It's extremely frustrating to see your business buried below your competitors, or worse, not even being listed at all. It's a gut wrenching feeling where you can feel paralyzed because you know that in this Mobile era, the Internet, Mobile, and Local Search ecosystems are the "New Window" to your organizations "Front Door". Unfortunately you simply cannot flip a switch and instantly outrank everybody else who is managing their "Digital Footprint".
Well not quite, although NOBODY can force Google (or any search engine) to rank your website at the top of "their" results... you can however, manage your Digital Signals and start rising above your competitors. Search Engines are extremely complex and use thousands of constantly changing algorithms to determine the best search results for their users.
