This informative post by Casey Meraz over on Moz, is jam packed with great ways to get out of that Local SEO rut

Stop the Local SEO Tunnel Vision & Think Beyond the Basics

Almost any post you read online pertaining to local SEO is quick to point out that you need the basics, such as a strong citation profile with no duplicates, quality links, and some local on-page optimization. But does it really stop there? Should it stop there? Or should we be looking at the signs Google?s been giving us? It's no secret that Google has been moving towards taking on more organic signals. What does the future really hold for us and how should we be advising our clients?

Above is just a snippet, so head over to read Casey's advice on:
  • The basics of Local SEO.
  • Traditional organic ranking factors.
  • Citations and links.

Thanks Casey for the great tips!

What do you think? Are these tips that you can use for yourself/your clients?
