    Seems like boosting local business results in google organics is different from boosting other results. like if you google "portland oregon electricians" you get several small results. How would you get yours to the top for that areas keywords? Different? Would gsa work with the low competition? Or maybe boosting a yelp page would work too. Thoughts?

    Is this for your own business or a client?

    I wouldn't use GSA on your company's website or your client's website.

    Boosting Yelp and your social media accounts via GSA would be a good idea though.

    Keep in mind that you can often move up in the local SERPs a lot easier if your on site SEO is local-orientated (i.e. - phone numbers are in place and working, address is somewhere on the page with the city, state, and zip code clearly stated, talking about things on your local business page that are unique to your geographical area). Things like that will help you gradually move up.

    Some high quality links, some social and would be fine. I wouldn't do spam as gsa or fiverr.

    You should really only be using GSA for your tiers 2/3 sites.

    I have GSA for a view months now and i know for a fact that this isn't true, at all. If you have your settings right and you have done a niche targeted scrape, GSA can be very effective to promote local sites, also local SEO is not that much easier as normal SEO, you might think you rank quicker but you have much lesser room in the top 10 spots and fierce competion from sites like yellowpages and angielist.

    But you're right if op is only going to blast it

    First and before all for the local based business create and VERIFY google+ business page.

    Make local citations, if possible related to the region targeted.

    Then may use ser for boosting yelp and social properties as well as the video channel (must have as well)

    If you are thinking to rank for long term - never use GSA-SER to build tier 1 links.

    Do you own or have even used GSA ever, because if you did you haven't used it to its full potential, you can get relevant high PR blog comments and wiki post for your local site, i have one local Dutch sites that is getting about 30/50 high PR low obl blog/wiki links per month and i am ranking #1 and #2 above Google Places.

    So please know what you're talking about before giving these types of advice, cus you can rank longterm with any tool if you know what you're doing, even with a mass spammer as scrapebox.

    Make sure your keywords include local titles or descriptions and so simple manual SEO like hand building web 2.0 links.

    Great thoughts.

    I see different small results when searching for businesses in an area. Heres an example, google is showing small thumbtack listings here-> https://www.google.com/search?num=1...23.0....0...1c.1.32.hp..7.54.2280.NSQNGkMBQ4c

    Are these googles small listings? --> http://prntscr.com/2km504

    Heres a googles first small result for portland oregon electrician, it looks like it has very few backlinks, like it would be easy to compete and make #1 --> http://www.majesticseo.com/reports/...//advantageelectricpdx.com/&IndexDataSource=F

    Is it easy enough to boost those google small results then?
