I’ve noticed that this year, IDEAFIT doesn’t rank as high on a google search for personal training as it did before. Because I use this profile to attract clientele as well as to define myself as a professional, I have been spending a little more time promoting IDEA and was wondering what others are doing to bring this site or their profile more awareness.
We are so happy to hear that you are using your IDEA FitnessConnect profile to attract clientele.
Just a little background: Our strategy is to optimize profiles to rank locally. Most people searching for fitness professionals type in a search based on their city, such as “Personal Trainer East Ridge, TN”, and so we’ve focused our attention on ranking on Google for individual cities. We currently rank within the top 3 search results in 7,000 cities.
It is always good to think about other ways to promote your profile aside from search engine traffic as you mention. We recommend that you read this blog post on 10 ways to promote your profile here for some tips! http://blog.ideafit.com/blogs/ideafitnessconnect/10-ways-to-promote-your…
