Do you want to learn how to rank your business higher in Google Search?

Do you own a small business?

Do you just want to do the work on your own?

This is the perfect course for you.

I’ve created a step-by-step course that walks you through everything you need to know about boosting your visibility in the Google local map pack.

In August of 2015 Google changed the “local 7 pack” into the “local 3 pack”.

It’s now more important than ever to be working on Local Search Optimization for your business.

Only 3 businesses are now shown within the local business pack when typical “service + city” terms are used in Google search.

In this course I walk you through the basics of:

  • Setting up your website for local search

  • Setting up your Google+ business page

  • Adding your business to important website directories such as Yelp

  • Setting up basic social media profiles such as Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn for business.

  • I walk you through several tools that can be used for tracking your rankings and auditing your business for search.

  • I show you the importance of content and how to optimize it for your business

  • I provide ways to generate more reviews for your business on Google, Yelp and others.

  • I show you some other websites you can use to generate new clients for your business.

If you’ve been struggling with SEO for many years as a local business, this is the course for you!

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
