    Does anyone have good intel on methods to rank business review listing websites for local SEO clients? I have some local clients with biz review listings, but want to rank them in Google for their local terms. Thanks!

    High quality backlinks and good on-page SEO. Be careful not to use any form of blackhat seo on the websites of your clients though.

    Well, do you know about anchor text diversity for sites like Yelp? Does it matter or do you treat it like any other $ site?

    Because Yelp and similar are authority sites you can usually get away with more targeted anchor text. However, it's still a good idea to diversify for long term survival.

    What about simply anchor text using biz name or branding and not using any main target keywords such as City Dentist ?? And do the onsite SEO for the target keywords? I don't think using the main target keyword phrase as anchor text would really have any big value?? Seems they will display the listing related to the search if it's got good backlinks and onsite SEO? Thoughts?
