SEO Cheatsheet
« on: March 12, 2014, 09:34:31 PM »
First, complete the following questionnaire BEFORE you begin to submit your website to the search engines, review websites and other citation sites. Some of these questions may not apply to your business, if that is the case, just leave them blank.

Be accurate and thorough. The most important thing to remember is to BE CONSISTENT! All of your submissions must have identical information or you will not get the search engine rankings that you will need to improve business.

After you have completed this questionnaire, use it and the information that it asked you to gather up, to submit to the 25 sites included below it.

Here are, in my opinion, the top 25 review/citation sites in no particular order to submit the above information to. As I mentioned before, accuracy and consistency is vitally important. This is in no way an exhaustive listing, but it has been proven to be successful for me.

There are also many directory sites for specific industries that you should submit your business to. You can find these by searching for �Your Industry Directory Listings
