Trying to attract local customers with your website? Getting found is getting easier. Major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing! can provide a map to your business when users search for you on the web.

Searching for businesses on the web is an increasingly popular alternative to the yellow pages. For users with smart phones, local searches of Google Maps are a very common way to find a business that meets their needs. As well as helping users find you with a map, search engines can list vital information:
  • Location
  • Business Hours: Including an OPEN sign when users find you during business hours
  • Contact Information
  • Services
  • Photos of your business
  • Your logo
Once you're listed, users searching for you will be able to immediately connect with your business. If they're on a smart phone, they can even pull up your website or call you directly from your listing.

To create a local listing, use the search engine's map function to find businesses in your field. Next, pull up your listing and edit it as the business owner. After an email, phone call or text message to confirm that you represent the business, you can edit your listing. A good starting point is submitting your listing to Bing! and Google.

Or, with our full line of search engine optimization (SEO) services, have us do it for you! Take advantage of our knowledge. We'll create optimized local listings on all of the leading search engines for just $195.
