Location Often Impacts Results

PowerPoint Presentation:

Specific Location (which Google often auto-detects) Location-Biased Results

PowerPoint Presentation:

Local SEO Defined This broad definition doesn’t restrict Local SEO to Google + Bing or to only maps-style queries. The practice of improving the quantity and quality of traffic from search queries with a geographic intent.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The Local SEO Process

PowerPoint Presentation:

Conduct Basic Keyword Research Via Google’s Adwords Keyword Research Tool Watch exact vs. broad carefully

PowerPoint Presentation:

Investigate the Search Results This can help inform which results to pursue with which tactics. Note where & how maps results vs. standard results appear

PowerPoint Presentation:

Evaluate Keyword Competition This result set is clearly very non-competitive. There’s few reviews or even serious data for most of the listings.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Evaluate Keyword Competition This set is the opposite. Everyone listed has hundreds of reviews and tons of information; very competitive to rank here.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Make Smart Keyword Targeting Choices Those terms & phrases that bring you high quality customers but aren’t tremendously competitive will be the best place to start. Over time, you can and should pursue more challenging terms. High Volume (many searches/month) Low Competition (weak sites/pages in the top 10) High Value (large % of visitors convert) Ideal Keywords!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Connection of Listings, Social Profiles & Website Twitter, Facebook, Google+, FourSquare , CitySearch, Google Local, Yelp, UrbanSpoon and LinkedIn should all be claimed (at least). Smart move from Amber – linking to their social profiles and including their address info on those pages, too!
