Google's Local Snack Pack Shake-Up: What You Need to Know Local SEO has seen the biggest shake-up since Google launched their first local algorithm, Pigeon, just over a year ago. On Thursday, August 6th, people began to notice that the usual 7-packs that frequently showed up in the search results for local businesses were suddenly replaced with 3-packs in the desktop search results. It initially wasn't too alarming, but as the hours passed it was obvious Google had changed the face of local search in their search results. By the end of that day, 3-packs had completely replaced all the 7-packs across all verticals and across all countries. By the next morning, less than 24 hours after the first changes were noticed, Mozcast confirmed what everyone suspected: 7-packs were history and 3-packs were all the rage. Mobile-centric As mobile usage continues to grow higher and higher, Google has changed their desktop search results to appear more similar to the mobile-specific search results; the 3-packs fit perfectly on the screen for mobile users.

Success is different for every person, but when it comes to business, there are several layers of success you can accomplish. Successful people are sometimes idolized and copied, but it’s by finding your own way that you will join the prestigious club of the most successful people. I get a lot of comments on social media regarding success, and how it’s not all about money, and I agree with that, but success should be analyzed no matter how shallow it may seem. It’s when analyzing the way people have reached success, and how they did it that we can determine what personality traits and work ethic you need in order to find the right path to achieve what you want. It doesn’t really have to be all about business. It’s always important to incorporate the right mindset when trying to reach a higher level of success, no matter what area it may be within. So how do we get a better understanding about the mindset and process successful people have incorporated into their plan?

<a href=" Content is one of the more important aspects of your website, but it can also be the biggest pain. Although it makes good sense for SEO and lead generation purposes to keep updating your social media sites and keep up a blog, business owners -- and even some marketers -- are generally not writers. Thus, having to come up with topics, read over submissions, and create original content is quite groan-worthy for many.
