About a year ago, I wrote a post about Attacking Local on your Blog. Looking back over the last year, how true has it become? A year ago, most people had never heard of mega online brands like Groupon. And forget about Gilt, Living Social, Buy with Me, etc. Now, they're everywhere.
Even the "old school" media like CBS is cashing in (sort of).
The trend is only going to continue. Now is the time to get on board if you haven't already. There's still plenty of time and space for amazing local content sites to stake major audience claims.
As more and more consumers head to the web for even their most hyper local needs, the SEO value of localized content continues to grow exponentially.
What are you waiting for?
