Here are my choices for 8 of the best local search engine optimization posts for 2009. What do you think? Do these local sem posts cut the mustard?
Framework for Local Search by David Mihmorandum
Local Search Ranking Factors 2009 by Andrew Shotland
Aleyda Solis has a fabulous post which is phenomenal in its coverage of local seo ranking factors and small business marketing.
How to Do Local SEO for Your Website in Five Minutes or So by Tad Chef on Andrew Shotland’s Local SEO blog has great tips for web video.
Matt McGee’s post about Launching a New Small Business Website on an affordable budget of $3000 is quite good. (I think he should have added some wise caveats about pay per click marketing and management, but otherwise a fantastic article on small business marketing and social media strategy) Lisa Barone has similar, but not as specific advise at Outspoken Media.
61 Pre-SEO Campaign Questions is pretty extensive (I think I would cull it down, but is helpful for those thinking about the pros and cons of outsourcing SEO work)
This post by Bill Slawski at SEO by the Sea about small business marketing is entertaining as he wraps it around his passion for blues music.
I would also check out Matt McGee’s favorite search engine optimization blog posts of April 2009, which includes Blumentals explanation of tracking results for local SEO campaigns with Google analytics.
As an Oldie but Goodie Bonus: My earlier comprehensive post aboutlocal seo tips and tactics is quite extensive and a virtual checklist of web citations to pursue.
Do you have a favorite local SEO, big brand SEO, or social media optimization post from 2009?
