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

The Town of Doncaster has a population of around 110000 people which makes up for 0.18% of the total UK population. The local business websites that Doncaster have on the web, make up for around 0.29% of the UK total local websites.

Thus competition online in Doncaster is VERY HIGH!
