    Hi Everyone, :p

    I am building my first website for the taxi/limousine industry and would like some advice from the more experienced in this type of website development.
    Anyone have experience in transportation/service area based website seo and can share a few tips?


    Any advice is greatly appreciated thank you guys.

    I can tell you this all depends on your location and how much competition in your area and putting a metric ton of hours into building relationships for referrals. The transportation industry is huge/very competitive, I did one a few years ago for the Decatur, GA Market (high end luxury niche) took about 8 months to get any traction doing it purely White Hat SEO. If you are willing to walk on the wild side and do some link wheels and social signals you can get traction faster.

    Without more information about your business location, model and niche it is really hard to give pointers. There are soooo many variables.

    Well its all about local SEO. Making sure you the city names in there and separate pages for the important cities and a page for each service type. Its no different than any local based business really, similar to real estate agents if you think about it. Do some local on-site SEO research.

    Thank you my friend, you are very correct it is all local seo that contains keywords and town names for example wales limo, boston limo, etc do you happen to have any idea where I can find guides for this type of SEO?
    I would like to learn local based SEO and tricks to use to show up often first on directories as well such as yelp,yp, google my business etc.

    Really depends on the terms that you are going after. Example if you were going ro New York Lemo you are not going to rank anytime soon. But if you were going for a smaller town then you would have a chance to rank faster and work your way up to the new york one.

    If you are in a big city then its going to be a lot harder. Pick some long tail terms that still get some good amount of traffic and go after those.

    We are located in the suburbs of a big city and we operate only in the suburbs, so the plan was since the town keywords in the suburbs are lower volume and close to no competiton besides yellowpages listings I'd work on volume of towns rather then 1 big city keyword,
    instead of 1 city keyword of 800 volume id go for 3 keywords in each town taxi ____, _____ cab,_____ taxi with a volume of 20-50 each keyword and do this for like 20 of the towns. What would be the best/fastest way to achieve that since there is close to none competition?
    Also what would be the best free keyword tool can be of use of finding these low traffic keywords/long tailed keywords?

    Search the forums here for local seo guides, I can't remember specifically BUT I do remember seeing good local SEO how-to guides here before. A lot of it is INTERNAL on-site optimization and siloing your site correctly with your cities/areas you are after. Just try the search bar here on BHW and you should find a few.
