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...
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.
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...
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...
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...
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...
yeah, but others rank for just "megaformer."
This is my thought.
corevolution=fitness equipment CorEvolution ? The Best in Home Exercise Equipment ? Easy to Use
corevolution ≠ local business
I'm home in Saratoga now and this is what I see:
No presence in local, class page #1 in SERPs, homepage nowhere
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...
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.
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.
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...
Thanks Cody. I don't think the plugin will help me because of the fact that there is a never-ending stream of new home page url variations, with 13,000 to start with. I don't want to enter all those by hand.
Also I can't even 301 them because of that. Otherwise, I'd have a list of 301's a mile...
I'll report back now and what we have going on with our own problem. And please tell me what you think of my solution.
This client had a Joomla site using the K2 extension through which hackers got in and placed pages with backlinks to their money pages. They hacked thousands of...
I can probably help you Joshua. If not me, then I can recommend someone. I'm out of the office on Tuesday for a family emergency, but back on Wednesday. My office number is 408-770-9821 or should me an email at email@example.com we can schedule a time to talk if you like.
Here's one I did for a property manager. This client is in San Jose but has no interest of ranking in that city because the demographic isn't right for him. He wanted to rank in Palo Alto, so I did this: Palo Alto Property Management
Because he deals in real estate investing and property...
