G+ Local Places Listings

Google Places for Business is now Google+ Local and having a properly submitted listing is a MUST in order to get your business found in local search. Deceptively complex, establishing your business in the Google + Local system takes time (always in short supply for a business owner) and the knowledge of what Google is specifically looking for.

Did you know, for example, that Google places a strong emphasis on business reviews & citations? That it looks specifically for Citations in order to determine local search results from its search engine?

Google+ Local listings dominate local search results – if you’re not found there, you don’t exist as far as a local customer (or potential customer) is concerned. Local searches are now keyed to the specific business locations of those business that are the MOST RELEVANT in Google’s eyes. That means that the top results for the search term show EXACTLY those businesses AND where they’re located!


Try it for yourself – enter in your primary business keyword and your location, for example – restaurant Raleigh NC or lawyer <your town> – and you’ll likely see a list of your top competitors! We know what needs to be done to get you in that top group – give us a call today to learn how we can help.

Did you know that 80% of people use Google as their favorite search engine and that 60% of consumers use Google to do research BEFORE they make a purchase or book a table at a restaurant?

Did you know that 80% of all business likely comes from people who live and work within 5 miles of your location and that 20% of all Google searches now relate to location?

We know…

All of this can be confusing and overwhelming for an already overworked and extremely business owner. That’s where we come in. Let us handle your Google+ Local listing submission and do the legwork necessary to get you found via local search.

Remember that Google isn’t the only search engine – you’ll need to do the same things on Bing! and Yahoo! in order to cover all the bases.
