Understanding the Pillars of Search Rank

The Keys to Your Success: Proximity, Prominence, and Relevance

A. Proximity: Imagine being a Realtor, a Lawyer, a Loan Officer, an Insurance Agent or any other professional, aiming to attract local clients. Proximity measures how close your business is to where people are searching. If you’re nearby, you get a higher score. It’s like choosing a nearby café instead of one far away.

B. Prominence: This mirrors your online reputation. Positive reviews, social media presence, and media coverage elevate your online fame. It’s like being the most recognized professional in your field.

C. Relevance: This evaluates if your business aligns with what people are seeking. It’s like fitting the right piece into a puzzle. Search engines analyze your website’s content to determine if it matches user queries. When it does, your relevance score rises.

Why Does This Matter to Marketers?

Did you know that over 40,000 Google searches are conducted every second?
