A friend, said he can to my blog and was curious what it was all about. He asked if what I was doing was “shady”. LOL I tried to explain to him what it was all about but it got me thinking.

Why I am writing here? There are a lot of reasons. The main reason is because I want to help folks, primarily small business owners. Local search marketing is quickly becoming a huge market. I really think it is a no-brainer for the small business owner, but it seems like they know nothing about local search. Living in Augusta, GA, a relatively small market, I have quickly found out that it takes time for things to make it over here.   None the less, I will continue forward.

Another reason, is I love to talk. LOL Since my lovely wife really does not get into Internet or search marketing, this blog gives me a way to converse with others on this exciting field. I have to say that this blog has helped me meet and network with a lot of great folks.

Finally, the last reason, which is related to the second, is I write for me.  I love learning and as I figure something out, find out about a new service, business, or web site, I usually report it here. Now I do not expect everyone to run out and use the services that I find but, knowledge is power. You can’t do anything about something if you do not know about it first.

My hope is that the information I provide helps shed some light on the subject of local search marketing. It can be very confusing and overwhelming but I think if folks take it one step at a time, they can wade through it all.
