Search Engine Optimization

Questions or comments

This project started out with a conversation with the VW Service Manager at the VW Gallery in Norwood, MA. In brief it asked "Is there something we can do to improve of search engine rankings and how would we know if we had?" We wanted to do something like search for "vw service sharon ma" and have the rankings show the VW Gallery service in the top 5 rankings. In November the benchmark readings showed the VW Gallery very low or not in the first page or so of rankings see (Table 1 - SEO Rankings). The test search string is "vw service town-name ma". No Meta tags were used.
