Citations (core online profiles) are both the #2 and #5 Google Map ranking factors. I always work with clients on Google My Business and Moz Local (since those are the most important profiles). But I outsource creating all the other profiles to Whitespark for $4-5 per citation. You can either upsell this to clients (eg. for $10 per citation) or refer them as a Whitesaprk affiliate and make a 10% commission.

2,000 Words – Hardly anyone does this because they are super lazy or just don’t know that this simple strategy works like a charm. If you’re targeting “SEO Albany” on your your SEO services page, then make sure that page has at least 2,000+ well written words or more. This worked for me and the data has shown this to work as well. Check out this graph below by serpIQ. As you can see, there is a direct correlation between having more words on a page and higher rankings in Google.
I dabbled a LOT with hiring a link builder on upwork.com and freelancer.com. Even though some of them got great results (I was the #1 WordPress SEO Consultant in Google), don’t do it. Not only did I learn the links were spammy, but I got a penalty on my website.
Header Tags – This blog post utilizes three different levels of HTML header tags that help break the content into sections as well as let search engines know more about what each section of content is about. The

After you took the special course (or not), you should write a business plan. Knowing beforehand what your goals and objectives are will make everything easier.

The first question anyone who starts a company should ask themselves is, “How do I get customers?” It’s a question that I didn’t have an answer to when I first got started. So, I just opened up the phone book and started cold calling businesses, literally. If you didn’t have a web address next to your name and phone number I called you. That was my strategy. If your heart is starting to race and you’re beginning to sweat, stop worrying. I’m not going to tell you to cold call anyone out of the phone book. Do they even make phone books anymore?
