This Week in the Lab with SEO Mad Scientist

What Can You Do to Solve Cannabilization Issues? Here’s What We Are Testing…
Welcome back, SEO mad scientist, to another weekly update!

This week we’re going to have a quick update on our cannibalization tests and what we have done to see how we can influence Google to uncannibalize our listing instead of ranking other listings at the same location.

We currently have two listings at the same location with a few different keywords cannibalizing each other. We’ve done a few things for each situation to test their impact on the cannibalized term.

Let’s take a look at the current rankings and what we are testing.
Test #1: This test is mostly onsite variables. We simply added another relevant service page for the primary keyword, “Search Engine Optimization Analysis,” added a link to the page in our primary site menu, and added additional references to the homepage of the website (all things we found influence local ranking from previous tests.)
Test #2: We mostly tested the listing optimization for this test. We’ve added some additional categories and services to the listing and a couple of optimized “products.”
Test #3: For our final test term, we wanted to test a combination of on-site and off-site signals but try something new. For this test, we published some relevant content on the site for long-tail terms (using the blog) and syndicated these posts on our business listing.

We saw very little movement from GBP posting a long time ago, but there could be more weight on this now.

Join us next week as we dig deeper into our cannibalization tests and break down the details of our first test term, exactly what was done and what results see.

Until then, happy testing!
