Today I"m writing about local business online search marketing and how Google Places is the best friend to a local business owner who wants to get more customers. First of all there"s been some recent changes from Google this past week on how they show their search findings and information about local businesses.
And of course the other areas such as the Google ads and the organic websites get less. So to get more traffic and customers to your business, it"s important to be listed on the Google Places A through G area on the Google local search page. And the closer to the top of this area, the better.
In my opinion the correct completion of a Google Places page for a business is the very first step to local business online marketing, along with a website – of course.
Google is not currently charging for the local business Places listings. However this does not mean that they will not do so in the future. Originally when Google came up with the concept of Google AdWords, my understanding is that they did not charge for these ads on the Google search page, until later. Now Google makes a very large part of their revenue stream from Google AdWords.
Now for all these reasons if you are a local business owner and want to get more customers, you owe it to yourself and your business to get a professional to set up your Google Places page for your business so that people can find you easier online. Remember, if you don"t do this before your competitors do, customers are going away from you and toward your competitors.
