You are allowed to defend yourself in a court of law but I would not recommend it. You are also allowed to fix your own car but if you don’t know what you’re doing, I wouldn’t. Good local SEO companies are constantly thinking and researching on how to be better. We test, measure and learn while you’re busy running your business. SEO is our business.
Local SEO was similar to the early years of organic SEO. Lame site + bunch of spammy backlinks = profit. In the beginning, Google’s local search was easy to game as there wasn’t much competition. Now, even baby sitters are pulling out all the stops.
- Would I have a chance against a lawyer in a court of law?
- Could I beat 51 year old John McEnroe at tennis (errr probably not)?
- Do I understand the basics of local SEO?
- Can I devote the monthly hours on Local SEO to succeed?
- If I get in trouble (piss off the Google gods) can I find my way back?
The last bullet point is an important one. There are a number of pitfalls that local SEO posses. If you don’t have the experience to appease the Google gods then your Places page can be buried. Google Places spam has given Google a hair trigger. Look even remotely spammy, and you can trigger a manual review. Your top 3 local search rankings that have been bringing you tons of breast augmentation surgeries will vanish. You could disappear for weeks as the Google reviewers are a bit busy.
I can’t speak for all SEOs but I can say that there is one important thing a business should consider. SEO strategists obsess 24 hours per day about beating people that rank in front of them. It’s our full-time job, so we will not stop trying to raise our clients’ rankings.
