When does a search engine show a local result?
« on: 01-12-2016, 06:29:49 »
Typically, Google, Yahoo! and Bing will show a local result if a region name is in a keyword search, like 'London pet salons', and if it's clearly a locally-focused business. Some SEO expert’s points out that the search engines check your IP address as well. But the search engines won't say for sure.
Here you notice for the term “IT Consultant Reston Va”, that the maps and PPC (Pay per Click) dominate the first page. This can no longer be ignored and MUST be part of your online marketing strategy.

In early August 2015, Google released a new local search display format that will have a major impact on local businesses. The update was not a change in local search ranking factors, but rather a change in the way local business information is displayed on the search engine results page (SERP).
Here is a step-by-step guide to getting your site listed in Google Local:

  • Check Google Local (local.google.com) to see if your business is already listed.
  • If your listing isn’t there yet, go to https://www.google.com/local/add/login.
  • Sign in to your Google account.
  • Submit your free business listing by following the online instructions.
  • Select a verification method
