A critical element of success for most small and medium-sized businesses is to ensure that their potential customers can find their business on the search engines. To optimize your chances of ranking well on the search engines, companies need to start to implement a Local SEO strategy that will help them rank over their competitors.

Local SEO is not a set it and forget type thing, and you will need to be working at it on an ongoing basis.

To help you with this task, we wrote the book “Meet Your Community: A Guide to Implementing Local SEO for your Business” now available in ebook and paperback on Amazon. You can check it out at

We also created a support group to help business owners as they implement Local SEO for their business and details can be found in the book.
