State of Search 2017 Presentation. Session Description: One of the most common questions Joy gets asked on a regular basis is "Why does this guy rank in the 3-pack and I don't". Finding the answer to that can often be very detailed & complicated but is crucial if you want ranking success. Focusing on the wrong thing can waste a lot of time & money and leave you really frustrated. In this session, Joy will show you several ranking puzzles she analyzed in the last 6 months and show you how she was able to solve them based on gathering information about the competitors ranking in the local results.
