4 Tips For Immediately Getting Leads from Google

Are you a business owner who's struggling to grow your business? If you are, I'd like to give you 4 tips that will help to start immediately growing your business.

I'm Jeremy Ashburn with PushLeads. I've been doing SEO for the past 15 years and had my own SEO Agency the past 5 years. I just helped a local plumbing company go from 30 calls per month to 120+ calls per month by doing these 4 tips.

These 4 tips are totally easy to implement, even if you've never done any type of web design or SEO before.

Let's jump right in!

Tip #1 - Find Keywords

Place Keywords on your Homepage

The First thing that you want to do is find the best search phrases or keywords for your business. Google has a free tool called the Google Keyword Planner that helps you find the best keywords for your business. Go there, sign up, and start searching for keywords.

What you want to do in this first step is to pick out about 10-20 good keywords for the product or service that you're offering. Try to pick keywords that describe exactly what your business does, the services you're offering, or the products that you're selling.

When signing up to use the Google Keyword Planner, you'll be required to add your payment info. This won't be an issue because you can pause your ads after the sign up and you won't be charged.

Tip #2 - Place Keywords on Your Homepage

Now that you've found your 10-20 great keywords, next you want place them on the homepage of your website. In this step, you'll be adding keywords here and there within headings and within the content, right on your hompage.  Doing this tells Google that you are interested in showing up for those searches in GOogle

I've found that the best way to do this is to copy your homepage content into a word document so you can more easily work on getting your keywords into the content. Edit the content so that you "sprinkle" keywords here and there within your site content.

Now, do youself a favor and hire a writer to proof what you've written. This will ensure that the content reads well for prospective visitors who are coming to your site.

When done, just email the document to your web designer and ask them to replace the homepage content with the article that you've written.

These Four Tips will Help You Grow Your Business with SEO

Tip #3 - Do Regular Blog Posts

Do Regular Blog Posts Will Help Your SEO

Since working with local businesses in Asheville and surrounding areas for the past three years, I've found that Google takes your business seriously if you publish Four Blog posts every month. Regular Blogging makes such a huge difference.

How do I know this?

A few years back, I was doing SEO for two different photographers. The first photographer published 5 and 7 blog posts every month while the second photographer published nothing.

Guess what happened? The photographer who published blog posts started getting 2, 4 and 8 new leads from Google every month. These leads turned into 2K, 5K, and 10K of new business. The second photographer who published nothing got nothing. No leads or action from Google.

This spoke to me about the importance of doing Regular Blog Posts as part of your SEO strategy. My current opinion is that Google decides that regular blogging is half of the SEO equation.

Tip #4 - Track Your Results

Lastly, you'll need to track your results. There's a great tool called Ranking Coach that will help you find out where your business shows up for local Searches in your city. The great thing about this tool is that for only $30 per month, it shows where you business is in Google for search phrases. You can also track your rankings in your local city, other nearby cities, and/or across the US.

As you do the previous steps, you'll start seeing your business show up at the top of Google for searches. This will lead to bringing your business more traffic, more leads, and more business from Google.

Ready to Grow Your Business?

If you're serious about wanting to grow your business, I'd like to invite you to do a website report. This report will show you how strong you are doing in Google and areas you need to improve. It's totally free. Just fill out the details below and we'll get you going.

Hey guys. I’m Jeremy Ashburn with Pushleads. Today I’m just answering common SEO questions that clients typically ask me. I’ve been SEO the last 15 years and have my own SEO agency the last five years.

One of the questions that comes up, either directly where they ask me, or indirectly people wonder this when they’re out there just on Google and other search engines, and they wonder this question, “Why does Google matter.” A lot of us know that Google is a really big search engine and it’s been out there for a while and has a good reputation

Search Engines, Back Then

I remember actually way back in 1999 going to school at UNC Charlotte and I was studying graphic design, and there was a Mac lab of about 30 computers. They were all Macs. I remember thinking, “Hey, I want to try different search engines and see which ones deliver results.” I remember actually thinking, “I’m going to try AltaVista that was one of them. Yahoo of course was around then, Ask Geeves, and then there was Google. I remember trying different search engines and realizing that Google just delivered better results. The results were better. They just were better than Yahoo or AltaVista. Ask Geeves that was completely off the mark. I remember thinking, “You know, Google just really does a good job at delivering results that people are looking for, and I remember changing all the search engines from whatever it was to Google because I was thinking, “You know what, Google delivers a better experience for people out there.

Really, what was true 17 years ago, and it’s also true today. Google just delivers a better experience. And because of that Google is the number one search engine out there. Google and YouTube are both the number one search engines out there. Google is really big at delivering results that people are looking for, right when they’re looking for them.

I really love Google because of that. I also enjoy helping businesses be visible and grow at the top of Google. That’s what we do at Pushleads; we help local businesses grow by making little inside tweaks on their website and outside tweaks on their website so that over time all of this adds up to your business streaming at the top of Google.

The way it works is if you’re at the top of Google then people are finding you. Let’s just say that you’re a plumber in Newark New Jersey, and someone’s searching for plumbers in Newark, New Jersey. If they can find you at the top, if there are a thousand people a month looking for that term, then around 400 people will click to your website just from that term every month. 400 people. Of those 400 people, maybe 50 will call you, maybe 30, but still that’s 30 or 50 new calls that you’re getting every month at a local business that you weren’t getting.

Why Being at Top of Google Matters
