September 18, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
September 18, 2014 - Agoura Hills, CA National Positions ( has announced the launch of a suite of four local marketing programs engineered to help businesses succeed in response to Google's new local search algorithm.

On July 24, 2014, Google announced the rollout of their new Google "Pigeon" algorithm specifically aimed at local search results.

Unlike Panda and Penguin, Google's other major algorithm updates, sites losing rankings due to Pigeon aren't specifically being penalized. Instead, Pigeon has limited the number of local organic and maps results Google returns. What this means for local businesses is more competitive local rankings and less exposure at the top of Google's results pages.

National Positions new Local SEO with Maps program is specifically engineered to give businesses everything they need to gain exposure in the local search results post-Pigeon.

"Google's Pigeon Algorithm has transformed how customers find local businesses online," said National Positions President, Bernard May. "We've created an extraordinary program at an incredible price, with packages starting at well under $1000."

Before Google's algorithm update, a local business needed only to optimize their Google local profile, have an effective local landing page and garner a few client reviews, in order to generate results.

National Positions' local search campaigns leverage thorough onsite and maps optimization, in combination with technical SEO, custom content creation and promotion, conversion optimization, quality link building, reviews management and social media marketing. With online business directories now topping the rankings-often at the cost of individual local businesses' site rankings-National Positions program also ensures businesses have claimed and optimized directory listings and citations in order to maximize exposure.

For businesses interested in learning more about how Google's new algorithm has impacted local search, National positions will be hosting a free webinar on The Top Local 2014 Ranking Factors Post-Pigeon, on Wednesday, September 24 at 11AM PT. RSVP today to attended.
