Google’s Front Page | What Does The Local Ranking Syndrome Say About Google

Google’s Front Page, Local Rankings & Beyond

Below are your rankings so far after just a few hours work.  You can see your rankings for the few keywords worked on have improved vastly in rank.  You rank for other keywords, but these seem to be the most important.

Think about the best 5 keywords in the world for you…more than two keywords and I will research how difficult it will be to get rank for them nationally and locally.

I can get you to rank high on local keywords, even on page one for most of the keywords you envision if combined with local search.

Eventually Google’s page one for consumers will have just ads, local results, a couple vendors (Amazon & Home Depot), maybe a video and without a doubt rating and directory sites — that’s why its important to get into the review and directory sites now because that’s the future source of your main revenue stream and perhaps the future source of Google’ revenue stream.

Google may even begin charging (if it has not begun doing so already) for companys with a certain customer reviewer rating percentage to appear in the local “snack-pack.”

The local  “snack-pack” used to show 7 entries, Google recently lowered the number of local entries shown to 3 entries. I don’t know why, only Google know for sure and since they have all the data, they know exactly why.

I believe it was due to Google users clicking so much on the snack-pack, it was taking away clicks and possibly revenue from everything else on the front page like locally focused Google AdWords. Will be interesting to see if Google experiments with snack-packs on every page.

The keywords you envision at the very minimum need to be on your home page, even just the menu system. Very minimally switch up some verbiage on synonyms. I can put them in the off-site seo, but they need to be on-site as well to get the full effect. Hopefully, over time, you would also have additional pages where we can insert the keyword into the nitty gritty html tags that Google likes.

Does not have to be complex, can be something never posted online that can be reworked or even something written with a co-writer. It must be something of value to attract readers, linkers, sharers and Google.

Here are the good keyword results so far, eventually, with Google’s rating’s system, the more good ratings you get, the higher you will show there as well. It is a slow process but done right over time you will see higher rankings and a higher return on investment.
