Local SEO - "Citations & Linking": by Chris Warden Backlinks are the lifeblood of non-local SEO.

Local SEO - "Citations & Linking": by Chris Warden Backlinks are the lifeblood of non-local SEO.

Reaching out to local bloggers is another great way to get mentioned. If your city doesn't have a directory of local bloggers, a social media and/or blogging club, or something of that nature, take your search to Twitter. Start searching for your city, and checking the profiles of the people posting about it. You'll start to find that many of them have blogs with local intent, and those are the people you reach out to. Offer them a coupon to try your product or service. What you're trying to do here is earn their business, and see if they write about it. What you don't want to do is buy placement on their site. Not only is this a no-no, but it can backfire with you receiving a negative write-up for trying to "buy" a positive review.
