Can Your Local Customers Find You Online?
Local search is its own beast. While it has a few factors in common with traditional SEO, many of the more important ranking factors are outside the standard organic arena. With the recent updates to Google Maps and the addition of the Local Carousel, its more important than ever for business owners to understand the intricacies of local SEO given its potential impact to the bottom line.
Did you know?
- There are 2.6 billion local searches across mobile and desktop conducted each month
- 78% of consumers who used a mobile phone for a local business search made a purchase a result.
- 59% of consumers who used a desktop PC for a local business search made a purchase as a result
Despite the positive upside, a 2013 Small Business Survey by Constant Contact found that almost 50% of small business owners have never updated their listings and 70% say they don’t have time to manage the listings.
