When I Google Myself I Don’t Show Up


How many times have you heard this question?

“Why is it that when I Google myself, I never show up?”

The managers of the locations you optimize judge their local SEO reports in broad strokes. But local SEO is surprisingly fine-tuned.

Searching the same keyword phrase in Google from different locations will turn up varied results. In fact, depending on the number of competitors in the area, the local component of the Google algorithm will change results within a few hundred yards.

Searching for your business listing from your actual business location or searching from your home which is a few miles away will yield different results.

Trying to explain all the variables to a business manager results in confusion. Now you can visually portray an accurate representation of a location’s local SEO results:
