    ah....well, first, do a google for that term ie "local search" -- then read the first say 3 or 4 pages of hits.

    then, search here for that same phrase....and you'll fiind a longer post by me that lists many many blogs/articles on what you should consider as the best methods/tactics to use in local search SEO success....

    Local Listing


    Hi to All


    The following steps you have to useful:

    1.Creating plenty of city- or neighborhood-specific content on your own website to let the search engine spiders know you serve these additional areas.
    2.Registering a PO Box and obtaining a local phone number in the additional towns or neighborhoods you serve.
    3.Claiming your profile on local portals or data providers who only require a business name and phone number, or who will accept a PO Box as an address.
    These steps should ensure that Google Maps picks up your additional “locations” in its web crawl, which you can then claim as local business listings
    it is benefit for you.

    Thanks
    Regards
    Nazar

    # 1 would be to claim your listing

    After that, you need some positive reviews to be posted about your site in google and other user generated content sites.

    There are already a few resources floating around here. Try doing a search and want to help yourself instead of looking for the quick answers. Nobody is willing to help you if you are not willing to help yourself and do some basic research before posting. Also, specific questions usually yield better more informational answers.
