Conferences are always a great way to pick up the latest news and top tips from the experts. Pubcon has a Local Search Conference this year. Carrie Hill is liveblogging Pubcon over at the SEM Clubhouse and has coverage of 2 of the Local sessions from yesterday.

Here is a great presentation from Matt Marko ‏@BackyardMktg with interesting insights.

So far I have not found any other posts about local from the event. Maybe more will show up, and if so I'll add here. Or if you find any, please post below.
I'm sitting outside the sessions right now and from yesterday my favorite local presentation was from Ben Douglas (spoke right before Matt Marko). He emphasized the importance of having unique, locally-relevant content several times, which is emerging more and more as something that Local SEOers lack.
Oh you're there right now David? Cool!

Let is know if you pick up any other good Local tidbits and thanks for posting!
