    Very informative read. I find information and advice regarding Local SEO very scare. The abundance of guides, tips and information on standard SEO is far greater than anything available on Local SEO – particularly on the exact influence of Local rankings. Great research – thanks for sharing.

    Great overview of the data and top steps needed to build up your local search visibility.

    It’s also important for local businesses to continue to public unique quality content on site and in social media.

    “Consistent NAP” is the biggest positive factor in my experience. Good read, but it would have been nice to download an actual local checklist.

    Can you recommend a local downloadable SEO checklist?

    Either way, great article Wesley ;)

    Really great information, but some not-so-good news for marketers who enlist tracking numbers as a way to show clients the results of their marketing ROI and where leads are being generated. It would be nice to see some reasonable reconciliation by Google there.

    My clients are solicited every week with “SEO boost” service offers from various third parties that include nothing more than creating duplicate websites and duplicate Google Local pages, so it’s nice to have some data to show them that this is not a sound SEO strategy. I was surprised to see that duplicate websites are absent from the list of the biggest negative ranking offenders– is this still a notable factor for negative rankings?

    I work with local clients and agree NAP consistency is a massive
    factor that can severely help or hurt a listing depending on how well it
    is done.

    Awesome info! So many Small Business owners can benefit from this article and kill many assumed fears. Local SEO and Internet Marketing is the life line to their marketing and yet so many run from it.
