If I write anything that pertains to my market or my buyers or sellers then I use the state, county, city and subdivision if it applies.

Originally you were only supposed to be using this IF it was spotlighting something from that exact Geographical Area !!! But no one policed it !

Peter we use hyper local consitently with our market reports and localism posts. But after I read Kathleen Daniels comment that hyperlocal tabs may not be working I'll have to ask Bob Stewart ??

It is my understanding that the hyper-local does not function any longer.  The options are there when initially posting.  However, after publishing they disappear.  I still use them ... not sure why I do ... old habits die hard I guess.

I don't know for sure if Localism works but I always have the belief that geogrpahy is important so I at least go through to the city and if it is a listing, the neighborhood.

Peter - I typically check hyper local, and will at least select the state. If I write a local post, I will narrow it down to county, and city if it makes sense. However, based on what I am reading, perhaps there is no need if it isn't even working.
