Keyword research is one of the most important activities in SEO, and should be at the top of any priority list when it comes to digital marketing.

Essentially, every time somebody searches the internet, they are using keywords.
This means that keyword research is a prerequisite for building an effective local SEO and content strategy. If you don’t know the types of terms people are searching for, how are you going to plan and write content that attracts and converts them?
There are also things specific to local SEO that will help take localized organic performance to new heights.
