Yodle a Local Internet Advertising company based in New York City, NY recently announced the launch of it’s highly anticipated service, Yodle Organic, “a new offering specifically designed to help local businesses build their web presence and generate more website traffic for less than $500 per month.”
The big question is: Does Yodle Organic Actually Work?
There is a large amount of speculation in the seo world, and rightfully so. Small businesses owners are being smothered with seo garbage that promises the world and delivers nothing – is Yodle any different?
I took 10 Yodle Organic customer websites and thoroughly analyzed them for best SEO practices and how their rankings & traffic really stack up – can you expect Yodle Organic to work for you?
Company Name: Lone Star Roofing
Yodle Organic Website:
I’ve been watching the progress of FlatroofSpecialist.net for several weeks and have been closely monitoring their SEO progress with regards to both off-page seo and on-page SEO, link building while monitoring ranking progress in Google, Yahoo and Bing.
Gradually Increasing Ranks with the Major SERPs represent Positive SEO
GOOD & BAD SEO IS EASY TO MEASURE…
I monitored 32 keywords in the top 3 search engines and found pretty good progress for most of them…
The graph to the left indicates continual growth in Google for one of the 32 keywords monitored. This specific keyword grew 47 positions in two short days – pretty cool eh?
Of the 32 keywords monitored, 3 landed prominent first page positions in Google, 13 in Bing and 4 in Yahoo.
The remaining keywords will most likely land 1st page positions with a little bit of link love and a few on-page SEO enhancements…
Steadily increase in rankings = good SEO!
IS YODLE ORGANIC WORTH THE $$?
You can’t beat a Good SEO campaign for under $1K/mo, it just doesn’t happen, until now…
Most small business owners cannot afford to hire local seo agency’s who in many cases cost well over $1,000/mo for an aggressive seo campaign.
Yodle’s found a niche… and that niche is leveling the playing field for small businesses.
Prior to Google, Yahoo, Bing etc… the only businesses who survived were the companies who had the cash on hand to dump into their advertising, luckily that has changed and companies like Yodle allowing small business owners the chance to compete with their largest competitors for the first time ever.
2 SEO Tips I would use to enhance organic SEO rankings for FlatRoofSpecialist.net
- Add Dallas to your H1 tags…
- Add rel=”nofollow” to outgoing links…
There is a general misconception on how to link to outside websites. Many think that linking to an authority website will help your rankings… I am not entirely sure what Yodle’s thinking is behind this but my personal recommendation, especially to newer websites which don’t contain much authority is to preserve it using the rel=”nofollow” attribute to outgoing links.
That’s all for now.. Stay classy.
