My ranking on google for certain aspects of my business is very good (music tuition). But there is always about 4 entries above me at the top of google from these companies that have music teachers subscribing to them, so these database companies tend to land at the top of google all the time.
How can small business deal with this without paying for google ads etc. I do have a good ranking, and I’m in the process of constantly tweaking content on the website etc, but I would just love to knock these big companies from the top of google!!
Any thoughts? Is it even possible??
I have found that by filling out with good details ‘Google - my Business’ and including good photos and descriptions on ‘Google - my Business’ this comes higher than the database companies, that is besides any paid ads. So Google maps that is shown on the search listing, with Google my business details completed with good reviews does actually work.
Another just discovered interesting fact is… I rank higher on DuckDuckGo than on Google. The database companies don’t do so well in DuckDuckGo - go figure!
This extra info may help some of you - it’s worth a try!
But I would still like to come up top organically at the top!
