Hi There,


I have seen in many local seo posts, optimize your website or GMB page for "Near Me Searches" but no one suggest how to optimize your page for Near Me queries. 


I would be very thankful If someone can suggest advance tips for GMB page optimization.


Thanks & Regards,

Hi @Mayur M


You cant optimize your GMB page for near me searches, Google automatically returns results near your location.


For your website on the other hand this can be done, or rather slowly achieved by creating relevant content that relates to areas near you. Google then begins to understand that you also provide those services in and around those other locations.

I have over time created content that relates to Northampton specifically. It does take time but eventually Google understands what you offer and areas you serve.
