If you do local search, then Local SEO audits are likely the foundation of everything you do - or they should be at least. Audits help you size up where the client is at and formulate a plan that will net the best results. But doing an audit can be painful and time consuming if you don't have your ducks in a row. The following info will help!

I just read a great post by Phil Rosek on the topic of Local Search Audits, so I wanted to share. Then I realized we have several other great audit resources, so thought I'd pull the best of the best together for you.

<a href="http://www.localvisibilitysystem.com/2014/12/15/the-20-principles-of-a-dynamite-local-seo-audit/">The 20 Principles of a Dynamite Local SEO Audit | LocalVisibilitySystem.com</a>

But I’m guessing your problem is that your local SEO audits don’t go boom.

To be more specific, I’d wager that you’ve got at least one of these concerns:

- Clients don’t seem to understand your audits
- Clients don’t act on your audits
- You feel overwhelmed by your own audits
- You want to eliminate wastes of time and effort
- You want to make your audits better

If any of the above describes you, grab a match and some earplugs and come with me.

Here are my 20 principles for a dynamite local SEO audit.

Above is just a snippet, so head over to Phils to read the rest.
