Local SEO is the equivalent of getting your business rank highly in Google Places for targeted keywords instead of the SERPs. People are increasing doing their research globally while making purchases locally. By getting your business listed in Google Places, your business will be more visible to searchers in your local area.
Businesses that are listed in Google Places enjoy more visibility through Google’s various platforms including Google’s web search, Google Maps and Google Mobile, etc. Nowadays, Google Places are integrated into the search results and you will be able to get more visibility by getting your website ranked organically and via Google Places.
Getting listed in Google Places is free. The first thing you should do is to check whether Google has already created one for you. If one is already created, you can verify your ownership to claim the listing. Otherwise, you will need to set up a free Gmail account (create one if you do not have an account) and submit relevant information to create the listing.
The thing to take note is to provide as much information as possible. This will helps to improve your website overall rankings and visibility. Customers’ reviews are also another important factor in determining how well your website will rank in the Google Places listing.
