When potential customers search the internet, do they immediately see your business? Or do they see the competition?
Today, it’s essential to have high visibility online. Particularly if you’re a small business. To be successful, consumers must find you.
Millions of consumers regularly use online searches to find local information, including local products and services. There are over two billion unique searches with local intent each month on Google. On mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, over 50 percent of all searches have local intent. Research shows 82 percent of consumers have used the internet to find a local business.
Your online visibility is critically important, and it is impacted by something called Local Search.
Local Search is today’s Yellow Pages. It is a prominent part of many search engine results. You’ve probably seen it while using Google.
Local Search occurs when someone types a geographic keyword in a search to find a nearby business. Take, for example, the search “San Diego collision repair”. Local Search will not only deliver the websites of individual businesses, and a map of those located nearby, but also listings for San Diego body shops on popular directory sites such as Yelp.com, Superpages.com and Yellowpages.com.
Claiming your business listings on these internet directories will lead more customers to your door.
By claiming these listings, you will be seen by consumers who utilize online directories. It will also improve your website’s SEO, boosting the position of your company’s website in organic search engine results. In addition, your business will have a greater chance to appear in the prominent Local Search results, and on the resulting map of local businesses.
