SEO Help for Small Business
A Time Stamp Summary

+David Amerland gives solid, practical Small Business advice which shows how practices that are good for your business are good for your SEO - and vice versa.

Below is a time stamp summary to give you an overview and also the ability to zoom in to any part of the discussion that is of particular interest to you. Desktop users simply click on the time stamp.  On mobile, move the slider under the video to the desired time.

1:40 - Introduction of +David Amerland

3:15 - Why search is so critical

4:51 - Was SEO Help written with small business in mind?

A small business operates in the same datasphere as a large one.  The practices are the same for large and small companies.

7:50 - Small Business Advantages:

Small businesses do things faster, easier, and at a lower cost.
What's hard is finding the time and discipline to do everything you need to do.

10:41 - Motivation:  For large corporations it's extrinsic, for small companies it's intrinsic.  The solution is the same… clear, internal communication.

11:55 - What you need to know about semantic search and how it's leveling the playing field.

15:06 - Big businesses have fixed processes. Although small businesses are constantly re-prioritizing, they need to create processes, too, albeit more flexible ones.

17:42 - Doing something is always better than doing nothing.  Today, it's a must to get some knowledge and work with it.

18:37 - +Georg Buech asks if the term 'SEO' is still relevant?

19:37 - Your online identity and your website. Another small business advantage

25:22 - Consistency, the pressures a small business faces, and working smarter.

27:33 - What can you do that gives the quickest SEO gains?

1) rock solid hosting
2) fast website with quick load times
3) be sure your site is mobile friendly

29:17 - Google+ is the greatest shortcut in terms of search.

31:39 - The challenges of transitioning to Google+ from other social networks. 

35:32 - Use Google+ to build your reputation and increase your visibility. What makes Google+ difficult is that there are a lot of tools there and you need to take your time to understand them and which ones you want to lead with.

38:57 - +Steve Bonin  asks about load time and content management systems.

The kind of content you put on the page itself is more important than the CMS you use.

40:45 - +Danielle Milne  asks what's the number one thing a brand new business should be doing on Google+, as opposed to an established business?

Both need a Google My Business Page, but the newer business needs to make sure they are using a real person to drive the connections forward and to give the business a voice.

42:18 - Is it better to build trust on Google+ with a personal profile or a business page? - from  +Georg Buech

Begin with a profile.  Always remember that Google+ (and social media) is not a one-to-many broadcast platform.

45:33 - +Michael Mason  asks how the web design community can work together to help small businesses.

Short answer: transparency.

46:40 - Do you see April 21 (the date when Google will start using mobile-friendly as a ranking factor in mobile search) as a significant date for small businesses? - from +Michael Mason

If mobile search is important for your business, you need to have a responsive site.

50:43 - +Farinaz Parsay asks about David's new books coming out.

51:17 - A summation of SEO Help

52:34 - How do you decide where to start and how to prioritize the 20 steps described in SEO Help?

Start with what you're good at.  Lead with your strengths.

54:11 - Should you still consider keywords? And what about links?

Bottom Line: Don't be specifically concerned about either of them.  If your content is of sufficient quality, the links will take care of themselves.

57:06 - Parting Thoughts

FaceBook is a walled garden when it comes to search.  
If you're working in Google+, whatever you do there actually surfaces in search.

All of your social media activities create a digital footprint.  Make sure you link them together because this creates greater authority from a search point of view.

59:39 - Famous Last Words (from SEO Help )

"SEO... represents an opportunity. The chance to prove that armed with a little knowledge, a website, a good business plan and passion, a small business can create as good an experience and presence on the web as a big one, and do it better."

And from  +John Ellis  in the comments…

"Consistency wins...probably the one thing big brands do have over small is the ability to be consistent."

"Use the social networks for what they do best. Facebook tends to share things well, Twitter is fantastic for crowdsourced media. Google+ is where your brand is built. "

"One video can be turned into multiple short videos, blog posts, podcasts, and images. HOA's are perfect for the three R's. Repackage, repurpose, republish."

Huge thanks to +David Amerland and to our fantastic audience, both in person and online, for watching and engaging. Special thanks to those who asked questions and were active in the comments!

Your Website, Front and Center

We hear a great deal about defining and communicating your business identity, but often forget that your website is ground zero for where it all begins.

In a stellar post from +Gina Fiedel  for +Fat Eyes Web Development , she reminds us that your website is homebase for all your online activities, and  _harnessing_ your brand identity - making it work for you - begins there.

She goes on to describe the balance between form (design) and function; your own interests and those of your potential customers.

"If you remove design, or overly diminish its purpose, there is no convincing container to put the message in and it loses power. If you have no compelling message, one that converts visitors, all you’ve got is a pretty picture."

