Glen Burnie Car Dealer SEO Audit
On May 15th, 2017 we ran a lite seo audit for a car dealer in Glen Burnie, MD. Their domain name reflects their brand name and also contains a partial keyword: "auto".
At present they do not have any ranking for the generic search term, "Glen Burnie car dealer". According to Google Adwords, "car dealer" is a three times more popular search phrase vs "auto sales", which is what their home page title keywords target. For the search term "Glen Burnie auto sales" they also have no SERP.
*Curiously, there are no paid advertisers for either of the geo specific search phrases. The estimated cost per click for the two phrase range from $0.65 to $1.34. If nothing else, we recommend this car dealer website initiate a low budget, permanent PPC campaign for their target GEO terms as we find the combination of PPC and SEO wins every time.

JenGallizzo.com, a professional organizer based on Crofton, MD requested a free SEO audit of her website. The target keyword phrase she suggested was "professional organizer". That phrase, according to Google Adwords, has a national search volume of over 9,000 searches per month. She already utilizes Google Adwords and has a Google Map listing.
Regarding her search engine ranking, she has none. We searched in private mode so as not to bias results with our web history. She did not show up in the top ten or twenty of the search phrase "professional organizer". However, Google Map listings did show above the organic results, and she is ranked in Google maps at about number 15. This means she has an opportunity to increase you SERP by gathering some reviews and utilizing Googles new "post" functions.

Fairfax VA Dentist seo : FairfaxDentistVa.com Review
Out of 22 on page elements reviewed, our SEO audit tool recorded 2 errors and 9 warnings for improvement for FairfaxDentistVa.com. The term used to find them in Google was "Fairfax Dentist VA". We gave this site and A- even though it has plenty of warning and one serious error. The reason is, despite the warnings and the old school keyword dense domain name, it does have first page ranking for a keyword variation, which you will see further down in the report. Also, the one "serious" error, is a pretty easy fix.
