    Register a business with Google Places, verify the business location.

    If it's just a website with no fixed physical locations, perhaps get citations anyways, as the majority of the ones I tried had no verification process.

    I don't know how else to get local results otherwise.

    In my experience, .info is harder to rank than .com and .net. I recommend country extentions, like .co.uk or .de for local websites.

    Domain is domain, it's the aftermath that matters..

    .Info just isn't appealing to people that's all.

    .info = information, .net = network, .com = commercial.
    Get your contextual domains right and you're some way to knowing SEO.

    info sucks...there may be exceptions but info should not be your option to go with.

    According to google, ALL generic extension are the same.

    Info is treated the same than com or net. here is the proof

    If you started with a dot info and if it starts working, go ahead focus on your link building not on your domain name.
