How Exactly Does Local Search Work and Why is it So Important?
If you have a brick and mortar business the PRIMARY concern and focus should be on showing up on the Google map list for a local search. Too many business owners listen to the bad advice out there and spend their energy and hard earned money on link building. While link building is still important, the #1 thing you can do to get more customers and increase your revenue is getting your business higher on the Google business listing (Google My Business). This is the area that shows up when you search for a local service or product.
Here is how it works:
-Your car breaks down and you need to find a car repair shop.
-You search Google for "car repair shop" or something similar.
-Google uses your computer's location and shows listings near you.
-The listings are shown on a map so you can see which businesses are close to you.
-The listings also contain reviews to help you decide.
-You look at the location and the reviews and then decide which shop to take your car to.
This is how local search works now and why it is absolutely critical that you get it right.

Easy to work with, great results! I'll use Nick again for more projects.
Always a pleasure to work with!
Nick sorted out some key aspects with our Google local page. These included:
1) Google Map not showing our premises
2) Our previous web designer held ownership of our local page, Nick advised me how to get back the ownership. The advice was correct. By the end of next week, we get ownership of our page.
He also cleaned up our Google local pages, making them SEO friendly.
