    Correct Answer(s)

    G. Directory listings
    Explanation
    Citations, claimed profiles, and directory listings are all types of off-page optimization. Off-page optimization refers to the actions taken outside of a website to improve its search engine rankings. Citations are mentions of a business's name, address, and phone number on other websites. Claimed profiles are online profiles that a business has control over and can optimize for better visibility. Directory listings are listings of a business's information on online directories. All of these techniques help to increase a website's visibility and authority in the eyes of search engines.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Off-Page SEO makes a bigger impact than On-Page SEO.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Off-Page SEO refers to the activities done outside of a website to improve its search engine rankings, such as link building and social media marketing. These activities can have a significant impact on a website's visibility and authority, ultimately leading to higher rankings in search engine results. On the other hand, On-Page SEO focuses on optimizing the content and structure of a website to make it more search engine friendly. While both Off-Page and On-Page SEO are important for a comprehensive SEO strategy, Off-Page SEO often has a bigger impact as it involves building external signals and credibility for a website.

      Let the client choose

    • B.

      We make a suggestion, but take the client's opinion into consideration

    • C.

      We try to get as close to their current domain (or business name) as possible

    • F.

      B, C, or E

    Correct Answer
    D. We use a domain that reflects their segment and location
    Explanation
    We choose a domain based on SEO best practices; it will be focused on their segment, the services they're looking to promote, and their local serving area. This will help it rank and be more recognizable to new customers who've never heard of them before.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Clients' accounts are launched within 48 hours, using stock content for their Adversities.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true. It states that clients' accounts are launched within 48 hours, using stock content for their Adversities. This means that clients can expect their accounts to be set up and ready to use within a maximum of 48 hours. The use of stock content for their Adversities suggests that pre-existing content or templates are used to create advertisements for the clients' accounts.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Custom content is created for clients' Adversities. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    We launch with stock content so we can get their accounts live. Once live, we begin to work on creating and adding custom content to help climb the Organic rankings.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    We have set time frames for when we add custom content to clients' Adversities. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    When it comes to creating content and citations, there isn't a specific schedule. Updates like this are like bullets that we can use to aim at the target of being ranked #1. We don't have unlimited bullets, so we want to use them at the most opportune times, which will be different for every customer based on the success they're seeing without using their bullets.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which of the following are true of Citations?

    • A.

      The business name, address, and phone number must match what's on the website

    • B.

      The search engines double check this information to ensure consistency and credibility

    • C.

      Mismatched citations can hurt click through rate and conversion

    • D.

      Citations are an example of Off page SEO

    • E.

      Without a citation on Yelp, it will be very hard to rank Organically

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. The business name, address, and phone number must match what's on the website
    B. The search engines double check this information to ensure consistency and credibility
    D. Citations are an example of Off page SEO
    Explanation
    Mismatched citations can hurt Organic ranking. CTR and CVR do not come into play here. Yelp is one of many highly credible places to have a citation. While it would be helpful, not having one won't destroy your chances of ranking. Overall, good citations are all about having many consistent ones...not a couple big ones.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Why would an SMB want to do both PPC and SEO together? 

    • A.

      PPC will work immediately, while SEO takes time to ramp up

    • B.

      Multiple links on the SERP is better than 1

    • C.

      SEO doesn't allow the user to change focus (i.e. Heater Repair vs. Air Conditioner Repair) like PPC does

    • D.

      PPC will help increase Organic ranking

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. PPC will work immediately, while SEO takes time to ramp up
    B. Multiple links on the SERP is better than 1
    C. SEO doesn't allow the user to change focus (i.e. Heater Repair vs. Air Conditioner Repair) like PPC does
    Explanation
    An SMB would want to do both PPC and SEO together because PPC provides immediate results, while SEO takes time to show its impact. Having multiple links on the search engine results page (SERP) is advantageous as it increases visibility and chances of attracting more users. Unlike SEO, PPC allows the user to easily change their focus or target specific keywords, which can be beneficial for businesses offering different products or services. Additionally, running PPC campaigns can also help improve organic ranking over time.
