I came across the great thread which linked to a great article on Moz about local audits. I've been wanting to try a few tools to see how they can help with time management but I'm unsure of the benefits, accuracy, etc. of such tools since pigeon came along.

I've explored whitespark and bright local (and now the self-audit spreadsheet found in the Moz article) but looking for additional options with feedback with post-pigeon experiences.

Great questions Luke.

BTW for anyone reading, here is the thread Luke is referring to which lists a couple really good resources.

<a href="">How to Perform the Ultimate Local SEO Audit</a>

And here's another really good link. Not an audit per say but everything you need to do/check.
