Local SEO Aberdeen

One of the first places to start in carrying out local SEO in Aberdeen, Aberdeen City, is with competitor research, so I surveyed 70,000 UK local websites!

local seo for Aberdeen business

The City of Aberdeen has a population of around 195000 people which makes up for 0.318% of the total UK population. The local business websites that Aberdeen have on the web, make up for around 0.271% of the UK total local websites.
