Local SEO Ayr

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

local seo for Ayr business

The Town of Ayr has a population of around 47000 people which makes up for 0.077% of the total UK population. The local business websites that Ayr have on the web, make up for around 0.056% of the UK total local websites.

Good News! competition online in Ayr is Very Low!

There is still room for new websites and improvements from local businesses as Ayr is lagging behind nationally with search engine optimisation. Not many are doing keyword research in Ayr.

Small business Local Search Engine Optimisation in Ayr could be a much simpler process than you may have been told.

5) Removals and storage
6) Letting agents
