One of our members Mike Wilton, just did a great post over at Search Engine Watch I wanted to share.

Fine Tuning Your Local Keyword Research Using Google Trends - Search Engine Watch (#SEW)

When it comes to local SEO one of the toughest parts of the job is keyword research. Oftentimes query volume for keywords with locations as modifiers is so low that Google's keyword tool, and now keyword planner simply don't have any data to provide on the keyword.

Google Places and Analytics are two places to find local keyword opportunities. But you can also fine-tune your local keyword research with the help of Google Trends.
Great job Mike!
