Think you’re up on the latest developments in local SEO?
One year ago we asked you to test your local SEO knowledge with the Local Search Expert Quiz
. Because the SERPs are changing so fast and (according to our latest
Industry Survey ) over 42% of online marketers report spending more time on local search in the past 12 months, we’ve created an updated version.
Written by local search expert Miriam Ellis , the quiz contains 40 questions designed to test both your general local SEO knowledge and your industry awareness. Bonus? The quiz takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
Ready to get started? When you are finished, we’ll automatically score your quiz.
