Can Your Local Customers Find You?
Google recently reported that more than 43% of searches have “local intent”. That means a Google searcher was looking for a business, restaurant, activity or landmark in their local area. The percentage is even higher for searches conducted on a mobile device.
Google Built a FREE Website for Your Business. Really.
All the major search engines have taken steps to make sure that local businesses have an opportunity to display important information on their businesses in the search results. Google went so far as to “create” websites for millions of businesses with their business name, address and phone number. Business owners can locate and “claim” these listings and then build them out with additional details that will make their businesses easier to find in a search.
