The PlaceRank Secret Behind Google’s Local Search Rankings. Most local business marketers focus solely upon their company’s web presence and don’t realize that if they shifted a portion of their promotional efforts outward in a less self-centered manner, the benefit might come back to help their own online marketing performance.
This premise is based upon a virtually-secret aspect of the PlaceRank local search algorithm. What Is PlaceRank? “PlaceRank” is named after “PageRank,“ Google’s original ranking algorithm, and it is the process by which Google collects information about all sorts of local places, and then interprets that information to generate ranking scores for each place. Marketers mostly concentrate upon business locations as places, but there are far more things that can be places, such as cities, counties, office buildings, residential addresses, parks, statues and monuments, automated teller machines, and more.

The author's posts are entirely his or her own (excluding the unlikely event of hypnosis) and may not always reflect the views of Moz.
In early October, Google announced a new project called " The Physical Web," which they explain like this: The Physical Web is an approach to unleash the core superpower of the web: interaction on demand. People should be able to walk up to any smart device - a vending machine, a poster, a toy, a bus stop, a rental car - and not have to download an app first. Everything should be just a tap away. At the moment this is an experimental project which is designed to promote establishing an open standard by which this mechanism could work. URLs: The project proposes that all 'smart devices' should advertise a URL by which you can interact with that device. Beacons: Not well known until Apple recently jumped on the bandwagon announcing iBeacons, beacon technology has been around for a couple of years now.

Reviews have two sides: Where do people read them? And Where do people like to leave them? I suspected that the answers to these two questions might not be the same.
Facebook reviews received more of my attention with the Big Earl’s controversy in early June. I also saw the phenomenon on Barbara Oliver’s FB page despite her making no specific effort to get reviews there, they were piling up at a steady rate.

Parmi les commentaires suscités par cet article, le dernier a particulièrement attiré mon attention. La question qu’y soulève Gaëtan est centrale : comment Google détermine-t-il avoir affaire à la marque ? C’est une question à laquelle j’ai souvent réfléchi, remuant diverses hypothèses sans dégager de réponse 100% satisfaisante. Chaque fois que je tentais d’élaborer une nouvelle théorie, je trouvais un contre-exemple. En espérant que d’autres professionnels viendront commenter l’article et ainsi apporter leur propre pierre au débat… Définition de la marque. Bring your local business online.
