<strong><a href="http://moz.com/local-search-ranking-factors">David Mihm's Local Search Ranking Factors 2013</a></strong> was just published at MOZ. In this time of chaotic Google Local changes, you will want to be sure to read every word and bookmark it for future reference.

I was honored to be selected as a contributor again this year, along with a distinguished group of local marketing experts from around the world to share insights and opinions about the most important Google local ranking factors.

If you deal with Google Places/Google+ Local SEO, then you know David's Local Search Ranking Factors is considered <strong>THE</strong> holy grail for local search. Be sure to read it top to bottom, especially the wise comments from all the experts.

Above is only a static graphic of one part. Head over to MOZ to analyze the interactive chart and read all the comments from the local search experts. They are worth their weight in gold.

<strong>Oh and good luck getting anything else done today!</strong> ;-)

Here is the MOZ blog about about it, if you want to read what folks are saying or want to weigh in.

I admit I have not even had time to analyze it all yet. Rushed to get this out to share with you guys 1st.
I may have comments after I have time to dig into it.

<strong>PS</strong> Huge thanks go out again to David for coordinating everyone’s efforts and compiling all this data for the benefit of small businesses and the local marketing industry!

Any surprises? Questions? Comments?

I thought that reviews being #3 really confirmed my suspicions on their importance. Now to do the review dance without promoting it.

I decided to dive a little deeper into this today because my listings aren't ranking like I'd hoped. Glad to see it's stickied! I hope you all are having a great Monday!
