About This Courseintermediate

Do you want to learn how to rank your business higher in Google Search?

Do you own a small business?

Do you just want to do the work on your own?

This is the perfect course for you.

I’ve created a step-by-step course that walks you through everything you need to know about boosting your visibility in the Google local map pack.

In August of 2015, Google changed the “local 7 pack” into the “local 3 pack”.

It’s now more important than ever to be working on Local Search Optimization for your business.

Only 3 businesses are now shown within the local business pack when typical “service + city” terms are used in Google search.

Here is what’s included in this course:

  • Setting up your website for local search
  • Setting up your Google+ business page
  • Adding your business to important website directories such as Yelp
  • Setting up basic social media profiles such as Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn for business.
  • I’ll walk you through several tools that can be used for tracking your rankings and auditing your business for search.
  • I’ll show you the importance of content and how to optimize it for your business
  • I’ll provide ways to generate more reviews for your business on Google, Yelp, and others.
  • I’ll show you some other websites you can use to generate new clients for your business.
