Before the arrival of internet lot of the business promotions like leaflets distribution, local ceremonies sponsorship and local news paper ads were popular in order to introduce business in local market. All of these things promotion campaigns are still valid but with increasing trend of gadgetry electronics people prefer online transaction and search engine first place to start with and 87% of new online transactions are originated from search engine results.

My views By Chaz Key:

I will say this is a well written piece, for the point being “Startup Business and Local SEO”. When it comes to local SEO for a local startup business, this article really hits the point. Local SEO is one of the last frontiers on the internet. It’s funny how everybody ignored local SEO for so many years. Although the businesses that got the head start early on have really hit a nonstop homerun. Anybody who knows me knows, I hate “SEO Snake Oil”.

So I give this article 3 stars out of 5 stars. Only because they didn’t talk about “Language Optimization” when they were talking about sub domains. So I invite Nit Green Web Solutions to do a new article about “Language Optimization”, I will even allow them to post it here on the Nine Eye Blog.
