    Hey All,

    I have been doing Google Local for GP for some time now, nothing new, Penguin did not hit any of my GP sites. Like everyone, we are using citations, the better the citation (Google feels with proper authority and that pings back at you) the faster you climb to the 1st page - 7 pack spot.

    We were able to get a MEDIUM/MEDIUM HIGH keywords for one of our clients with only 150 citations that formulated great. This worked well for us, and I highly recommend you save these and give it a shot, no matter how you look at it, this is going TO HELP YOU!!!!

    If you do see a surge reaction as I did on this new business listing, please share it with us here, I want to see if the combination of these 150 citations is TRULY a better combination of the other 240 lists i have where each of these lists contains between 130-260 citations..... in other words, trying to figure out if this is the MASTER list to be used :)

    Please DO NOT abuse it!! Use it to your benefit, and do it BY HAND!!! Watch the PINGS back at you......

    Would appreciate +Rep and Thanks if you find this useful.

    Thanks for this post. Before I post a thread about it,
    what would be the best Keyword research tool to
    used in determining competition and exact local monthly
    searches?

    I know The Google keyword tool is great, but I need
    something more accurate! Thanks :)

    Thanks for sharing your experience. Do you know if its still possible to get a GP for a website that isn't actually located in the city?


    Is there anyway I could receive this PM as well?

    Citations are no where near as important as they used to be. An update or 2 ago Google actually said they are counting standard backlinks more and google reviews for Google places and reducing the value of citations. However I still use them so good post OP.

    6-8 weeks but really depends on the competition of the keywords.

    Derek,
    The Local Ranking Algorithm is generally centered around the regular on-page and off-page factors attributed to traditional or organic seo, in addition to an all important factor around local business citations. What that means is that you need to go to the above links and 'cite' your business info there.

    From the 1st day I started found SEO (about 8 years ago) until the very day today, I continue to learn.

    Thanks for the list! I currently have a client with 11 locations and creating citations for each one has been so time consuming, but I realize the importance of it.

    Do you use any review services to build up the quality of each citation? I would love to have multiple reviews on each one.
