One can’t help but notice the amount of Google Local listings being shown before the main organic search listings whenever a search is made containing a geographical location. If your business would benefit at all from geographically targeted searches then you should get it listed on Google Local.
This is an excellent way to gain a good listing for your site without hours of SEO or spending loads on PPC. It’s certainly not hard to do, costs absolutely nothing and the results are really quick in most cases (as long as you choose to register with phone verification).
Of the businesses I’ve signed up most have received targeted visitors from their listing. If they hadn’t been listed they wouldn’t have received those visitors.
Fill in all the boxes on the signup and ensure a few of your key search terms are scattered around in the description and then go through the verification process. Before you know it you could be dominating the top of the search results pages for your business type in your town.
