There have been so many great topics at the Local Search Forum & around the web that get buried. I know many of you suffer from info overload, so here is the latest roundup.

This one is a partial Daily Digest, not just weekly best picks. So it gives you some idea of how much info you are missing, if you are not subscribed or reading the forum daily. (However I don’t think I can keep up with posting daily digest here on the blog, so this is just likely going to be a test or teaser.)
