David Mihm is the Director of Local Search over at SEOmoz. David published a video today that expanded on the the idea that Google has been aggressively improving the way their Local SEO algorithm ranks businesses within Google Search and Google Maps. The information is rather basic – he doesn’t exactly go into the details of “how to get your business ranked #1 in Google Maps”, but he does leave hints.

- Citations + Location Data
- Social identity (Google+)
- Offline signals (Foursquare check-ins)
These are the main bullets David drives home at the end of the video. Watch the video below to get the real deal.
