Google+ Local OptimizationLocal searches now outnumber non-local ones. So, it's critical to optimize your online presence to improve your local ranking as soon as possible.
We set up and maintain your Google+ Local account (Google’s local business directory), and create citations monthly on local business sites across the Internet in order to increase the visibility of your Google+ listing in local search rankings. We also create a rich “authorship” snippet to go along with your organic website listing.
Why Google+ Local Is So Important:
1. Google results are becoming more localized.
These days, Google will track a web searcher’s IP address and deliver results in the immediate vicinity. For example, type “lawyer” into Google and run a search. Notice that it automatically returns listings of offices near you.
2. Google+ Local listings often supersede regular organic listings on search result pages.
Google+ Local listings are prominent to the point of pushing down organic website listings for certain types of searches. Therefore, if you are not on the system at all, you have no chance of being listed at the top.
3. The Google+ social network is directly related.
While Facebook is still the undeniable champion of the social media space, Google+ has been quietly building a loyal client base over the past several years. Google+ has over 135 million active members. Creating a listing on Google+ Local gives you a way to connect with these people.
