It would be very interesting to hear more of your thoughts on how to use this tool. Some locally based ideas would be great to hear. Nobody seems to focus on local link building techniques. Thanks for the information.

Hi, if you search for any term under the Blog filter, you can find a good number of local link building opportunities. For example, if you type in Halloween in San Francisco, and look under the Blog Filter, you will find a whole slew of other related blogs. If you have a good blog post of your own, you could connect with the other bloggers and see if they would be willing to give you a link on to their blog. Most of them would be happy to engage in some sort of a mutually beneficial way.
