A new, in-depth study from Local SEO Guide into local ranking factors has thrown up some surprising results. We get a walk through the findings from Local SEO Guide's own Dan Leibson and Andrew Shotland, who explain what local businesses with an online presence need to be doing to make sure they rank highly for local queries, and which local SEO ranking factors matter most.
Andrew Shotland is a SEO consultant currently working with Local SEO Guide to help clients with anything from large media sites to ecommerce. With a past in television where he launched the first live web chat for the Showtime Network (from Mike Tyson's first match after his release from prison), he then moved to website optimisation. Similarly, Dan Leibson is also a respected SEO specialist. With a passion for SEO, social media and data, Dan has been in search for nearly 5 years and has a Google Analytics Individual Qualification.
