Overlooked Local SEO Posts of Early 2014

Like my post? Please share!

The first 4 months of 2014 brought some big posts that got plenty of attention in the “local” space (and for good reason).

But then there were some great posts that didn’t get as much fanfare.  Not that they were ignored; I just think they’re widely useful.

Here are some posts worth reading:

Why You Should Check Facebook and Foursquare Frequently for Duplicates – Nyagoslav Zhekov

3 Local SEO Secrets Learned Over Time – Mikel Zaremba

7 Deadly Sins of Responding to Negative Reviews – Gradiva Couzin

Checking Google Places Penalties – Ben Roland

New Way to Measure How you Stack up to Competitors on Google Plus: View Counts – Joy Hawkins

Of the above, do you have a favorite?

Any other “overlooked” posts you’d recommend?

  1. Phil, much love for the mention!

    And may I add, the piece by Ben Roland is extremely useful! I can’t say enough when it comes to the time it has saved me using his handy little hack to check out penalties.

    I wish I had something to add to the list but sadly I do not.

    Thanks again and see you around.

    • Hey, my pleasure Mikel. Thanks for the great post.

      And yeah, that post by Ben Roland is very handy. Someone should do a follow-up about clients who recovered from penalties that the SEO-er discovered with that hack.

  2. Hey, thanks for including my first Whitespark post, Mr. P!

  3. I have bookmarked this page (http://www.localseoguide.com/everything-is-awesome-in-local-seo/) where Andrew Shortland shares his presentation from SEMPDX’s Searchfest. It’s definitely worth a look 🙂

  4. I tweeted “3 Local SEO Secrets Learned Over Time.” What a great piece. Thanks!
