Strategies that Help to Boost
Ranks in Google Places
(1) Content Submission to Niche Sites and Blogs.
You can create content yourself, or we do it for you – doesn’t matter – the most important is that you get your texts published on lots of sites and blogs inside and outside Free Traffic System.
Obviously, you use citations of business listings in the text. This is very important – read about citations for Google places SEO in this post.
As a platform for content blasts and building citations and backlinks we most often use Double Push, because it gives the WIDEST submission coverage on the blogs.
If you want to be more niche specific and quality specific with your content submissions, then I recommend niche blogs inside Free Traffic System that have good traffic statistics. With this approach you do not try to “cover as many blogs as possible,” and you don’t get overnight results, but you invest into the long-term value of such publications. Because 5 articles with citations of your Google business listing on 5 good reputable blogs can do more value than 500 articles published on blogs that harvest the content from all possible sources.
(2) Social bookmarks.
Free Traffic System has a good bridge to reputable social bookmarks done by people via their real accounts.
It’s not quick, because accounts are real and we do not control how quickly they will submit. But they submit for sure. And in average you can count on 10-30 links per day.
And it works 100% on autopilot for you. With detailed reports in the end.
We can use your business address (citations) in the descriptions of these bookmarks and this will give you backlinks + citations of your Google places listing get published, Google sees them, indexes, and it pushes your ranks in Google places.
Moreover, social bookmarks the way we deliver them have a very good SEO+social marketing “side effect” – you accumulate Google+ and Twitter mentionings. Also on real accounts of real people. On autopilot. This “side effect” goes very slowly, you don’t get bunches of Google+ and Tweets, but this is even better – because it looks more natural.
You can see social bookmarks offered here, we want to add it to the package of Google places as well. Your opinion needed.
(3) Video Marketing.
We create videos and submit them. In the videos and their titles, descriptions, tags we do the magic with Google places optimization and submit the videos.
We don’t recommend blasting videos to many accounts at once, this is spammy. Instead have them on your own account and push your videos with social bookmarks, to make them more reputable.
The current prices for video marketing are here. But for Google places we will shortly reshape the price packages to make them more available.
So, right now we need your feedback on video marketing inside the Google places toolkit.
(4) Forum Marketing.
Real people will run real accounts on the forums in your niche. Posts will come with signatures that will have links and citations.
Currently we run forum marketing like this. A real person is sitting on 5 niche forums and doing forum posts with your backlink in forum sig. This is about 5 posts per day, 150 posts on 5 forums per month.
We do not think that you need that much posts for Google places SEO, that is why need your feedback on the numbers in the comments. And the price will get smaller proportionally.
