Local search ranking factors are those components that add to the rankings of a local business. It’s offered as an annual report used to generate identifying factors proven to play a major part in local search engine rankings. The report is made using results from an annual survey of expert local SEO’s and was created by David Mihm.
I have been working with local businesses as a Local SEO specialist since 2010 and as a Google My Business Product Expert (formerly called Top Contributor) since 2016. I write about GMB suitable for most folks, business owners included.
When not working for clients, I volunteer with the local businesswomen’s network, volunteers on Google’s forum, and the Local Search forum.
Away from the keyboard I’m a very busy mother with two boys, nine chickens, two cows, three sheep, a cockatiel and a stupidly happy dog.
