    Hi from Australia

    Hi everyone .. I have just joined your wonderful forum and wish I had joined earlier .. so many knowledgable people in one place.

    I am from Brisbane Australia and have been interested in local search and local seo for the last 5 years or so .. maybe a little more. My background is in Software Development and I have over 20 years experience in designing and building market leading software solutions.

    I am very passionate about helping small businesses with their online presence and reputation. In my previous company which was a POS company for salons & spas we built an online directory to help our customers get found online and during the research process I realised how little support there was for small businesses to manage everything happening online around their business (and how easy it was to launch a new directory site) with new products appearing all the time ... such as Google Local, Foursquare and Yelp to name a few. They were completely unprepared to deal with the change and in the most part did next to nothing.

    After that company was acquired I have been all about solving that problem and helping small businesses who have little time and knowledge to maximize their online opportunities .. a big part of that is local seo and citation building and providing tools to help small businesses and their agents manage their local seo, online reviews and more and have visibility across their entire online presence from one place.

    I am hoping to learn a lot but also to help where I can.

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    Re: Hi from Australia

    Hi Paul,

    Building up a nice contingent of Aussies here - Yay!

    You'll find this forum a life-saver when it comes to local. The trick is to take a bit of time every day to read/scan the posts. forums can be tricky when it comes to finding things, but if you stay on top of the posts you'll learn and discover things at a rate you couldn't possibly do on your own. It's a great group of contributors here.
