Optimization for Local Search Maps
Leading the way to localizing business and service search online, Local Search Maps help users identify the nearest locations of businesses and services within the Google and Yahoo map search application. Powered by the same methods that make Search Engine Optimization and PayPerClick Search Engine Marketing so effective for general search and advertising, you can make use of your web presence to identify your business locally. Rank highly based largely on the users search location and a little bit of web savvy provided by myhosting.com Search Engine Optimization.
Need an example? Suzy is looking for a local sweet shop to find her good friend Sharon’s favourite tarts. She goes to Google and searches for sweet shop tarts near London and immediately the nearest locations to her are identified based on her input. More so (when properly setup) the phone numbers and addresses are right at hand for those top ranking spots so she can easily reach the shop at her leisure and ensure she can get those tarts.
A properly optimized business listing localized in this way expands online search opportunities for small business on a whole new level. Suddenly you’re not competing against international providers for top spots in online search. In fact, the only competition is as it used to be, your location. Your local audience is at your fingertips the way it should be. Why someone looking for fresh baked goods would want to find the most popular website in the world rather than the most popular location closest to them simply doesn’t make sense.
