My site is relatively new, so the PR is very low, but I have been full time working on optimizing my site: dogwalkersmelbourne DOT com DOT au
I have not directly asked for help on this URL before so I figure its about time that I did try and find what is missing
While I am Australian based (22 million population), and my category is 'dog walking', I do rank on page one (near the top) for that term, and a few other related terms. Now I know Google keywords only gives this term 400 odd exact searches a month. But I am wondering if this number of visitors on my site is a relatively low number or the searches are in line with what you would expect? NOTE, most of my visitors are from Australia (so while I have links OS, they just seem to contribute to my PR, not visitor numbers.)
Maybe the question is also about GOOGLE PLACES ... because for many of my searches Google tries to auto complete the capital city Melbourne as part of the search term, which is fine, because I am optimizing for that too. Does anyone know if because google is doing this, whether it is only showing me on page one here (Melbourne) - but not in other Australian states?
OR maybe my ranking is national ranking for the generic dog walking, but the local dog walking businesses (as shown by symbols A to G in amongst the top ten, and shown on the google map on the right) just change in the different states?
Any help with sorting out if I am on track or if anyone can suggest what I might do to boost visitors, specific to my site?
