Does the method still works?. I have attempted it and my site still not index.

Yes this method works really well, if it does not index change the content because that’s the reason.

Hey Nick, when doing this strategy with Google Sites, is it advisable by you that we add in the Phone Number (of the business) in the Page’s Title or just leave it out (with only the Local Keyword Phrase we’re trying to rank for in the title)?

For instance:

“Local Keyword in City, State – (XXX)XXX-XXXX”

or just leave it like this:

“Local Keyword in City, State” (without the phone number in the Title tags)



Yes it’s good to add in your NAP citations πŸ™‚

I’m still waiting on the replies to those two e-mails I sent you on March 7th, LOL :p!

Check your “spam” folder, just in case…


Ok we will take a look πŸ™‚

Hey Nick, it’s been 2 weeks and 1 day now (as far as waiting on a reply from you or Caroline), LOL…


Hi Josh, just been a bit busy but we will get to you soon πŸ™‚ sorry for the wait.

Nick I did this for my flower shop and I am now ranked top for my local search term. Never thought it would work because it was so easy to do, thank you very much I now consider myself a local seo expert too.

Thanks for the feedback Helen, this strategy works to rank local keywords, if you don’t get movement after the first run then do it again and you will hit the top. Most local search terms are easy to rank top for so in most cases just one hit of this will work.

With this local seo strategy, are we able to also rank in google’s “local 3 pack”? or is that a completely different topic? Any insights into this, would be much appreciated. thanks.

Yes it will help you get into Google local 3 pack. Any NAP citations and Google MAP embeds like this will help you, just make sure you keep your address and everything consistent. To get in the local pack you need backlinks too just like these, the more local citations you get the better your chance is of getting into this local section, boosting your Google reviews every now and again works well too, you can get Google reviews in our store here.

Hi Nick,
is it essential to have the keyword in the domain for local seo? For example, if we are trying to rank for “plastic surgery” in “instanbul”, then would we set up a domain for http://www.instanbulplasticsurgery.com? I have seen this format in some google’s local 3 pack.

it’s not essential to have the local keywords in the domain name. We rank many clients for local search terms that have branded domains, in the long run branded domains are better. People are still using exact match domains, at the end of the day it will always come down to your content and backlink strategy.

Thanks for this post. Instead of long tail keywords, I want o rank for more competitive keywords like coupon, online training, etc. Can you please share some tips….

Yes you need to check competitors backlinks. Then set up a niche related private blog network leaving zero footprints done over time. This is guaranteed to work if done right.

Hi Nick, thank you for this I have a Bakery that I am struggling to rank for local keywords. I will try this today, just what I needed.

Let me know how it goes. If you need any help just let me know.

What an amazing strategy you have here Nick, thank you for sharing. I set up my Google site yesterday for my local keyword and it is ranked first page today. I didn’t expect to get a first page ranking over night, never seen this before I am so happy. So glad I have found your website, I had nothing before this.

Yes these Google Sites index fast and because they have much authority then will rank first page quickly for long tail local search terms as shown in the post.
