    Cool Hi from Austin, Texas

    Hey guys & gals,

    My name is Tom and I am from Austin, Texas. Been here since 2008 and am not sure if that makes me a Texan or not.

    I lived in VA for 43 years and then moved to Austin. I studied IRM in school and have been in the computer industry for longer than I can remember. I started designing websites when I moved to Austin and got hooked on SEO.

    Last February I found myself without a full time job. Looking around I just couldn't find the right fit, so I decided to open up my own business called HangTenSEO.com. Once I set my goal on starting my business, I also thought what the heck and wrote a book called Local SEO - A roadmap to successful local ranking. You can find it on Amazon. The book is around 87 pages and contains a ton of information pertaining to local ranking. Would love to get some more reviews. hint hint

    Since opening my company I have managed to get 2 clients doing website work and will be starting on some local SEO campaign stuff. I have an upcoming meeting with a potential new client next week.

    To give you an idea of how I landed the meeting, I simply ran a Moz Local review of the company. I found some serious flaws in their local SEO and approached them with the information.

    The key walk aways were that they had a micro business in their establishment and were using the same physical address on their citations, which ends up creating duplicates. Another walk away was they had many incomplete citations.

    In speaking with them they admitted that they had fallen behind in their local SEO and hadn't visited it in quite some time.

    Hey Tom. Welcome to the forum.

    My wife and I are both from VA. Grew up in Newport News and went to school at Radford University, where I played baseball. What part of VA did you live?
