Adding a Location in Local SEO Addon

The Local SEO addon for All in One SEO Pro supports multiple business locations so that they appear in local search results.

After you enable Multiple Locations, All in One SEO will create a new post type called Locations which you’ll see in the WordPress menu. This is where you can add each location for your business.

Locations menu item in the main WordPress menu

To add a location, click on Add New under Locations in the main WordPress menu.

You’ll see the standard WordPress editor where you can enter your title. This can be your location name or whatever else you want to use for naming each business location. You’ll also see the content area where you can enter your content.

In the sidebar, you’ll see Location Categories and Featured Image. You can optionally use these to categorize your location(s) and add a location image.

Below the content area you’ll see the AIOSEO Settings section where you can set the SEO for your location. We’re going to skip over this and look at the AIOSEO Local Business section because this is where you add your location details.

At the top of the section you’ll see tabs for Business Info and Opening Hours.

Once you’ve completed the Business Info tab, you can click on the Opening Hours tab to set the opening hours for this location.

Opening Hours

The first setting is the Use Defaults toggle. If you set this to Yes, then All in One SEO will use the settings from the Opening Hours tab in the Local SEO settings of All in One SEO detailed here.

The Show Opening Hours toggle will enable or disable opening hours for this location. Set this to Yes if you want to set and display opening hours for this location.
