We recently contributed to a blog about Google's new "Pigeon" algorithm update, a major local algorithm change rolled out July 24 affecting Google Maps and local Google search results. Now that the dust has settled, local SEO practitioners can focus on the strategy and tools to prepare for the next inevitable algorithm shake-up. continue reading

Accurate tracking, measurement, and reporting is mission critical for local SEO marketers. Brands have a massive amount of local and organic search data available to them (especially those with multiple locations), but not all data is created equal.

When asked to rate their biggest challenges with managing digital media for their business, 47% of local business owners said they don’t have enough knowledge or expertise; 43% said they don’t have enough time; and 26% said they don’t have enough resources, according to a Local Search Association/Thrive Analytics survey conducted earlier this year.   continue reading

… AND WHY CONTROLLING YOUR MESSAGE IS IMPORTANT

What are widely (among my friend groups) considered the world’s ugliest shoes were sold with an assumption that we are all familiar with from the paleo, gluten free and now barefoot running trends?   Early man had it right, and all this technology is just getting in our way.

Social media citySocial media has changed the face of word-of-mouth marketing, providing everyday people with massive platforms for sharing their opinions about businesses online. These so-called “influencers,” who’ve been loosely defined as consumers who are able to mobilize opinions and create reactions when talking about specific topics, can have a major impact on a local merchant’s online reputation. continue reading
The_Colbert_Report Twitter activism has been getting a lot of press as of late, particularly related to the #BringBackOurGirls trend advocating for intervention to rescue the young women kidnapped in Chibok, Nigeria just weeks ago.
