Local SEO Bradford

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

local seo for Bradford business

The City of Bradford has a population of around 350000 people which makes up for 0.572% of the total UK population. The local business websites that Bradford have on the web, make up for around 0.408% of the UK total local websites.

3) Home improvement centres

5) Shopping centres
6) Computer repairs
7) Travel agents
8) Driving instructors
