    Because Serpbook sucks with local listings. They literally just showed all my rankings disappear the other day which scared the shit out of me and I checked manually and I was still there, just dropped a little. It also shows incorrect positions. For example it's showing one of my clients as #2 in the local results for one of the keywords and when I check manually they are #10. Serpbook is great for organic results, but not for local.

    Any recommendations for a good LOCAL serp tracking service / program?

    On a side note - is the below 6 actions still the major things you have to do to get ranked locally? Did anything change in the last year?
    1) Building new citations / online directories
    2) Fixing already existing citations / online directories to make sure the name address and phone number is consistent
    3) Optimize your website for local SEO (schema, NAP in header & footer, good keywords, meta description & title, heading tags, link to Google+ page)
    4) Optimize your Google+ page (add pictures, posts, header image, logo, fill out profile completely, etc.)
    5) Build links to citations
    6) Get online reviews on local directory websites as well as your Google+ page.

    Am I missing anything with the above list?

    Okay thanks. Bit pricier than Serpbook. $5 is only for 10 keywords. However I just bought it to test it out. I'll report back with results.

    With micrositemasters you can track based on city or zip code for US.

    2nd option you might wanna look into is
    brightlocal.com
    Get a free trial.
    After the free trial is over, I believe it is $20 a month for local search (100 keywords).

    Plus you get a bunch of other local SEO tools with the $20 package.

    I like brightlocal because it does a lot of other cool stuff for local, not just tracking local ranking.

    I use SEMRocket, you can find their Rank Tracker here. I found it the most accurate out of Ranktrackr, Moz, Positionly & SEScout.

    They have a Free 7-Day Trial, so you could take advantage of that if you would like.
