What is Google+ Local Wizard and how does it work?

Mathew Coghlan -


Google+ Local Wizard (GPW) is an SEO tool that lets you quickly assess the status of your Google+ Local profile and how it compares to your top online competitors.

The tool works by comparing the details of your Google+ Local profile against your top 5 Google + local competitors. It compares a number of important ‘Local SEO’ factors (e.g. citations) as well as content on your profiles such as number of reviews, review ‘Score’, photos and categories selected. The tool presents this information in an easy to read table so you can quickly compare your business to competitors and see what you need to do to outrank them.

Google+ Local currently works in the USA, UK, Canada & Australia. We will roll it out to other countries as we extend our toolset, but we don’t have firm plans/dates for when this will happen.
