In Hump Day Hangouts episode 247, one participant asked if local SEO is dead.
The exact question was:
Hey guys loving your hangouts thanks so much! But I'm a bit worried is local seo dead now? in the previous humpdays you said to stay out of the GMB and even client gmbs are too risky to edit now and that organic rankings are mostly just all directory sites now. so if we cant confidently approach a client and offer to edit and optimize their GMB to rank it and cant rank their own site either cause its only directory sites ranking, what is their left to do? what are we suppose to sell them? just PPC services? If so, can the battleplan help me with that? thanks!
