This list I am about to write here is just a guide to give you a better idea as to what steps will combine to lift your ranking results and get you leads.
(I should probably add that I am writing this out of my head and might leave out a few valuable details, details that I will never leave out if you were my client – This I say because I have a total-honesty-alarm built into my brain.)
ONE – You need to be registered and have claimed your listing on the Google My Business platform. Google will rank unclaimed listings, but for best results, you need to claim your listing.
TWO – You need to go into your listing and fill out EACH AND EVERY single space they provide you for information related to your business and your services. The more you tell them, in the correct places, the better you will rank.
THREE – You need to have at least 20 RELEVANT images. These images should be of high quality and be very specific to your products or services.
FOUR – These images must be correctly optimized.
FIVE – You need to publish core posts. They need to be informative and user friendly.
SIX – You need to publish regular keyword orientated posts.
SEVEN – If your rankings need a boost, then you need to build interlinked silo posts and power those silos to top the rankings.
EIGHT – You need to stick to a set NAP (Name Address Phone number) format that you will use everywhere in your comments, your citation and everywhere else online.
NINE – You will need to get real (quality) reviews. This is huge as people base their buying decisions on those reviews.
TEN – You need to get as many citations as you can. These would be local directories and classified type sites. They can be a mix of free and paid listing. Make sure your NAP is consistent. Make sure that you complete these citation listings with as much information as you are allowed to add to them.
ELEVEN – The better your actual website is – in every aspect – the better your rankings will be in local search results.
TWELVE – Use your social media accounts to drive traffic to your listing. This is for multiple reasons.
THIRTEEN – Get backlinks to your listing.
FOURTEEN – Get DigitalGarden.ca to do all this for you!
