"So You Want To Find Someone Offering UK SEO Services?"
That's a good idea. The UK is not the USA or India. Local knowledge is useful. It's especially important if you want to lure in UK customers. Foreigners won't understand the British senses of humour, their irony, their diffidence, their sense of understatement and their culture.
Someone who's lived here for 20 years has a much better idea of the 'matrix' British people live in. What they think and more importantly, what they buy. Someone who knows that 'chips' means sizable pieces of deep-fried potato and that 'pants' can have unfortunate connotations!
One of the most basic search engine optimisation tricks is to let search engines know that your site is based in the UK. This means you will get vistors who live in Liverpool, Manchester and London and not Los Angeles, Madrid and Lahore.
There's also the practicality of meeting up with your consultant. You can tell a lot about a man just from how he looks and sounds. As the saying goes "No one on the internet knows you're a dog" but when you meet a man in person it's harder for him to hide what he's really like. There's also the simple human pleasure of meeting the man you're doing business with. Who knows, you might make a friend and begin a great commercial adventure!
It's just handier having a tradesman live locally. Certainly, you can outsource abroad. I've done it myself very successfully but only with services I truly understand. For other things, go local!
