How did you end up on a weird little site like this, anyway? It wasn’t so long ago that all you had to do was run a good business. Now it seems you have no choice but to muck around with Google and the “local map,” and your effort to get more visible isn’t going the way you hoped. So now you’re looking for clear answers as to what’s going on and what needs to happen next.
Add in tough competitors, slippery competitors, slippery marketing companies, impractical SEO advice from “experts,” algorithm updates, Google’s messed-up policies, COVID and lockdowns, a limited budget, and limited time, and you feel like you’re trying to untangle a plate of spaghetti.
If that’s your situation, you have come to the right place. Whether you’re a do-it-yourselfer who just needs clear (and free) local SEO advice, or you need a local search consigliere to help you figure it out and get it done, this site is all you need to start moving in the right direction.
My specialty is helping smaller businesses get visible in the local search results – and get more customers/clients/patients (not just ranking reports) out of the deal. I’m not someone who works with Big Ugly Corporations and assumes you have a “team,” a plump budget, and no other demands on your time.
I know what works and what the trade-offs are, which is why I’m known far and wide for my ability to understand a tough situation, offer clear and practical advice, and plan the work and work the plan. In my 73 “Internet years” in the local SEO field, I’ve made strong businesses even stronger and – especially since early 2020 – have helped save more than a few businesses that were down to their last bullets.
No matter what, I suggest you poke around this site and make use of my free info – on my blog and in my free guide and emails. You can use my advice to improve your own local search visibility, starting now. If you determine you’d like help, you can check out my services, read what my clients say, and contact me for help.
