    Weepingwillow,

    I would say that for local SEO, a good backlink source is from local (and niche related) blogs and directory websites. For example if there was a local retailer they could get links from local bloggers that write about the products/services they sell as well as from local chambers of commerce or business bureaus. Make sense?

    Here is also a post about local business directories for backlinks you may find useful,

    Best,

    Listings on Google and Yahoo local are important even if you don't have a real location.

    Well, of course a link profile of only 2 types of links wouldn't look too natural, but to choose two to be my heavy hitters...

    1) high pr contextual for my main keywords
    2) local sites for my brand name and url links - classifieds, local newspaper (try writing a useful article that a small local newspaper would want to publish online), local directories, of course, chamber of commerce, business groups, etc.

    After that i would go with niche forum signature links, blog comments with business name and personal name (same as google author) as anchor text, and then lots of social activity in local and niche sphere.

    Create some videos and audio (mp3) related to your site and publish them to various audio and video publishing sites, put link wherever allowed, it will create backlinks for your site plus chances of getting direct traffic from video itself are also there.

    Thanks

    Or even easier way, look up where your top competitors have their backlinks from and then try to get your backlinks/company mention to come from those sources as well. Programs like ahrefs, ibacklinkpro, majestic SEO, or even searching for backlinks using Google, Alexa websites will help you to discover your competitor's backlinks, referrals.

    Search for blogs, forums, websites, from your local area. See if your local newspaper has a website and see if you can guest post an article about your niche there

    Thank you
    Alright this are my own personal experience am going to share with you that gave me success.
    First you might want to include the region or city your targeting in your html codes (my best practice is in the image "alt")
    This work well for a local seo competition for a keyword you can easily rank on due to low competition locally.
    Next step will be to go to google web master tool and select region and place your local city same with the bing master tool
    so they give you more prfrence when searching locally.
    Finally when doing link building make sure you target High PR sites locally for link and if its a forum make sure it is your local forum
    that has got a good alexa ranking.
    This helped me very well for local seo (make sure the links anchor text are your keywords)
    do this correctly and consistently and make sure you have already optimize your web page content for this, it may take you 6mths to get
    a good ranking globally but your local ranking will move up in no time.
