I have had several people ask me what it takes get my business listed online, especially for local businesses. Each and every time I try and tell them that they need to do local SEO marketing. I always get blank stares. I saw this post from Todd Mintz over at Search Engine Journal (http://www.searchenginejournal.com/get-listed-so-you-can-get-found/28398/)
HE gives a list of three things and I would recommend that you follow these items when starting with your local SEO.
The three super duper local listing strategies:
- Claim your Google Places Page
- Optimize the heck out of it (without spamming)
- Get people to leave reviews (on the Google places page and also on other sites such as Yelp).
There it is 3 simple items….. In my next 3 blog posts, I will give suggestions and instructions on how to do each of them.
