    Analyzing a generic keyword with no geo modifier for multiple locations

    There used to be a great function with Google to view search results from a particular geographical location ( New York, Gainesville etc...), although this seems to have been discontinued a while back. I'm currently targeting surrounding towns/ cities for my clients, so the data would be super...

    Website Themes vs Bespoke Designs

    Hi all, Due to some requests as of late I have started to look into developing websites for small business owners. I normally steer clear of this as I am busy enough just with local seo, but having done some research it doesn't seem to bad of an idea to offer an all inclusive package. The...

    Google Plus Reviews from the same I.P

    Hi all hope your well! I have been re visiting the strategy we use to gain reviews (primarily on Google Plus Local) for our clients. I have used Philip Rozek’s Free One page Handout, which is really handy. Cheers for that Philip. Unfortunately we don’t have the budget to do a la Google Styley...

    Location in page title

    Hi all, I have been re writing some title tags for one of our clients, as well as carrying out some competitor research. Whilst I am fine with writing page titles and meta descriptions. I do however wonder if I am being spammy in Google's eyes as I have the location in most titles. Whilst the...

    Google Plus Local listing with the owners thumbnail picture attached :/

    Good afternoon everyone! I thought I would share this screen shot, as I have never seen the authors/owners picture next to a Plus Local listing. I am familiar with using a schema author mark-up for blogs but not for a Plus Local listing. Any input would be appreciated. Have a great...

    Does any one use photo sharing sites for citations?

    I have been reviewing the way I create citations for 2013 and wondered if I was wasting my time using photo sharing sites. (I place the citation in the description of the photo). Some are indexed, so I was thinking it must be having some effect. Also has anyone had any positive experiences...

    Using multiple gmail account to log in Google Plus Local

    Hi all, Sorry if this is a bit of a stupid question. I have a client with an existing live listing, unfortunately they are not willing to give me their gmail account log ins. Can I link the listing to another independent gmail account so I can make the necessary edits in the dashboard...

    Needs action not yet published???

    I am having trouble uploading the image to explain this scenario in greater detail, so bear with my explanation. This is a weird one... I created a Plus local account for a client around 3 months ago. I have struggled to see any movement past page 3, so I decided to make some changes via the...

    Using a clients contact page as a designated inner page?

    Good morning, I'm left scratching my head a little with this one. In a nutshell I usually create an inner page for my client e.g domain.co.uk/london to avoid blending the results and loosing the organic listing. A client has requested I use their contact page as the designated inner page...

    Video seo for local search

    Hi all, Before all the latest updates it seemed relatively easy to get a video thumbnail ranking on page 1 for your kw + city, alongside your inner page and home page. Recently this seems really hard to achieve. I would be interested in hearing anyone else's experiences...... I generally used...

    Merging Google Plus and Google Plus local

    Hi everyone, Just a quick one. Most of my clients don't have a Google Plus page, so I simply create them a Plus local page (places) and try and get it ranking. Will I gain anything apart from more headaches but setting up a Google plus page and migrating the 2 together. I am kinda happy just...

    Thoughts on PR releases for citations

    Hi everyone. I must have been quite lucky but to date I have always managed to rank places listings by optimising the website, using videos, directories and reviews. It seems to be getting a bit tougher now. I have a client I cant shift no matter what I do (please note they have no reviews even...

    New listing was 3rd on page one but has vanished

    Hi everyone, Great website Linda, as there seems no way of getting help via Google Plus local/Places help forums. I cant give my clients listing details right now, as my boss is not too keen on the idea, although I realise I may have to. So I added a new listing about 2 weeks ago dropped in...
