H: So Jeff there is lots of conversation going on regarding SEO, can anyone guarantee results?
J: Hi Heather.
Short answer is no. In my experience, most organic traffic to a website, is from branded terms – ie, your business name.
There has been lots of murmuring in the last week within the industry about companies guaranteeing SEO results to business owners and the collective agreement was that it is utter nonsense to be promising that sort result.
Like most things in life, hard work equals reward, and if it’s too good to be true, that’s because it is.
H: So then, what top tip can you give people to help with SEO?
J: Well, I am a big fan of Google My Business. You can display open hours, phone details, company information, products & service descriptions, and importantly reviews.
Now, getting reviews can be a challenging thing to do, and many good companies out there don’t have even a single review on their listing. Yet, they will have many positive stories that are worth giving a shout out for.
So, tonight I’m giving listeners some homework. Go and get just one more review for your Google My Business listing during the month of March.
If you get started, you will keep going. Best of all, real reviews, from real people, are the best form of SEO you can get. Google likes to rank highly reviewed listings & people love to see well reviewed companies.
Just like Web Wonks 37 five star reviews.