Do read the full post for a valuable discussion of the role your website plays in mobilizing your brand identity.  It will make you view your website in a new light!

Target Your Ideal Customer While Harnessing Brand Identity On Your Website

Your website is your virtual anchor, the hub for all your online activities, your home base and the very center of your online identity. It’s the place where you have the greatest potential and generous real estate for swiftly communicating your most important asset and distinction:

Who you are.

It is a potent opportunity for the personality and essence of your brand to be blatantly evident and felt throughout its pages and the blog. But there's a catch.

What Comes First?

Debates about design vs. functionality and whether form-follows-function or function-follows-form are rampant in the marketing and web development industries. We are firmly in the form-follows-function camp but at the same time, we also believe there is an interdependent relationship between the two.

If you remove design, or overly diminish its purpose, there is no convincing container to put the message in and it loses power. If you have no compelling message, one that converts visitors, all you’ve got is a pretty picture.

The task is to balance the messaging of your own identity with enough sensitivity to the identity of your visitor to make sure the expression of one becomes the appropriate container for the productive experience of the other.

This is a paradox the needs to be incorporated into your web design without fail. Brand Identity & targeting ideal customer is a necessary balancing act.

Google+ Tips/Strategies  - 
 
Share the Burden: Add Managers to Your Google My Business Page

You don't have to go it alone.  If you own a Google My Business Page, you can add managers that can do almost anything the owner can.  

Want help but don't want to give out that much authority?  Add a community manager instead who can post and comment but is limited in other regards.

This nifty chart sums it up nicely!

Thanks to +Jaana Nyström via Google+ Help.

#googlemybusiness  
 
Owners and managers on Google+ pages

There are three types of admins for Google+ pages: owners, managers, and communications managers. 

Each page can only have one owner, but it can have up to 50 managers or communications managers. 

Adding managers allows you to share control of your page posting and settings with multiple people without having to share your personal login information.

Google My Business Goes Hand in Hand with Local Mobile Search

We know how important mobile search is becoming and most of it concerns local businesses.

+Nick Rink, in an article for +Plus Your Business!  makes the case and explains how GMB is necessary  for:

-> showing your business location on the map, opening hours, and a click to call button

-> improving branding with the use of photos and virtual tours

-> building reputation via reviews (you need at least 5)

There are also several links for additional help and info.

As Nick says,
"...Google My Business is essential for local mobile search success."

Thanks, +Nick Rink  for making this easy to read and digest, and to +Plus Your Business! and +martin shervington for sharing!

How would you define the meaning and importance of honesty and integrity?

On the surface this may seem like an obvious question, but +Gina Fiedel delves into the nuances and nooks and crannies of truthfulness.

She considers how honesty and integrity are applied externally - your business dealings, your public image; i.e. how you represent your business.

But then she goes deeper and applies these values to one's internal environment and the challenges of honest self reflection.  You have to be honest with yourself before your can be honest with others.

She concludes that mutual trust demands honesty and actually creates greater connection.

There's a lot more to this subject than you might think so do read the full post.  

Also look for the Network Round Table HOA on May 4th and 8th in which +Gina Fiedel  will be hosting (along with yours truly) to discuss Honesty and Integrity in Business with Superhero +David Amerland and his worthy Sidekick, +Oleg Moskalensky. +Kristin Drysdale  will be doing the production honors.

Honesty Culture: Truth In Business
Who Are You? Who Do You Want To Be?

I’ve noticed that we take a lot for granted when we consider our views on core values, especially those we think of as wholesome. I suspect it’s because they appear, on the surface, to be so obvious, so honorable that to talk about them may seem a little dull and as a result, they become neglected and cheap. We make assumptions and the feelings in our gut don’t get quite the introspective attention they might deserve. So it’s not unusual for us to nod in approval and move on to other topics.

Yet when we get down to the nitty-gritty, the place where we’re revealing the details of our regard, we might discover that there are disagreements, conflicts of meaning and intention, misunderstandings. Nuances that steer us in opposing directions and into the territories of disappointments, disconnect and conflict.

How would you define the meaning and importance of honesty and integrity?

Imagining that I’m listening to our collective answers, from what I hear they seem to be pretty well aligned.

For Full Article: http://www.fateyes.com/honesty-culture-truth-in-business/

Take It A Step Further

How do you apply those values of honesty and integrity in conversations and your relationships, your actions and omissions – the things that become the compilation of the experiences you have in your business and that become your public image? The compilation that illustrates what working with you or your company feels like. What it's like to buy from you. How your clients, customers, colleagues, co-workers, staff, see you and relate to you. If you aren’t creating a culture of trust based on your own trustworthy, honest, integrous behaviors why would anyone around you feel compelled to? In fact, the influence you have on your environment might just be the opposite of what you declare you want. And think that you are providing.

