Search is map crazy! Claim your business NOW


The Internet has gone map crazy and location based search is all the rage. If you have a physical location and you want customers to find you when they search Google, Yahoo or a myriad of other sites, then follow this advice.

Every month there are more than 10 billion unique searches across the web. It is claimed that 40% of those searches have local intent. This means that people are looking for your products, services and your business right under your nose. If you haven’t claimed your business, then you aren’t showing your best in the map results.

All it takes is a few minutes of your time and you can update your listing and claim your business. Once you complete this step then the search engines may put your location front and center on a map before they show any additional search results. Now that’s a great advantage.

A simple way to find the top places to get listed can be found on getlisted.org you can also download a free booklet from MioWorks that provides individual site links and 4 more tips on how to take advantage of the Internet for your small business. Here is the direct download for the PDF.
