On day 1 of SMX East, I’ll be moderating the “What’s New With Local Search Marketing?” panel. On that panel, among others, will be Eric Stein, Director of Local Markets for Google. Rather than describe the litany of standard tools and options for marketers, Eric has offered to answer my questions in the presentation.
Instead of my questions, how about your questions?
This is an opportunity to ask Google about all things local. The basics everyone knows so we want to get at more novel, obscure or vexing issues.
I cannot guarantee that all questions would be answered. For example Google typically won’t talk about future products. And Eric told me he won’t “reveal the algorithm” (we’ve got Mike Blumenthal’s SMX Local-Mobile presentation for that). But Eric is genuinely open to questions and it makes for an interesting opportunity for the audience.
Please send your top questions about local marketing on Google, whatever they may be, to me at greg [dot] sterling [at] gmail.com and we’ll get the consensus favorites to Eric for his presentation.
