Local SEO Training Program with Automated Local SEO Template System
How the Google Local Algo Works

BLENDED ALGO vs old PACK ALGO – The old “Pack” algo seldom shows any more and when it does, it’s typically for the less popular, lower competition keywords.

The “Pack” algo uses ranking factors that have to do with optimizing the Place page itself, number of citations, # of reviews and proximity to centroid. (And all the other things I teach in the Advanced Google+ Local course.) It has little to do with the web site itself.

However the “BLENDED” algo is what shows up for most CORE keywords like "City Dentist" or "City Plumber". The “Blended Algo” is 90% IMO based on ORGANIC ranking factors. This explains why you can see an empty unclaimed Place page ranking #1. It’s all about organic factors. And good, smart Local ON-SITE SEO can make all the difference!

That’s what this course is about. Local ON-SITE SEO - which is where you can typically move the needle the most on local sites for CORE keywords – the ones that count!

What I teach is a total strategy and formula for Local SEO that works! I teach showing real world examples of clients I’ve gotten top rankings for. I give you the exact formula – and teach very advanced on-site SEO techniques, that I’ve never seen anyone else share.

Average results I achieved for my Dentists and time-frame - For core KWs normally I would get an average 10 spot jump within a month after doing the Local SEO strategy I teach.


.:. My complete Local SEO strategy and how to do it and why it works

.:. Discover my “secret sauce” Local SEO technique that boosts ranking that no one knows about

.:. Find out how to dominate the SERPs and get your clients DOUBLE page one rankings

.:. Learn by seeing real examples, real clients, real good rankings

.:. My formula includes 7 types of "local hooks" (but don’t need to learn all the different types of coding because the Automated Template System will do most of work for you.)

.:. Find out how to set up multi-location businesses to avoid merges and ranking problems

– I teach a special secret sauce tip that Google LOVES for local. NO one else teaches this or talks about it and hardly anyone knows about it. Trust me when I tell you if you know this YOUR clients will have an edge – so we don’t want everyone learning to do this and abusing it.

I’ll show you numerous examples of sites that rank #1 and my Dental site that has a DOUBLE #1, largely due to this technique. TOTALLY white hat and Google loves it. It’s just that no one thinks to do it. It’s under non-disclosure and can’t be sold or shared publicly. Because if every Tom, Dick and spammer started doing it, then Google would tweak the algo and it would cease to work. PLUS if all your competitors started using it, you’d lose this special advantage.

Advanced Ranking Tip #2 - How to get double page one rankings. (In organic AND in blended)

Will share one of my clients that I was able to get a DOUBLE #1 for. #1 organic plus the #1 (A spot) in local and will show you exactly how I did it.

Advanced Ranking Tip #3 - Special Techniques for embedding the Google map on your client site. So hot that – well that’s all I’ll say about it right now.

Advanced Ranking Tip #4 – How to Get Sites Spidered and Re-Indexed and RANKING Faster

I’ll share some tricks to get client sites spidered and re-indexed faster because that’s a problem for local sites. Many of these small biz sites just don’t get much traffic, therefore may not be spidered very often. So if I’m going to go to all the trouble to optimize the site, I’m not going to sit back and hope/wait for the Google spider. I force feed her the changes to get my client’s site re-indexed faster. I’ve been doing this for years and have a site that ranks #1 out of 300 million competing.

I teach 7 types of "local hooks". To learn to code them all, get them in the right place, tweak everything just right can take 2 – 3 hours. But with my Automated Template Systems you don’t need to learn all the different types of coding because IT will do most of work for you. Boils 2 – 3 hour of work down into 20 minutes. AND my pros love that it helps eliminates mistakes too!

PROS I've trained that have been doing SEO for 11 years, have said things like:

“WOW why didn’t I ever think to do this for my team? This saves so much time,
so many headaches and repeat tweaking - AND eliminates the chance of mistakes.”

Seating extremely limited and I only do one course per month.

Please contact me to request complete details including time, price and requirements for attending.
(Be sure to specify if you want G+ Local Training or Local SEO/Local Hooks Training)

PS I also offer Advanced Google G+ Local Training. That post has complete details about that course.
