Linda Buquet Demonstrates Organic/Local Correlation And Offers Tool

Today is a busy one for me, but I just had to take a couple of minutes out of my schedule to point the way to this awesome post by my friend and colleague, Linda Buquet, of Catalyst eMarketing.

Since the rollout of the blended local/organic SERPs last October, all of the local SEOs I chat with have opined that organic factors are packing the heaviest punch in blended rankings. Linda’s piece shares her own considerable knowledge in this regard and even contains her own tool for comparing the old Organic results with the new blended one. Linda also breaks down what she sees as the main ranking factors for the non-blended 7-pack results. If you’ve not yet read the article, dash on over there. I consider this one of the must-read Local features of 2011.

Time and again, I see that my own Local clients were #1 prior to the rollout of the blended results have maintained that top position in the newer SERPs. And what does this mean? It means that you – my incoming client – are likely to benefit considerably from Solas Web Design’s methods of building strong, optimized, usable websites for great small businesses. If blended results are Google’s display of choice for your industry and geography, I’m ready to show you how my firm builds sites that speak to Google’s needs, as well as always putting the human user (your customer) first!

Kudos to Linda Buquet on her truly noteworthy post!

    Wow Miriam, thanks SO much for the kind words. Coming from you, someone who I consider to be a leading industry pro, that was high praise.

    @Miriam…always gratifying for me at least to see that others too notice Linda’s depth of knowledge and research….I read that post the day it was out and I would urge ALL others reading this piece to do just that too, eh!

    Hey Jim,
    Nice to see you here, as always. I’ve had the chance to get to know Linda and some of her work this past year and I have become her fan. I find her insights so educational and she is just a really nice person, too!

    Have a good day, eh!
