    What would you like to see in a WP plugin for Local SEO?

    I am a developer who has been doing local SEO for some time.

    I have wanted to do a local SEO WP plugin for some time now and am at the point where I can do it. My question for the group is what functionality would you like to see in such a plugin?

    I am open to any and all ideas.

    Thank you,
    Todd

    Review Schema markup for sure!

    And making a phone number in the top-right corner that is click-to-call on mobile.

    That is actually quite easily added to any web page, WordPress or otherwise, with basic HTML.

    Click to call:

    HTML Code:
    <a href="tel:1-555-555-5555">1-555-555-5555</a>
    Click to send text message:

    HTML Code:
    <a href="sms:1-555-555-5555">Send Text Message</a>
    ... while you're waiting...

    But I agree, a plugin that included that feature would make it easier for a lot of people.

    I think the formatting part is definitely easy. What's not always easy is getting it to show up nicely as a button or something with the existing theme.

    That's true. The styling is often more complicated than the basic code. And I do agree with you that having features like that built in to a theme or plugin greatly adds value.

    Re: What would you like to see in a WP plugin for Local SEO

    Here is the functionality we are looking to add. Which do you think is not needed?

    We are doing for a single location and also for multiple locations.


    • schema.org and hCard markups (rich snippets), including functionality to test schema
    • editable meta description
    • easy to use admin panel
    • responsive design
    • translation ready
    • you can select which information you would like to show or hide
    • business information (name, type, short description, website url, logo, etc.)
    • location details (address, geo coordinates)
    • geo coordinates calculation with 1 click
    • contact details (phone numbers, fax numbers, email)
    • click-to-call links on phone numbers to make it easy for your customers to call you, just 1 click to make a call
    • mail-to link on email to make it easy for your customers to send you an email
    • payment details (accepted payment types, accepted currencies, price range)
    • opening hours (12 or 24 hour-format)
    • special opening hours for holidays (12 or 24 hour-format)
    • social media icons and links (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, and more)
    • Google Maps
    • Widget to encourage people to leave reviews
    • Exploring integration of reviews

    I look forward to receiving your feedback.

    Todd

    Hey Joy,

    We've been using this plugin for what you are requesting. Works pretty well and it has Google Analytics tracking built in.
