Here is my question: Is being listed in a local Chamber of Commerce business directory good for local SEO? I was talking my local chamber's membership director and it occurred to me my that it might be a good idea. I know Google looks down on link farms, but given that most chambers are accredited groups, I would think it would be a good thing. Just looking for some possible feedback.
I also asked this question on twitter and got this response:
ME: Question: Is being listed in a local #ChamberofCommerce business directory good for local #SEO? #LocalSEO
Frank J. Kenny @FrankKenny: A link from the chamber's website to your is always a good idea.
ME: @FrankKenny That's what I thought, just curious and wanted to make sure Google didn't see it as a link farm.
Therefore with what Frank said on twitter and @closetnoc said in the comments above I am going to say yes it is a good thing.
Frank J. Kenny @FrankKenny: Not at all Chad. Good, solid, link juice.
