Frequently Asked Questions


Got questions?   Just scroll down and click on a question to see the answer.

Please feel free to email me if you don’t find your answer here.

Note: this isn’t an FAQ about all the ins and outs of ranking well.  (That’s what my blog and free guide are for.)

Can you guarantee specific rankings?

No.  Nobody can.  But I can help you as I’ve helped others.

How do I know you can help MY business?

I guess you can’t know ahead-of-time, but you can be pretty confident.

I’ve helped all kinds of business owners.  You can see testimonials from some of my clients.  You can also read all about my experience.

It’s easy to know what work I’ll do for you because I’ve laid it out in detail in my blog posts and in my free guide.  You can judge for yourself whether those steps sound like they can help your business.

However you go about it, I hope you do what feels right to you.


I have a list of keywords I want to rank for. Can I rank for all of them?

Maybe.  It depends on lots of factors—like what your business is, how dead-on relevant each of the keywords is to your services, and how many businesses like yours are in your local area.


I serve lots of local towns. Can I get visible in Google in all of them?

It’s possible for you to get visible in all of the towns you serve IF you have a Google+ Local business listing for and a physical location in each town.  It’s more of a “maybe” if you only have one location, and (for better or for worse) you can’t cherry-pick. In that case, it’s also possible (but a challenge) to get visible in the neighboring towns you serve.

You can’t take the “local” out of local search.


Do you only work with US clients?

No.  I’ve worked with business owners outside the US.  Of course, most of my clients are fellow Americans.  But I like working with smart, hardworking business owners from any country.


You seem to focus on the US. Do your techniques also work in other countries?

They sure do.  Google doesn’t care what country your business is in.  The only differences are that local markets in other countries sometimes may have different levels of local competition (e.g., a greater or lower density of competitors in a specific city), or that you might need to list your business on different third-party sites than you would need to in America.  But the local-visibility process is mostly the same.


Why are you giving me all this free info? Are you trying to sell me something?

Of course I offer my services on this site.  Like you, I run a business.  I’d be a fool if I didn’t make sure you know full well about how I can help you, if you want me to.

But I never push my offerings.  I try to give before I get.  I try to give you choices as to how you’d like to get more visible — hence all the free info on this site and in my emails.


Where’s your Facebook page?

I started using Facebook back in ’06—several years before everyone and his grandmother had one.  But I don’t use it as “home base” for my business (this site is home base).

If you want to stay up-to-date, the best way is to get on my email list and to follow me on Twitter and Google+.


I like your materials. Can I pass them along to my friends?

Absolutely.  Thanks in advance!


Do you have an affiliate system?

As in something I sell through ClickBank that you can simply sign up to sell?  No.  But I’m open to hearing creative ways we can help each other out.  Just email me a rough sketch of what you have in mind.


Can you produce some “white-label” materials?

Maybe, if the price is right.  Just tell me what you’re looking for.


Did you find the answer to your question? I hope so.  If not, please drop me a line.
