    I am trying to assess competition and see what tactics they are using for a client of mine.

    Is there a way that I can establish what things the competition are doing for local SEO ranking - ie what citations they have built and so on?

    Dave, recently I found a shocking fact in local SEO by my competitors. They make the network of 20 to 30 local sites and interlink them together almost all of them and ranked no. 1 on almost 90% of keywords.

    I'm really shocked when I seen this f------ strategy also some domains have copy paste content, I don't know what Google is doing. If you wanna see the sample then I send you the keywords and sites but its only in local SEO.

    Citations also working good in getting you a better rank but I also suggest you local sites based private network to get the results in weeks.

    I would recommend a sub to Brightlocal if you're serious about doing stuff with local.
