I don’t have time to go to conferences any more and don’t normally cover them. But I sure wish I could have been a fly on the wall at all the SMX parties last night, listening to all the convos Local SEO pros had about all the Google changes. I understand the changes and what’s coming more than most I think, after my meeting with Google last week, but would love to have heard all the scuttlebutt, conjecture and strategies that were discussed.

The Hardcore Local SEO Tactics session at SMX Advanced 2012 in Seattle today had 3 well known local SEO pros on the panel.  Mike Blumenthal, Mike Ramsey and Michael Dorausch. I’m sure all 3 had to madly juggle their well prepared presentations at the last minute to add some points about the new Google+ Local changes.

Here is the only live blogging coverage I’ve found so far and some good tips are shared in the presentations. Will add more later if I find it.
