Be prepared for a big shakeup in Google search rankings over the coming months if your site is not considered as being mobile friendly as Google moves to a second mobile index that will become the primary index. Read our post for an explanation of why this has come about and what it means

This is probably one of the better comparison reviews I have read and puts each of these 2 CMS platforms in reasonable perspective. Whilst we don't use either of these platforms we still see that each fulfils a need in the market for different reasons so if you are determined to consider one of these 2 platforms this is worh treading
Not that we use either of these 2 CMS platforms (we believe for our purposes and the needs of our target market Business Catalyst is a better solution), they do each fill a significant need in the market and serve a certain purpose. For those considering either of these this article is well worth reading.

PS. And when you have made a decision, talk to us and we will let you know if we have a better solution for you...

What You Need Beyond Organic SEO: You can work on many things to improve your rankings with SEO. Some are more complex or difficult than others but that is not what I want to talk about here. High ranking in Google search results requires not one, but three different strategies. In addition to those you already are using to your organic optimisation. No longer is gaining a suitable placement in organic search results sufficient. You now need to consider your ranking in Google Local, Google Maps and Google Mobile as each can present quite different results to the other. To explain this than those of you feeling a little confused; when people talk about Google ranking. This should be for organic results in the search results when using Google.com.au. Now even these results will vary from one computer to another and depending on whether you are logged into Google account at the time. Factors that most affect the results you see are: * your past search and browsing history. * Your location setting (this is shown at the bottom of page results) If you are using Google a mobile device and Google uses a slightly different search engine, which most importantly gives preference to those sites that are mobile friendly. Again, your current location affects the results presented as well as other standard optimisation factors taken into account by Google. Local Search Result in Google  At the top of your organic results immediately beneath the Adword results, you will see a map with three listings beneath. These are the Google Local results. Being at the top of the page after sponsored Ads, it is important that you pay attention to this as part of your SEO campaign. With only three listing shown there is fierce competition for these positions. Optimising your business that. These listings largely centred on your Google my business page and Google reviews. Further to this and depending on exactly what it is you are searching for, you can have your My Business details displayed as a full side block Ad for your business in organic search results on the very first page. You do of course need to have a god quality My Business listing fully completed and optimised for the key search terms. It is not necessary that the search term specifically inlcude the location to see these in the results page. The screenshot below shows how yoru My Business details will be presented in Google organic results. Search Results in Google Maps The Google maps results are most listing shown when you are in Google maps and search for a service, product or brand stop Google maps presents a list of results closest to your current location and marks each business on the Mac. Results here are purely driven from your my business listing or any unclaimed business listings Google might have completed itself. Ranking is influenced by the quality of your business listing, location and again reviews. Why Local SEO is Growing Importance Each mode of searching is relevant to your business. What you need to pay attention to in ranking your site will vary between each of these search modes so you need to be giving attention to each one. With 4 out of 5 consumer-based searches across the Internet being local intent driven and with most businesses looking to local or regional as their primary markets, Local SEO is becoming equally important in SCO campaign or any other initiatives put in place. For regions such as the Gold Coast with many small businesses looking to their market being within 15 Kms of their address, good Local SEO ranking is paramount.
