Local Search Ranking Factors 2012 Robert Charlton msg:4469579 9:13 am on Jun 26, 2012 (gmt 0) David Mihm's Local (Google) Search Ranking Factors for 2012 has recently been published, and once again I'm linking to it as a standard industry resource.... Local Search Ranking Factors 2012 Published June 11, 2012 http://www.davidmihm.com/local-search-ranking-factors.shtml [ davidmihm.com] The survey polls leading local SEOs for relative importance of local search ranking factors in the following main areas... Place Page Criteria Off-Place Page/Off-Site Criteria Website Criteria Review Criteria Social/Mobile Criteria
Results were then tabulated via inverse scoring, where the #1 ranked factor received the most "points" for that question, and the lowest-ranked factor received the fewest points. Thus, the more factors deemed irrelevant by a particular respondent, the heavier the weight given to the factors that they did rank. An impressive survey that's basic reading for anyone seriously interested in local search.
