I had just opened up a new martial arts center in Newport and wasn't getting any leads from my website. I was referred to Netrix by a friend and they updated the seo and copywriting on a couple of my website pages. Within a couple of weeks I was getting a steady stream of top quality leads which still continues to this day.Managing Director | Newport Martial Arts

I had a very vague idea for a business logo - within a very short period of time they had created several impressive variations on a theme. I highly recommend them for their professionalism, expert knowledge & impressively fast turnaround from rough draft to finished product. Excellent work from start to finish.Vendor Management | BP

Leisurequip approached Netrix after we lost a lot of traffic from our old website. Initially we wanted a backlink analysis thinking it was the only problem. Netrix suggested we build an entirely new website and search engine optimisation. We have been so impressed with Netrix we have kept them on to be our chosen website management team.Managing Director | Leisurequip

Netrix did an exceptional job for us. Right from the start they examined our proposition and how that play in the search engines. Search optimisation was a big deal for us and Netrix helped massively on that score. They found a fantastic domain and re-designed our logo to fit. We were ecstatic to see we ranked high right from the launch.Pro iPhone Unlock

Local SEO tips for small business websites
In modern business it’s vital you have some kind of online presence and equally important is that your local business website has great seo.
With so many people using the internet to find local services it has become vitally important that your local or small business has a website. Additionally of course, it has to be search engine optimised to a high standard. A recent study reported that 39% of people when searching on the internet for a particular local company or small business were unable to find them.
The unfortunate conclusion is that many local and small businesses are losing countless amounts of business. All because they have failed to shift their advertising model to the online paradigm. Local SEO Packages should not just be something you’ve thought about or might consider. It should be an absolute priority in much the same way advertising in your local newspaper or with the yellow pages once was. If you follow these guidelines you can go some way towards getting on board the internet bandwagon.
Take care of your meta data
Many small business seo newbies completely forget that you need to create separate and unique meta data for each and every web page. We would recommend putting your primary keywords at the beginning of each page title and make sure you include at least your city name somewhere in your page title, description and on your web page. We would definitely recommend implementing Local SEO Services business schema where applicable.
Local links for local businesses
Backlinks are like votes and you should always have a long term backlink strategy in place if you want to get your website ranking for important keyowrds. One part of your backlink strategy should be the acquisition of links from locally based companies and organisations like yours.
You should also try and get as many contextual backlinks as possible too, for example, if you run martial arts classes then ask your martial arts buddies around the country for a backlink to your website.
Create regular seo content
In another small business seo post I talked about the importance of seo copywriting and creating regular, informative content for your website. Don’t just let it die a dogs death like so many people do, adding fresh, new content will increase your digital footprint and your authority in the eyes of the search engine.
Try and write a couple of hundred words a couple of times a week and over time you will build up a useful resource for both your customers and potential customers and pick up a few good backlinks along the way.
