I was reading a question somewhere on a business forum the other day. Someone was asking “Is it possible to make your website come up first on Google in your local area when people type in keywords about your business?” And “if it can be done, how do you go about doing it?”

Ironically, I was working on a project for one of my clients this morning, when an email came into my inbox from a different discussion, but on the same topic of 1st Page Ranking on Google for local business.

So I just wanted to take a minute to say that it is possible to rank on the 1st page of Google in your local area for certain keywords.

It is possible to rank on the 1st page of Google in your local area for certain keywords.

 You do not have to be a top SEO expert to do it. But I do believe that it helps to know a little about targeted keywords and to have an Internet Marketing strategy in mind. It is okay if you do not. You can always find someone with a little more experience in this area to help you out.

For example, I recently had a goal to rank on Google for various keywords in my industry. One of the keywords that I was striving for was “Affordable Blog Design in Georgia“. I developed my strategy and implemented it late one evening on my computer. The very next day, my company’s main website (www.Millennium-Pro.com) and my new blog that you are reading now (www.WebDesignsyByMichelle.com) was on the 1st page of Google!

As you can see by the screenshot, my main site is ranked #1 on Page #1 of Google out of about 117,000 other websites.

My main website (www.millennium-pro.com) is also ranked #1 on Google for the keywords “affordable blog design in atlanta“. As you can see from this 2nd screenshot below, my site is in slot #7 on Page #1 of Google out of over 344,000 other websites.

Well as soon as I get a break, I plan to create something (a guide or step-by-step document to help you).
