SEO’s have been talking about Expertise, Authority, & Trust as the key to organic rankings for years. Over the past 5 years, Google SERPs have become increasingly localized. Local SEO Guide’s monster Local SEO Ranking Factors studies showed that the large amount of overlap between the Organic and Local algorithms.

Key Takeaways:
