The year of “local” has arrived! Google reports that nearly 30% of all queries have some type of local intent. Print yellow pages and newspaper classified ads have all but gone the way of the buggy-whip, and local search engines and online yellow pages providers are growing fast, especially with the explosive increase in smart phone use where people want location-specific info on demand. For any business that provides products or services to a local customer base, now is the time to get ahead of your competition by taking advantage of comparatively low (or no) cost business listings, geo-targeted ads and other marketing tools offered by local search engines. Get your questions answered as to how to connect with customers in your own community.
