Whether you have a small local business or a big global one asking customers what they want is a crucial component of growing a business, and one that is often overlooked in the day-to-day hustle of trying to get a product or service out the door. As I was preparing my editorial calendar for the next 90 days I realized I had not really asked my readers what it was they wanted to know about.  So before I start spewing the goods I’d like to ask you all, what is it you would like to know?

Feel free to leave your thoughts and ideas in the comments section.  Thanks!

    Is it better to be a product company or service company in Local search arena?

    I’d like to see you delve more deeply into your IYP experience with analysis of which are worth the time and $.

    Perhaps a series in which you deconstruct the impact of various IYP properties in SERPs, local and other valuable metrics to SMEs

    Thanks for asking 🙂

    Also, I’d like to know more about with what kinds of companies you’re interested in working and metrics relative to that (size, budget, etc).

    Happy New Year

    Decisions, decisions.

    You have some great articles. Keep up the great work. Your blog is addicting.

    I would like more information on what to do when your location is right outside of a major keyword area.

    For instance, say you have a local business that competes with businesses in a large, nearby city.

    You’re at a slight disadvantage of being listed with an address outside of the city, and you lose some of the keyword power of having the “smalltown” address all over your pages and local listings.

    Related to Robert’s question, I’d like to see your recommendations for businesses with multiple locations in the same geographic area.

    (as well as ANY other Google Local thoughts and analysis; I see G putting a TON of energy into this in 2008 & would like to know the game as well as I can before it gets super-competitive)
