All blame is a waste of time

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

Local SEO Guide: Part 2

 

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.

Local SEO Guide: Part1


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'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.