“When someone shows you who they are believe them; the first time.” – Maya Angelou

Now Take It Deeper Still

How do you apply honesty and integrity to your internal environment, the conversation inside the privacy of your own mind and heart? In the place that no one ever need witness. Are you honest with yourself? You might be less so than you think. We keep our own secrets without even knowing it.

We’re so utterly faithful, that sometimes we don’t even realize we’re lying to ourselves.

We can be elaborate mistruth-tellers. And we can lie to ourselves about that.

It takes a certain concerted, vigilant self-observation to lay in wait and catch the guilty-as-charged moments. It takes commitment. Beyond that, it takes effort to do it differently, to not let those small infractions go under our radar.

And to make complete honesty even more elusive or mercurial, our memories play tricks on us. Every experience we have can be interpreted and rewritten, remembered in countless ways and that can shape and re-shape our sense of honesty.

Multiply that by everyone you are in communication with and the opportunity for truths that have been ever so slightly skewed in apparent innocence or fabricated knowingly increases. Because each individual will naturally have their version of everything. You get my drift.

My dive into this topic was inspired in part by the upcoming +Network Round Table: The Softer Side of Business #corevalues HOA I’ll be co-hosting discussing Honesty and Integrity in business with Superhero +David Amerland and his Sidekick  +Oleg Moskalensky on May 4th and 8th with +Marilyn Moore and producers +DENNIS N. DUCE  and +Kristin Drysdale.

 *Google+: Not Just Another Social Network*

What is it about Google+ that most small businesses don’t “get”?

The first thing to understand is that Google+ is not just another social network like Facebook. So the first mistake is to treat it like one.  Fact is,  from the beginning Google stated clearly that it intended Google+ to be the “next Google with a social layer over all of its products”. But still with all of that, so many want to treat it as just another social network because it does have many social features.   An analogy would be owning a pickup truck. You can use it to run errands to the market and bank, but the real function of a truck is to haul stuff. And though it can be used “like just another car” it is not; it is a truck.

+martin shervington , founder and mastermind behind the +Plus Your Business!  Community, will be joining +John Moore  and myself next Tuesday, May 12 on the SmallBusinessWebTech  Show to talk about how to use this "truck" we call Google+.

We are thrilled to have +martin shervington 
 with us, who understands and uses Google Plus like no other!

This event, as always, will be dedicated to small business concerns so bring your questions, your frustrations, and your success stories to share.  We want to hear from YOU during the show!

Be sure to RSVP YES or MAYBE to get this in your calendar and queue.

Event shared by +Marilyn Moore for +RightStart Websites 

#SmallBusinessWebTech   #smallbusiness   #googleplusbusiness   #googleplus  
 
Google+ is one of the best kept secrets for small businesses.  Ask a group of small businesses if they have a Google+ account and you get a few raised hands. Ask again if anyone USES Google+ for their business and few, if any hands, go up.

Why is that? 

What is it about Google+ that most small businesses don’t “get”?

The first thing to understand is that Google+ is not a social network like Facebook. So, the first mistake is to treat it like one.  Fact is,  from the beginning Google stated clearly that it intended Google+ to be the “next Google with a social layer over all of its products”. But still with all of that, so many want to treat it as just another social network because it does have many social features.   An analogy would be owning a pickup truck. You can use it to run errands to the market and bank, but the real function of a truck is to haul stuff. And though it can be used “like just another car” it is not; it is a truck.

So what IS Google+, and why does that matter for small businesses?

Google+ is an identity platform with a wide range of tools (Communities, Hangouts, etc..) to help you and your business build your identity as a brand, and develop trust and authority.  Through those tools, a business can have increasing impact on semantic search.  These tools are free, and are equally available for everyone. This levels access to the identity and branding game for to both large and small businesses. Most importantly, there are a number of ways that small business has an advantage in this game.

At this point you should be smacking yourself on the forehead and saying, “Wow, I could have been using Google+!”

Seriously though, the next step is to figure out HOW to use Google+ for your business and +Marilyn Moore and I have the man for that job joining us for our next Small Business WebTech Show,+martin shervington,“Mr. Google+”, himself.  Martin specializes in helping businesses build their brand on Google+.  This is an incredible opportunity to kick start your business identity and brand on Google+.  

All you have to do is show up!

Are you happy with what you're seeing in your G+ stream?  Are you seeing quality posts or too many that are irrelevant and of no interest to you?

Top Contributor, +Peggy K , gives a rundown of how you can easily adjust your settings so that your stream is filled with what you want to see.

She explains how to adjust your settings for:

1.  What's hot
2.  Circles
3. Communities

Getting your settings right for your preferences will make a huge difference in your G+ experience!

Thanks to +Peggy K  - and to +CircleCount and +MaAnna Stephenson for sharing!
