    re: Advanced Google+ Local Optimization Webinar

    Eeeeek! I was able to make the first webinar, but I have horseback riding lessons on Wednesday afternoons so it's always touch and go. I hope the horses decide to make my life easy so I can make it back to the office in time for this one. With the new guidelines, this should be super exciting.

    re: Advanced Google+ Local Optimization Webinar

    I'm kind of new to local SEO, but I have been doing nation SEO for a while. I am curious though, I know citations and having a great G+ page and onpage SEO is great but are having regular old backlinks good to have for local ranking?

    Meaning, having backlinks from a niche relevant site with keywords like "nich+city,state" type of thing really worth doing? Examples being blog comments and web 2.0's.

    Yes links are even more important with Pigeon algo. BUT as always need to be careful about building them. Work on ways to EARN them instead. We have lots of posts here about it. Can use the search box for local link building. (Sorry need to eat after webinar, so no time to go find the good ones.)
