My guest on this week’s episode of Suds & Search is Darren Shaw, CEO and Founder of Whitespark.

Darren is a man who needs no introduction. He is an in-demand conference presenter, a tireless educator, and one of the most important voices in Local SEO. Darren is also a must-follow on social media, where his short videos are fun and chock-full of actionable information.

Darren is also the organizer of the Local Search Ranking factors study. The Local Search Ranking Factors study is a study based on interviews with the top local SEOs in the world about how Local Search is changing each year. The release of the Local Search Ranking Factors every year ushers in a ton of interest from anyone working in Local SEO.

I’m going to ask Darren about the study and get his own impressions about where Local SEO is headed.

Grab something cold to drink and join me for a conversation with Darren Shaw. We’ll chat about how he organizes the Local Search Ranking factors survey, I’ll spend a little time chatting about how Local SEOs are using AI, and he’ll hand out some killer tips to get more positive reviews.
