    I'm building links to my own bricks and mortar website of course. I want to build links to additional places to take over other slots in the SERPs for my keywords.

    So I'm thinking:
    • We get a lot of reviews in Yelp. Going to try boosting our yelp page.
    • Have a listing in a specialized directory. We'll boost that too.
    • If you search our keyword, you'll see either "6 Google Reviews" if they have reviews, or "Google+ Page" if they don't.

    Any other local SEO/review pages that you've found easy to rank locally?

    Local SEO can be summed up as:

    Google maps
    Reviews
    Video/Pictures
    Backlinks

    Maps build credibility and authority as well as reviews. Videos/Pics should be enticing to the customer. Backlinks are good, but don't build a lot of spammy links. These are mostly for domain authority.
