I know you are dying to see the new Local Search Ranking Factors. Don't worry, it's coming soon! :)

But you guys all know how much Google organic ranking factors figure into the local search algo, so I want to share some recent studies that just came out that analyze the top ORGANIC ranking factors.

Here are links to some of the studies and below are 2 infographics from SearchMetrics

SEO Ranking Factors - Rank Correlation 2013 for Google USA 2013 (Search Metrics)

The Periodic Table Of SEO Success Factors (Search Engine Lane)

(If you are newer to organic SEO or want a refresher here is a companion guide from Search Engine Land that's very good. Search Engine Land’s Guide To SEO)

This one just came out. Google Ranking Factors Post-penguin 2.0 (Netmark.com)

I'm surprised to see how social signals are taking the cake in many of these studies.
