I'm continually trying to improve my small local business ranking for my 2 main search terms on a small budget.
"driving school suburb" and "driving lessons suburb"
Thanks to seochat members I've made lots of modifications to my site and gone from nothing to page 3 (sometimes page 2) in web results and solid in local results so I'm making lots of progress.
Lately, big directory sites are showing a stronger presence in page 1 serps. Is it possible for a small business with a simple site to compete?
Should I give up fighting and try ranking higher on the main directory sites to get a gig on THEIR page 1 listing?
It almost feels like google algorithm has started rewarding directory sites for previously punishable offences.
After all, a directory is purely built on keyword stuffing and lack of content.
