Getting your business listed to the top of search engines is probably one of the most important marketing strategies you can take in today’s market. Today more and more people turn to the internet to find local businesses and services and the trend continues to grow.
It was not too long ago that most customers would turn to the yellow pages to find a local merchant or service provider for their needs. But, the world is changing fast and the internet has pretty much destroyed the traditional ways local businesses get their leads from. With computers and smart phones today it is much easier to jump on line and not only find a service or merchant locally but get reviews and rating from others about that business.
Local SEO pioneer Jim E Accardi discusses with us today simple easy steps to help get your listing on top of the search engines including Google. I asked him to name 5 things you can do today to help get your business to the top.
1. Get your business listed on Google Places along with Yahoo local directory and Bing’s. These are quick and easy and of course free to do.
2. Find review websites and submit your business for a free listing. There are many of them out there from Yelp, Kudzu, Merchant Circle, and etc. Make sure you ask your customers to give you reviews. This will give potential customers a third party review of your services and products allowing them the ability to decide if you are the right fit for them.
3. Share your link on other industry websites. Get listed in your industry association, local Chamber of Commerce, and other large reputable association. These types of backlinks give you plenty of backlink juice which can propel your site to the top.
4. Trade links. Know other professionals in your industry that are not competitors? Why not trade links. Trading links with the right websites can still give you plenty of backlink juice. You can also gain new customers and leads as this cross networking works for a mutual benefit for both businesses.
5. Do it! The most common reason I see business owners fail today is because they never take action. You might be one, you have intention of doing something but because of time or just commitment you never actually follow through. Well now is the time and only you can make your business successful. Write a list down and give yourself a dead line to complete them. Then make sure you follow through.


So there you are Jim E Accardi’s 5 easy steps to improve your local business and have it rank higher to the top of search engines. I hope you take these great steps today and gain more leads!
