Is Google becoming more hyperlocal? by Al Roberts via +Search Engine Watch

Last week, reports surfaced suggesting the possibility that Google has made changes to local map results.

#LocalSEO   #Hyperlocal   
Last week, reports surfaced suggesting the possibility that Google has made changes to local map results. As detailed by Search Engine Roundtable’s Barry Schwartz, in the past week numerous individuals in the SEO community reported seeing compression in the local map pack results. One SEO who was monitoring results for clients observed “massive compression”: In many tested areas (legal, dog boarding, photographers) we were seeing 4+ pages of map ...

Google AdWords Call-Only Ads Automatically Showing Business Name In Headline by +Barry Schwartz

+Joshua Leibner  posted on Twitter that the Google AdWords call only ads is now automatically pulling in the business name into the headlines of the ads. I tested this myself and it seems to be legit.

Look at this call only ad that inserts the business URL/name into the headline in an awkward way:

5 Tiny Mistakes That Confuse Site Visitors and Kill Conversion Rates (and How to Fix Them) by +Jon MacDonald via +Leadpages 

Everyone knows to look out for the big things in landing page design, but it’s the little things that can make you stumble and drop the ball.

When it comes to graphics, you worry about pointing eyes in the right direction, using the correct fonts, and placing each element in exactly the right spot.

When it comes to writing, you try to craft compelling copy to draw the reader in and maintain attention all the way through to the call to action.

That’s all fine and necessary, but the litmus test comes when you consider the results.

When and How to Listen to Google's Public Statements About SEO by +Rand Fishkin via +Moz 

When +Google says jump, it's hard not to jump. Often we take the words of Google representatives as edict and law, but it's important to understand subtleties and to allow for clarification with time.

In today's Whiteboard Friday, Rand discusses some angles to consider that will help you stay grounded when the "Big G" makes a statement about SEO.

5 Cool Things You Can Do with +Google Analytics and +Leadpages

“It was too much data.”

That’s a complaint I’ve heard a from a number of people after they’ve opened up Google Analytics for the first time . . . and then quickly backed away from the tangle of charts, graphs, and numbers they find inside.

Those people are often relieved when they discover Leadpages and its simple analytics dashboard, which gives you just 3 big landing-page statistics: visitors, opt-ins, and conversion rate. Keep tabs on those, and you’ll definitely have enough data to start optimizing (especially if you also use our easy split-testing tool).

#googleanalytics   #leadpages  
Google Analytics can give you extra insight into your website's performance when you use it with Leadpages. Here's where to start if you're just beginning.

Case Study: Why it Makes Sense to Optimize Your Site for ‘Near Me’ Searches by Colleen Harris via +Moz

May 2015 was full of big change in the search world. First, Google announced that, “More Google searches take place on mobile devices than on computers in 10 countries, including the US and Japan.” Then Google followed that up with the news that, “Search interest in ‘near me’ has doubled since last year with 80% of those searches occurring on mobile devices.” In response to these trends, Google updated the local extensions for AdWords, allowing businesses to bid on keywords that deal with “near me” searches.

Know Your Audience: A Guide to Voice and Content Creation by +Alexandra Shostak via +Search Engine Journal

The way to think about where voice and content creation intersect is to consider audience: the audience you have, and the audience you want. From the blog and video topics chosen, to the content’s production style, every aspect of a brand’s content creation needs to be geared towards its audience.

#ContentManagement   #KnowYourAudience   
Before you begin any content creation, whether you’re branding your own blog or helping a new client, you need to know the audience you’re writing for.

The Bayou has hands down the best wings in the Capital District. In my experience and have been dozens of time, the service is excellent. I look forward the Bayou's wing night every Thursday when they have .50 wings ordered to taste, never pre cooked like other places. I love their extra hot/extra crispy wings and the service with a smile that I get everytime keeps me coming back.

Real food for real people. The butcher shop has some of the best fresh meats and eggs in the area. The cafe provides a great option to enjoy the fresh foods served with a smile. I highly recommend to anyone who really cares about what they eat.

Working with Bordeau Builders was an absolute pleasure even though my family chose not to buy. We interviewed a lot of other home builders in the area. Bordeau Builders went above and beyond to meet all our of family's needs in a custom-built home. They are truly a custom home builder. We brought them a floor plan that we liked. They customized it the way that my family and I wanted such as making rooms bigger and switching rooms around. They can truly do anything you want. It's really amazing. When we are ready to build, Bordeau will be our builder.
