Do you want to learn how to rank your business higher in Google Search?
Do you own a small business?
Do you just want to do the work on your own?
This is the perfect course for you.
I've created a step-by-step course that walks you through everything you need to know about boosting your visibility in the Google local map pack.
In August of 2015 Google changed the "local 7 pack" into the "local 3 pack".
It's now more important than ever to be working on Local Search Optimization for your business.
Only 3 businesses are now shown within the local business pack when typical "service + city" terms are used in Google search.
In this course I walk you through the basics of:
- Setting up your website for local search
- Setting up your Google+ business page
- Adding your business to important website directories such as Yelp
- Setting up basic social media profiles such as Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn for business.
- I walk you through several tools that can be used for tracking your rankings and auditing your business for search.
- I show you the importance of content and how to optimize it for your business
- I provide ways to generate more reviews for your business on Google, Yelp and others.
- I show you some other websites you can use to generate new clients for your business.
