    Hey guys,

    I have a client of mine who has a local business and it seems his competitor has outranked him in the SERPS with a simple Yelp business listing.

    My question here is, how do I go about getting my clients Yelp page higher up in the SERPS?

    In theory I was thinking it is the same as ranking a youtube video in the sense that all I really need to do is just build backlinks to the yelp listing using the money keyword and in bulk amounts.

    Your thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated!

    Yes treat it like any other page you would like to rank.

    However....Assuming I read it right and your guy has his own site, I would seriously think about ranking his site instead of his Yelp page (you should do BOTH actually). You have MUCH MORE control of anything and everything with his domain vs. Yelp. If it's local listing you need boatloads of citations to rank at the top. Plenty of other stuff too including as many positive reviews as possible too along with good links with decent PR.

    There's more to it than that but there's a good start for you.

    Good luck,
    Con

    By citations do you mean social signals, reviews, etc?

    Do a search on it and you'll find it. Basically citations are what the Yelp listing is. You want to get as many of them as you can. Of course you need to have a real google local page too. Do a search here. There is TONS of info here about ranking local sites. Prepare to stay busy for quite awhile..lol
