    Start by making sure your on page optimization is perfect. Once that's in order build natural links to your site with citations from yelp, google places and others.

    Google places is a great starting point, assuming you have access to a physical address.

    You'll also not want to forget about bing, yahoo, and ask. Yellow page listings are free, I think... just to register.

    Don't forget about on page optimization either. Throw in h1 tags for "niche town" or whatever keywords you're searching for. IMO the best method is on page SEO, first.

    Brian,

    A couple of the most effective things you can do is get inbound links from local relevant websites and to target localized keywords. Town or state + keyword. If you are looking for local traffic, research how those individuals are using terms to find local products/services then target those terms.

    Here is a pretty good local SEO check list,

    Hope that helps you,

    Good thinking for local ranking and also add google local, yahoo local and bing local. Local directories, yellow pages and white pages.

    Use your existing business contacts : today's online world building links is all about building relationships. If you've already achieved a degree of success offline, then you'll have built plenty of relationships already.
    Make your blog something special : If you haven't got a blog, get one right now. If you have got one, come up with a content plan to make the most of it.
    Build contacts with the local press : Getting online press coverage is a great way of building valuable links.

    i agree with you mate. Before doing Onpage, keyword research is important. For every keyword the targeted location should be given. With appropriate meta tags will be perfect. And then powerful local directories according to your niche. Hope it helps you.
    All the links are promoted by Social Networking Sites to reach your appropriate audience.

    Ranking your business in the local 7 pack in Google Places is going to be the best thing you can do for local seo. There are several factors that will help you rank and it is way too much to get into in a quick reply to a post. I recommend heading over to Youtube and searching for Paul James and watch his Google Places training. You will learn a lot.
