My guest on this week’s episode of Suds & Search is Claire Carlile, Local Search Expert at BrightLocal and Independent Digital Marketing Consultant at Claire Carlile Marketing.

For years now, Claire has been one of the most popular Local SEO experts in the world. She’s presented at many SEO conferences including Local U, Whitespark Local Search Summit, Brighton SEO, and SMX London.

Her work for BrightLocal has been extraordinarily good. If you like this episode be sure to check out the BrightLocal Academy. You can take courses taught by Claire as well as other Local SEO experts like Amanda Jordan and Niki Mosier. They’re really well done and at least at the time this episode airs, it’s totally free.

Claire is also a frequent blogger on the BrightLocal site. I’m going to start our conversation by asking her about a recent blog post about how to manage store hours in GBP and the myriad ways this can go wrong.

Grab something cold to drink and join me for a conversation with Claire Carlile. We’ll talk about her contributions to the Local Search Ranking Factors study, we’ll talk about her favorite client, Folly Farm, and we’ll spend a little time discussing Welsh cakes.
