My website did not come up in Google at all. We did the Local search optimization, and within 5 days my site started to come up at the top (yes, # 1) in the Google local results for my primary keyterm "prescott custom homes." Wow.
AIM AZ talked to my women's business group and briefly showed us how to optimize our websites for search engines. As a result, my site went from page 10 on yahoo to page one, and similar for Bing and google. I was very impressed with their knowledge and willingness to be of service.
