Step 1 for all SEO treatment is usually to select your keywords. Just like we talked about adding keywords to completely fill out your Google places categories, you will need to decide what keywords you would like to rank for on Google and use them in your website. I must say that before you do any of these steps it is best to have your website running, free of errors and broken links, and search engine optimized (ie good title tags, sitemap included and indexed by all major search engines, preferred domain set-up).
Completely fill out the following business listing sites, including at least 5-6 photos and a link to your website. Make sure you have the same business name and phone number across all listing sites. :
a. Google places
b. Bing & Yahoo! (See bing local business listing center.)
