Local Places-The New Yellow Pages

 

Street-Map-On-SmartphoneIs Your Business Ranked In Local Places?

In years past, letting people know about your business was a simple matter of placing an ad in the yellow pages and making sure your business got listed under the right category. Today, consumers have tossed their phone books to the side and started using their mobile devices to search for local businesses. That’s great news for small business owners; if your business is listed in Google Places, consumer eagerly searching for your products or services can find you in a matter of minutes.

The only catch:if you can list your business on Google Places, so can every single one of your competitors. Unlike the yellow pages, though, you can actually take steps to ensure that potential customers see your business before any of the others.

The Power of Citations

Citations are simply instances where your business name and contact information appear on a website. The more Google “sees” your business address and phone number in a specific format, the higher your business is placed in the local business search results. That’s because citations confirm that your business is legitimate and popular – two major factors involved in determining relevance.
