      Thanks for reading the post. In the future, please post your comments with your name rather than targeted keywords, so I know your comment is genuine and not simply a link building campaign.

  2. Local SEO and Normal SEO both are important to increase traffic and after seeing your video I totally agree with you. Both are useful to optimize your website.
