    Lightbulb Advice for Local Search Engine Optimisation


    Hi,

    We are an IT company in Lucknow India and providing quality services but unfortunately we are not ranking on top even after following GMB guidelines for years now. We are updating our Business page on regular basis and doing other stuffs like building NAP citations etc but no luck still ranking on 4-5th pages of Google Search result.

    In other side few companies are ranking on top for the services they are dealing with. Do you guys have any solution to get better ranking in Local Search?

    All the service companies I deal with, plumbers, electricians, etc,etc... I have no problem ranking locally.

    Without seeing your site, it will be hard to tell you why you don't rank locally, it would also help to know the keywords you are targeting.

    Care to supply that info?
    Other questions that come to mind are, has your site ever been hit with a Google Penalty? Do you do a lot of link building ? I could play 20 questions, but you get the point.

    Well my website url is: www.youstable.com and we are targeting for the keywords like
    • Website Designer
    • WordPress Developer
    • Web Hosting Company


    similar keywords with the phrase of "in Lucknow"

    And yeah we don't building mass links or something, we believe in organic methods so there is no spamming at all. The only thing we do regularly is posting updates on Social Media and GMB pages.

    You have some major problems...

    1. You have no title tags... they are empty, here is a image of your source code, I stopped checking after I verified this on 6 pages.


    Based on the fact that you have no title tags, you are wasting a significant portion of SEO realestate.

    For some reason your pages are not rendering properly. I suggest you view the source code from one of your pages and you will see what I mean.

    I checked your site with Screaming Frog and Website Auditor... both report you only have a home page, but nothing else. I went so far as to impersonate Google, Bing and Yahoo.... no joy, you have done something to prevent the page from rendering properly.

    This is how your source code looks in Chrome. Notice you have no content , nor any closing body or html tags. I find this most unusual.
    What platform are you using to create pages? Off hand I would say the programmer has broken the site.

    With these types of issues you will not rank for anything sad to say. You will probably have to go over your site design with a fine tooth comb to find the issues...you may be better of with a redesign.

    You have ZERO clue on how to do SEO yet you sell the service on your website? We don't allow your ilk here: Bye bye
