Google Local Search Business Listings

  1. 1. 40% of searches have local intent
  2. 2. Google Local Search Business Listings Google Local Business Listings are different than organic or pay-per-click listings. They typically only show up when the user types a service oriented business followed by the city for their search (example: wine shop Mount Pleasant, SC). A large map from Google Maps appears alongside up to ten URLs with a phone number by each.
  3. 3. If you need more than ten listings you can click in “More Results near ‘Insert City’ “ and you’ll be taken to a map with alphabetically lettered red pegs for each register business on Google Maps. It appears Google has recently changed its algorithm for Local Business Listings by only giving the top spots to those feeding the search engine’s ever increasing need for content. It seems over the last year being listed on Google Maps and/or Google’s Local Business Listings is becoming even more important since they are being displayed more often in search with up to ten listings before organic listings even start.
