Google Placement, Page one, high ranking
Company owners that wish to join the iphone and ipad revolution need to see their companies better represented on the google search engine rankings. Google, yahoo and bing local listings are also critical, down to the business address and the phone number. Tracking numbers are a really bad idea for web-sites, as ths interferes with search engine quality scoring.
Search engines will recognize how wide-spread a business phone number is on the internet, on blogs, websites, and just community boards where consumers recommend trusted companies to one another. If you don't make your phone number part of your quality score strategy, you don't have the correct strategy.

- Google Plus One
- Angie's List
We see businesses with websites that are rarely found and never through an internet search. Business managers search for information as to how they can make their site more visible and often respond to the promises of lead generator companies that disguise themselves as SEO companies. One firm we know of sets up listings of the above type with a tracking phone number, for a small monthly fee. This is really a bad idea, although it is very popular with managers seeking a quick fix.

Stop trying to stuff Google with multiple local listings, it won't work. Google has been converting and integrating their local listings with Plus to create a reliable and verifiable collection of local listings. Their goal is to cut down on internet spam, enhance their social media presence and still offer legitmate local businesses the chance to be a part of the local listing scene on google. As part of their effort to to fight spam they are taking a serious look at businesses and in doing so they have demoted many local listings where they detect that the business may be trying to promote themselves in a less than entirely honest way. Here are some things we think they use as red flags;
- Multiple listings for the same web site or phone number
- Local listings that are in a purely residential neighborhood
- Local listings that are nothing but a drop box or mailbox store
- Multiple businesses listed at the same address
- review that come from the same ip, or come in chronological clumps
This is not to say that we don't still see listings with decent rankings that clearly violate some of these criteria. However, their time will come, as google is continuously combing the local listing database for these things.
If you are not a retail location, don't list as one
You are much less likely to get penalized for listing your business in a residential neighborhood if you ckick the box that says "Do not show my business address on my Maps listing." Most SEO's will say that your rankings will be hurt by clicking that box, however, when google gets around to penalizing you, it will be a far worse ordeal than most any other penalty on the above list. Additionally, you can encounter trouble with local zoning, your Homeowner's Association, village and county code enforcement and even encounter legal liabilities pertaining to your business licensing requirements by showing your location in a residentially zoned area.

Don't click on these emails, this is a link to a virus.
Phishing is a term for phony fishing schemes to see if they can get some sucker to infect their computer by visiting a website that they would not otherwise visit. In fact, google and other search engines don't show these websites with malware in search results, or show them with a warning that you visit the site at your peril. However, through your email if they can get through your spam filter there is little to prevent many users from getting the virus. Norton antivirus generally stops these things, but the best thing to do when you see an email that comes out of nowhere but evokes an emotional respones is to hold down the shift key and press delete, permanently deleting the email from your system.
