Did you know that your results on local searches. Such as Google Places, Bing Maps, and searches on your cell phone, all depend on your company’s positive reviews? You must have a presence, as well, in all of the major local search, yellow pages, and review sites? If your not listed in some or all of these sites sites chances are you’re not ranking very well on Local Search Results.
Considering there are over 300 million searches per day and 60% of them are in one way or another tied to local search results. Local search is something you should probably be looking into.
You will notice that our name is Tranquil Blue web design co. We use keywords in our name to gather people searching for those keywords. Since Google receives a lot of submissions for listings it doesn’t trust all listings are legitimate. Google and other local search engines check each others’ listings for accuracy. So if your listing exists in Google, Yahoo, Bing, Yelp, and many more. Then Google assumes your listing is correct and displays it higher in listings. Also it double checks that all of the information is the same on other engines. The more local sites it can verify your information on the more Google trusts your listing. So it is beneficial to get your listing with the same exact info on many local engines. And don’t forget to use your top keyword.
