Thanks Joy,

I optimised my homepage for the category web designer. @JoyHawkins @Phil Rozek

Speaking to brightlocal they recommended choosing from the following categories: FYI

"I did a quick check, but could not find a category that would state specifically "Digital Marketing Agency".

I did find these results for "marketing" search terms:
Affiliate Marketing Agency
Agricultural Marketing Agency
E-Mail Marketing Agency
Internet marketing service
Marketing agency
Marketing and Communication Agency
Marketing consultant
Media Marketing Agency
Social Marketing Agency
Telemarketing service
Telephone Marketing Company"

-------------------------------------------------

I was thinking of using the following categories for my business:
Internet marketing service (primary category)
Web designer
Marketing agency
Media Marketing Agency
Social Marketing Agency

I am not sure if there is any data that shows which categories perform best?


Best
Ollie
