SEOmoz PRO just FINALLY launched a major update that added local (Google Places) results to their rank tracking solution and it looks like it has some pretty cool features. I have not tried it yet since I’m not a member. Have wanted to join, but held off since the tool previously didn’t feature local results. I’ll probably give it a spin soon.
Read the full post and see the screenshots over at the SEOmoz blog.
We’ve just shipped phase one of our support for Universal Search results, which includes data about local (a.k.a. places) results in Google search results. Whether it’s a 7-pack or a blended result, if you care about local SERP results, it’s often a pain to find out where you stand. We aim to help.
Be sure to also check out my Google Places Software & Free Local SEO Tools page which has other dynamite tracking solutions for Google Places.
Sorry I haven’t been blogging. I have one new REALLY hot resource I want to share but I don’t want it to get spammed to death or over-used, so am trying to decide if I should do a private post and only allow trusted marketers to view. (I know some major spammers/scammers read this blog, so need to be careful about sharing precious little known resources.) But that would require me having a list (which I should, but don’t) or individually approving people that request to view, which is extra time and hassle I don’t have. So chewing on that one. (Maybe I need to bite the bullet and get my Places forum launched, that way I could have a private member only section for hot tips like this???) Any ideas on how best to handle?
Now that I’m a Google Top Contributor I’ve also been spending all free time helping people on the Places forum, which cuts into blogging time. But once I get re-organized and get a couple client projects finished, hopefully I can do a better job of “keeping all my balls in the air!” (That comment’s for you Mike!)
