Local SEO pricing FAQs

Got questions about the cost of local SEO? Get answers below!

How much does automated local SEO cost?

How much does automated local SEO cost?

Automated local SEO typically costs $84 – $499 per year on average. 

For a monthly fee, automated systems will submit your business information to data providers and business directories to ensure your business name, address, and phone number remain consistent in local searches.

While these platforms are easy to manage, they don’t provide much long-term value since they stop maintaining your listings when you stop paying. Automated services alone will not boost your website’s rankings in local searches.

For platforms like Moz Local, you can expect to pay around $129 per year for each location, depending on what package you choose. Platforms like Synup and Yext typically cost $300-$499 per year for a single location, and they offer volume discounts for larger businesses.

How much do small-scale local SEO campaigns cost?

How much do small-scale local SEO campaigns cost?

Small-scale local SEO costs $399 – $899 per month on average. The price you pay can depend on the agency you choose and their specific offerings.

A smaller-scale campaign may be the best option if you are just getting started with local SEO or if your business operates in only one location. While small-scale SEO campaigns typically do not contain all the bells and whistles of more comprehensive plans, they can help your business rank higher in searches to earn more local customers and revenue.

How much does comprehensive local SEO cost?

In addition, they often come with custom reporting, so you can see exactly where your money goes and easily track your ROI.

While holistic campaigns are more expensive, they set your business up for long-term success and help you achieve top ranking spots in search results.
