"All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another,
regardless of how much you blame
it will not change you"

2. Research Your Local Market
Once you have your Target Local Keyword, you can begin doing some research. I recommend opening up all three major search engines: Google, Bing, and Yahoo. Then sign out of any associated accounts that may alter your results (Gmail, Ymail, Hotmail, etc.). Search your Target Local Keyword in all of the engines and begin examining the results. Who ranks #1, #2, and #3? I recommend setting up an excel spreadsheet for each engine and recording the top 10 for your TLK. Record all of the local and top organic results up to 10 total spots. Record the business name, linked URL, total number of reviews, reviews of each star level, and business address information.
is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention,
sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice
of many alternatives - choice, not chance, determines your destiny.”

THE HABIT OF DOING MORE THAN PAID FOR
Work which one does merely for the sake of earning a living is seldom liked. More often it is disliked, or even hated. When engaged in work, which he loves, a man may labor for an unbelievably long period of hours without becoming fatigued.
- Trust that your child is trying to be the best he can be and that he will do this more readily without your criticism. Know that he usually sees his own faults without you continually pointing them out.

1. Find Target Keywords
Keywords are important, very important. Starting with keywords is a solid base to build any SEO campaign. The goal is to find the most relevant words for your business that also have the highest local monthly search volume. There are plenty of other great articles on the net about keyword selection so I won’t go too deeply into the process. Local keyword selection consists of adding Geographic Specific Keywords (GSK) to your Target Keyword (TK).
GSK + TK = TLK (Target Local Keyword)
You may also want to find variations using state, zip code, and neighborhoods in addition to alternating the Target Keywords and GSK in location.
- I'm not afraid of facts, I welcome facts but a congeries of facts is not equivalent to an idea. This is the essential fallacy of the so-called "scientific" mind. People who mistake facts for ideas are incomplete thinkers; they are gossips.
