Local Places Optimization Austin

Showing up on the first page of google has never been harder. Google continues to change their search algorithms and how they factor who show up first on the page.

Google Maps (Google Plus) is one of the harder places to secure a spot. They only allow 7 listings on the first page. Getting in this 7-pack can change your business. Just ask me.

Google Local 7 Pack
How do you get in here?

Google measures the local maps section by something called “citations”. Citations are local listings such as yellowpages.com, yelp, citysearch, yahoo local, etc. They are kind of like back links. The more you have, the more likely you will show up on the first page.

Name Address Phone
Known around the industry as NAP, you must remain consistent across the internet when listing your Name, business Address, and business Phone Number. It is also important to plan ahead. Pick a phone number and address that you will have for a long time. If you go out and build 100 citations, believe me it is a pain in the butt to go revise all of these listings.
