I'm new to local SEO, but not just plain old SEO. I have read a lot of threads about local SEO, but the only problem is I have nothing to really practice on. I was thinking, would it be a bad idea to contact a fairly new business in my area and ask them if they would let me practice my SEO skills on there business? Of course I would word it so it doesn't sound so bad. That's the only idea I can come up with for getting good, real experience.
