    Hi,

    I am doing some SEO for a friends website that currently as no SEO. It is page rank 2 how ever but only 2 back links. They sell beds and mattresses in a town called Bury in a city called Manchester in England.

    The keywords are really competitive that I have come up with and the ones that are not have very little searches. Please see image below.

    Does anyone have any advice for me an keyword alternatives or otherwise? As I am not going to be getting paid full whack for this.

    Cheers

    I would normally tell you to kill yourself and not sell SEO services until you know WTF is up but I'm tipsy, and here in the states, other side of the world so I'm going to help you.

    1) Type his store phone number in search engine. There will be google places page, claim it.
    -DO same for yahoo and bing. Claim them as well.

    2)WAIT. Tell your friend to wait as well. A week to 10 days should work.

    3) Get keyword data (searches, visits, etc.) from G,Y & B and go from there.

    :confused: Won't the keywords only be for what I optimised the listing for? Seems pointless, please correct me if I am missing something.


    Thanks! Good method for click bank etc but not really great for this company sadly :(

    When you create a blog do searchers only find you through the KWs you selected? NO! People find you bu batshit crazy search terms and search strings. Well when you see this you're seeing more obscure shit people are searching for.

    Just set up the accounts as I said and log in to them a week later and see where you're getting impressions from. These won't be far off from what you're trying to rank for. Then you have an idea what search terms they are using in the hundreds and maybe thousands.

    Next you punch the biz phone number in again and claim and optimize free local listing sites on page 1, 2 and 3 for KWs. Keep all info SAME across the board. Dupe content is not penalized here but held higher for credibility. If they have videos, upload them to these sites but at very least images should be added monthly at least for 1st few months and named after KWs. You can charge them for monthly upkeep of this as well as blog posts etc.

    As a bonus since you're charging $ for something you're not an expert at, 2X a week go to library or wherever and give them reviews on citysearch or whatever your local sites are. Not all fabulous 5 star reviews but some 3 & 4 star reviews letting them know a SMALL negative or 2 of the place. Do this for 2 weeks then once a month for 2 or 3 mnths go to different library and give another review on these sites. Use KWs in reviews and these give sites what G calls sitations. They are greater than backlinks but must come from different ip address.

    Once you go through this process for 2-3 businesses you will be an expert and can do this shit in your sleep. Good luck bro.

    Thanks for that, appreciate it.

    Will doing this bring the actual websites SERP higher or the Google place listing higher?

    Also is it worth building back links to these business profiles?

    Cheers man

    No the places and stuff works off citations. Which are all info same on all other sites as well and reviews. When you find KWs to use, then you can get profile backlinks and buy a small blast for main site as ranking locally is pretty easy.
