Google has been able to quite accurately determine when people are searching for something that relates to a local result. So for example, if you were to type in “florist” or “dentist” (in fact almost any service based industry), Google will automatically display a map and a whole bunch of businesses within your area.
Google can even detect where you are searching from, based on your IP address, and will automatically show the results close to you.
So what this means, is you need to make sure your business is showing up in these maps results, and preferably near the top.
We can optimise your Google Places listing, and make sure that your website has the best chance of showing up at the top of all the listings in the maps results.
We can also assist you with promoting your listing with offers, vouchers etc
