Local SEO Christchurch

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

local seo for Christchurch business

The Town of Christchurch has a population of around 54000 people which makes up for 0.088% of the total UK population. The local business websites that Christchurch have on the web, make up for around 0.067% of the UK total local websites.

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

Competitive Christchurch Industries

I also discovered the most active online industries in Christchurch and have built a short list below, starting at the hardest inustry to compete against locally.

1) Removals business
2) Car body shops
3) Travel agents
4) Estate agents
5) Central heating
6) Guest houses
7) Music management and promotion
8) Woodburning stoves
9) Advertising agencies
10) Chimney builders and repairers

These are the most competitive business types in Christchurch and indicate how much SEO work is needed to rank in these industries.

However just because an industry is very competitive does not mean their SEO is effective.
