    Want to Learn More about Google Maps/Google My Business? Read This!

    Bryan Seely reached out to me and let me know he just re-released his book on Google Maps spam. I read this book in 2 days because I couldn't put it down and it seriously opened my eyes to the tactics that spammers are using to game Google's system and create fake listings that rank very well, very fast on Google Maps.

    Anyone who is serious about learning Local SEO needs to read this book. It really opened my eyes and has helped me fight & identify spam so much better.

    You can get his book on Amazon for only $14.99 here. There aren't many books published about our industry and this one is truly amazing because Bryan talks about how he created 3,000 fake listings for a business who wanted to sell leads to legit businesses. He explains all the tactics that he used and how they worked.

    Thanks Joy! I agree, this is a must read for every local SEO. I read it when it circulated digitally, and it is very much worth the price to order now that it's available in print.

    No, I'm so backed up due to these hand issues. I'm still trying to catch up with mission critical stuff. But based on things you've said, I know I need to! (And would be enlightened.)

    I have it in my hot little hand today - the opening quote about the Locksmith was mind blowing. Really looking forward to this!
