iv been reading this forum for a while now but never posted so heres my first.
i have been tinkering around with seo for about 7 months now as a hobby so to speak for my personal business. after reading some great posts around the web talking about the google proximity lock out i can say i can defiantly see it working for my region. so before a say anything else let me say im a noob lol.
just say i have a plumbing company located outside of new york, but because i offer a traveling service my home etc is based in say trenton ( a suburb outside of the city capital x amount of miles away for new york) but naturally all the traffic is for say plumber new york. But i am ranking well for my little part of the world where i am located trenton. google places rank is A.
well yes the penny has dropped and i have realized i need to have an address in new york city to do any damage for the keywords entitling New york.
So i have made arrangements to have a real and true physical address in new york ( so to speak ) and will be taking possession within a couple of weeks.
so my question is , what is the best methods / strategies i should use when updating my address within google places.
from what i know i should be doing :
1. change address and update places listing with new keywords relating to new city etc then wait for code to arrive.
this is dont know about should i just change the address and wait or revamp and optimize the lot in one sitting pictures,videos & address etc
2. edit website keywords for new related city along with citation on each page.
3.sift through all citation sources and amend to reflect new changes
also i have another question sorry. also i am ranking on the first page of google 10th for "plumber new york" ( so to speak) is this a decent achievement like i dont see it as one untill im first LOL.
hope u can help me out some guys
