I’m a 15 year old who created the ncdrivingschool.co.uk for my dad’s business all the way from logo design to seo to wraps for the business car.
Our google my business and google analytics are pretty good although not the best, but it is generating us 2 – 5 leads each week.
The problem which I have is when someone types in NC Driving School into google the first result that comes up with is a company called NC Driving School but it’s based in North Carolina, the NC Driving School which I have is based in the UK and stands for my dad’s initials.
I wanted to know if there is a way for our website to be on top of that and if so what is the best way to do it as I don’t want to do something that will harm our seo.
Doesn’t look you have a google ‘my business’ page setup, so that should be your first step. Will get you google maps search placements too. Create Facebook pages, Trustpilot pages etc too, IME it helps fill up the results page for brand searches with things relevant to your brand.
Getting your version higher than the US version I wouldn’t see as the primary goal. If they’re searching for you by name they already know who you are. You want to try and get ranked for e.g. driving lessons Luton. So go read a book and focus on local SEO.
Also if you can do that then searches for your name by UK customers will probably end up replacing the US version anyway as google sees you are increasingly relevant to driving schools.
