    New Local Search Forum - OFFICIAL LAUNCH TODAY!


    Announcing the Official Launch of the
    NEW Local Search Forum


    Today I'm a Proud Mamma! This forum has been a dream of mine for over a year.
    So I'm very excited to finally announce it. Hope you'll join us!


    Local Search Forum


    The Local Search Forum was developed due to popular demand by Catalyst blog readers and all of my Advanced Google Places Training and LOCAL SEO Training clients. They all want a positive and productive place to learn, discuss Google Places issues, brainstorm about local search and support each other.

    The public forum includes several sections and tons of great content already. There is a forum for all the most important Google Places updates/bugs/alerts and a Google Places help/troubleshooting forum for business owners as well as consultants to post questions and problems in. There is also a Private Local Search PROs Forum that's only available to Advanced Places Training clients.

    Join the Local Search Forum Here! (Register button top right)

    Check out all the important topics & great discussions so far - click recent posts at top of forum.
    Set up a good signature and introduce yourself!


    OH and this is YOUR COMMUNITY - I work for you now! ;-)
    So just let me know what you need!


    We did an invitation-only pre-launch last week, but now we are ready to open to the public. My right hand man and our Forum Administrator David Baxter, a full-time practicing Psychologist and part-time Geek, was extremely instrumental in making it all happen and has been working with me tirelessly for weeks, tweaking code and templates to make everything work. Thank you David!

    Thanks in advance for joining. Look forward to brainstorming with all of you!

    Thanks so much Chris. It truly was a labor of love and I think badly needed by the local search community.

    ESPECIALLY as G+ fully rolls out, we're going to need a place to stay on top of everything and support each other. Could be a bit of a wild ride!

    Thanks Colan, it was a lot of work to pull off, but will be SO worth it!

    Local Search really needed it's own community and it's going to be exciting see
    how we can all grow together and support each other.

    This is gonna be gooooooood.

    I look forward to sharing as much as I can with this community. I've helped out quite a few people in the Google Places for Business Forum, but like the idea of a forum that covers more than Google +Local.

    I think there are a lot of opportunities to market a local business beyond the maps listings - actually, I believe it to be mandatory. I'll be happy to share what has worked for my clients and will call on this forum from time to time when I need help as well.

    Thanks Linda and David!
