    Re: White Board Friday: Does Pure Brand Strength Affect Your Ranking?

    Good one. Thanks Justin! Saw the headline and was hoping someone would share it here.
    Look forward to watching later when I can.

    But of course the 1st thing that comes to my mind is that yes if Brand includes City or Keywords it makes a BIG impact on Local Search. But I'm not sure if Rand talks about that. He's probably focused on big brand national search I assume.

    Anyone watch yet? What do you guys think?
