Why Local SEO Does Not End with Google Places


A few weeks ago I wrote an article for Don Campbell‘s Expand 2 Web blog. The article was named “Why Local SEO Does Not End with Google Places” and featured my thoughts on what actually local SEO is.

Recently I am noticing more and more people asking why their listing does not show up for some search queries. The simple explanation – it is not relevant, prominent, or closely located enough. At the same time, I see an increase in articles, which state that simply claiming a Place page and filling in the information correctly and completely would be enough to rank for virtually every search term. The truth – there are tens, hundreds, even thousands of other same industry businesses in the area of operation, and the places on page one are currently just 7. It is virtually impossible that all of them could show up.

I recommend the article to all who are now starting to discover how to market their small business online.
