    Hi All,
    For the past 8 years, I have been running a viable SEO Copy/Web Content Writing company in Greater Toronto with a smaller emphasis on Local SEO. I have always worked out of my residence as the majority of the work/communication with clients is and always has been by phone, internet and/or meeting at their local business/Starbucks if they’re local and wish to meet. I am changing the direction of the business; although still offering SEO Copywriting Services, I will be focusing more on ‘Local SEO Services’ moving forward. My question is this: Given the fact that ranking in Maps and Organically for a phrase such as ‘Local SEO Toronto’ and the like is much more competitive than ranking for ‘Web Writer Toronto’, would it make a difference to ranking prominently in Google (Maps/Organically) for a more competitive term/phrase if the company’s address remained as a residence (Condominium) and/or that of a commercial address in Toronto? If the type of address does not matter (residential vs. commercial), does listing the suite/unit number also make a difference?
    Thanks in advance for those that respond!
    -Ray

    As a SAB as long as you hide the address and answer the phone as your business name you are fine in your residence. The best address is one that is closer to the center of your service area. While google will give more scrutiny to a residential address and will be more likely to require that you hide the address, once you are approved it is of equal value.

    If the type of address does not matter (residential vs. commercial), does listing the suite/unit number also make a difference?

    No. A solid histoyr at an address, a good phone number, lots of citations are what is needed. Suite number will provide little if any value.
