Is PO Box Better Than A Temporary Office?

By April

 

In episode 259 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if PO Box is better than a temporary office.

The exact question was:

I had a temp office address for our business. I don't know if someone brought it to google's attention but they canned it with all of the reviews, seo work etc. I now have set up a new one from their home address which i verified but it just is sitting there waiting on review. I saw your post somewhere recently where you liked the pobox better than the temp office. Is there anything to do to move them along from pending? thanks

By April

The exact question was:

hi guys i was talking to a dentist about his seo. he told me his son was doing it but was getting nowhere. I spoke to the son and he told me he bought some gigs on fiver for google sites and drive files. i told the dentist you get what you pay for and that I may be able to help do it properly. Can I go to MGYB and buy a gsite+drive stack for this or is it too late? will the current gsites or “”drive stack”” his son setup interfere with one mgyb would build? I dont think the son will let me delete all the work he had done. thanks

How Would You Expand The Proximity Radius Of A GMB Page And Website Of An Electrician Using The Battle Plan?

By April

 

In episode 259 of the weekly Hump Day Hangouts by Semantic Mastery, one viewer asked how would you expand the proximity radius of GMB page and website of an electrician using the Battle Plan.

The exact question was:

Hi guys. I have an electrician with a GMB and website who wants to expand their reach further than the presumed 10K proximity radius enforced by GMB. Would it be a matter of creating new landing pages for the suburbs/cities they want to expand into and in those pages also describe the services they would like to offer? Then proceed with the usual battle plan strategy to get those new locations to rank. Also, by creating and ranking this new content, would the GMB then start to rank for the new locations, or have I got this wrong?

By April

In episode 259 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if it is okay to use target keywords as top of silo keywords regardless of the number of competing pages.

The exact question was:

in jeffrey smiths bootcamp top of silo keywords have 1million+ competing pages, but in local seo top of silo keywords have no where near 1mil competing pages. can we consider the keywords we want to target as our top of silo keywords regardless of the number of competing pages they have? he also recommends using a sidebar with links but our page design has no sidebar. can we just add navigation links to the bottom of the page instead? thank you
