Miriam from Moz reached out and asked me and other leading Local Search experts to weigh in with our best Pigeon observations and advice.

Mike Blumenthal, Mary Bowling, Phil Rozek, Andrew Shotland, Nyagoslav Zhekov and I all contributed insights and advice and then Miriam wrapped up with a handy checklist.

<a href="http://moz.com/blog/pigeon-advice-from-local-seos">Pigeon Advice from Top Local SEOs and a Pigeon-Proofing Checklist - Moz</a>

If you work in Local SEO, chances are you've been fielding tons of questions from clients since Google rolled out the Pigeon update in late July. Need a little extra support providing sound advice in what are still the early days of this development that has caused both organic and local ranking shakeups? Here's your chance to learn what six of the finest Local SEOs on the map are telling their own clients and readers about Pigeon, followed up by a checklist aimed at helping you Pigeon-proof your local presence. Read closely, and I believe you'll find some gems of wisdom from these generous pros!

I really liked reading everyone's perspectives.
Head over to see what everyone had to say.

Great job Miriam and thanks for including me!
