    Hot New Badges for Local Search Pros & Top Contributors

    Travis Van Slooten, one of our valued Top Contributors just made an awesome donation to the team!

    Travis asked me if I had considered making badges Local Search Top Contributors could post on their site, similar to the Google Top Contributor badge I have in my sidebar. I told him a few companies that have gone through my Advanced Google+ Local training had been asking if I had any badges for them too.

    I explained I'd love to and it's been on mental to-do list but am so limited on time and not great at graphics. I told him I'd be fine with it if he just wanted to create his own.

    Travis in complete selflessness and appreciation for the community said "as long as I'm making them for myself, please go ahead and share with the rest of the group."


    NEW LOCAL SEARCH PRO AND TOP CONTRIBUTOR BADGES

    Above is just a combined screenshot. As soon as I get time I'll upload the Top Contributor badge to the private TC forum.

    I'll also upload the Local Search Pro badge to the Private pro forum, so anyone that's taken my training can go ahead and use it on your web site. (Some of you miss the posts in the private forum because they don't go out via RSS, so I wanted to give you a heads up out here in the public forum.) But in the private forum, I'll explain some things there about how to use your Pro Badge/banner and why we carefully worded it the way we did. It will make lots of sense after I explain.

    In either case, then you should link the Badge/banner to your profile page here and that way potential customers will more directly understand the significance AND can see all your posts here to see how knowledgeable you are!

    I offered to pay Travis for doing this for everyone and he declined payment saying "No charge. You've helped me enough over the past months it's the least I can do." And those of you that qualify to use the badges above are the lucky recipients of Travis's generosity.

    So please show Travis some appreciation in this thread. Name:  icon14.png
