We're quickly approaching the next LocalU Advanced and we're excited to have Places Scout back as a Gold Sponsor for LocalU Advanced on November 30, 2021!

We talk about Places Scout often, both at Sterling Sky and LocalU. You likely often hear about them on webinars, podcasts, and training sessions with other SEO agencies. There is a great reason for that! Places Scout is, hands-down, the tool that Sterling Sky uses more than any other local SEO tool. If you’re not familiar with them, Places Scout is an all-in-one local SEO software solution designed to save you time and deliver results fast. In a nutshell, they offer advanced tools for keyword research, lead generation, rank tracking, business reputation monitoring & much more in order to save you time and improve your SEO efforts.

The Geo Matrix Ranking Report continues to be a favorite among our team members and clients. These reports show your ranking on a map grid - AND you can download ranking changes in time as a GIF - a super useful reporting and tracking tool. Being able to download a gif for client reports makes this a powerful partner in our local marketing efforts. The gif below shows ranking gains for a therapist’s office. This is a powerful visual in monthly reporting!


Places Scout also offers GMB Radar Change which monitors and notifies you of changes to your Google Business Listing - whether it was initiated by a user or an account manager. This is an incredibly useful time saver if you’re managing multiple accounts, allowing you to monitor changes without manually checking every listing for changes.

Looking for a great sales tool? Check out the GMB Scorecard Report & Widget. You can customize over 70 metrics and create your own scorecard report. Take your report one step further and use your customized report to create a widget for your website designed to help you capture leads and sell Local SEO services!

These are 3 of our favorite Places Scout products we use here at Sterling Sky. Keep your eyes open for a new Brand Audit Report tool coming soon from their talented team as well!

Thanks for your continued support & sponsorship of Local University Advanced, Places Scout!
