    Open discussion.. What do you guys think the top 5 or 10 or so review sites are to check when working with a local business?

    I think Yelp, G+ and Trip Advisor are top. If they're a restaurant, Urban Spoon. Any thoughts?

    Angie's List? Yahoo Local? Insider Pages? Citysearch? Consumer Search? Facebook?

    hmm, you recommended Consumer Reports and BBB.... meanwhile I don't think you can add reviews to them, and consumer reports is for products, not businesses. Do you even do ORM or am I missing something in these 2?

    I've never heard of Home Advisor, this is a new one for me.

    Take a look at this
    Code:
    http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/2014/09/losing-your-health-insurance-what-to-do/index.htm
    You can set up contacts with an author there and have him post a news related article, it can be done and is done.

    About BBB, get yourself accredited

    Like you said, it also depends on the niche.

    Just a few random ideas below:

    G+, Yelp, Tripadvisor are no doubt the most popular.

    Urbanspoon = Restaurants
    RateMDS = Medical
    Dealerships = Cars.com, Edmunds.com etc.
    Construction/Handyman work = Homestars

    Social media = Facebook, Foursquare

    Directory = Yellowpages, Insiderpages, Citysearch etc.
