    Examples of Amazing Local Landing Pages - List them Here!

    So sorry for not replying before now. I just saw this and I'm 3 years late. Since others still read these old posts, I'll answer anyway. Apparently not linking to the Palo Alto page in the main menu has no effect on SEO, since they are #1. Same for Menlo Park since they are #2. However, I have...

    GMB Testing "View previous posts on Google" Link in Bottom of Knowledge Panel

    Re: GMB Testiing "View previous posts on Google" Link in Bottom of Knowledge Panel I've been seeing that for my clients. Question. How does Google decide when it's a previous and not current post? I just put one up, and Google has it as previous.

    In an Industry Void of Promises, How Do You Guarantee Value?

    Like @Mborgelt, I tell them "they will at the very least have a great online marketing cornerstone that they can build on for the future." What's working for me now is to break my SEO projects in two with the first being the somewhat encapsulated Local SEO and the second being organic SEO. By...

    In Local Pack for most keywords but NOT main keyword , any advice please

    Jeffin, since you say it's the MAIN keyword you're not ranking for, usually that is because there is more competition for that keyword than the others and your website and business don't measure up to the others just yet. Getting good rank is not just a matter of sprinkling the keyword on the...

    AdWords Express - Need Your Experiences (good and bad)

    I've been meaning to write about this as well, but before I can I have to compile real data. So I don't have that for you yet, but I'll pop in anyway. The BIGGEST problem I see with Express is business owners think they can do it themselves! Now you may laugh at that because that is why it was...

    Hacked URLs showing up as 404s in Google Search Console

    Sucuri wouldn't find anything wrong. You've already cleaned it up! What you are left with is the same thing we were - automated backlink generation to pages that don't exist. If you can, do what we did. We had thousands of 404s. Now there is only one. You can see what I did above. Cody...

    Google has something against megaformers and I don't know why!

    yeah, but others rank for just "megaformer." This is my thought. To Google: corevolution=fitness equipment CorEvolution ? The Best in Home Exercise Equipment ? Easy to Use therefore corevolution ≠ local business and because megaformer=fitness equipment Google connects...

    I'm home in Saratoga now and this is what I see: For https://www.google.com/search?query=megaformer%20classes&num=10&near=saratoga%2C%20ca&gws_rd=ssl&pws=0&num=100 No presence in local, class page #1 in SERPs, homepage nowhere For...

    Google has something against megaformers and I don't know why!

    I'll give that a try, Joy. I gave them instructions today to create a page specifically about the megaformer, but I'll have her hold off on this and do what you suggest. FTI, I'm in the area, actually in San Jose right now, but I'll check in Saratoga when I get home. I see exactly the same...

    Google has something against megaformers and I don't know why!

    That's an interesting catch James. But they show #1 for "megaformer classes Saratoga," so I don't think that's it. I'm pushing them to clean up their NAP because until we get everything clean, it may be hard to troubleshoot.

    Google has something against megaformers and I don't know why!

    maybe because that trademark appears to be associated with gym equipment, which the megaformer is. That doesn't mean Google should be tripping over that, but anything is possible in code. All it takes is a forgotten if statement.

    Google has something against megaformers and I don't know why!

    I posted this in the Google Local Search Group's hot seat but haven't found solution yet. So I thought I'd try here to see if any of you pros have any ideas. Here's what I posted there with an update: This client is a megaformer fitness studio in Saratoga, CA. Their listing disappeared from...
