How Effective Is Citation Building For Local SEO?

Businesses nowadays must invest in increasing their online visibility if they want to reach more customers. It is no longer enough to advertise in radio, television or newspaper. The internet is the go-to marketing option these days. This is the reason why Citations Builder started in the first place with the goal of helping business reach more customers by improving their online visibility. We specialize in local SEO citations by manually adding business citations on niche sites, geo sites as well as rich media sites. Citations Builder is known for its affordable citation building packages – small, medium and large worth $60, $130 and $200 respectively.

Local SEO citations are necessary for local businesses that aim to have a higher ranking in their local search engines. This is the result when a consumer search for products and services with a specific location included in the keyword. For business to influence the local search engine rankings, citations are very important.

Results can be seen in just a few weeks while it may also take a few months for others. This is why it is recommended to hire a citations builder as soon as possible. The result is only updated ones the spiders of Google have already crawled through the updated citations list. The result will depend greatly on the competitiveness of the specific’s business niche. It there is not much competition to begin with, citations can help a business get the top ranking. For competitive niches, it might take a little more work such as link building.

It is an evident fact that business who fail to make use of citation building will eventually be out of the industry in a few years. These strategies are the future of success in business building. The truth is that the services and products of a certain company will not took off, no matter how good or effective they are, if there is consumer to pay for or purchase them. Television ads are not as effective as an online presence because of the growing number of people that are using the internet compared to those watching televisions on a daily basis. There are now very few people who are still relying on the traditional methods of finding services and products.

great book and great characters
The Competition - Donna Russo Morin

In this time women could draw at home but not be an artist that was for a man to do. These women had to develop their talent in hiding as women were not allowed to be artists. Women were supposed to have children and run their homes.  These women were learning to be better artists  with Leonardo Da Vinci  as their mentor. The women were hoping this time would be there chance to be recognized by other artists. Viviana is an artist who belongs to a group called The Disciples Of Da Vinci. Viviana, Isabella, Fiammetta, and Mattea are all members of this group. The risks these women are willing to take for their art. The women were lucky in that Da Vinci’s thinking was ahead of his time and were willing to teach this women to better their art. The women want to bid on some work to be done on a chapel in time. Lorenzo unofficially runs  Florence  and has changed since his brothers death so the women have hope things may change for them and their art. The women do get permission from Lorenzo to work on the chapel  but Lorenzo doesn’t believe they have the talent or the ability to be successful. The church is against women painting especially in a place of worship. Florence is not ready to recognize women as artists as artists have a lot of  power in  Florence. Also the attention may disrupt their lives and there was a chance of physical violence being brought to these women. Than Da Vinci was sent  to Milan as by Lorenzo as he had a lot of unfinished projects so the women ow see less of him the last couple of years. Although he does visit the female artists at least once a month. Leonardo came to the meeting where they discussed working on the chapel and he told the women to go home and tell their families before they did anything else.

I enjoyed this book. I loved the fact it told Da Vinci’s POV and I liked the plot and the pace of this. I also liked the fact Michelangelo was brought up when he was nine years old.  I thought this was very well written. I also really enjoyed this book and felt these women were courageous. I am happy I am in the generation I was born in. To be so limited to what you were to do with your life. I felt the characters were great as was the book itself and I highly recommend,

Gives new meaning to "What's in the fridge?"
Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast - Josh Funk,Brendan Kearney

A few weeks ago, I read a book called Dear Dragon which was about a pen pal relationship between a little boy and a dragon but they had no idea they were writing to someone of a different species. The illustrations were on point but it was the storyline that had me looking to see what else the author had written. (His name is Josh Funk by the way.) Turns out he had another book by the snazzy title of Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast (with a sequel called The Case of the Stinky Stench due out on May 2nd). This book has fantastic illustrations by Brendan Kearney which truly bring the fridge food to life. If you're reading aloud to pre-school age children, I highly encourage you to have the kids make predictions and point out their favorite (and least favorite) food items. Otherwise, this book might be a bit of a daunting read-aloud because there are quite a few challenging words (and lots of them) per each page. It follows our two main characters, Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast, on an epic quest to reach the last drop of syrup remaining in the syrup bottle. Lots of ridiculous rhyming, competitive taunting, and delicious food items abound. 9/10 for frolicking foodie fun.

