works is simple: the mysterious powers behind the Internet and major search engines such as Google and Yahoo rank the results of certain keywords, and top-ranked results based on those keywords or key phrases are displayed most prominently in search results. Going back to the plumber in Newcastle example, let’s say that you already rely somewhat on word-of-mouth advertising and have been recommended by past clients who remember which street your business is located on. Since the odds do not favour the presence of multiple plumbing companies on the same street, a key phrase such as “plumber (street name) Newcastle” is likely to reveal only one accurate search result, and this is the one that will lead today’s Internet- and smartphone-savvy individuals in Newcastle who have plumbing problems to pick up the phone and call you for their repairs.

But how do you gain this type of visibility on the Internet, you ask? In brief, you do so by developing relevant online content that Internet users will be directed to when they type in relevant keywords and key phrases. The expertise of an Internet marketing consultant can be invaluable to your business if growth is what you desire. Direct Submit Internet Marketing Services has been developing SEO marketing campaigns for businesses across the UK for over a decade. Our client-focused Internet marketing services are highly effective, even on a small advertising budget, and will have a significant impact on the growth of your small business for a fraction of the cost of television or other, more traditional forms of advertising. By taking advantage of our service, you can expect to see your business grow and revenues soar.

Failed Sound Testing in London

Failed Sound Testing in London
When a building fails the Part E Sound Test in London it may be down to a problem with the acoustic construction, this may be down to issues such as noise flanking etc.

Ongoing problems with airborne and structure borne sound are often associated with direct noise flanking transmission through floors and supporting walls and other associated structures such as the external envelope. One common cause of noise flanking and failed sound testing is often associated with the inclusion of lightweight blocks within the construction of the building envelope and/or blocked cavities. It all cases it is essential to establish if your problem is due to direct transmission, flanking transmission or a combination of both so that the most cost effective remedial treatment can be chosen.


Sound Testing in London
Unwanted noise travelling along flanking paths will make the building structure vibrate which causes the sound to radiate into your room. One simple cost effective solution is to build another wall or ceiling in front of the original, but not connected to it (often called an independent wall or ceiling) so it provides isolation between materials.

One way to reduce the chance of flanking transmission is through careful consideration to the design at the start of the project.  Unfortunately, by simply specifying high performance wall and floor partitions it is no guarantee to adequate sound isolation and successful sound insulation testing.

APT Sound Testing offer both preconstruction and post construction design solutions to achieve a successful sound testing in-line with Part E of Building Regulations. We also offer onsite inspection services to ensure that the sound insulation elements are being installed as per manufactures guild-lines. Even if both types of sound are emitting through the ceiling/floor then there are some easy installations that should reduce the sound levels and improve your sound test results. By advising on a simple cost effective wall and/or floor upgrade, we are able to forward simple to follow acoustic design reviews, utilising our extensive knowledge of different materials and construction methods

If you have failed a sound test and need acoustic advice on how to overcome the problem then please contact us at or call APT Sound Testing direct on 07775623464.

Importance of Local SEO to Your Business

Importance of Local SEO to Your Business
So your small, local business is up and running, and you have a website with basic information about who you are and what you provide and when. But does your target audience know your website exists? If not, then the awkward question arises: how do they know your business exists?

localseoLocal SEO
The benefits of local search engine optimisation are more specific to brick-and-mortar shops than to Internet-based companies.

It is important for any firm with an online presence to use SEO to their advantage; however, for local businesses, local SEO can make the difference between potential customers in your own neighbourhood coming into your shop to buy a product and ordering it on Amazon.

Likewise, if you own a restaurant, you want the people who live and work in the surrounding area to be able to view your full menu online and know your days and hours of operation; otherwise, they may very well pass you up for the corner McDonald’s and settle for food that they might not even want, simply because they knew what to expect from McDonald’s but not from your establishment.

And how do you go about drawing traffic to your website in order to boost sales, you ask? Simple: through informational online content designed specifically to increase traffic to your website by making your website figure more prominently in Internet search results for certain keywords and key phrases. To continue with our restaurant example, let’s say that your restaurant in the city of Newcastle specialises in vegetarian cuisine, and you would like to bring this to the attention of people living in your town as well as any vegetarians who might be in Newcastle on business or for a family visit.

By providing online content using key phrases such as “vegetarian food Newcastle,” “vegetarian restaurants in Newcastle” and “vegetarian-friendly restaurants in Newcastle,” your website will very quickly rise to the top of Internet search results for these phrases. And when your establishment is among the top three results, the odds favour your potential clients becoming actual ones.
