    Tips from David Mihm's Presentation at SearchLove 2012

    I was browsing some articles this afternoon and was reading Wordtrackers 194 Tips and Tactics from SearchLove 2012. The post covers the full spectrum of internet marketing, but I was impressed by the rather extensive list of tips from the local side of things.

    Below are some of my favorites, but be sure to check out the entire post here: 194 SEO tips and tactics from SearchLove 2012 | Wordtracker

    48) If you've changed address recently, search on your company name along with your old address and clean up any mentions of that address. Beware that it can take up to 100 days for Google to index your new address.

    52) Send people to Qype or Yahoo Local to leave their reviews (not to Yelp – you may end up blacklisted as they don't like solicitation for reviews).

    53) Find powerful local reviewers on Topsy and create a channel in Tweetdeck or Hootsuite to track what it is they're tweeting about.

    54) Use this search on Google:
    "title="Elite 2012"" location site:yelp.co.uk/user_details"
    to find Yelp power users (people who review a lot) if you're in the UK.
    So, if you were looking for Yelp reviewers in Manchester your search would be:
    "title="Elite 2012"" Manchester site:yelp.co.uk/user_details"

    55) And if you were looking in New Jersey, USA you'd try:
    "title="Elite 2012"" new jersey site:yelp.com/user_details

    56) Use this search string to find Google+ users connected to Portland:
    sitelus.google.com “lived * Portland” If you're looking for other locations, just swap Portland for the location you're interested in.

    58) Use www.findpeopleonplus.com to find people relevant to your market.

    Thanks Mike! You ROCK IT!

    Really appreciate you sharing this. I saw a couple mentions of SearchLove and saw that David was speaking and searched for anything interesting the 1st day but found nothing and then never got around to checking again.

    This is exactly the type of thing I've been hoping more members would start sharing here at the forum. So thanks again!

    Can anyone expand on tip #54
    54) Use this search on Google:
    "title="Elite 2012"" location site:yelp.co.uk/user_details"
    to find Yelp power users (people who review a lot) if you're in the UK.
    So, if you were looking for Yelp reviewers in Manchester your search would be:
    "title="Elite 2012"" Manchester site:yelp.co.uk/user_details"

    What do you do once you find an elite reviewer on Yelp? I have a couple thoughts as to where this tip is going, but I feel like I'm missing something.
