Thank you very much for your insight Vossy and SEOcourse.
If you wouldn’t mind replying to a few other things regarding feasibility/required SEO
, that would be great!
The domains I have acquired do contain the term “in
”, however I have been gathering results via the Google Keyword Tool and am getting healthy local numbers for terms which include “in
” as a keyword i.e. “business in location
I have also acquired both singular and plural domains i.e. painter
inlocation and painters
inlocation. Whether I can implement this somehow to reinforce presence, I don’t know (I am quite new to this).
I am targeting international locations and the industry I have selected is both lucrative and prevalent.
I have also acquired the relevant international domain extension e.g. “DE (germany)
” as well as the “.COM
”. Once again, whether I can use this to reinforce presence is still unclear to me. I imagine if somebody from a town in Germany enters “maler in brandenburg
” I would think the “.DE
” site would populate foremost, or am I incorrect?
The general business model is not unlike the one you mentioned, the only difference is instead of leasing, the intention is to promote select businesses within the area as a form of bolstered marketing. As such, the only content I initially intended on using was going to be re-directs to a business’s own website and/or their relevant contact information.
I realise this is certainly inadequate, so including info/pages such as pricing per business, supplier/deals (for both painters an clients), relevant consumer information, reviews, business location maps (with functionality such as the “get directions
” tool offered by Google Maps).
Would a site that includes these features rank better?
I am also thinking about link building via creating Linkdin groups specific to industries and approaching individual businesses to join. Is this something that would work? (Once again, amateur here).
Thanks for any info
