    Hi,

    First post here, but been reading many interesting post here!

    I am in the process of creating a new website for my business (wordpress), and I have not quite figured out what I need to do in order for the page to rank high.

    The business is a consulting service aimed at clients geographically located in one city.
    My competition is not very large so it should be possible to rank high on google (there are a few large cooperations that might be difficult to beat).

    The website is very basic:
    - Home
    - Services
    - Service 1
    - Service 2, etc
    - About us
    - News (planning on posting interesting articles that has to do with the services we provide)

    So what should I focus on? I hear all this talk about backlinks, PBN and what not.
    There are not many keywords I need to rank on, maybe 3-5.

    Is it important to set up LinkedIn, Facebook page, Google business, Wikipedia?

    Hope someone can give me some good advice!
