It’s March of 2015 and that means it’s time to do some spring cleaning. Every year it seems that the online landscape is changing a little more, and the moving industry is no exception.

I realized something REALLYY weird with this site, mgmcdallas.com a couple weeks ago.

As you can see, the business has a Dallas, TX address and really only services the Dallas/Fort Worth metro.

They recently started getting some of referral traffic from yelp.com/biz_redir. Weirdly, they've also been getting more salespeople (especially the SEO industry) filling out their contact form and call them. He tells me there are almost 20 a day calling him and trying to tell them to hire them for SEO.. he keeps telling them no b/c he has someone local that helps him.

Take January for example, they had 164 sessions and 119 of those were from this yelp referral. They DON'T advertise with Yelp, or get traffic from Yelp anywhere in Texas. You can see from below screenshot that they are all coming from California.

I've had our SEO and developer look into and we can't figure out what's happening. Any thoughts? If someone can help with this, I'd be more than happy to compensate.

My wife and I just bought our first home in Dallas and were recommended to Kristi at Outdoor Home Living from some neighbors. Our back yard was a mess and now it has tons of usable space! They came in and removed some old dead trees, built a retaining wall, and laid some new St. Augustine sod. The yard looks great now! We can finally have friends over to entertain in the back yard.

I really enjoy this new place. I always get the Greenville Cobb salad. Their ingredients are always fresh and they chop the salad up right in front of you. If you're looking to get a salad to go, they pack it nice and tight in a easy to eat out of container.
