    Hi, I am a freelance web designer looking for someone with Local Search Experience to help expand business.

    How can you help me? Other than submitting to the Local Biz Sections of Google/Yahoo/Bing and signing up for Yelp/etc, what else can you do?

    PM me if you prefer to keep your methods secret with an estimate quote. Ideally would like page 1 Google SERP but interested to hear what other benefits you could deliver.

    Thanks!

    Get a keywords rich domain preferably with the name of the city that you want to target. Have phone numbers and real address of your business and register for Google Maps. Ranking for local search wouldn't be too hard for you.

    Submit to directories like Yahoo and Business.com

    Thats all White Hat, but for Black Hat, I guess you can just look around on this forum and learn the techniques and try them at your risk.

    I got my SEO biz site to #1 in (large area) local search in the UK. Obviously I am the local SEO expert :D

    But seriously, if you need any help hit me up, I could replicate what I did for my site quite easily if you were willing to do some of the grunt work.
