With all the facets of local search there are to juggle, staying organized and prioritizing tasks is paramount to your success.

I heard Darren Shaw from Whitespark did a bang up presentation at Distilled's Boston Searchlove
all about sorting through and prioritizing the most important Local SEO tasks. Here is his slide deck.

<iframe src="http://www.slideshare.net/slideshow/embed_code/33280974" width="597" height="486" frameborder="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no" style="border:1px solid #CCC; border-width:1px 1px 0; margin-bottom:5px; max-width: 100%;" allowfullscreen> </iframe> <div style="margin-bottom:5px"> <strong> <a href="https://www.slideshare.net/darrenshaw1/boston-searchlove-how-to-prioritize-your-local-search-work" title="Boston SearchLove How to Prioritize Your Local Search Work" target="_blank">Boston SearchLove How to Prioritize Your Local Search Work</a> </strong> from <strong><a href="http://www.slideshare.net/darrenshaw1" target="_blank">Darren Shaw</a></strong> </div>​

"Local search can add a mountain of additional tasks on top of your existing workload. How do you fit in these extra tasks when you?re already overwhelmed with everything else on your to do list? Darren will walk you through his detailed Local Ranking Blueprint, and show you which local search tasks are the most important, how long they will take, and which tasks can be pushed lower on your priority list."

Hat tip to Phil who blogged about this 1st: Local Search Wisdom from SearchLove Boston 2014 | LocalVisibilitySystem.com

He said tons of nuggets were shared verbally that may not show up on the slides, but the slides should still give you a pretty good roadmap.

What do you think?
