    I find the local directories to be the best. However, I do come up with problems where the business owner has registered in a few places themselves without keeping the exact address format the same. Try to unravel and correct this is proving a massive problem since Google are so slow to see the updates!

      Kevin, good tip. I had a look at Manta.com for a client and was amazed at the amount of great SEO stuff available. For instance the ability to deep link to pages (other than home page) using different anchor text.
      I also liked the ability it gives to cross link to Social media sites so that Google's "social signlas/proof" is also enhanced for any listing/website.
      Thanks
