    Wink F'ing Local SEO Tips (NSFW)

    I just discovered this fun site called: F'ing SEO Tips (But on the site it's spelled out.)

    Every time you click "give me another tip", it will give you a tip like:

    Stop using f'ing Flash for your f'ing navigation.
    OR
    Don't use more than one f'ing h1 per fucking page.


    So I thought it would be fun to list our own f'ing Local SEO tips.

    I'm no f'ing primadonna and use the F word quite often, but to keep this place family friendly - please use f'ing instead. I'll start, then you guys jump in whenever the F you want to, OK?



    F'ing Local SEO Tips


    Don't f'ing add city to your name if it's not part of your f'ing name!

    Hide your f'ing address if you are a service area business or have a home office or Google will f'ing delete you!

    Deal with all your f'ing duplicates or watch your ranking drop like a f'ing rock.

    Don't format your phone # on your web site like "555.222.3333" OR "555-222-3333" OR "(555) for-deals" cuz Google can't f'ing read it and it's pretty f'ing important she can read your number!(A f'ing pet peeve of mine.)

    If you value your f'ing listing don't violate the f'ing guidelines!

    Don't f'ing merge yet. It's too f'ing BETA!



    Your turn, add some tips.

    PS Scuse the swearing. It's Saturday - lighten up!

    When you say dont' format your number like those listed, do you mean choose one and be consistent, or none of them are correct. Which is the best to use consistently? the first or second?

    re: F'ing Local SEO Tips (NSFW)

    Hi Rich, none of the above.

    I recommend always using standard phone format on your site: (555) 222-3333.

    Google Maps sometimes can't read phone #s in dash format and usually can't read it in dot format.
    Here is Google corporate's phone # and maps does not even recognize it in dot format.

    Google organic may read phone numbers OK in either format - not sure.

    BUT since local is based on Maps...

    AND since one of the most important parts of NAP is phone # and it's important phone on the site matches phone in the dashboard...

    AND since the Google Local algo is like a kindergartener playing a match game and is easily confused...

    I like to make it easy for her to connect the dots. Because if she gets confused and thinks NAP does not match between the site and the G+ L page, she'll often drop you out of blended.

    re: F'ing Local SEO Tips (NSFW)

    How about:

    Don't f'ing use stock photos for your small biz website. Use your own f'ing photos so we can see who we're really f'ing dealing with.

    AND

    Don't f'ing use the meta-keywords tag so that your competitors can see which f'ing keywords you're targeting

    I find it helps to read these profane tips in a Danny Sullivan voice a la his awesome SMX Advanced rant about link building.

    re: F'ing Local SEO Tips (NSFW)

    Regarding the phone formatting, is it best to have the (555) 222-3333 format everywhere on the site including meta descriptions?

    Well if you choose to put phone in meta description (not sure I would) then I would use that format.

    I don't know if Google is f'ing with us but I saw a phone number formated in Internation format as +1 603 555-1234. Seems that format also works, but I haven't checked it out. I know Google's had troube in the past with Internation #s. Eff that ess.

    For that matter, don't F'ing upload photos with stupid names like 35468.jpg just because that is what your digital camera named your photo. Rename your F'ing photos with useful names!
