So what exactly is a local search???
A local search is when someone searches for a product or a service and includes a city, town or county name in the search query. A typical example of a local term would be “fitted kitchens in Liverpool”
The Yellowpages, trade magazines, newspapers and TV are simply no longer a cost effective means of attracting new customers and leads to your business.
The top search engines which include Google, Yahoo and Bing literally have hundreds of millions of users every day, searching for the very products and services that your business sells. And listen, they don’t care if you have a web site!
If your company appears in the top three or four listings, and you offer the service or product they want and, you get the business.
If your business doesn’t appear, your competitors get the order, it’s as simple as that!
