How to Gain a Positively Unfair Advantage in Local Search Results
“After nearly 25 years of working with local service businesses on their website and search marketing I get it…” – Roland Lacey
You’re thinking about:
- Getting the phone to ring consistently.
- Having enough business to keep everybody working.
- Increasing business year over year.
- Appearing at the top of searches your prospects are doing.
… probably in about that order.
You generally know what Search Engine Marketing is but:
- You get dozens of calls a week from so-called SEO companies to help you claim your Google Business record. Some even claim to BE Google.
- You get even more emails making the same vague claims. Mostly from overseas.
- Your web designer made a nice site but really doesn’t get Search Engine optimization.
- You suspect that it is probably expensive to get done right.
You’re probably less aware that:
- Google keeps moving the goalpost by introducing new ad types that push your listings down.
- A HUGE chunk of the traffic finds you first not on your website but on your Google My Business Record.
- Optimizing for Google can increase the power of everything else you do online.
Have you heard of the 80/20 Rule?

- If you have one but it’s not up to date, you’re hurting yourself.
- If you have one and it’s inaccurate information, then you’re really sinking yourself as far as visibility to Google.

Wondering how YOUR business stacks up?
