    Reviews for GMB NATIONAL Rankings

    Correct and thank you Colan. I suppose my question is more directed at national rankings, excluding local rankings.

    Reviews for GMB NATIONAL Rankings

    Would the content in my reviews (and responses) help rank my GMB on a national level? I found myself putting in keywords like "dental SEO specialist" in my responses to Google reviews, without any thought of ranking for such keywords. As an afterthought, I'm wondering if such reviews might help...

    What Are the Best Examples You've Seen of Terrible Owner Responses to Reviews?

    I had a nightmare client for a couple months. When I fired him (for being self-sabotaging and uncooperative), I read his Yelp responses. He always blamed the patient for being illogical and childish. I recommend never working with a prospective client who starts off their response with "Not to...

    Anyone used Web 2.0 Ranker Citation Submission Service?

    I have to check the numbers, soon. I think that's the total cost, all citations included. I remember it being cheaper than Moz Local and White Spark when I signed up.

    Anyone used Web 2.0 Ranker Citation Submission Service?

    Yes, I have this option enabled for all my clients. I'm told it's a new option for agencies. I think it's around $30/mo extra. Yext is a significant investment in terms of citations. But it seems to be doing fairly well, so far. I just hired a new employee who will be handling Yext. So I might...

    Anyone used Web 2.0 Ranker Citation Submission Service?

    Years ago, I hired this company for some editorial link building. I was extremely unimpressed. I'll spare you the details, but let's just say I'd look in another direction before considering this company. These aggregators look like a great price compared to the bigger names (such as Yext...

    Anyone used Web 2.0 Ranker Citation Submission Service?

    Unless I'm misunderstanding this service, it's designed to get citations indexed. If it's a citation builder like bright local, yext, whitespark, etc...different story. I like to see quick results from my work, and so the pitch I often get for building links to citations is appealing. In...

    How Often Should You Be Meeting With a New Client?

    Just out of curiosity, has anyone charged per hour for client meetings? I bundle a 10 minute call (and unlimited emails/text, etc) with my clients. As long as people are pleasant and reasonable, I don't like to limit them. But, I recently had a micromanaging client leave me because they said...

    Anyone used Web 2.0 Ranker Citation Submission Service?

    I keep seeing things like this, but it feels a little spammy. I definitely see the value of quickly indexing your citations, though. Anyone have experience or even just a "take" on this kind of tactic?

    Keywords In Reviews?

    Hi Colan, thanks for your input. Although a credible document (especially when it's cited by Linda), it's not a detailed case study. I realize it's tough to isolate just one single SEO variable, but that's what I'm aiming for.

    Keywords In Reviews?

    I feel like there may be something to this. Does anyone have a definitive case study showcasing certain keywords ranking in the 3 pak because of keywords naturally occurring in the Google reviews?

    Mike Blumenthal on Dental Hacks - MASSIVE CONFUSION

    Thanks Mike! That makes perfect sense and it's exactly how I interpreted your comments on dental hacks.

    Mike Blumenthal on Dental Hacks - MASSIVE CONFUSION

    Hi Mike, At around 30:20 mark, you say that SEO is about where dentistry was in the 1800's. I can't find the exact point, but it's late in the interview, where you say that it's not just about building backlinks and earning reviews. It's not what you said that is controversial. It's the...

    Mike Blumenthal on Dental Hacks - MASSIVE CONFUSION

    I had a couple clients contact me, saying that Mike Blumenthall suggested that link building is dead in this podcast: with Mike Blumenthal (DHP172) I listened to the podcast and I hear nothing of the sort. I heard Mike saying what we all know to be true...that you can't just "build links" or...

    Re: How to quantify SEO and... The new ideas are a double edged sword. On the one hand, being ahead of the curve provides a competitive advantage. On the other, the kaleidoscopic deliverables can leave some skeptical clients nauseous. This is why it boils down to trust. I try to educate my...

    Re: How to quantify SEO and... The $10k figure is more a generality, I tend to charge less than $5k/mo as well. I just think that most business owners will let $500 go without any second consideration for 10 months. But, ask for $5k upfront and they all of a sudden have the world's most...

    How to quantify SEO to clients and...

    Re: How to quantify SEO and... Good points. I find that the primary challenge in SEO is when I have to explain that the gameplan has changed. For instance, say I'm building links directly to my client's website by writing articles for industry leading websites. Then, John Mueller comes out...

    ...make clients feel like they understand the value of what they're getting? I find that SEO companies fall into 3 major categories: 1. They do nothing (or close to it). These companies are generally large-scale remnants of the yellow pages era, or build outs of some non-SEO corporation...

    Best On-Page Auditor?

    Thank you for your experiences. Even though these tools can't replace the problem-solving ability of a consultant, I think cold leads may warm up to the fact that they're in over their heads for DIY SEO. Although your experience may say otherwise, I've heard Neil Patel rave about his on page...
