If you didn't see Rand Fishkin's moz rebranding post today, buried within the reasons, screen caps, and future roadmap, was this interesting bit re: local. When Dave Mihm joined Moz, we probably all assumed a local toolset would be in the cards, but now Rand has confirmed. Within the comments, it was stated that it would be a US rollout and then a later expansion.

#3: Launch a Product for Local Marketers
A huge percent of the marketers we meet and interact with serve primarily local clients operating in specific geographic markets. They may care about a few standard web rankings, but they also care deeply about local/maps results, along with their ratings/reviews/visibility/accuracy on services like Yelp, FourSquare, CitySearch, TripAdvisor, Urbanspoon, Apple Maps, and the like.

With the acquisition of GetListed and the help of David Mihm, we've got a local squad of engineers, designers, product folks, and marketers working in concert to create the functionality local marketers (whether they be small business owners or consultants/agencies) need. We hope to have this product available by the end of 2013 as a standalone, and we'll be adding many of the features to Moz Analytics as well (probably in a separate tab on the left sidebar).
Goodbye SEOmoz. Hello Moz! - Moz

I'm looking forward to this...

Oh cool Tony. Thanks for the heads up on this. I'd seen the headlines but didn't have time to read the post so didn't know about the local part.
