Local search engine optimization (local SEO), also called local link building, refers to optimizing your websites or web pages for better local exposure in the search engines. Local SEO is like organic SEO in that it also is a method affecting the visible presence of a site or a page in the search results of a particular search engine, often called the "organic" or "unpaid" results. Organic search results are those that are generated by the engines based on natural user searches for a given keyword/phrase. These natural searches are what your organic optimization efforts are aimed at.
