I have a few tips but much of what we do internally isn't as relevant to local search results.

For you, go first with the Google location. That shows up on the top pretty quick for local searches. Right now run just a few ads- not a huge budget, just enough to be on top some of the time so you can gauge how valuable being on top is before you spend money. Post lots here and on the InterNACHI forum with links to your website of course (backlinks from relevant sites matter!) and make sure your content lends itself to your desired keywords. If you're just getting started and have some URL options that would mimic those searches that would help as well early on.

Besides what Nathan said, I write short blogs about home maintenance ,inspections stuff and local events just really short about 300 words once a week or so. ....For and example I wrote one about frying turkeys for Thanksgiving as a safety tip, and let me say I'm no writer for sure. It seems to me once your on page 1 that blogs help keep you there because of new " local " relevant content to the local search area. Most other guys built their site and that's it. My new site got to page 1 in just a few months for my local search area... so good luck it will happen if you keep after it.

Ps. I also post my blog to every place like google plus, Facebook, Twitter etc. you can do this with Hootsuite very easily and have then go out on a schedule you set up.

Off topic just a bit, Steven. You probably want to review your custom links (map and social media links).

They currently all point to "Wix."

Wow that was a huge pain in the butt but after about an hour I got all of them linked properly. And anyone that takes time to write a blog for a few hours in the afternoon especially if you're using wix.com please remember to hit the save button early and often I accidentally erased my blog page and my blog earlier I didn't even realize it

Ouch!

I sometimes write "copy" on a word processor, and later copy/paste the end result due to my past experiences similar to this.
