Map Pack SEO & Reviews

Description

When a potential customer performs a local search, two organic sections are typically triggered and returned on the search engine results page (SERP). They are the search results and the map results commonly referred to as the Map Pack.

The reason why these three spots are so highly coveted by local business owners is because they stand out from the normal search results and are located at the top of the page just after the paid advertisements. More importantly, they give small & medium-sized businesses an opportunity to compete with national competitors in their area.

What To Expect

According to Moz, to rank in the Map Pack, you need to focus on:
 
My Business Signals: proximity, categories, keywords in business title.
Citation Signals: IYP/aggregator NAP consistency, citation volume.
Review Signals: review quantity, review velocity, review diversity.
 
This service tackles all three activities and while we can’t guarantee rankings (no one can), this gig will put your local service business on the map…literally.

Something to keep in mind is proximity is one of the top three ranking factors for Map Pack rankings. Therefore, we will first focus on ranking your service business in your immediate city or town (10 miles radius around your business address).

Once we secure your spot in the Map Pack for a majority of the zip codes in this area, we will then shift our focus to ranking your service business in the Map Pack for any cities, villages, or towns you service beyond 10 miles.

Note: As the owner of a local service business, we know how busy you are. Therefore all of our growth gigs are specifically designed to be low-touch, meaning there will NOT be a lot of back-and-forth communication between you and us once we get going. Instead, we will set up a dashboard for you that allows you to easily understand where your hard-earned dollars are going and what results are being achieved!

Frequently Asked Questions

You have questions, we have answers.

What’s the difference between map pack and organic SEO?

Map Pack SEO is focused on ranking your business in the map results when a potential customer performs a local search (keyword + location). The advantage to occupating one of the top three spots is your business now occupies prime real estate in the search engine results page (SERP). This means potential customers are more likely to call your business or visit your website directly from your Google My Business listing.

Will you fix on-page SEO issues?

When you purchase a Silverback Stack, you don’t have to worry about on-page SEO issues. Instead, we will optimize all your Titles, Meta Descriptions, Headers, Copy, and Image Alt Tags, attracting more visitors from Google and Bing.

Can you fix my incorrect citation data?

Yes! Our goal is to put you in control of your business’ information everywhere it lives online. As a result, we will fix missing or incorrect citation data on search engines, directories, maps, and apps in near real time.

How soon will I see results?

If you have still have questions, you can chat with sales or call us at (855) 536-7470.

How do I know if the service is working for me or not?

Every month, we’ll send you an easy-to-understand report highlighting your ranking for target keywords, and how those improvements are impacting customer actions (calls, clicks, etc) on Google My Business and Yelp. We’ll also share how many new reviews you’ve received and on which platforms.

My city is very small. Can I target a different city or area?

Yes! If your business is located in a small town but you travel “X” amount of miles for work, we can target different cities, villages, or towns.

One thing to keep in mind though is proximity plays a huge role in Map Pack rankings. Therefore, we will first focus on ranking your service business in your immediate service area (10 miles radius around your business address).

After we accomplish this, we will shift gears and focus on securing your spot in the Map Pack for any cities, towns, or villages you travel to that fall outside of this 10 mile radius. With the Map Pack SEO gig, there is nothing stopping you from winning more customers in your service area!
