I have a local website that I am building backlinks for and I need to know if local backlinks are important for a local site, or do I just need the city name in the anchor text of my backlinks? I am aware of citations for Google Places, but I am mainly talking about the main results. If I am targeting "New York Dentists" should I be getting local backlinks from New York? Or just putting "New York" in the anchor text of my backlinks? This is really important so thanks to anybody who can help me out.
