Interesting article for anyone that still does not see the direction Google search is headed. Small business owners should think mobile first and desktop second!!

Local businesses attempting to rank in multiple locations may find themselves running afoul of Google's guidelines if they aren't careful. Luckily, columnist Marcus Miller has outlined some tips to keep your local landing pages white hat.

Getting rankings in Google is such a strange idea... one that many have sold the value of, over and over... but the real value in in the number of leads that such a ranking produces over a long period of time.

Interesting article. Hard to see Bing ever catching up with Google when it comes to market share. Too little too late.
Let's start with the obvious: Google is without a doubt the world's largest and most popular search engine. It's a gigantic dominant digital force of natur

Thanks Joy! I really love when a great comment gets the brain working. 

When Google makes a significant algorithm change that affects search rankings it is usually considered a new or updated ranking signal that we must be aware of.

The tone of Google's announcement should get people thinking about whether the next step will be an actual penalty.

Technically, Google will penalize a website when it violates its guidelines. For now, we should consider this an algorithm update and keep our eye on the guidelines.

If Google really wants to move the dial it will require websites to be mobile friendly and will make it part of its guidelines.

The tone of my post should have read:

Google announces major algorithm change that will affect search rankings. Is a penalty next?

Still putting off fixing your Google Business listing? You may want to reconsider waiting because it is costing you new business.
In a recent poll on BrightLocal.com, we asked over 400 SEOs whether high ranking in local or organic results delivered the greatest response for clients.

Google+ Local (GMB)  - 
 
I am working with a car dealer that has 3 new car brands under the same roof. As far as NAP, they share the same Address but have different phone numbers and names.  

example: DDD Lincoln DDD Jaguar & DDD Land Rover. All have their own website also.

They need 3 separate GMBs as required by their Manufacturers. Anyone dealt with car dealers in this situation? If i create 3 GMBs with the same address but different business names and phone numbers will Google penalize the dealer?

That leads to the point that you can add a listing for your service department as long as it too has a separate number.

Introduction
Hi there, my name is Jeffrey Taylor and I have been an Small Business SEO Specialist and Local Search Marketing Consultant since 1996.

First of all let me just say that I am truly blessed in my life! I have a beautiful wife that I love dearly and 2 young boys that motivate me every day to be the best that I can!

What do I love to do? For over 17 years I have been blessed to be able to do something I truly love and help businesses market online.

My marketing background allows me to look even further than just search engine optimization and help business owners formulate actual marketing plans using local Internet marketing to generate leads or attract more customers.

I specialize in creating Comprehensive Local Internet Marketing Plans designed to generate leads and bring new customers to your business!

How can you generate more leads?
If you are a Small Business you better be ready for big changes in Search Engine Marketing in 2015. Over the past several years, Google sent a very stern message to Business owners and SEO specialists. Guess what? They are changing the rules again in 2015.

The Number One Question I Get Lately....

"What is going on at Google and what do you think we should be doing to stay ahead of the curve?"

Without writing an eBook here let me just say this, whether you are a major car dealer, a plastic surgeon, an electrician, whatever... you better be looking at 3 areas going forward.

1. You better have a serious content management and distribution plan on the table. This content should include blog posts, Videos, and images. No details here, just a warning.

2. A Reputation Management plan in action. The Internet is where people go now to validate purchase decisions. Validation of where they will send their business includes reviews.

Collecting reviews from satisfied customers requires effort and a plan. Handling negative reviews and upset customers requires a level professionalism and tact. DO NOT buy fake reviews! It will come back on you and sooner than you think!

3. Social Presence - You must now focus on building your own local communities and interacting with them. Google looks at social signals more than ever and just posting content is not enough if nobody is sharing your stuff!!

Is Search Engine Optimization SEO DEAD?

I have been involved with SEO for 17 years and I have heard that statement on numerous occasions. SEO continues to evolve. What worked last year may not work this year.

I will say this, Google is never going to stop redefining what is okay and what is spam.

Over the years, I have learned one thing about Google, they really do not care about your small business! Let's face it, they are a 'for profit search engine', and make their money selling Adwords.

If they could make organic listings go away they would, so why should they help you get a top ranking for free?

