These numbers don’t even include the millions of iPads and Apple’s other mobile devices out there. As iOS 8 is the latest software these devices run on, it is important to make sure you follow local SEO tips to adapt your website for iOS 8. This will ensure that you get more website traffic (and customers) from iPhone and iPad users who spend more than Android users…

1. Optimize your website for mobile devices:

The requisite to driving mobile traffic through any search engines is to have a mobile friendly site. If your site isn’t optimized for mobile devices and you work hard to drive traffic through search engines, then all your effort will be worthless as people will just find your website hard to navigate through and in the process abandon it. Also, search engines like Google take factors like user satisfaction while ranking sites on search engines, so mobile optimization could play a vital role too.

Do your research and find out what local keywords iPhone and iPad users are typing on their mobile devices while searching for websites in your niche? Then skilfully weave these keywords in the content on your website. Include zip code, city, prominent landmarks and other local keywords.

3. Improve website loading speed:

    Another useful thing to add to your website is schema.org markup. It’s a standard created by Yahoo, Microsoft, and Google to ensure your content on your website can be identified. Specifically address and phone number.

    Doing so will ensure people can click on an address to get directions or a phone number to call. Using schema helps Safari and other browsers open the appropriate app for the action.
