I want to quickly tell you about Google citations you might have already heard about Google back linked from your web sites. Especially local business web sites don’t have to be but mostly used for local businesses. Well, not the business side. It’s harder for them to get links anyway. But it’s especially hard in the beginning and we’ll take patients. Are there mentions of your business online without actually the backlinks and citations?
So just to mention the right way to make a citation is your name or your business name phone number. You are l and you’re asking me just you know obviously it’s not a hyperlink right. Because if this was a hyperlink it would be called a Backland but since it doesn’t have a hyperlink.
It’s called the citation. Basically a mention and Google use it. It used to use it more now uses it for news sites mostly because it doesn’t have a lot of information about your site. It has to resort to using these mentions later when you make your site more authoritative and really compete.
Insert drinking is going to talk about you know it’s going to we’re going to be important is like not these mentions Nabby’s citations but actual backlinks. Yea that’s what’s really going to get you to the promised land of Google search. But in the beginning, you got to get these how do you get this. It’s actually easy.
Some companies might contact you and say hey we got a service we’re going to create a whole bunch of stations for you don’t even need it. You can just create a ton of Web sites right to create them all kinds of local service websites. Yelp Yellow Pages thought that Angie’s List City search wherever there’s a ton of these local aggregator sites and of course you have the actual social media sites right.
Like you know your Facebook page or Facebook group your Twitter account all those things. Now a lot of times it’s going to be a hyperlink there. But you still want to be in your company in tweets and all that stuff so an update.
So that’s kind of how you are when you’re in business when your business starts when you first open Especially if it’s local then you want to do these hyperlinks. Now some people will say like they will help you long term.
No, it’s not true long term to really rank you. You’re going to back alleys. But in the beginning hyperlinks so, in the beginning, the stations that’s what you want
