Local SEO & Google’s Gift To Small Businesses Owners

Unknown To Many Local SEO Is Hot!!

Google loves local SEO. Users find Google’s “Top 3 Map Pack” extremely convenient. A large percentage of Google users query local keywords for goods and services.  Google local search has completely made the Yellow Pages outdated.

The first place to start is to use Google My Business, free service that creates a profile for your business and plays a huge role in local SEO.

The most important thing is to remember when submitting to local directories is to input the same Name, Address and Phone Number (NAP) for each listing you create so Google doesn’t get confused.

With local directory submissions, you will find you will not only rank in Google for your own business (hopefully even higher than before) but you will also see results in the “Top 3 Map Pack.” This is because Google trusts qualitative and authoritative local directory and review sites.

Used Google Chrome’s form auto-fill function to make the job much easier. There is a piece of software called Roboform that you need to pay for, but I found that Google Chrome did the trick and worked well enough for me.

Free local citation directories are getting harder to find, but they are still out there.  Now is the time to get your information into their systems. Watch out for spammy local directory clones as they might be a waste of your time and should be avoided.

Once see your local directory business information begin to get indexed by Google it benefits you.

Change-up your business description on most sites to make it unique. Make sure to fully input all the right categories and keywords the citation sources let you.

Do not upgrade for additional services.

Google “free local directories” and find lists like the one below from HubSpot (old but still useful) and Yext.  Only submit to the free ones.

Hope it helps your business.

Google AdWords (now Google Ads) enables you to bring shoppers to your website and products at the moment they have decided to make a purchasing decision. Google’s PPC advertising platform, AdWords, is highly effective and extremely measurable. AdWords has been the industry leader for over 15 years and has many methods to bring highly targeted traffic directly to your website landing pages. Google makes it easy for you to begin driving traffic to your products and spend money on paid search advertising immediately.

Google AdWords Services

Before you begin your journey into AdWords and online advertising you just may want to hire a professional to guide you in the correct direction. I have over twelve years of experience managing Google AdWords accounts, campaigns, ads, keywords, and budgets. I have managed 100’s of accounts big and small including a gigantic account that has a $100,000 monthly budget. I am Google AdWords Certified which means I have to take and pass two AdWords tests each year. I charge $50/hour to manage, optimize and provide recommendations about AdWords accounts. I feel that is abundantly fair as there are many agencies or consultants who will not only take a large monthly fee but also bill you for a 2-3% of your monthly AdWords spend. Do yourself a favor and shop around for the best AdWords provider for you.
