    Get Your Local Search Answers: Experts and Resources


    Get Your Local Search Answers: Experts and Resources

    Local Search is a challenge for newbies and experts alike. Google frequently makes changes to their ranking factors, display, and SERPs. Keeping track of all of Google’s changes, let alone the diverse citation and online review site ecosystem that’s evolving, is like trying to pat your head while rubbing your stomach while twirling a baton–it’s harder than hard. And even the most minor
    alterations can have a significant impact on small businesses.

    Fortunately, there’s a strong neighborhood watch of Local Search experts, companies, and forums that are helping to keep us informed.

    So where do we start?

    Most blog posts become obsolete in mere months. There are many types of articles and forum posts out there that can still be useful, but always be wary of the post date when implementing the advice of a Local SEO article.

    This collected assortment of experts, forums, and blogs will aid you in your quest for local search dominance.
    I'm also very excited to share that Local Search Forum and some frequent contributors here were featured in the post. I love this forum as a resource!

    Special thank you to Joy, Colan, and mborgelt for helping me out when I posted a request for some recommendations last week.

    Geez Garrett, this post is intense. You really did your home work. This is an incredible resource, I'll definitely be linking people to it when someone's looking for a map. As always, you put together something well worth checking out, I dig it. Maybe I'll use this as a kick in the pants to finally start poking around on twitter...

    Re: Get Your Local Search Answers: Experts and Resources

    Thank you James! You should definitely poke around twitter. Especially since many experts write many blog posts that they share on twitter. (Otherwise, it can be tricky to keep track).

    I've become one of those people who gets most of their information from Twitter at this point.

    James I have a list of most of the top local peeps and some SEO peeps if that helps you get started with who to follow. https://twitter.com/CatalystLocal/li...al-search-pros

    I've always been a big Twitter fan but it's my main focus these days.

    Thanks for sharing this on the G+ Pro Community too James. You're my main point man lately. Really appreciate you helping to spread the word on great posts like Garrett's!

    Very nice write up, and TBH I was just as impressed by the twitter card section. I didn't realize those flipped over until I hovered over, and thought the twitter bio addition was very cool! Creative addition to the article; very well done. Good stuff Garrett
