Default BBB? Good For SEO Juice?

I just finished my accreditation process for the Better Business Bureau. It took 5 phone interviews, one group conference call with a supervisor and a contract validation. I mean, it took less work to get married in South Carolina than get accredited.

I work from home and market using the internet. How has a BBB accreditation helped you organically?

Default Google + Important for Local SEO

If you are looking to rank locally on SEO with google then actually what is more beneficial is a Google + page.

http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/u...arch-rankings/

A link on the BBB is good because your customers will see that you are registered and you may get a linkback, which Google sees as relevant. But it will not help you with SEO, especially if your competitors all have the same linkback. Google looks to see WHO has the most linkbacks, the relevance of the linkback and how often the page is updated. Which is why constant good quality blogs are essential to the ranking of any website.

I don`t think you will get any benefit from a SEO point of view.
The "only" benefit you get is the trust of your clients and that should be very important to you

I agree with HCFGrizzly. Google won't give you any direct SEO benefit for having it. But your customers might stay on the site longer reducing your bounce rate because of the trust factor - which will heklp your SEO

Accreditation from a trusted site is one of the factors to help your site organically but not as a basis. Try other related mediums to broaden your site's local SEO, it would be better.

Your BBB link is a "nofollow" link, meaning there is no SEO juice.

A site built to be user-friendly or built for the customer rather than Google will have better conversions/long term results than a spammy site that is written for SEO.

If you can get your site in front of customers... your "hard work" may pay off

I have to agree with Robert here. I'm new to this forum but I do some SEO work and Robert hit the nail on the head.
