Local SEO Halifax

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

local seo for Halifax business

The Town of Halifax has a population of around 88000 people which makes up for 0.144% of the total UK population. The local business websites that Halifax have on the web, make up for around 0.129% of the UK total local websites.

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

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