"basement waterproofing nj".
I've checked several times on hidemyass and we're in position 4.
Which happens to display underneath all the google place/plus listings.
So I'm not even sure if thats technically considered position 4.
There are position 1,2 & 3 in organic results.
Then positions 1-7 in local results.
Then we're the first 1 under local results.
We are also working on ranking for 14 other keywords.
But my question is this. For SEO, I guess you don't get any traffic if you display underneath the local research results?
Our top 3 competitors are some pretty big companies. One of them is a franchise actually. And we're just a local business.
So my question is, to make SEO work, what should we be aiming to do?
We're not just focused on this 1 keyword like I said, but we have been doing SEO for it the longest. The long tailed keywords we only started going after maybe a couple months ago.
But I don't understand how we're suppose to get consistent traffic.
It seems to me, like you have to put a major "dent" in google to accomplish this.
Would it be smarter to aim for local search results?
Would it be smarter to NOT focus on google at all, and get like 60 videos ranked on youtube? Then start getting fans to our facebook?
How do you guys get traffic? Aside from PPC?
Thanks - Red
ps. we currently have a lot of business that we're getting offline, and a smaller extent off craigslists/youtube, but I really want to get our online presence strong. From the 6-7 youtube vids we have ranked, we get about 3-4 calls a month. From craigslist, we get about 6-10 calls a month, posting around 3 ads a day. I'm just not sure what our main focus should be. I feel like if we can't grab the top 3 spots on google, we need to start doing something different.
I like youtube because its easy to rank. So I'm thinking we can get 50-60 videos ranked on youtube to up our youtube traffic.
Then we can work more intensly on facebook... or maybe start getting citations for our google plus page.
How do you guys figure this stuff out? We have limited resources, and are trying to gain maximum results.
