Thanks to Rand Fishkin at Moz?

Good one. Thanks Justin! Saw the headline and was hoping someone would share it here.
Look forward to watching later when I can.

But of course the 1st thing that comes to my mind is that yes if Brand includes City or Keywords it makes a BIG impact on Local Search. But I'm not sure if Rand talks about that. He's probably focused on big brand national search I assume.

Anyone watch yet? What do you guys think?
