3 Concrete Steps to Improve Your Small Business Website

3 concrete steps to improve your small business website

It can seem overwhelming It’s a story we hear all the time – small business owners know that they need to be online to compete, so they hire someone to build a website, and then forget about it.  A month or two later, they suddenly realize they’re not seeing any concrete results from their website and wonder what happened. If this sounds familiar to you, you’re not alone. There’s a common misconception among the general public that once you create a website, you’re all done – that it will just sit on the internet and collect customers for you. Unfortunately for small businesses everywhere, it’s not so simple. There’s a whole industry based around helping businesses get their websites to rank well in search engines and attract customers.

9 Awesome Link Building Strategies for Local Businesses

9 Link Building Strategies for Local Businesses banner

This is a guest post from Anthony Randall of  Rizolt Marketing The Local Advantage One advantage that a local company has over a purely web-based business is that their relevance is extended to their entire community, independent of the niche that they operate in. For link building purposes, simply being a local company means that your relevance becomes more about your location than the services you provide (though that is still hugely important), and that can really open up a lot of opportunities for you. At the end of the day, there isn’t a whole lot of difference between building links for a local business’ website and building links for any other website. Both are extremely hard work, and a lot of strategies can be successful for both. However, there are a few opportunities that local businesses can leverage better than a company with no local presence could. 1. Local […]

Google’s 3-Pack is History

say goodbye to the 3-pack banner

Say goodbye to the 3-pack Well, Google has done it again. At SMX Advanced this week, Google announced that they’re making a big change to their local search 3-pack – the box of local search results that comes up when you search for a local business.     In the near future, the top result in the local 3-pack will now be a paid ad, matching the trend in other changes Google has made to the search results. More and more, Google is prioritizing delivering paid results over organic results. In many cases, such as any local search conducted on mobile, there are currently no organic results above the fold.   With Google’s increased focus on delivering advertising instead of organic search, the local 3-pack was a place where local businesses could really shine. However, the 3-pack will soon be a 2-pack, with the first result being taken up by […]
