In 2017, my local rankings dropped suddenly. Here we go again, I remember thinking.

Since I recovered those rankings, I’ve stayed at the top of the Google map pack for Houston SEO or SEO Houston consistently for 2 years. Much has changed from 2017 to 2019 and for some of us, it’s helped, while others it has sent on a wild goose chase.

In this article, I’m going to take you through a step-by-step 2019 local SEO action plan that will get your rankings back to the top and keep them there.

Step 1: Conduct an SEO audit

The first step of getting back to the top of Google maps is by conducting a thorough SEO Audit. One of the first things I like to do before running my site through an SEO audit tool or crawler is seeing exactly which pages are indexed in Google.

To do this go to google and type in site:[yourwebsite.com] just like its shown in the screenshot below.

This advanced search operator allows us to view only the pages on our website that are indexed in Google.

The next step is to install the SEOQuake Google Chrome extension. Once it has been installed, go to your Google search settings and change the number of results on each page to 100 instead of 10.
