Tampa SEO Google News – Last month Google made some major changes to its local search results by only showing the top 3 results instead of 7. It appears Google’s motivation to do this was partially driven by their mobile search improvements. Chances are, if you were showing up number 4 before the change, then it’s probable it hasn’t affected your local search engine traffic much. This may be why Google removed the 7 pack. The truth is, if the top 3 received the majority of traffic, then 4 – 7 positions weren’t generating much traffic anyway.
So if you recently got knocked off of page 1 because you didn’t make the top 3, then I suggest you position yourself as more of a specialist. To dominate a specialized niche in your industry, try to rank for “Emergency Plumber” instead of just plumber, or basement remodeling instead of just “remodeling”. The key to long term success is to not leave anything out. Share your posts on your Social Channels, write great content, and look at expanding on your keyword profile to include many search variations instead of just a few.
So what does this all mean? Well because Google has removed phone numbers and the exact addresses, we noticed that the starred reviews still remain. It’s now more important than ever to focus on obtaining and interacting with good reviews. Strive to get a high volume of REAL reviews, and you’ll stand the test of time!

I met Scott on my boat. I am a charter captain in Tampa, Fl. he asked me some questions about my site and by the end of the day he was set to start my SEO. I have been through many web designers that promised the world and did not deliver, many were too expensive to even get started with, wanting thousands before any results were noticed and nothing was guaranteed.
With SEO services Expert it took less than a week for my site to begin moving,He helped me with my local rankings as well as my organic rankings. I am now almost on page one and after some recent tweaks I will be there. I highly recommend Scott and the team at SEO Services Expert for any business except of course charter captains in Tampa :)
I am also working on a new site with SEO Serveices Expert, its gonna be a big hit thanks to Scott and his team! One big plus, he returns your calls if he does not answer! 5 stars all day long!
