Service Areas vs Business Location

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Google wants to know whether your business serves customers at their locations or not. If your business provides services, such as delivery or home repair, to locations in certain areas, you should choose service areas under Google Places’ “Service Areas and Location Setting”. Then, you have two options: “Select how your service area will be specified, either through a distance from a location point, or through a list of locations (towns, zip codes, etc.)” I believe there are some issues with the option to select area by radius, so choose “List of areas served”, and list all of cities and zip codes that you actually serves.

Page Speed and SEO

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

Google has publicly announced that the time it takes for your web pages to load will be a factor in your ranking. In another word, site speed has became one of Google search ranking algorithms. There is an interesting SEO news that Google is incorporating site speed as one of the over 200 signals that we use in determining search rankings. Before choosing a web host for your web site, be sure that clients using their hosting solutions have fast web sites. Some web hosting companies are over-burdened, making the web site of all their clients load slowly. Make sure to optimize your flash files if you use flash animation in your website.
