Hi Nikki,

Thanks for sharing Stuart's post. There are a lot of good reasons to think about local SEO, not least of which is the increase in mobile use. When someone is wandering around in your neighborhood looking for a place to have lunch and can't find you easily, it won't help you much that someone half way around the world can Google you to find out you have the best sandwiches on earth. You need to target the local market and that's where local SEO comes in.
