    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.

    Local directories, like ones specifically setup for a city, are a great source of backlinks.These can be chamber of commerce sites, or random business listings for the city. Then of course citations are important from the big sites like Yelp and Yellow Pages.

    You'l probably need more backlinks than that, so mixing in the anchor text is going to help as well. If you were targeting "NY Dentist" as your main keyword, use the following anchor texts (just an example, but get the basic understanding of varying anchor texts).

    NY Dentist
    New York Dentists
    Dentists in NY
    Dentists in NYC
    Dental Surgeon NY

    And then just do the plain ones, such as dentist. If it is NYC, I would probably mix in some of the Boroughs just to appear more natural (probably the one he is located in). I would also mix in the dentist's name for some.

    >

    Aim for the Google Places as well. If it's a local keyword, like that; get it fully optimized, use KML's and GeoSitemaps.

    Hope that helps.
