    22 Local SEO Tips and Tricks for Small Business

    Being at the top of the local search results is not easy by any means. However, with the right direction and advice, you’ll see your rankings increase over the next few months.

    That’s exactly what you have in front you: Local SEO tips and tricks to get your website to show up higher in those search results so you can drive more customers to your website and accumulate the most important thing, more money.

    There are many factors that determine the ranking in the search results, and they’re always changing. One week you might be number one, and the next week you might not even be on the first page. Welcome to the Internet. The key is to be as natural as possible when creating your website, but let the search engines know “Hey, this is what I do and where I’m located” without screaming and yelling at them (keyword stuffing). Also keep in mind, it takes time for website to rank. Follow Google’s Webmaster guidelines along with these tips, and you will have a higher ranking website.
    Admittedly, I only had time for a quick skim and did not read critically or in detail.

    Did you find anything obviously missing or is there anything you would be sure to add?

    Hey, nice find Linda.

    I did find one item that could cause some confusion.

    The first tip links to the Google Places for Business front door but the screenshot and subsequent tip are talking about what you would do if you went in the G+ door.
