All of these suggestions are free to implement and will generate very high quality incoming links and a pretty healthy amount of traffic.
You can use your ActiveRain profile just fine with each of these items but you will likely generate the best results with your own Individual Blog. (If you don't have an Individual Blog yet click here to get one.)
Please note that pretty much all of the items below require that you have a free account with the applicable website.
1. Submit yourself to Google Local. Make sure to put in your blog or profile URL in the website entry form field.
4. Create a blog post for everyone of your listings and submit the URL to Google Base.
5. Create a blog post for everyone of your listings and submit the URL to Craigslist.
7. Add yourself to YellowPages.com. The search engines tap this database to populate their Local search results.
(The cow above looks very dominating; similar to the way you will look to your competitors if you implement these strategies. In case you were wondering, that is why I chose it as the picture for this post.)
