Long time lurker, first time poster- great place here I have about 15 lead generation sites in local niches (Australia) - I'm ranking in the top 3 organically for all of them, and am struggling with the local 7 pack. Google doesnt seem to have a set algo, and depending on the keyword, there will be 1-3 organic sites ranking above the 7 pack, in some cases all of them rank under the 7 pack. I want to dominate both, but dont want duplicate sites in each niche. Can I use separate pages though? For example. So the page that you assign into Google local is an internal page that is built around that keyword. Will this allow me to rank in both Organic and local? Any help would be majorly appreciated. Also, a semi related question: I have 3 lead sites that were hit slightly in the recent 2.1 update, from #1 to #20-30. Can I turn them into local sites? If I add them to Google local, will they still rank through citations etc, even though they have incurred a slight penalty it seems? I'm trying to figure out if there are separate ranking algorithms for Organic and Local. Really appreciate any sort of assistance here, thank you.
