David Mihm, Director of Local Strategy at Moz will discuss: The Competitive Local Search Landscape
Description: With one out of every three searches--including half of all mobile searches--showing local intent, few disciplines within SEO offer as much opportunity to bring in new customers as Local. Moz's David Mihm will take you through the evolution of the local search landscape -- particularly the evolution of Google's local search algorithm and where it might be headed -- as he documents his strategy for analyzing and acting on local search results.
• The major factors for ranking well in local searches (and why they're important)
• No-brainer fundamentals that every brick-and-mortar business (and the agencies serving them) should implement
• Tactics for auditing your clients' local search presence and learning from their competitors--whether local or national
• Where to increase your local search focus throughout the second half of 2014 and into 2015
