A True Google Search Understanding

Understanding Google Search is vitally important to your business, if you are going to compete for online traffic and visibility.

I have been creating content for Google and the web for so long that I sometimes forget the depth of my understanding when trying to simplify it for a client or friend. What is SEO? Why is it important? How does it work? … All valid questions with pretty complicated answers. In my opinion, you never fully understand it unless

online-reviews-helpRecently, there has been a rash of businesses contacting me and saying “Help.  I didn’t know I had all these online reviews and some of them are bad.  How do I monitor these?  Should I respond or ignore the bad reviews?  How can I manage this?”
