    Here is a great local search 101 post from Scott Davis that has cool images and is fun to read.

    Bookmark for that client that wants to understand the basics, or even for a brand new green employee who needs to get the big picture.

    Top 3 Local Search Necessities: Links, Citations & Maps, Oh my!

    Follow the Yellow Brick Road

    The simple strategy above is just the beginning of a full-fledged, local SMB marketing campaign, but it should provide a good starting point for the basic necessities of marketing your business in local search. I’ve put your feet on the yellow brick road and pointed you toward the Emerald City of dominating Local Search. The rest of the journey is up to you, your team of professional marketers and your marketing budget.
    Above is just a partial snippet, click through to read the rest.

    I have not added to our 101 section for awhile, so this was the perfect fit.

    Great post. Thanks Scott!

    WHOA! That search result for "appliance repair dallas" is interesting!
    (FYI must set location to Dallas to see the bad pack.

    Scott's screenshot shows none of the 3 pack results have a website. I get 1 of the 3 with a site.

    There are LOTs of appliance repair shops in Dallas with sites and reviews.
    Not sure why that pack is so strange.

    #3 "Flying Valentine's Appliance Repair" not only does not have a site. It does not even have a phone #. According to a Yelp review #3 may even be closed. So not a great pack at all.
