Local Search – Google Boost

Back in December I blogged about the importance of local search, and promised a follow up post about Google’s new local ad product – Google Boost. Boost was initially launched in selected U.S. cities in October 2010 and rolled out across the rest of the U.S. in late January. It is now being [...]

Adwords and Facebook ads: Go tweak crazy

It seems to have been a really rather busy few weeks for Google, withhem testing new appearances and variations of PPC advert display all over the place. Here’s a summary of the changes we’ve seen popping up recently:

Google’s Local Listings: A New Hybrid Algorithm

This one has been on our to-do list since the day we re-launched our website back in March but we have finally added a page about our specific Edinburgh search engine optimisation services for those looking for assistance within the confines of our pleasant capital.

So does this make the addition of this page ‘unethical’?

A Curious set of Circumstances: Google Places

Morale of the story: Claim your correct Google Places listing or you risk losing business (or at the very least annoying your customers). Also – think about some PPC advertising on your brand terms!

Link: Employee Profile Pages to Boost Local Search Results

I read a good article (Search Engine Land) on optimising your website for local search by creating individual employee pages. Basically the view is to create separate pages for your employees and include info such as contact details, links to blog posts and LinkedIn profiles. I think its definitely something worth pursuing as [...]
