New Local SEO Tool for Competitive Analysis – LocalSearchToolkit

Check out this new tool to help you with your Local SEO process. This week my guests are Mike Belasco and Mary Bowling from SEOverflow. They have created a tool that saves you a ton of time in the Local SEO process.

The first step when you get a new Local SEO client is to look at Google 7-Pack for their area to see who is ranking and how competitive it is.

Drilling in to the different Google Places Page listings shows you which citation and review sources that the top listings are using to rank well.

This is just the start, and it involves a fair amount of manual effort that Local SEOs are all too familiar with.

Never Fear, LocalSearchToolkit is Here!

Well, the fine folks at SEOverflow have come up with a new tool that automates this process – just type in your keyword phrases and it gives you a full report, including:

  • Who is in the 7-Pack
  • What their citation sources are
  • Where they have online reviews
  • What categories they are using