SEO is NOT DEAD! Just redefined again! Make sure whoever is currently doing your small business SEO is ahead of the Google curve and poised to help you grow in 2015!

Let me leave you with this...

Creating, publishing, and distributing unique and interesting content is King!

Google Releases the New Hummingbird Algorithm!

Whether you are a small business in a local market or a large corporation, you better understand that Google has put its stamp on the importance of Content and Social Signals!

If you are wondering how this new algorithm will affect (or already has) your local presence contact me and let's talk!

 If you do not yet have a real Content Marketing system in the works you are in for a rude awakening as we move through 2015.

Remember, content is more than just writing blog posts, much much more!

Find out exactly what this is all about by contacting Jeffrey direct. Just like what he did in 1996, this is cutting edge SEO.

If you are small business owner in a local market and still do not have a strong presence in the Google Plus Local listings you are losing customers. 

I have a powerful local Internet marketing system for local businesses that works!  We work with Doctors, Dentists, Chiropractors, Auto repair shops, plumbers etc... NO BS, just results!

Are You Ready For 2015? I am!

Living in the local area my family has eaten there several times and the food is OK. The pizza is usually decent, not spectacular. Be careful when going there because on several occasions we arrived ready to eat and even though the dining area was empty we were told it is a one hour wait because of take out orders. Well last night was the last straw and why i recommend people to take their business elsewhere. We arrived with a party of 16 people after football practice (5 families) to sit down and get some food. The sign says they are open until 10 pm and we arrived at 8:28. The bartender - manager rudely told me that the kitchen closes in 2 minutes, so hurry up and order. Not the least bit professional about it. I asked why the sign says 10 pm and he again rudely replied, not tonight, hurry up and order! Well, we packed up and left telling him we will take our money elsewhere, and he replied good! This is 5 families in the area that will never give this place another dime. If you want to be treated like crap for average pizza, by all means give them your business! Never again!

My family was in Virginia Beach for a short vacation and we booked a fishing charter with Aquaman. Captain Nolan showed us a great time and although I'm not an expert fisherman, we still came away with some great fish - and we were able to keep everything we caught. The crew was very professional and was very helpful for a novice fisherman like me. If you are in town and want do some fishing I highly recommend Aquaman Sportfishing!

Rented a movie for my 2 boys last night, went to the Pizza Hut on Tuscan Way in the pouring rain and got home ready to eat! The Pizza was the worst looking Pizza I have ever seen. NO Cheese on 75% of the Pizza. It looked so bad I took a photo of it. Seriously, I shared the photo on Facebook and people were amazed at how poorly this pizza was made. Someone had to take this out of the oven and slice it! This is not an oversight, this is employees that just don't care about quality. To make matters worse they refused to deliver me a new one and I had to load up the boys again and drive back in the rain to pick up another pizza. No comp, and a lame apology.! The manager asked me if I wanted to keep the original Pizza, I replied to him, Would you feed that to your kids? He said no, I wouldn't. I Won't go there anymore! My advice! Before leaving this Pizza Hut check your Pizza carefully! Don't expect help from corporate, I filed a complaint and received NO response.

After moving here from Phoenix a year ago and trying several Dentists, I am happy to say I finally found a great one! I had the same dentist for 17 years and am very picky. Dr Farley at Mill Creek Dental Care is very friendly, professional, and patient oriented. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful sorting out the complicated insurance issues. After several visits and some dental work I am very happy to have found a dentist I can recommend without hesitation.

I just moved to St Augustine and after having a great mechanic for 15 years, I needed repairs on my Suburban. Someone recommended Feldman and although it was a little out of my way, I am glad I went there! It is always nice to deal with the owner and he looked at the vehicle, diagnosed the problem and gave me a price right away. When the repair was completed, they did exactly what they said they would do and the price never changed. I called my old mechanic and gave him the numbers and he said it was right on! Finding an honest car repair shop is tough, but it looks like I did. I look forward to using Feldman auto repair whenever I need car work.

We always have a great time here. The pizza is always very good. It is tough to find good pizza in Arizona. Their Steiner Sausage pizza is awesome. Go during happy hour and save big on personal pizza and cocktails. My kids love the Calamari and pizza. A good choice if you live in the desert ridge area.
