    Sorry for not coming back to you straight away Rod. I struggle to get logged in here on my main pc. But Im logged in permanent i think on this laptop. Anyhow, that was a brilliant link. Lots to read and digest there.

    What Im seeing with Local is it seems pretty easy to manipulate at present if you know which bit to play with. However, what i also think is Google local seems like Normal SEO was 10 years ago. With Spammy citations and the odd trick here and there you can jump above your competitor. But what worries me with that is, History tells us Google doesnt like such techniques and can easily wipe out spammers over night with an Algorithm tweek or 2.

    Its very tempting to register with every cheap directory out there, but in the long run could it cause you more harm than good.
