I am a huge fan of Brian Deans course and he is brilliant with some of what he has figured out. My dilemma is I see the wisdom of his advice about targeting your content toward people of influence who can send traffic your way and possibly link back. Makes sense. But I see a huge disconnect between what my 'linkerati' (to steal a phrase) would see value in and what my prospective clients would see value in. I know it's true - 90% of the SEO blogs are creating content that is WAY over the average small business owners head. I've seen it 150 times I bet, from speaking engagements to clients meetings to workshops - I don't think I have talked to ONE person in the last two years that understood Title Tags or had any idea what it means to 'optimize' a webpage. On one hand I don't think any 'wheels' in the SEO world are going to link back to my Title Tag blog post but if that's what my clients would really see value in..... Any thoughts would be appreciated! Anything I can do to help anybody in here just ask. Happy to do so. I went ahead and attached a link to a SEO guide I constantly reference when explaining SEO to a new client just to give you an idea what (in my experience) has helped me.

Google+ Local (GMB)  - 
 
I have an SEO agency and speak (in my local area) a good bit and meet with potential clients pretty regularly and I swear the MOST misunderstood, greatest disconnect I run into is understanding Google+, Google Local, Google My Business, Google Places, Google Maps. It seems like SUCH a moving target! I don't think I have talked with a single business owner that has the foggiest idea if they have claimed their profile or who did it or when (or how to log into it) I admit with SEO being such a dynamic, evolving industry I have a hard time keeping up myself. I love how Google makes things SIMPLE and easy (usually) but it seems like this one area changes on a pretty regular basis. Can anybody else relate to this? Any advice on helping clients understand Google +, etc or do you not bother and do it for them? Any advice for ME on how to best manage it for them!? :) Thanks for ANY input and I hope everybody had a peaceful, relaxing Christmas holiday!

Take care,

Matthew

As an authority, you may want to mention you could go into it - but would rather focus on the business issues they are having and the best way to address those things. If they press for explanations, I would ask how they feel it might be impacting their leadgen, branding & ROI - could be that they are just spooked by some seo fud marketing. G+ is just another tool in the bag (or evil trick, depending on who you ask). Your client /CEO only needs to understand the resulting value of what you do with it. The people that don't have the funds to invest in you are the only ones that need to learn all of the nonsense of G+L/MB in order to DIY... Along with being their own plumber, locksmith, dentist, etc. Frankly, for those people, there's YouTube. So personally, I think it's probably a waste of your time unless it can spark a more valuable conversation.

Everyone's talking about the importance of creating "epic" content. But how do you actually do it? This post has the answers you need.

Great company! We had spiders like crazy when we first into our new house. One call - problem fixed.

Seriously, am I wasting my time blogging? (even if I produce really good content?) I run an SEO agency and 98% of my business comes from speaking engagements and referrals and referral partners. That has been the best avenue (in my experience) to get in front of IDEAL seo clients who see the value in it and can afford to spend $1-2k a month for my services. I like writing and want to 'practice what I preach' but I don't want to waste my time either. I DO like the idea of having a body of GOOD, helpful content so people can really see I know my stuff and not just full of hot air. Thanks for ANY input! :)

Organic SEO  - 
 
Quick question pretty please. I am redoing my site and I have a number of OLDER, smaller blog posts I am not particularly proud of. Should I just delete them? My content has gotten MUCH better and many of them are so weak and thin they are embarrassing. http://new.sawwebmarketing.com/promote-blog-posts-like-pros/ - should I make them better or just lose them? (they aren't doing anything to drive traffic now but don't want to upset what rankings I have now. Thanks for any thoughts :)

Nice people. Good food. Has a nice 'homey' feel. We just moved to the area and have been a few times and always been happy.

This is a great find! The indoor, do-it-yourself area to wash our dog was a lifesaver. Great foods and a TON of different treats, snacks and chew toys. Really nice lady and good prices. Will be back for sure!

We had the guys from Patton out when we moved last fall and they did a great job. We were really impressed. Very knowledgeable and explained everything very well. We just bought a (newer) house and termites were an issue at the home inpection. I'm just glad we got out in front of it before they got worse!
