Proven SEO Affiliate Marketing Strategy: Offline Local Business SEO Results Post Google Updates

 In S E O

google rankingLately I have been approached by a few offline businesses in the Los Angeles area for local SEO work, to build and to optimize their new sites for higher ranking in the search engines results pages (SERP).

I define my SEO rates based on competition and on competitive search terms. I really do not like the idea of working for small businesses so i came up with a new web development and SEO contract based on affiliate marketing principals which rocks.

I will create a new website, optimized it for higher ranking in the search engines for local searches and will get up to 20% from each transaction generated during six months period. I knew it might be hard to track each transaction though I could easily track the website performance, but I wouldn’t do it if I do not trust the business owner, anyways, I will never work with someone I can not trust.

I will not list here all the SEO process which starts with keyword research using my favorite keyword research tool – Market Samurai etc., but I will list the most important factors to achieve higher ranking in the search engines results pages post Google’s updates for local business in 3 to 6 weeks time.

So to start with the SEO process, I did what every experienced SEO’ers would do and that is to have optimized website structure, pages, categories, inner pages and unique content with reasonable keyword density (not so important anymore), each one is optimized for one top keyword and LSI keywrods (Latent Semantic Indexing).

Latent Semantic Indexing became an important factor in the SEO process and it is the discovery process for finding related and relative search terms and keywords phrases. LSI is a mathematical equation that will fold words into a matrix for analysis that will draw out semantically related terms. This equation relies heavily on the context in which any given word is used.

I built the site on WordPress platform, so while creating the website pages, categories or inner pages, I set up the permalinks to %postname%, so the pages or posts will have my desired links using the site’s keywords, and while naming the pages, I am adding AREA-CITY or even AREA-CITY-STATE to the “slug” especially to the contact page.

I am using SEO Ultimate plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/seo-ultimate/

..And in the SEO plugin’s settings, I am doing the same, adding AREA-CITY or even AREA-CITY-STATE for the Meta Titles, Meta Descriptions and Meta Keywords for the home page, each inner page and posts.

http://www.DOMAINNAME.com/Category

*Slug would be:

  • http://www.DOMAINNAME.com/Category/[AREA-CITY or even COUNTRY]
  • http://www.DOMAINNAME.com/Category/SubCategory/[AREA-CITY or even COUNTRY]

 

*Meta Title

Home page and Inner pages titles would be..

  • Title and Add [AREA-CITY-STATE-COUNRTY]

 

*Meta Description

Home page and Inner pages descriptions

  • Description and add [In AREA-CITY-STATE-COUNRTY]

 

*Meta Keywords

Homepage and Inner pages Meta Keywords

  • Keywords and Add [AREA-CITY-STATE-COUNRTY]

 

*Code Inserter

In the Code Inserter setting in the SEO Ultimate plugin I am adding the Dublin Core meta tags.

The most common metadata elements used by Dublin Core listed below but you can add more for local businesses:
