I missed a HUGE resource when I was covering Pubcon.

Greg Gifford tweeted the following at Pubcon (click to watch the head exploding). I was dying to ask him what Mary did, but got caught up in all the new Tweets and forgot to ask.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Boom - <a href="">@marybowling</a> just did this to everyone in the room <a href="">#pubcon</a> <a href=""></a></p>— Greg Gifford (@GregGifford) <a href="">October 9, 2014</a></blockquote>

Just found the answer and it will indeed make you head explode, like the gif above!

<a href="">Local Search Mindmap | Ignitor Digital</a>

Local search has become more and more involved as the months go on. What used to involve a Yellowpages listing with the right phone number has evolved into an increasingly complex system of content, citations, organic rankings, map listing accuracy, reviews and more. Mary Bowling, co-founder of, LocalU Faculty, and Local Search writer and speaker has created the Local Search Mind Map to help experts and novices alike understand the processes they need to follow to rank well in map packs, as well as dominate the sites that rank well for their search terms.

Check out the Mind Map below, and stay tuned for posts from Ignitor Digital that go in-depth for each section of the graphic.

No I have health issue and can't travel any more.

My last Pubcon was like 10 years ago and my back went out so bad I thought I could not walk through the airport to get on the plane and was afraid I would be stranded in Vegas. That was my last business trip. Don't even try now. Even had to turn down a couple trips to the Plex for meetings with Google. Just too hard to travel. Plus I'm too damned busy to leave.

But hope you had fun for me and I'm sure it was great to see Mary's preso!
