Local Search

You’ve opened your doors, or have been in business for awhile, set up a website, have good activity on your Facebook business page and are listed in some local directories. Yet, your business still does not appear in Google maps for local searches, either when searching on your business name or on keywords for finding similar businesses in your area.

Appearing in Google local listings, as well as in Yahoo and Bing local, is excellent free advertising, as your business can pop up on the front page for local searches when people are looking for products, services or businesses like yours. If your business isn’t there, then you’re probably losing out to your competitors. Fortunately, this is an easy fix. For Google local, think Google+. You may be confused about what has happened to Google Places and Google Local pages. And what is Google+ anyway? Isn’t it something like Facebook? Not exactly.
