The city of Mississauga is one of the most diverse and vibrant cities in Canada with just under 1 million in population. Located just west of Toronto, expanding from lake Ontario in the south up to highway 407 in the north and bordering Oakville and Milton in the west, Mississauga is an important economic hub in Ontario. Due to its close proximity to Toronto, Mississauga has attracted many large and small businesses from Fortune 500 companies to small local businesses, entrepreneurial businesses, artists, freelancers, and the city growing at a rapid pace.
Local businesses located throughout the 22 neighbourhoods of Mississauga rely on sales from local customers and other people who are for business or visiting the city. It is no surprise that over 96% of people who search for a local business or service in Canada use their mobile phones and a huge part of them rely on Google to find what they’re looking for. The truth is that in order to be found by local customers who are searching in close proximity to your business, you must put effort into optimizing your brand for local SEO. I am not talking about paid advertising here, but rather organic SEO, an investment that is guaranteed to yield steady business growth, more leads, and brand awareness. Just like we all didn’t graduate in one day or one month, organic SEO does take a bit of time to generate results. You must have faith trust in the process.
