Question Local Website?

I just read that for local ranking, we need to find local dofollow forums and blogs. Can somebody help me to find Indian local forums and directories.

Please share the links and more information about local ranking. \

Please help

I think local rankings was based mostly at local listings/citations. It's not about having a locally targeted forums but just do it if you think it may help. But as far as I know it's all about having a good reputation in local listing sites, most specially in Google local listing.

If you want to increase your local ranking then you should know some local directories and yellow pages. Which allows you to add your business.

Top 5 Local Search Ranking Factors:

1. Owner Verified Local Profile
2. Optimized Categories
3. Business Website Optimization
4. Volume and Quality of Citations
5. Volume of Reviews

You will easily get listing of local forums on Google search engine. And you can also get help from social websites because there you can promote any type of business website.

You should also use local directories and local listing as well as citations for your local searches improvement.

You need to optimise your pages for local search.
So let's say you were a Plumber in Chelmsford, Essex, your home page title tag would read:

Bob's Plumbers & Plumbing Services in Chelmsford, Essex

So whenever someone was looking for a plumber or plumbing services either in Chelmsford (where you're based), or Essex (which is a broader area), they should find you more easily.

HI,

I would use search operating terms like this:

inurl:".co.in" "business directory"
inurl:".co.in" directory
inurl:".co.in" forum
intitle:"list of" directories
intitle:"list of" forums
Indian "business directory"
"indian forum"
"indian directory"

I would recommend staring by pasting the above into Google and then read up on different type of search operating terms here to create different varations: http://www.googleguide.com/advanced_operators.html

I agree that signing up for directory sites like superpages.com, yelp, google.com places, yellowpages.com, manta.com, etc are great. These citations will help your website too, if you link back to your website in these profiles. But, remember to keep the address EXACTLY the same on your website and ALL profiles you set up on other sites.

You can also use video and other techniques to rank on Google besides your website.
