  1. Where can I find someone to help me evaluate my GMB listing? I literally can’t figure out if it is suspended or not. TIA!

  2. Please sir I have done all you said , I’m getting frustrated… The name of my business is Prince Williams media … Please what I’m doing wrong 😭 why can’t I rank top 3

  3. This is one heck of a SEO masterclass! From meta descriptions to NAPs, you don’t miss! Thanks a lot for this.

  4. One answer I can’t find.
    I have a service based business and live in a small town 20 miles NW of Columbus, Ohio. I only want to travel 30 miles at most, which covers half of Columbus.
    Should I mention my town, Columbus, or one of the main suburbs on the NW side to rank in the areas I mainly work?

  5. Amazing content as usual. I have a question about our website, we are a local business and looking to make also online sales to do click & collect etc, but I don’t want my website to look too much like a proper e-commerce website, impersonal, I would like customer to still understand we are also local and small business, does that make sense? Any idea?

    1. Hi Angie. Yes it does. I would create a dedicated section on the site for “click and collect” and push it as a service on the home page

  6. Hey Luc, very insightful guide as always. Your vids always provide clear, succinct and actionable tasks to improve SEO. You also give great free tools which really helps. Been following you for years now and you’re still my favorite SEO guide. Thank you 🙏

    1. A retargeting pixel is a small piece of code you put on your website that runs when a page is loaded and makes note of who visited each page of your site. Companies like Google and Facebook offer retargeting pixels that you can add to your website so when you run an ads campaign on their platform you can display the ads only to the people who have visited your site

  7. Could you do video on Google Local Service vs P P C which one will give you better
    return for service type business
    You have great video 👍

  8. Man this is the best Youtube channel out there. I can not thank you enough, planning to eventually be in touch for a personal consolation,, what value you offer !!

  9. Quick question on NAP I don’t actually use an address just a city this is on the footer of the website. should I switch that to an address,, however after checking what citations I have ,I can see my address on the one I checked…….. so should I should change the footer of my website to match the addresses my citations I am thinking? is that correct

    1. I would change it so it is consistent with the citations unless you don’t want anyone to know what your exact address is

  10. Why would changing the URL lf an existing page be more harmful than be beneficial? Does it depend on the traffic the original URL is getting?

    1. Hi rebecca. If your page is already getting traffic then I wouldn’t change it. If not feel free to change it and don’t forget to implement a 301 redirect from old to new

  11. Dear Luc, thank you for helpful professional lesson! I just wonder whether it will help if I ask someone in fiverr to help me building up the external back-link? Is there anything I should be aware to prevent the problem? Many thanks!!

    1. Fiverr is full of scammers who will likely promise to build 100’s of backlinks very cheaply. Avoid like the plague. If you are going down that path try finding a reputable agency. It’s not cheap. Alternatively you can do it yourself.
