In Page SEO Content Writing

Start with the low hanging fruit and then move on to content-driven links.

Low hanging:

  • local listings
  • local directories
  • Program that encourages reviews from customers
  • Reach out to partners to get listings on their sites as a recommended vendor(possible targets for a plumber might be contractors, real estateagents, home inspectors, lawn care companies, plumbing supply companies)
