How Do You Come Up With Your SEO Methods?

By April

In episode 305 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked how the team comes up with their SEO methods.

The exact question was:

4) How do you find the methods? Did you see a direction someone took and you enhance it? Or you just get an idea in the head (aka firing lighting bolt out of your ass)? it is hard to get results based on assumptions here (in the seo world). results come after weeks or months.

What SEO Strategy Do You Recommend Apart From Using Geotagged Phone Images And Reviews?

By April

In episode 276 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked what SEO strategy the team recommends apart from using geotagged phone images and reviews.

The exact question was:

Hey guys, my car dealer client has been encouraging me to make use of his staff to help me rank him. I took him up on his offer and got the staff to regularly send geotagged phone images for GMB posts, and even have them uploading showroom pictures to GMB directly through the app. I make sure they send me responses to reviews they get too. My question is, what else can I have them do to help me rank, whether in GMB or elsewhere? I usually have trouble getting this kind of cooperation so I want to make the most of it

By April

 

In Hump Day Hangouts episode 260, one participant asked how to get more traction for a 3k Scholarship program apart from having a landing page, email blast, press release, and 5 college links.

The exact question was:

For one of my clients, we created a 3K ‘scholarship”” program. I made the landing page, had someone scrape university emails and then we reached out to them announcing our program (with hopes of getting placed onto their sites). I did a PR thru Press Advantage as well. We have had about 5 links come in from it from colleges but had hoped for more. Is there anything we can do to get better traction?”

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?

Is YouTube A Good Backlink Source For GMB Since It’s Authoritative And Is Owned By Google?

By April

 

In episode 253 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked if YouTube is a good backlink source for GMB since it's authoritative and is owned by Google.

The exact question was:

Anyway, since YouTube is a Google property with lots of “”authority power””, I'm guessing that it would be a good idea to include it as a backlink source to help a GMB listing rank in the 3-Pack. Is that correct?, . .. and, if so, other than uploading a few niche-related videos to a niche optimized YT channel and including the GMB url in their descriptions, what else, if anything, can you do to use YouTube to help rank a GMB listing?
