    Do proper work on off page optimization. Link building, PPT submission, press release submission, and blog submission is the most important things to improve your ranking in local SEO.

    Local citations work well too.

    Get your Google My Business page set up. Optimize all of your landing pages with local keyword data. Ensure your NAP listings remain consistently across the web. Generate genuine reviews from your customers on Google and Yelp. Optimize your search engine snippets. Focus on localized link building.

    Experts please help me with some suggestions.
    See what the top 5 competitors for your keywords are doing, take the best from each , link ect , and also note what theyre doing wrong.
    Focus on optimisation of your page , get multiple site auditors.
    Guest posts on relevant niche preferably local .
    Ask yourself what do you have of value in your niche that you can offer your niches linking neighbourhood and trade it off.
    eg Articles, infographics ,product offers.
    Do not buy links.
    Work on your social network pages for traffic signals.

    Been reading all of the SEO intel. Though I'd put my two cents in.

    BACK LINKING 🖒

    Go have alook as to how its done, if your looking at increasing your ranking with google or any other search engine for that matter back linking is what will vet yout to the first page.

    Hint: sharing the link on whatsapp and anyother social media platform does wonders for this.

    Happy marketing 😁😁

    Just my few cents.

    One other thing to focus on is Google's structured data framework. Most big CMS's have apps for this.

    The page above shows what it does quite well. Obviously also since this was introduced by Google themselves its probably a smart idea to have a look at implementing this on your site. https://developers.google.com/search...tructured-data

    Also you can "confirm" your local address.
    Google sends you like a post card to your registered address and then you put that in to verify your local address.

    It wont get you penalised. It now serves no purpose google claims they ignore the tag yet the extra words can get you penalised .... so if you are already heavy on keywords this can now tip the scale to get you penalised.
    However strangely Bing still uses the tag and yahoo now becoming part of bing does too. Maybe they will depreciate it too. But yea i agree if you are working google get rid of it it serves no purpose to google.




    Any way for that locAL LISTING WITHOUT having to rank at the top of the page......

    Open a google my business account and that will assist with getting you info in the knowledge panel - The google map result for places qualifying for your query that are closest to you.
    Also from google plus open a brand account as this i another source where google will draw info from to see if you qualify for the knowledge panel .
    Use schema markup another source for the local packs information.
    Open a wiki for you business. ( this one needs careful planning and research)
    link your you tube account to your google brand account.

    Make sure you keep it updated and make sure everything especially nap is the same across all accounts.