 

Note: If you do decide to use this as a storytime read-aloud and/or you utilize this in a lesson I recommend you check out Josh's website which has a free downloadable activity kit to complement the book.

Marcia Clark: The Competition
The Competition - Marcia Clark

This book could be read as a stand alone novel as it is not entirely necessary to read the previous three in the series to understand what is occurring in this book or Rachel as a character. Yes, the relationships within the book are established in the previous three books Guilt by Association, Guilt by Degrees and Killer Ambition, however, by not reading them does not hinder this book. That said I would recommend the previous books especially Guilt by Association (which I thought was a fantastic start to this series).

Marcia Clark is back with the newest installment of her Rachel Knight series just in time to let you know that there is no place where you can be safe:

Rachel Knight receives a call that no DA wants, there has been a school shooting and there are major casualties but the killers have been identified and both are dead. As Rachel and Bailey start to interview the witnesses and other student, some things don't add up and they begin to wonder if the killer really are dead. What they don't know is the the competition has begun and there is nothing scarier that killers who want to be the best and beat the score of those who came before them.

I know I criticized the last Rachel Knight book for not having enough time in the courtroom, well this one has even less time. For me this is what stood out for me in Clark's previous books in this series was the integration of the investigation and the courtroom. I miss the courtroom aspects in these books and I think this book could have been something more if Clark had decided to include them. I personally think that there are so many authors out there that write in the mystery/thriller genre that you want to do something different to stand out and this is the courtroom for Clark. She knows how the courtroom works and this is where Rachel really shines. In the investigation part she really is second fiddle to Bailey (which makes sense as she is the detective), however, the point of view of the story is from Rachel so we get a lot of Bailey already thinking and doing something before Rachel even suggests it. This in turn overshadows Rachel and her character, and I will say again she is the main character. I just feel overall the Rachel I loved in the beginning of this series has become lost along the way.

All of that said, this is still a really good and interesting read and I loved the topic and premise that Clark decided to focus on, school shooting and the competition aspect. I think that this is an under used topic in books recently but I think the next school involved aspect will be something to do with the Creepy Clowns (such a weird trend). Clark did a really good job in hiding and changing you idea of who the second shooter is and I will say that she kept me guessing right till the end.

I personally think there is a lack of really great courtroom procedural books out there with a character like Rachel Knight and I hope that Clark in the future has Rachel return to the courtroom. This book is still good without it, but there are so many books out there with a "crime fighting duo" that I wanted more from what I originally liked from this series. I will read the next book in the series just to see where Clark takes it next, guess it really isn't a must read for me know though.

Enjoy!!!

Stiff Competition (Mattie Winston, #7)
Stiff Competition - Annelise Ryan

I've almost always liked this series, even when it was sometimes painful in the beginning watching Mattie get herself into humiliating situations, but as the series progressed, so has Mattie (I'm pretending Lucky Stiff didn't happen).

 

Far and away, I think, this is the best book in terms of character development: short of one horribly silly moment of insecurity when she makes a decision that even high school me would have thought was stupid, Mattie is calm, rational, confident and incredibly capable. This is a woman who has (mostly) found her stride.  Hurley's much more centered too, although we don't see a lot of him in the middle of the book, he's in the centre of one of the plots.  There's some drama with Hurley's daughter, but I'm pretty sure it's the final drama.

 

The main mystery plot was...ok.  I definitely didn't guess it, and some of the crimes were inspired, but the denouement felt sort of forced.  Counterbalancing this though is the fact that at no time does Mattie do anything TSTL and we have a great ending that doesn't involve Mattie in mortal peril.  

 

The sub-plot concerning Hurley's daughter was the winner here; this was a great plot and it was well-paced with a terrific climax.  This one easily made up for any perceived short-comings I might have found in the murder mystery itself.

 

Thoroughly enjoyed this one and I hope there's another one.

 

This is my Fall into a Good Book book for Halloween Book Bingo.
