How Do I Get On The First Page Of Google In My City?
I am asked this every day...

So let's focus on the basics first.

#1- A modern website which is fully responsive (Responsive: simply means that it's formatted correctly when viewing on a mobile device.)
#2- Your website is fully SEO Optimized (SEO/Search Engine Optimization: simply means that you have fully optimized all 300 aspects of your digital presentation to the top search engines desires. Yeah simply huh? Ha.)
#3- Social Media Linking connecting your social accounts to your website and vice versa.
#4- Link Building which comes down to you linking your website to other websites of relevance, them linking to you and then creating links of relevance on your website which ideally include the keywords you are focusing on.


In all reality, it's not hard for you to rank on the first page of Google, Bing or Yahoo. There is a huge difference in ranking "Landscaper Pasadena MD" and ranking "Landscaper Baltimore" and the reasoning for the difference is Volume. Yes Volume, the term "Landscaper Pasadena MD" is probably searched 1% of the qty. which is searching "Landscaper Baltimore" and as you can guess this Volume is usually very close with The Population.

So... Get your website up, create quality, relevant content which is filled with your top focal point keywords and then create quality page titles, meta tags, user-friendly URL's and then submit that sitemap to Google Webmasters then Google your company. You will find yourself in less volume markets within 24 hours. Maybe not on page #1 but 2 or 3. Have a question? Feel free to ask below.
