Google Places Optimization

Google Places Optimization is A Key to Local SEO Success

If You’re Not Attracting Local Leads, They’re Going Straight to Your Competitors!

As recently as 2009, succeeding with local SEO could be as simple as claiming and verifying your Google Places listing. However, competition among local businesses has skyrocketed during the last few years.

The reason local search optimization has become so much more competitive is because studies have shown that 97% of consumers now use the Internet to find local suppliers.

Because of this increased competition, success requires a Top 7 Google Places ranking. These slots are so important that Google Places marketing experts have nicknamed them the “Magnificent 7.” Businesses who aren’t in one of these coveted sweet spots are out of luck!

What Our Clients Are Saying!


Alisa Bowman

Within weeks of hiring Gerald, he quadrupled my web traffic. He seems to be virtual friends with just about everyone on the Internet, and he knows how things work. I also seriously think he might work at his computer 24-7 because it never takes more than 30 seconds for him to respond to any question I might have. If you have a website that you need optimized, he's your man.
