Jim Munro: When you check your position, are you using an anonymous browser?
Todd Weise: This. Plus. Define for us “top hit for your niche”. Just because you tested with a keyword doesn’t mean your customers are using that query.
Andrea von Eugen: Sure you aren`t signed in to Google? Also did you check the search volumes beforehand???
David Gizzarelli: it may just be G analytics because my hosting stats are much higher
Paul Thompson: Have to be careful with hosting stats s they also record bot visits.It could well be that Analytics is recording accurately, but traffic is a second-order indicator. Are you getting actual conversions from the site? Phone calls, emails etc
David Gizzarelli: Paul Thompson i get a few emails from my quote form a month. i don’t think any calls. my business site is photos and information. my site is not encrypted
David Gizzarelli: Paul Thompson my business comes from google and yelp, but there is my site right under Yelp
Paul Thompson: Go to your Google Search Console and have a look at your Impressions vs Clicks for your important pages and search terms.If you`re typically showing up under Yelp, you`re going to need to do a really good job with your page Meta Title and Meta Description in order to entice searchers to click on your result instead of Yelp. And of course, optimise the hell out of your Yelp presence so that even if they click there, you`ll still make the sale.
