50 Local SEO Lessons from 50 Clients | LocalVisibilitySystem.com | A Social, Tech, Market, Geek addicted | Scoop.it

The day after the historic 1929 stock market crash, Variety bannered their front page with these words: “WALL ST. LAYS AN EGG.” It’s a great headline: pithy, catchy, and expressive of the substance of the story as well as the scale of its consequences. It’s also worth noting thatVariety’s editors had a full day to write the headline—millions of readers weren’t trying to search for the story within seconds of hearing about it.
