    Search terms for your Local SEO Business

    A few days ago I showed my website to a friend who works as a sales director for a local hotel. I wanted his input on my pricing packages. He came back with some great ideas. But what got me thinking was the fact that he didn't know what "SEO" or "Search Engine Optimization" meant. Having...
