One of the best ways to get your website well-ranked in top engines like Google and Yahoo is to take advantage of local search. Google Places is by far one of the most effective ways to literally put your business on the map. This search option is separate from the traditional Google Search listings, however the information that you provide to Google Places will also be listed alongside search results when relevant to the location of the user.
Local Search = Local Business
The marketing and design team at Boston Website Design has spent a lot of time researching and developing Google Places listings and can create a solid listing for your business. Google Places provides the opportunity for business owners to take advantage of local traffic. A Google map is included in the local search listing, as well as photos, videos, logos and other important information relating to your business and the products or services your provide.
Today’s consumers utilize local search options when they are shopping for a particular product or service. They use these tools to:
- Compare prices between big box stores, websites and local businesses.
- Find items locally to eliminate shipping costs and wait times.
- Read reviews about products and then purchase them locally.
- Find out more about a local service provider before hiring them to do work.
- Check out local options before traveling outside the area to make purchases or hire professionals.
