What is Local SEO? The short version, Local SEO is a collection of strategies aimed at raising the organic search visibility for services offered or in-store experiences for local businesses and retailers. The goal is to drive footfall to a bricks-and-mortar store or to drive traffic to a lead-gen service related website (or both).
The two main channels for local SEO are Google my Business (sometimes referred to as Google Maps) and local intent search queries in the organic search listings. For example: "cheap hairdressers near me". Both of these offerings are from Google. That would make sense as Google holds 90%+ Search Engine market share in the UK.
