New Academy Course: How to Perform Local SEO Audits for Multi-location Businesses


Developing an effective SEO strategy is a process that requires time, knowledge, and the right tools. It also requires an adequate amount of insightful preparation!

Before getting started with a new strategy, it’s important to conduct an SEO audit. This audit will be the foundation of your marketing efforts and will help you to develop a full understanding of the project.

When there are multiple locations of the same business to consider, there will also be additional considerations for your ongoing SEO strategy. In this instance, compiling a comprehensive local SEO audit will enable you to approach your project with confidence and expertise.

Our new BrightLocal Academy course—How to Perform Local SEO Audits for Multi-location Businesses—will teach you all you need to know to develop a winning process for auditing the SEO of tons of locations at a time.

This course—which is the only professional training available on this topic—has been created in collaboration with local search expert, Amanda Jordan. 

During the course, Amanda will teach you:

  • the key questions to ask to get to know your clients;
  • how to identify search terms and keywords;
  • which local SEO elements to audit, and why;
  • how to audit each local SEO element; and
  • what to include in an audit report.

Through the ten video lessons, you will learn how to create actionable audits, whether the company you’re working with has two locations or two hundred! 

You’ll also learn how to use a variety of free and paid tools, including some of those available from BrightLocal.
