    Local SEO is huge and it is also less competitive than regular national SEO. there is money in it, however you want to do it.

    There's huge money in local SEO. Most businesses are local mom and pop shops. That's where the money is and its less competitive.

    I've been learning seo, managed to rank a few sites until now on page #1. I did this only for me, in my city there are plenty of clubs, mom and pops, shops, how should I approach them? Send them an email or just call them?

    Would appreciate a honest answer.

    What do you mean by local seo site? You mean you plan on selling seo services in your city? Local seo is better than ever if you know what you're doing. Just a couple of good clients can replace your income.

    Hey OP,

    If I had some advice to give it would infact be to first target your local clientele and brick and mortar businesses as the competition is much lower on the local level and the clients are more likely to choose you to do their SEO since you are local and able to meet with them face to face if need be.

    In fact some of our highest paying and best clients are local dentists, plastic surgeons and attorney's.

    Hope this helps! :)

    Local SEO is always good But the way has changed a lot..
    Try out G+ Local ranking for you clients .. It varies from Google web but for Local it is a clean winner.

    For kids there is only kiddie money, for professionals there is professional money. It all depends what level you want to do it at. There are countless amounts of towns and cities across the globe, and many of these will have professional businesses where SEO is practically unheard of. Find these companies and you will find money, simple as that.

    Personally, there's still a huge money that you can make in Local SEO. Competition between these business owners are tight but not all of them go and hire people for SEO purposes making it an advantage over other competitors. You just have to know what you are doing. Try doing a little bit of research and go through local directories, get phone numbers basically get leads and call them.
