Stay Consistent With Your NAP (Name, Address, Phone)

Consistency is critical here. Your NAP (Name, Address, Phone Number) information should on every single page of your site – usually the footer. If it isn’t, it may be worthwhile to contact your web developer and ask for them to put it into your footer.

While we are on the topic, you will also want to use Schema.org markups with your NAP details, which help search engines better understand where your business is located and decommunisation the information accurately.
