    How do we find out which keywords get local listings in google. This is very valuable, and we know about plumbers, dentists, but is there a listing somewhere that shows more obscure niches?

    Im using local directories/yellow pages (mostly online) to find my niches.. look around in the download section, there are a lot of cources on methods for niche discovery. just use your brain to see if it is a "local" niche

    When you say you're scouring yellow pages, what exactly are you looking for? Silly question but small amount of listings/little competition, etc?

    I look at google results. Some keywords that I think should be localized are not, some are. So would be great to have a 'local scrapebox'...

    @OP just think outside the box and try to search something a regular costumer would search for. Or use a keyword scraper.

    Jericho, thanks, that is a great list!

    necro, the problem is if you search for "auto dealer" it is localized, but "best auto dealer" is not. So it is a hit and miss thing. One could do a keyword scraper, is there one that detects GP, or we have to write one (not hard to write in php). I was hoping there is something out there, otherwise the longer tail keywords are a bit hard, but certainly can start from the root keywords like provided by Jericho.

    [edit] I suppose one could focus on the root words, and then do a google keyword tool run and find related keywords, and then go through them one by one to see which ones are GP'ed. I was hoping there is a specialized keyword scraper tool for that (I think there are some paid ones...).

    Any software outthere to Bulk search for These keywords + city? Ive been doing it in bulk in Google Places, have a spreadsheet laid out lol but I would like a bit more info about the competition [not the CPC, but how many sites are ranking, what the #1 sites r etc].
    Cheers

    Google Places Takeover (can find it here, or find it on the web) has a review of all such tools. They are not free, but accomplish what you asking and more -- for example citations is a big thing, and they gather that info.
