For a lot of businesses in highly competitive niches, to get page one rankings for any pages, posts or videos, they will need 100% on-page seo plus social signals and reviews but most importantly, high quality back-links and citations. However – for local business websites it is really a lot less hassle!
It is pretty vital to have both a Google friendly responsive website and https SSL security or you will be penalised by Google for not having either, even if you have great content.
In the real world, there will always be pages and sites that cannot achieve page one for many different reasons, particularly if you chase after the really high volume keywords that everyone wants to rank for. (Even these can be achieved with a big enough budget.) But if you are realistic enough to understand that traffic and rankings can come from having quality content, a responsive website with SSL security and good on page optimisation then there will always be great local keywords to target.
In addition to the citation back-links from the highest authority and most relevant sources, we also include some built from within Googles own properties. This means that there is no danger of them ever being deleted or de-indexed.
The answer in short is yes.
We all know about making a Google Plus business page and we all get a back-link from there that is pretty powerful, but not good enough by itself. So imagine a whole host of different Google back-links in a super-powerful targeted funnel that all ends up pointing to your website. All of that ranking power will pass to your website, and combined with the best and most beneficial back-links from relevant local websites will serve to outrank your competition.
You can have a website or a page ranking very high or perhaps even better, a YouTube video linking back to your services or products. Find your pages ranking even higher in the search results than you ever had before and get leads and enquiries from under the noses of your competition,
…Google approved back-links to rank you higher than your local competitors, but in addition to these powerful links we will also create by hand a number of high quality back-links from relevant authority websites that will compliment them very nicely.
Using all these Google approved back-linking strategies really is a powerful boost for your local keywords and mostly businesses end up in the top 3 of page one (in the Google places results) for several of their best keywords. This kind of ranking tends to pull in the quality buyer traffic and is proved inside your Google analytics account.
