Google, Bing, and Yahoo Local Optimization Services

August 2, 2011

The Internet continues to grow (with over 260 million websites as of August 2011) as having a website becomes the norm, even for small, local businesses. Additionally, more and more people are realizing the benefits of shopping locally (investment into your local community, reduced carbon footprint, etc).

Search engines like Google realize this, and have invested millions in the past few years to provide higher-quality local search results for location-based searches like "restaurant in San Francisco" or "plumber in Reno, Nevada."

If your business relies on local clientele, it is very important to claim and optimize your local business listing on the major search engines Google, Bing, and Yahoo. Chances are your listing already exists--you just need to claim it and improve it.

Claiming your listing is fairly easily--optimizing it takes a bit more work. Do it yourself by finding your listing then clicking the link that says "Claim this Listing," "Edit Info," or something to that effect.

Need an expert to claim and optimize your listing? Contact us today. We make it easy, we don't charge an arm and a leg, and the end result will be more customers walking through your front door.
