Sales Copy is Sales Repellent ( if you don't rank in Google yet)

#lawyermarketing look at 100 law firm websites… if you were Googlebot what would you see?

a sea of sameness … with all of them harping the same sales copy, there’s little reason for Googlebot to consider moving you up or demoting who’s currently #1 ranked

WordPress Posts vs Pages Question

I'm redoing a wordpress site where the original web dev used pages rather than posts.
I'm wanting to know what's recommended to replace the pages with posts.
I could:

301 redirect
rel=canonical

Or is there a preferred method of doing this?
I'm operating on the assumption that Google already indexed the pages and I'm fearful of duplicate content penalty

thanks in advance

one of my new clients had a web dev create a yoothemes wp. To my horror when I look at the first post, yoothemes says "hidden article" WTF???
now I'm frightened that by "hidden" Googlebot can't easily spider the text content and that's gotta be a SEO killer.
and I'm now thinking I can't be the first guy to see this and have to change my shorts! Has anyone here found this to be a problem?
The client in question does not rank well and I'm currently of the opinion that this "hidden article" is why.

Smartphone Google Ranking means Google Maps Listings


There’s tons of data to indicate that millennials simply do not trust a listing on the paid or sponsored ad spots.

The implication being they can’t tell if you’re any good or not… but they know FOR SURE that you have deep enough pockets to buy your way to the top.

Separate website domains for separate practice areas I know you don’t wanna hear this… Sell ONE THING and SELL IT WELL There is a finite amount of “google juice” available to one website domain. Google Juice: A colloquial name for the value afforded to incoming web links by PageRank, the Google search algorithm If you … Continue reading "Separate Websites For Each Practice Area"

In the example offered in that hubspot article all three example websites were selling the same identical product: Staffing
my rebuttal is... if someone is searching for a DUI lawyer, they're not going to be impressed by an Estate lawyer or a Bankruptcy lawyer or an attorney who's primary focus is Family law. All they want is to not loose their drivers license if possible.

Schema markup wordpress plugin assistance request

I've not found a plugin to provide schema markup that performs satisfactory and am seeking recommendations. To date I've attempted to use the Raven Schema markup plugin but apparently either I've not implemented it correctly OR I don't fully understand what it's supposed to do:
for instance, I thought the schema markup was supposed to be buried in the code, much like the meta data between the <head> and </head> tags.
however this is the result I get on this site I'm working on:

http://allcleanincmd.com/testimonials/

I'm going to re-read what the Raven tools site says ( here: https://raventools.com/site-auditor/seo-guide/schema-structured-data/ ) but I'm open to suggestions

thanks in advance
The easiest way to get started creating HTML with schema.org microdata

Where can one get accurate numbers on how many lawyers are employees of #biglaw firms as opposed to how many lawyers are self employed by hanging out their own shingle?

Can i ask my G+ friends to please check this Google result from your phone and / or computer? Our client is Stellar Energy Solutions in Corpus Christi Tx -
Google:
"electricity broker corpus christi tx"

I'm trying to see if the Google local business listings are replaced by a Google knowledge card and curious if the card displays to folks searching that aren't located in Corpus Christi

I concur, traffic to our Google My Business listing = 2.1 K, traffic to our website during same thirty day period = 975 ( roughly 10% of that was overseas, hence not prospective clients). What you suggest is spot on as far as local seo #lawyermarketing

Does anyone here have any horror stories or glowing reviews of the use of Network Solutions as a domain registrar?
A trusted long time client has asked me to take over his father's website and "Dad" hired a local web dev who uses Network Solutions as a domain registrar
... the only thing I have first hand functional knowledge of NS is that they suck if you're running an eCommerce Shopping Cart site ( which this particular one is not ) thanks

Introduction
Smartphone SEO means Google Places Ranking
Local SEO Apex Predator David Bruce Jr of Frederick Web Promotions

Google this phrase: Regional Search Engine Marketing

That's what I do for small businesses, real estate agents, lawyers, plastic surgeons.
 
Local SEO  (translation) : people pay me to make their company
  1. #1 on mobile smartphone search,
  2. #1 on Google local search results
  3. #1 on Google Places Listings
  4. Get traffic to their company Facebook Page
  5. Google+ Optimization
  6. LinkedIn Optimization

Search Engine Marketing and Search Engine Optimization for local Frederick County & Montgomery County Maryland. Online Publicity, Youtube optimization, Google Business Accounts set up and optimized.

From Corporate Accounts to Small Businesses.

Did your Google Places Listing Disappear?

More than likely you violated the TOS, maybe inadvertently... or you thought you'd get away with it(nobody reads the fine print... or you hired someone who didn't know what they were doing)

It is NOT in Google's best interests to keep you banned... Google wants to encourage "good behavior"

I've been repairing this for lawyers, plastic surgeons, chain stores and Mom n Pop small business people for 2 years.
