Google, Yahoo and Bing Local Listings
According to Google, 20% of all searches are relative to location. In March alone, 14.3 Billion searches were conducted through Google, which means nearly 3 Billion search queries contained local terms.
With that said, it is important that your business take advantage of the opportunity to be listed within Google Places, Yahoo Local and Bing Local Listings. Your local customers already search Google, Yahoo and Bing for the products and services that you offer. By creating local business listings within these three platforms, you can be confident that your business will be easily found online. These platforms will also complement your current search engine optimization strategies.
While each local listing platform is different, they all provide unique features that will allow you to add photos and videos, custom service categories, brands that you sell and coupon options that make your business stand out among your competitors.
More and more people are searching online for local businesses, so it is important that your company have a presence.
