Great research and post - I have got to here people's opinions on this! Great blogpost by Ross Marchant over at Bright Local on Organic Listings vs. Local Listings!

51% say high local rankings do better
30% say local and organic are equal
19% say organic serves better

I have such a strong opinion on this - but feel at times that I am biased to Local. I would love to hear people's feedback and examples here to help balance me out!

Thanks for sharing Susan.

Here is the original thread I did, the day Ross posted that study:
<a href="http://www.localsearchforum.com/local-seo-ranking/35187-local-search-engine-optimization-performs-better-high-pack-high-organic-rankings.html">Local SEO: Which Performs Better - High Pack or High Organic Rankings?</a>

It's fine to share again cuz some folks I'm sure missed that one. Just sharing to circle the wagons and because there were some good replies on that one.

Thanks again!
