The other day I found a Yelp SEO Google Listing Trick I wanted to share.

Recently I wrote an article on how I go about doing keyword research.  The keyword phrase that I ended up choosing was “Austin SEO Expert“.  As part of the my research I performed searches on the phrase “Austin SEO Expert” with various search engines including Google, Bing, Yahoo and a few others.  I was looking to see what the competition was doing and how they were ranking for that particular phrase.

Right below my Hang Ten SEO’s listing was a listing for the keyword phrase I was targeting and it was coming from Yelp.  Turns out that when you add images to your Yelp account, you can specify a photo caption and that is exactly what the company above did to one of their images.  In essence adding a target keyword phrase they hoped to rank for and it worked.  Google appears to actually rank Yelp photos based on their Photo Caption.

I decided to give it a try and do something similar.
