    Cool Local SEO Tasks


    Hello,

    I have recently engaged the services of a local company for Local Search Optimisation.

    Being the sceptic that I am I have asked them to provide me with a breakdown of the tasks completed (despite not knowing if what they are doing is right or wrong).

    I am hoping someone out there will be able to tell me their thoughts on what I should expect in the first month a company takes on the Local Search for my company?

    this is the list of what I was told they have completed.

    Google My Business Set Up - Done
    Google My Business Optimisation - Done
    Create brief for copy - Done
    Citation brief
    Website Sitemaps - Done
    Website Robots.txt Best Practice Set Up In progress
    Website Location Page Optimisation - description, map, hours, gps Client feedback required
    Website Structured Data Creation and Implementation (schema) Client feedback required
    Monthly Reporting - Done


    what do you all think?
    have they not done anything you feel is imperative?

    hope to hear from someone soon.

    Hi Chedders, thank you for your reply.

    my expectations are that whatever the tasks they are executing will bring me up higher on local listings (google maps results mostly). as well as expecting them to be doing a fair amount of work for the money I am paying. at the moment I am paying $980 a month.

    for 980 a month what do you feel would be a fair amount of work?
