Hey BHW Community!

Hope you are all doing well! Just dropping a line to share a
wonderful article by SEOmoz that thoroughly discusses the Top 20 SEO Rankings Factors that determine your ranking positions within Google's Local Places listings.

This Article is aimed at and extremely usefully for any niche or business that has a brick and mortar location and is looking to achieve more then just Organic or PPC rankings.

Many Lawyers, Doctors, and other professional service companies leverage local listing since it is both free and positioned high up in the SERP's often even above organic listings!

*FYI - If you already have solid organic rankings then achieving local rankings is much easier due to the existing domain authority your website will have.

Thus I always to suggest for everyone to set-up a
Google Local Places Page first since it is both free and gives you the ability to achieve multiple Page 1 rankings on Google.

Good luck and rank on! :top:
